Pretty Pastels

DSC_1090I have a hard time saying goodbye to summer clothing, colors, weather, activities etc. so you’ll most likely see me rockin’ the bright and happy shades on my nails well into the winter months every year, mostly out of nostalgia. So when I saw Giambattista Valli’s breathtaking Fall collection for this year, I was inspired to incorporate similar colors and textures into my wardrobe. What better way to start than with accessories…

Here I layered three similar necklaces to create the appearance of one chunky necklace, I believe accessories are an easy way to dress up a simple outfit.

Distressed denim may not survive the harsh Canadian winters but it can still be a versatile piece in any wardrobe this fall.
