Pastels vs. Black

IMG_9059Happy monday everybody!

I couldn’t help but notice that I’ve been wearing lots and lots of black and dark colors lately. I have always been a big fan of black since I think there is nothing that makes a woman look that elegant. You can’t make anything wrong with a black pair of jeans or a lovely coat.

That’s exactly the thing here: You can’t make anything wrong. I’m really a little fraidy-cat when it comes to colors. I totally love bold colors, a bride yellow or a fiery red. But since I’m a ginger girl I have always been careful with colors as we just can’t wear a lot (at least that is what they preach us).

Of course a lot of models have shown us how incredible a ginger girl looks wearing colors. Think of Lily Cole or actresses like Julianne Moore.

However, I have to admit that the current pastel trend really plays into my hands as I can reject my beloved black but don’t have to move that far out of my comfort zone.

Here I am wearing a dress I bought in Milan a few years ago. I fist thought it looked like a hanging bag but when I put a belt over it it fell really nicely. What do you think?
