There’s something so refreshing in wearing lighter colors now that spring is here! I did the countdown for spring to come just to wear these mint green H&M trousers. I bought them last year on a super sales-filled shopping spree, but autumn was so close so I had to store them in my closet. Since then I have patiently waited for spring to show up again.

I am in love with the pastel color of those trousers, I like the trend of colored jeans and pants mostly because colors are a simple and sincere form of expression, the one I prefer. But on the other hand these skinny pants are very high-waisted making me feel a little bit uncomfortable because I am not used to that. That is the reason why I paired them with my peplum blouse. I know, peplum is a hard fashion subject because, you know, why should I want to wear something that accentuates my hips? True, but I think the secret is always balancing the shapes of the clothes that you are wearing. In this case I find that peplum works well because it is paired with skinny pants, making volumes counterbalance in the best of ways.
