pastel dreams

posted by on 2013.05.12, under outfits


you probably can’t tell from all the black and white outfits i’ve been posting that i’m actually a big fan of pastel, especially any variations of pink. in my closet, there has been many sherbet pieces collected and neglected over the years. i’m drawn to the femininity and warmth of the color, but also intimated by its sweetness at the same time. like this marc by marc jacob striped camisole that i bought almost 10 years ago (one of my very first designer pieces.) i think i might have worn it total of 3 times in fear of looking too “cutesy.” i guess the bows probably didn’t help the case, but i think it’s for that very same reason that i love this piece so much.  i just can’t seem to part with it because it makes me feel so happy and girly every time i see it… even if it’s just hanging in the closet.

    I love this outfit. It’s summery, yet cozy at the same time. My favorites are the bag and the shoes. It’s almost like I can’t see the red soles, but they’re there, no?


    • yvonne

      yeah, these have red soles. maybe it’s just the angle of the camera that you can’t see the soles.

  • Stefanie

    Ooo, love the bag.

  • Kashaya

    Lovely look.

  • S

    You look fabulous. Love every single piece you wear. The striped camisole with the bows is really cute. I would wear it all the time (it´s not too cute) :D


  • alicia

    Omg.. i literally adore every single thing you re wearing! You look amazing! xxx


    Love this outfit, you looks so gorgeous!

  • Jess L

    You’ve hit it right on the nail. I could never really figure out why some pieces remain in my closet even though they don’t get much wear. This is such a soft feminine outfit and I’m still coveting your Miu Miu bow bag! I’m so happy it’s made another appearance. It’s too bad they don’t have that color anymore.

    • yvonne

      i know! i hate it when designers make something so pretty, but then stop making it!

  • shades of voguish

    lovely look! love your sense of style!


  • lisa

    ahhh i didn’t even see the bows until you mentioned it but that is SUUUUUUUCH a cute detail! it’s no wonder you’ve had it for so long!! i loveee love that big sweater cardigan on you look so warm and sweet! you look lovely in sweet and soft colors yvonne!

  • Joanna

    The shoe is the perfect shade of nude for you!

    That bow! Dark or light, you always look good girlfriend. I love the pastel on you, and even more I love that you’ve had this shirt for a decade! What? Love.

  • CodeOverdressed

    The camisole is in deed very sweet, love how the slouchy pants contrast that sweetness into a more chic look, the heels are just perfect for the look!

    Cee. ♥
