Blue Moon


I'm really pumped that pastels are in for Fall, it means being able to invest in pieces now that you can wear for two seasons and being able to dust off your favorite Spring pieces from last season to wear today! Sooo heck to the Yeah
The rule for wearing fall pastels is simple, just add black. Adding black to a baby blue sweater or pastel pink dress is super simple and chic, it allows you to test out this trend without trying too hard. But since rules are meant to be broken, I'm pairing my powder blue hue with Maroon and singing the 50's classic "Blue Moon" all while doing it and writing this post. Get it: Blue + Maroon = Blue Moon. Kinda? Okay maybe not...
Guy's you're gonna be real proud of me, I actually edited today's look! I think Coco Chanel said that before you walk out the door you should look in the mirror and take one thing off. Ha, I love (well worship) Coco and all but usually do the opposite by adding another three rings or another layer of lipstick, CC is frowning down at me from somewhere, all while dripping in pearls. Anyways, I had planned to wear this hat in maroon with this look, but edited it out at the last minute - I know, who am I.  Anyways, I will never really be one to edit, but sometimes a bold color bombo, statement necklace and a ear to ear grin is enough for one outfit ;)
