The Creative Closet - Pastel Me

The Creative Closet

I'm linking up with Jana today over at Life Could Be A Dream. If you have never visited Jana's blog then I urge you to drop by.  She's a young Mom and has a lovely blog and blogs about such interesting topics.  And, each Tuesday she hosts "The Creative Closet" with different styles, colors or clothing items featured.  This week's feature is all about pastel colors.
 I love, love pastels!  I found the two tops I am wearing in the pictures today in two of my favorite pastel colors, baby blue and a salmon pink.
They are a peasant style that reminds me of dresses and tops that I wore back in the early 70's.  The biggest difference is that the dresses and tops then usually had elastic around the sleeves and today we see more of the angel wing sleeves.  And, while I think they are so lovely and very feminine, they can get in the way, especially if you are reaching for something. 
My daughter was visiting when I was doing these photos and I could tell that she thought it was pretty silly. ~laugh~ And, I suppose it is, outside, taking picture of ones self with a tripod to be used on their blog.  But, I had fun and since my blog is my hobby and something I thoroughly enjoy, then I just went with it. ~big smile~
And, at least I had a gorgeous background with our azalea's in full bloom. The photos are not near as brilliant as I would like for them to be but I took them on a icky, rain threatening, morning. ~excuses, excuses~
