EBEW: Pastels

For April's Everybody,Everywear challenge our task was to dress using pastel colors.

Pastels | Everybody, Everywear

This is a big trend for spring and is the exact opposite of the neon/brights trend.
Remember when I went looking for the color mint green in my closet and couldn't find any.
  Well, I broke down and bought these cute little mint green pants.
I thought a mix of pastels would be cool. 
 So, I mixed pink, blue and green.
Added a little sparkle with the sequins and bracelet.
  The leopard flats just anchor the outfit with the dark colors.
I decided that if I was going to break out the pastels today that it was time to organize my closet for spring/summer.  My tip for closet organization is this:
  • When you add your spring/summer pieces turn the hangers backwards. 
  •  After you wear it you turn the hanger the correct way. 
  •  When it is time to add your fall clothes whatever pieces have the hanger still turned around you can donate!
Do you organize your closet for the seasons?
What is a tip that helps you stay organized?
