How to Wear Grown Up Pastels

The color lilac brings me back to my childhood, the days when things were easier; it damn sure didn’t feel that way then!  The stresses of delivering love notes to the boy I liked, lunch money to buy cheese fries and getting the latest sneakers (this one still remains true 😜 ).  I loved this color so much I would wear it from head to toe and my mom would actually let me walk around looking like a crayola!  I’ve always had a very dedicated passion for fashion but that sure didn’t mean they were the best ideas.  I won’t even go in to my red obsession.  These days I am much more conservative with lilac and other pastels because I don’t dig looking like a easter egg anymore.  So these Reebok X Face Stockholm  sneakers in color lilac are my new best friends.

Summer may be over according to retail stores but in Los Angeles is in full swing!  I am not yet ready to give up my summer tan and the pale summer tones.  I might have to go chase summer in Mexico again. ☀️

calvin3 Less is more…the perfect weekend outfit 💜  Don’t be afraid to mix and match pastels like the color lilac and baby blue.  I try to stick to the same cool tones.  I broke down the light color story with a dark purse.

calvin5I had these sneakers in white a few thousand moons ago and they are still as comfortable as I remember!  These Reebok X Face collab though has me over the moon 🌚 Monochrome at it’s best!  #colorlilac

calvin7One thing that rubbed off from growing up with 3 brothers is wearing baseball hats. I like to wear them for functionality (sun protection or skipping hair wash 😉 ) and for style like this retro CK hat.  Was anyone else crazy for the CK One unisex fragrance like me?? 🙈
