FASHION FROM ABROAD: Pretty in Pastel

March 30th, 2016 at 2:00am

Spring is just around the corner and the weather is finally turning around. Spring trends are moving closer and closer. I have loved catching up with the fashion here in Europe. In particular, last week I traveled and was able to take a peek into the Edinburgh Fashion Week which looked amazing. In addition to that, my friends here this weekend in Rome were able to casually stop by the Fendi store where Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner, Bella Hadid and other celebrities made an appearance. This event was full of lavish outfits and of course plenty of long-legged models strutting down the red carpet. Living amidst all of this fashion feels like a dream. I am trying to learn as much as I can and of course share my experiences along the way.

In Italy, I have noticed the locals go from one day wearing heavy fur and down jackets, to light sweaters and t-shirts the next day. How to make this transition without looking like you’re jumping right into summer should be easy! This Fashionista drew my attention with her casual yet adorable outfit for class this week. She pairs an oversized and comfy Urban Outfitters pastel sweater with a long sleeve white T-shirt. Putting her outfit together she adds dark jeans, a tiny necklace, light booties and a light lip color. I think that this is a great look and is easy to attain. The Fendi spring show this year was full of subtle pops of color accompanying basic looks like all white, all black or pastel shades. It is fun to incorporate little color to a casual outfit sometimes. Try adding a scarf, a statement necklace, accessory or cute edgy bag to add to your everyday looks.

Some of my favorite places to shop are stores that I find here on little side streets. At home, I feel the same way. I am obsessed with local shops and boutiques and love to talk to the people who own them. Small store owners can be super personable and help you put together the look you are desiring. This Fashionista purchased her cute booties at a little shoe store near a market in town. They are Italian leather and will be sure to last for a long time ahead; What a great investment to bring home. Try checking out some of your local shops; You never know what charming finds you might come upon!
