The Carrie Diaries: Florals & Pastels

If you absolutely LOVE fashion and you were a fan of Sex and the City, then you have probably been watching CW's new show The Carrie Diaries.  This show is my new favorite show, it is a show about Carrie Bradshaw before she was Sex and the City.  It takes place in the 80's which I love, I grew up in the 80's but I did not get to choose what I wore since I was only a little girl. I love how some things are coming back in style again.  It gives me an opportunity to play with my wardrobe and incorporate the past with the present. 

The first episode showed Donna who is Carrie's rival in the show wearing a floral jean jacket.  I got all excited because I had a floral jacket I had purchased at Rue 21 on clearance, but I couldn't figure out what to wear it with.  Although I was never anything like Donna in she show (the mean girl) I admire here style.  My look is not as daring as Donna's since I am a mother of 4 I have to make it mommy appropriate.  I decided to mix my floral jacket with pastels, and I really like how it turned out!
