The Look: Pastels in Paradise

pastel playsuit beach


Bright hues and punchy patterns are inevitably what we automatically reach for when the sun is out and the beach is on!  Today I am here to show you that pastels are just as red hot.

Set against the serene, turquoise backdrop of Fitzroy Island, this grey-lilac romper* is a softer scream of Summer.

Read on for more of this stunning Lookbook playsuit*, as well as a cheeky styling tip from yours truly!

My obsession sheer love for playsuits continues with this cute, lace-embellished, number from Lookbook Store*. I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out if it was grey or lilac; I felt like I was having my own personal #thedress crisis! 

This grey-lilac (see, compromise) playsuit is surprisingly striking as a beach get-up! It looks so cute against a tan and makes the Tropical North Queensland sea look even more bright blue! Just a funny fact for you; this beach is called Nudey Beach! Despite the R rated name, everyone was thankfully wearing clothes!

If you didn't notice two different varieties of this look in the photos above, I challenge you to a game of Where's Wally.

Given up? Here's a hint, it's wrapped around my neck!

Two Ways To Wear A Tie Belt
Got a playsuit or dress with a fabric wrap around belt? You're in luck! That little strip of fabric is absolute gold when it comes to styling...

DIY fabric choker
Alternatively, tie it around your neck for a matching (and free) fabric choker. Boom! I feel as smart as Steven Hawking for figuring this out!

  26. I have never ever thought about tying it around the neck so it would look like a choker but this is why I love coming to your blog, Rachel. You're generous with styling tips and I never fail to learn something from you.

  58. I love the grey-lilac colour of the romper. It's beautiful! And I love both of the ways you styled it. Using the belt as a choker is such a fun idea! And I love the necklace and earrings paired with it as well. These photos are gorgeous! The "Nudey" beach is beautiful, thank goodness everyone was clothed, haha.

    Found your blog through another blogger friend.
    Really love your style and aesthetics.
    Loved this romper and both the looks your are wearing.
    My personal favorite though is the belt worn as a skinny scarf.
    Love the location too. Have a great rest of your week!
