Ok, if I'm honest, it's not really pastel. But I always feel true pastels look "dirty" against my skin, so this mid tone (and shiny!) blue feels much more flattering while still giving off the pale Spring vibe. This was a $10 find at the San Telmo flea market in Buenos Aires - my favorite of the trip! I love the not-too-boxy fit, the sheen, the metal zippers, and the black plaid running through that keeps it from feeling too sweet.
To keep a longer line, I paired the jacket with my favorite faded, 100% cotton blue jeans. And as an extra nod to spring, I half tucked this hi-low white blouse underneath. At first I was not sure about the tuck with the length of the jacket, but somehow it felt better than a full tuck or untucked. The citron bag hearkens back to Angie's New Year's post, where she paired her pale blue sweater with an apple green jacket. I loved the extra jolt of edge that the sour color brings to the soft blue.
In other news, this was my first sandal-wearing for the year (in the US, at least... vacation doesn't count). I have to say I get a kick from my black patent toes matching my black patent shoes. ;)
Throwing in #3, too, since I forgot to post it before leaving. Really loving these Big Star straight legs with mega cuff!
