  1. i love that photo and all of these outfits! I have that red polka dot h&m top and am obsessed!


  2. Thank you very much! I'm jealous you have that top! So adorable :)

  3. I'm loving the trend, especially because I can't wear nudes or pastel colors. So I've always been a big sucker for bold colors! Sometimes I wish I had fairer skin.

  4. I agree nudes and pastels can be tricky! Maybe you can wear the bold colors you like and sneak in some lighter colors with accessories so you have a little bit of both :)
