Spring trends: Pastels

This is probably going to be my favorite trend this coming spring mainly because of its versatility , you can go all out with all pastels for a very feminine look or you can incorporated in a edgier outfit for a beautiful juxtaposition of hard and soft.
This trend has been incorporated in their spring shows by designers such as Karl Lagerfelt , Donna Karan and Katherine Malandrino.

Wearing shorts in the winter may scare some of you , well it’s really not that hard just make sure you have a nice pair of tights to keep you nice and warm.
You can wear pretty much any of your shorts just make sure they are not too summery .
When I wear shorts I try to balance it out by wearing an oversize knit . You can still wear your favorite T just throw on a warmer jacket over it.

January favorites

This past month was a crazy one for me, therefor speed and comfort were the most important for my style.
When it comes to makeup I’ve been keeping it simple and fast with just foundation, mascara and a long lasting lip stain. I’ve had to buy a new foundation because my skin has been acting up from stress . What I ended up buying was the Burjois flower beauty foundation and so far I’ve been liking it and it does give amazing coverage without looking too much. My favorite mascara has been the Too Faced Lashgazam . I’ve also been loving the Max Factor Lipfinity duo , I only use the mat side and I fully recommend it for its lasting power.
My style has been really simple and cosy with leggings a simple T and a cosy cardigan( especially the textured ones) . My accessories have also been simple with combat boots and scarves being essentials for the cold weather. A great life saver have been hair accessories to hide bad hair days
