Pastel Skies

I don’t often wear typically girly colours or prints; my wardrobe consists of a lot of black, a bit of white and a few pops of colour in between, also I don’t own a proper floral dress. I was willing to make an exception for this pastel blouse, though. The dreamy waterfloral print and the soft mixture of pink, sky blue and violet on a white background reminds …

Shopping Etiquette
