What I Wore: Pretty Pastels

What I Wore {living outside the stacks}

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a What I Wore post just because… And, well, quite honestly, this isn’t a “just because” one either. I happened to see Jen’s Style Imitating Art post for this month and I was like, wow, I’m totally matching her inspiration piece today; I’m in!

Venus {NASA Space Tourism Poster}

The inspiration piece {selected by Salazar from 14 Shades of Gray} is the Venus poster that was created by the Jet Propulsion Lab {JPL} of the California Institute of Technology to celebrate NASA’s study of the exoplanets.

I don’t normally wear soft colors, but I’ve been digging pale pink jeans for the longest time and when I saw this cute little eyelet top, well, I was just all heart~eyed and decided to give it a whirl. Definitely out of my comfort zone, but hands down, one of my favorite outfits. I wore it to work on Monday and was way over dressed considering it’s summer break and none of our students are on campus, but I felt pretty. So…

That statement necklace has been in my closet forever. I think I’ve worn it one other time. When I bought it, statement necklaces were huge, but I wasn’t sure how to style it because it doesn’t fit with my boho styling but I think paired with the flowy eyelet top, it does have a bit of a boho flair to it. And how fabulous are those shoes? When I saw them, I was like oh~my~word, I have to have them {you can see the backs of them here, trust me, it’s worth a peek}. The Kiani is basically the summer version of my favorite pair of boots {which also happen to be Miz Mooz}.

    You always wear neutrals so well. I am loving this soft monochromatic look. That pretty statement necklace stands out Daneel. But I am especially loving your natural curly hair, just fabulous!

    Welcome by and join my new linkup from this week. It just went so share your beautiful style. Thanks, Ada. =)


    • Thank you, Ada. I apologize for the late reply, we’ve been all over the place this summer. I’ll definitely link up.

  • Love, love, love!!! Everything about this is fabulous and I really like the mood you set with your photography.

    • Thank you!! I wish I could turn my dining room into a photography studio — the light is perfect!

    You should totally wear more pastels. Love the shoes!!

    • Thank you. I never really think of myself as a pastel person, but I do like them once I put them on. And those shoes are incredibly comfortable too.

  • At first I thought it was a cool vintage album cover then your tracker tipped me off!! You look gorgeous and free with your beautiful hair growing out! Have fun my friend!!

    • LOL Thank you. And that Fitbit, I always forget about it until I see it in the pictures. I’m just so used to wearing it now. And, yes, my hair is totally growing out. It’s so much longer than it looks — shrinkage ain’t a joke.

      • The Fitbit is the ultimate photo bomber!! The shrinkage is real indeed friend, but embrace it anyway.
        Enjoy your sweet family this weekend. Camping??

  • Love this!! You look amazing and the lighting on the photos just adds a special touch.

    • Thank you so much. The light by that window is just perfect.

  • Jen

    You look SO fabulous, and these pics are also fantastic. LOVE everything about this post! (Except for the fact that you are on summer break already?! We just got done with midterms here in the PNW. Sigh… )

    • Thank you. I couldn’t wait for 29 May to share. LOL I’m so not used to wearing pastels. But I’m still going to link up for SIA. Campus feels so empty without the students. A few of the ones that I taught came to say goodbye to me because they’re graduating or continuing their studies elsewhere. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been there long enough to see students moving on.

  • Wow wee! You should do style posts more often. This is such a lovely and coincidental interpretation of the poster Jen featured for SIA. I have a window open on my laptop with her post so I can consider what I might have in my closet to wear for this go-round. The outtake is my favorite pic because it gives me a sense of the off-camera you.

    • Thank you. I love her SIA posts. They’re so creative. And it is kinda fun going through my closet to see what I can find.

      My daughter had me laughing sooooo hard. I would’ve shared those photos too but they were a bit too blurry.
