pastel me about it

You guys know I love colorblocking, and this season is all about doing it with pastels. As much as I adore the colors, the trend can skew a bit frilly for my taste, so I decided to mix things up a bit by putting together a pastel outfit inspired by menswear. The skinnies are from Gap (available here, but if you want plus sizes they have similar ones at Evans), and the top and brogues are ASOS (available here). The sunnies are ASOS too (here), which I thought completed the look perfectly; I felt like a modern day Diane Keaton/Annie Hall, which can only be a good thing.

PPS-I got a new facebook page (unfortunately FB doesn't allow you to change the name of a public page). Make sure you don't miss out on new updates--you can like it here!

  12. I love it! I love the fact that it's inspired by menwear, but the pastels still add that feminine touch. I've always loved pastels so this gets an A+ in my book! And I love the jewelry and sunnies! :)

  48. I liked the outfit overall. I think the orange bracelet was a little overdone, but it would have looked a little more simple with out it. I love the shoes so much, wish New Look made an (eee) fitting. But u did the outfit Justice :)

  56. Hi! I am from Poland and I just saw your photo in our most-viewed online info site. Then I found you and your site and I must say I am amazed... You are just fabulous! FANTASTIC! I have some extra pounds and I was always afraid of going on the beach. When I saw your photo - wow, I have nothing to add - I'm going to the shop, buy some saxy outfit and I just have to believe in myself - then look as pretty and cool as you! Thank you and I've just added your site to my favs!

  58. Hi! I'm a brand new reader, I just found your blog today. Your fashion is so inspirational! You are one of my new style icons, and just by reading a few pages of your blog I now have a better understanding of how to style myself.

    I've always struggled with being plus size and wanting to have some sort of fashion sense, but my mother always pressed on me the importance of looking as slim as possible - and that's what made you look good. But I don't see things that way, which is why I felt so at home reading your blog, like someone finally understood where I was coming from.

    Again, you're a true inspiration! This is one of my favorite outfits you have posted. You are a truly gorgeous girl!!

    Much Love
    Annie xx

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!??...... your stlye is just like mine and I'm gonna rock it no matter what ppl have to say! THANK YOU GABI for inspiring me.....
