It’s that time again when the ladies from JTouchofStyle and I pool our memories and photos to create a Fab Collab that spans the generations. Since it’s springtime, we’re diving into the sweet tradition of pastels in Spring. Over this coming week we’ll share style-memories from our past as well as ways we style these colors today.
As many of you know, each of us “Fab Collabers” was born in a different decade: Charlotte is in her 70s, Nancy is in her 60s, Jodie is in her 50s, and I am in my 40s. As a result, our memories offer quite a range of fashion history!
My story kicked off the Fab Collab yesterday but today I share an excerpt from Jodie’s blog where she presents her “pastel memories,” along with a modern style pastel-lovers are sure to adore. Click on over to her post so you don’t miss a thing and then be sure to stop by tomorrow for Nancy’s story and Friday for Charlotte’s!
Below is a sneak peek of the week ahead!
And now on to a preview from Jodie’s story:
When I was going back through my school photos, I thought the most interesting theme I could see was the fact that up until about 5th grade, I always wore red for my school photos. After that, I noticed that the color changed to pink. Of course, I could theorize that my mom chose the red outfits for me, and I chose the pink ones. And who knows? Maybe that is the case. Is there some deep, psychological fact from those observations? That’s what I wonder!!
Along this time period in my photo album, I came upon these 2 pictures, and I knew I wanted to showcase these. I must have had a ton of pastels in my closet, because this was an occasion when my dad took us to a photographer. I was instructed to take along 2 different outfits, and both of mine are pastels!
