This skirt is a light mint pastel color that conjures up memories of Easter dresses passed. You know, those impossibly poofy pastel dresses that you wore through all 16 hours of Easter festivities when you were a kid. Then, and now, pastels always manage to make me feel amazingly girly.
Though darker colored suits and separates are king in the corporate world, I think it's a fun change of pace to indulge in some pastel love. Really, nothing screams powerful louder than conducting very serious business in very playful colors. Stay in the same colorway, mix different pastel shades, or pair your pastels with more traditional neutrals - you really can't go wrong. Just remember to anchor your pastels with neutral accessories and you'll be office appropriate and in vogue at the same time.
Lots of Love,
