Mom Wear to Work Wear: Peachy Pink Pastels (Looks 19+20).

As you all know I picked out a lot of items in the blush pink family, for my Summer capsule items. So among all the bottoms I had these Light Coral Scalloped Shorts and this Light Pink Pleated Chiffon Skirt (already styled here). One of the blouses I included was this Coral/Sky Blue/Perwinkle/Pink "Ashton" Blouse by The Limited (R.I.P.). The Ashton Blouse is very similar to the Portofino Shirts by Express. They mostly came in reversible long sleeves but they also made some sleeveless ones or in my case this Folded-Over Cap Sleeve version which I loved. It is the perfect Breezy Summer Blouse that can be dressed up or down, as you can see by my collage above and in this Remix Mom Wear to Work Wear post. This blouse perfectly matched both the shorts and the skirt.

Just like yesterday's outfit, I went for a monochromatic look, with a Patterned Top and Solid Bottom (bottoms, in this case). When doing a capsule wardrobe it is important to pick items in a few color categories for a smooth and easy mix+match wardrobe. My Mom Wear look paired the shorts with my Beaded Pom-Pom Sandals which pick up all the colors of the blouse. My hair was pulled back in a low ponytail and I had on my Matte Blush Sunnies, a few Colorful Beaded Bracelets and my Blue Fireball Dainty Necklace. These shorts are actually quite dressy because of the fuller, all-lined material, their elegant style and of course the adorable scalloped hem, but I managed to dress them down while still looking very put together for a day off. I cannot wait to re-style these shorts again, however I will probably dress them up next.

Fast-forward two days later and this outfit was worn to work, the blouse paired with the pretty girly skirt this time (though both the skirt and the shorts are girly and feminine). I love how one has the scallop detail and the other has the pleats. I kept the same jewelry and added my Spiral Bracelet (which I had worn as a ponytail holder, with the shorts' look) and I also added some Light Peach Flower Stud Earrings with a tiny pearl in the middle. I kept the look all monochrome and chose all colors in the blush, pink, peach and nude category so I accessorized with a Skinny Light Peach Belt over the Skirt and wore my Nude Faux Suede Block Heel Sandals with the Fun Oversized Buckle. To tell you the truth the belt was just added as an accessory/for style. It didn't really hold up the skirt. But I particularly loved how the second outfit turned out. Which one of these two looks is your favorite, today?!
