brights vs. pastels

As someone who gravitates towards colour and pattern, I find that I'm often among the minority when it comes to dressing for the colder months.  Now that the sun is shining and BBQ season is just around the corner, merchandisers are starting to bring out the brights and the pastels.  Both have their time and place, I love to wear brights to punch up a basic outfit and pastels are great for a subtle accessory.

Online retailer AMI Clubwear, provided me with an opportunity to review a couple of their accessories and I chose the Fuchsia Green Two Tone Faceted Set & the Light Pink Faceted Set , perfect pieces to transition my wardrobe from winter to spring.

 I wore this outfit for a busy day of work, vintage shopping, running errands & meetings.

AMI Clubwear is based out of SoCal and each season their buyers travel to designer showrooms to select the new trends.  They add new items to their site weekly, their prices are affordable and the products funky!

This is the outfit I'm going to wear to my sister's graduation from Acadia University (in Nova Scotia), on Mother's Day. 

Do you prefer accessorizing with brights or pastels?


  1. How cute. I love the first outfit. I'm a bright-color gal.

  2. I am brights all the way
    Love the first set the most, but both are great

  3. Love the first necklace. You look great

  4. A tiger print dress! I love it.


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
