winter pastels are making a statement this year. once reserved with spring’s blooming flowers mint green and blushing pink are now appropriate to wear come january. pastels are incredibly bold amidst a sea of dark colors. so out came my military inspired blazer with brass button accents. this is a decidedly masculine piece and i love the contrast against the feminine pink. the ootd is kept sleek and chic with simple accessories — black pumps, belt, and handbag. nine-to-five just got a whole lot prettier thanks to a pop of pastel. take that winter.

    Oh, this is so wonderful! Love the look, you had me at first glance, the jacket is to die for! I have never (really, never ever) owned a pair of pink slacks or jeans, but after seeing yours, I think I’ll change that. The black heels are beautiful as well. Looking great… as you always do.
