A Lesson in Pastels

pas·tel

1    [pa-stel; especially Brit. pas-tl]

noun 1. a color having a soft, subdued shade

IFB Project #37 is all about spring and pastels. I’m lucky I just bought that perfect lilac jacket yesterday! Also, going through the entries on the main page, I realize not everyone understands pastel. I mean, not every fashion blogger went to school for fashion like I did, but I still feel it important to understand your passions. So this post, an outfit post, will also include a little information about pastels, and a glimpse into those pastel pieces of my wardrobe.

A pastel, as noted above, is a soft subdued shade. A lighter hue of a COLOR. This includes lilacs, soft pinks, baby blues, mints, white, et cetera. Which are all COLORS mixed mostly of white, if we’re talking about acrylic paints. This does not include bright pinks or neutral hues of basic colors.

Pastels:

NOT Pastels:

I hope this has cleared up any confusion in the blogosphere. Back to pastels, stay tuned for a post of my inspirations for my trip to Costa Rica next week; plenty of pastels will be packed!
