Pastel Pop

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I had been eyeing this crochet blouse on Ruche's website for quite a while until I finally took the plunge and bought it. That's the thing about me and online shopping. I will keep items in my shopping cart for weeks—or even months—before I finally make the commitment to buy them. And when I finally hit "purchase," it is usually out of some random momentary impulse that only comes around once in a blue moon. For instance, with this blouse, I had convinced and I mean convinced myself I didn't need it. But then the stress of final exams set in...and one day I found myself desperately needing a "reward" for all my hard work. So that, my friends, is how this lovely blouse came to be :)

I decided to keep the color scheme of my outfit fairly neutral (just like I did here) to let the simple pastel lining of the blouse stand out. I really like the lilac detailing on this top, and it's one of the elements that initially drew me in. Even with the lilac pop, however, I still felt like my outfit was lacking a little color. So, I added my vintage orange necklace for another pop of color. Although I'm not usually a fan of purple and orange, I think the pastel version of the color combo works pretty well together.

P.S. How is it already Thursday of my spring break? I feel like all I have been doing this week is preparing myself for the quarter ahead and haven't had much time to just sit back and r e l a x. Seriously though...most of the time I feel like I'm just running around like a chicken with its head cut off!
