No Longer Neglected Pastels and Vivian Awwwwing.

No Longer Neglected Week continues with some Pastel Pieces. The neglected items are three: the Sweater (last worn here), the Scarf (last worn while pregnant) and the Sneakers (never worn before). When I first moved to Albania, back in November 2011, this Lavender Sweater was the first one I wore for my first night out (at an evening type of bar nevertheless). I had purchased it that Fall and loved the color and button detail on the sleeves. I wore it a lot that Fall & Winter. I wasn't blogging much then and I didn't take many Outfit Photos, but I do have at least a couple of Outfits with it on the blog. I also wore it a few times after giving birth. But it got lost around March or so (meaning it was shoved somewhere among ALL of my clothes - and I have plenty) so finally, almost a year later I am wearing it again. The Scarf has only been worn 2-3 times before. I remembered perfectly the layered Maternity Outfit I wore it with, on December 2012 when I was 8 months pregnant. I have a ton of scarves so it was lost among them. I am glad to say it makes my 5th Plaid Scarf though this is definitely more Springy/Summery. The Sneakers I had to buy because they were cute and girly enough for someone who rarely wears Tennis Shoes and I never wore them. Shame on me.

I finally wore all these pieces today, creating a Cute Casual Outfit featuring different shades of Pastel (perfect for the link up trend today over at Stylin in St. Louis). I color-blocked Lavender with Mint and Camel. But there are 3 more Colors too: Baby Blue, Gray & Baby Pink. You can definitely tell I am welcoming Spring in this Outfit (coming very soon). The best part about the Neglected Items I have featured this week, is that I have worn every single outfit in real life, not just for the sake of the blog, while wearing my neglected items (lots of neglected sweaters) and hitting every themed link-up I follow, too. What do you think of Today's Outfit? Do you have clothes that you have neglected for a long time? What do you think about Color-blocking Pastels?

I shared the first photos from this shoot on her actual 1 year Birthday. The photographer sent us a few more after her Birthday. But finally, yesterday, we received all of them. Choosing the ones below was difficult but here are some favorites. I know this is your favorite part of this post, so enjoy them!
These are all great. I love the ones of the three of us. But I think I saved the best for last. Look at her Gorgeous Blue/Grayish Eyes.


P.S. Also linking up with Kati+Elise, Sherry, Renae, Lauren and Rachel+Lena.
Stay tuned tomorrow for my very first Style Swap. Thank you for reading.
