Pink and Pastels Styled for Spring

Pastels Styled for Spring …

Pastels

Hmmm. Pastels for Spring. “Groundbreaking.” (I just had to!)

Something about pastels that keep us calm. A serene and soft color pallet will bring back memories of Springtime, cotton candy at the amusement park, robin’s Easter eggs, and mint green ice cream. Something about pastel colors that make us excited to wear them, perhaps it is the softness, the gentle shades, such as mint green, lilac, butter yellow and robin’s egg blue hues.

Bright pink or “hot pink” is a color that is trending presently, but softer pinks also are having their moment this Spring. I am wearing this pink blouse from A New Day (Target from a few yrs. ago) and have added this silk scarf that has a blend of pastel shades painted in a melded convergence.

I tend to wear lighter denim this time of year and these raw hemmed Loft jeans do the trick. I am also wearing a pale pink pair of Betsey Johnson sandals with a pearl heel. You could certainly choose to go either way with a neutral shoe ( lending the  pastel attention to the blouse, scarf and bag) or go “all in” and wear a pastel shade sandal or slide. There certainly are some great pastel shoes for Spring!

Check out these slides, these heels , these heels, and these flat sandals.

There are some great color mixes and try combining some pastels you haven’t thought of. I love the mix of lilac and yellow, or a soft robin’s egg blue with a cream yellow.

My Brahmin bag is probably 10 years old, and is in a periwinkle blue. ( Color of the year- Read HERE)  Needless to say, it isn’t available, but you may find one of Ebay or Poshmark if you care to look there. Since I have been featuring some bags as of late, I will most likely do a post on Spring bags! ( tell me if you are a “bag” lady, or should I say, a lady who enjoys quality bags!) LOL.

Life Lately

Just busy working in the garden, I bought my mom a few items for her’s for Mother’s Day. It’s been a joy to be able to sit out in our newly decorated deck, and I have relaxed with a few excellent books recently. I highly recommend, The Last Bookshop in London, by Madeline Martin  and The Last Thing He Told Me, by Laura Dave.. I was very engrossed in these books, the first being historical fiction during WWII, and the second a suspenseful read. Guitar teaching is going well, and I am ready to take on a few more students. I am “old-school” and find the ease of putting up flyers years ago, very effective. Now everything is about a website and getting people there.

What are your favorite pastel colors of 2022?

    Super spring outfit! The colors are perfect together. I especially like the scarf — it’s gorgeous. Also, the sleeves and the wrap style of the blouse. It’s a great look overall.

      I received it from a artsy company called Una Alla Volta, and was surprised to find it on Etsy , but there it is! That is nice – I need to pick up some more flowers for my self watering planter.

    You look good in just about every colour out there Jess! The pastels are super pretty on you too. I don’t wear them that often, but I guess I would gravitate towards the pinks as well.

      Thank you Suzy, I try and pick colors that are more flattering on me. I don’t wear a ton of pastels but would like lilac.

    I just love this color scheme and that scarf is fabulous Jess.
    I am more old school sometimes too, but I’m trying to keep up with technology so I don’t get left behind. I swear I don’t want to end up like the buggy whip.
