Pastels: Hit Me With Your Best Shot!

Pastels Fashion Dress
An artist has a canvas they may paint, envisioning potential works of what might end up as their masterpiece. For me as an artist (and fashionista) often those inspiring works are worn by my own physical canvas displaying my mood or even expressing a seasonal greeting


Pastels and charcoal are possibly one of my favourite art mediums to use, so it wouldn't entirely be unexpected to see one of those mediums interpreted in my clothing. Alas, I've been struck by these delicate and charming colours.


As you can imagine pastels are rocking my fashion wardrobe at the present moment. I've not been showcasing my adoration for these pale hues as much as I'd like to, but rest assured all pastel and neon items from my closet are in good spirits.

I've had this bag (above) since I was a teenager (or something like that) ... obviously a long time ago! This woven floral bag gives off nostalgic spring and summer feelings that I cherish.


This dress so easy to wear  the fabric is light, but silky smooth, and the body of the dress allows full capacity for a marvelous twirl or two ... if such a moment is needed. Of course, there's always time for a classic twirl.

I liked this quote (below), because I think all seasons are special in their own way. Though, my favourites are probably autumn and spring; I believe this sums up weather from a different perspective nicely. 


Haven't we all occasionally yearned for an opposite climate than we actually have? Then, we get the climate wanted, yet in time long for another when we're tired of it or rather when we're ready for the temp-shifting of our fashion garments. Diverse climate makes for a fabulous wardrobe you know!
