Hi ladies! Angie's post about pairing pastels with black this morning is right up my alley. One of my favorite ways to wear black, actually. As I commented on the blog, I wear this most in winter and spring; in summer I tend to swap the black for white with pastels or else simply black+white, and in the fall I tend to pair both the black and the pastels with richer more saturated shades like rust and teal versus with each other. Was inspired by the post today to do a semi-summery version for some semi-summery weather.

This tunic was an easy choice because it's black, cream, and three pastel shades (pink, yellow, blue) -- the whole post all in one go! (The colors aren't nearly as saturated as the stock photo shows.) Added peach studded flats, blush moto, and peachy-orange sunnies for a few more pastel shades; leatherette capris for texture contrast; and for some extra sparkle my sequin clutch and layered gold+silver earrings. Finished with a swipe of cherry lip gloss. Easy peasy! Somehow forgot to put on my watch (!) prior to photos, but rest assured it's on now
