Fair warning, a lot of the stuff I used in this look is not currently available.

I’ve been feeling such a lack of creativity and inspiration for a long time. The past several looks have been very forced. I wanted to take a day to use anything I felt like from my collection whether discontinued or not in hopes of breaking out of that lull. 

I dunno that it really helped me feel more creative but it did help my mood a bit.

Originally the idea I had swirling in my head was “winter sunrise” but it turned into more of a pastel candy look. 

Where I work, I can hardly see outside but the building does have some small windows. Last winter I worked very early in the morning and occasionally, depending on the weather, there were some gorgeous colorful sunrises. The plan was to use peaches, corals, and lavenders but then I ended up bringing in lots of blue which changed the whole feel of it. 

99% of the time, these things do not turn out the way I plan but it does help to have some sort of idea in mind at first.
