If you haven't already heard, which is pretty unlikely, pastels are big this spring. Magazines, blogs and shops are brimming full of pretty pastels. What I can't help thinking though is...it's hardly really groundbreaking stuff is it?! Shock horror...pastels...spring....NO! You don't say! I feel like pastels are always 'in' for spring, maybe not quite so predominantly as this year but no-one's about to start wearing blacks and browns are they?!!
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it...in fact, I love pastel colors. The soft sugary shades are sweet, feminine and flattering on almost every skin tone. I can't help still loving some bright colours too though. I think a pop of bold colour helps to really make a pastel outfit. Plus, it's a good way to ease in to the really bright and bold colours you just know are going to be the 'summer trend'!!
I've got my eye on a few pretty 'spring' coloured things and despite not yet having any spring weather just yet I think a purchase of one or two may be imminent!.
|Essie Spring 2012 'Navigate Her' Collection - Amazon|
|Pale Blue Blazer - Topshop|
|'Beth' Peep Toe Heels - Kurt Geiger|
|Assorted Friendship Bracelets - Links of London|
In my fantasy world money grows on trees and I buy all the Links of London friendship bracelets and wear them as a colorful stack with my mint blazer. I'd have to buy the whole Essie set because I couldn't choose which one I'd want. Also, half of the appeal to me is how the set looks together, haha!
Of course, if money grew on trees I'd also buy both pairs of shoes and then get to work on finding the rest of the rainbow!
What would you buy if you had unlimited funds? Have you bought many pastels items (in reality) yet?
