Sequins and Sea Breezes: East vs West Coast: Spring Pastels

East vs West Coast: Spring Pastels


Pastels are always a spring trend so for this post I paired up with the gorgeous Paige from Life's A Party Dress Like It to share how East vs West Coast girls style this trend. Paige has been a busy, busy girl lately; if you didn't already know, she got to attend the Oscars back in February for work (don't worry, I'm just as jealous as you probably are... the dresses, the glam... *sigh*) but she managed to fit our monthly collab in and I'm super excited! Just check out that skirt... how Lily Pulitzer chic?!? 

{You can check out Paige's outfit details here}

I actually got this outfit inspiration from a Pinterest pin I saw. The girl was wearing mint skinny jeans, a coral tank and the turquoise J. Crew bubble necklace. I thought to myself, I have everything she's wearing in this outfit except the coral tank but I did have this aqua tank. So I decided to recreate it with what I had but still wasn't totally feeling the J.Crew necklace with it so I threw on my el cheapo Forever 21 necklace and BAM, outfit complete. I love when an outfit just kinda falls together and you end up loving it. I'm absolutely loving aqua and mint together right now too. Who am I kidding? I love both aqua and mint with pretty much anything, both are easily two of my favorite shades to sport. Nothing like a great pastel color to brighten up any skin tone and when you're lacking that summer tan that's definitely a good thing! I can't wait until this weather makes up it's mind and I can actually spend some time outdoors for a bit... I'm seriously having Vitamin D withdrawals! ;)
