Today I end Dress Week 3 with a recent work look.
|Dress: LOFT Petites (Similar here)|
I paired my ivory lace and crochet dress with a pale blue blazer and yellow clutch for a soft look that also still manages to look professional.
Multiple textures add visual interest to this look, while the color palette keeps the various textures from being overwhelming.

I enjoy pastels quite a bit, but I find that many soft colors wash me out. This blue is one of the better pastels for my complexion. I usually wear any color that I like, regardless of “flattery,” sometimes wearing slightly darker make-up to avoid the wash-out effect.
If you’re a fan of pastels but don’t like them with your skin tone, you may find adding accessories, like this clutch and necklace (worn as a bracelet), to be a more suitable way to enjoy the pastel trend. Sage green nail color adds another pastel pop.

Are you a fan of pastels? How important is “flattery” in your choice of wardrobe colors?
