pale complexion

one of my favorite things about the spring is the return of pale neutrals, especially light pink and nude. i find that these shades work best with my skin color, but flesh tones bring an air of elegance and class to an outfit, regardless of your complexion.

if you're worried about being too washed-out when wearing flesh tones, make sure to add a little blush and lip gloss in a rosy color.

how do you feel about neutrals? would you/do you wear skin tones?

lovely combo!! love those colors -- not sure if i can wear them because i'm so pale myself :)

not sure what colors are best for me... probably bold & bright :)

i think this looks great on you! most people with pale skin usually shy away from flesh-tones because of the wash-out factor. i think you've got it right with the gloss and blush for color, but i think an important thing is hair color too- pale blondes just don't seem to pull off the neutrals as well as brunettes. and although i'm dark haired myself, i just don't know if i could pull it off!

I love neutrals. Being that I really love brights, neutrals are like the best friend to that. They go hand in hand and compliment each other. Lovely pics! xoxo

Love it all! The dress is whimsical and your belt is to die for.

I was actually thinking recently about how I have few to no pale tones in my closet. I'd love to pick up some patent nude heels of my own!

PRETTY! I haven't tried anything nude yet but I'm loving it on you!

The dress is so perfect <3

It's certainly lovely here! Makes me want to try it, I do often feel that I need more color than a blush or nude provides. Perhaps I can get it with a necklace though... lovely inspiration.

Oooh beautiful. And thanks for the words of advice. I discovered this evening that I seem to have a lot of white/beige/blush dresses that I never wear for fear of looking washed out or naked. Must pull them out and wear them soon.
