If you read our blog regularly (and we hope you do *wink*) you know we're not really pastel kinda gals. There's no particular reason for our pastel aversion, we just don't tend to be very drawn to them and will usually pick a bold color over a lighter one any day. But, the chance to work with Doll Me Up presented itself and we noticed how many of the items we liked just so happened to be of the pastel persuasion.... so we went for it. 

I (Amanda) was initially a little apprehensive about the Pretty Pleats Skirt because of the stretchy material and was worried about what it might look like on but, I'm so happy with it... a now I want a couple more.  This Peek-a-Boo Top isn't something I'd usually try, but I'm glad I felt brave because it's fun and the little keyhole is less revealing than I thought.  Also, I'm currently obsessed with Artisan Gerard and her adorable (and inexpensive) necklaces.  She custom made me this little lattice pie and I almost died because it's the best, I also have a peach and a Georgia one waiting to be worn.

Whenever I (Katie) pick out separates I'm always apprehensive about whether they will end up working together or not, but the Bustier Crop Top went perfect with the Cabana Beach Skirt.  The top was actually a little longer than expected so it created this great look where it wasn't too cropped when I was standing, but "in motion" it showed just enough skin.  It is pretty much the perfect top for the cooling down temperatures, especially paired with the Cropped Cardigan, which is not only perfect it also comes in SO many colors.  I definitely need to start stocking up on these to wear with my day dresses.  I used to always stray from cropped cardigans thinking they'd make me look boxy, but this one has made me see the light.
