{fashion meets decor: pastels}

I love love love all of the soft shades of pastel we saw on the runways for Spring 2012, and I cannot wait to sport them once the sun finally comes out in Vancouver {I better not hold my breath}!




Mint is looking fresh and fabulous ...



And I adored the sherbet apricot and lilac shades at Phillip Lim:

My favorite of all the pastels - soft turquoise, I'm loving all the pastel pants around on pinterest and fashion blogs:

Are you swooning for these soft shades?

Yeah for Tina & Meesh on the giveaway!
Oh those pastels are so dreamy.....like yummy gelato or sherbet!
I love your rustic glam idea bout the wood...fabulous....if your ever looking for a great gold mirro...although not quite as groovey as the big one in the picture...give me a shout I have lots!
p.s. have a great rest of the week and hope your "schooling" is going well!

I agree - I am in need of some sorbet colors and pastels in my wardrobe to celebrate spring. I am so tired of black and gray! Thanks for sharing these happy images, Cynthia

I spy with my little eye some inspiring outfits that I want. I also see some really adorable pics that inspire me to shoot little pastel vignettes. I so need this color on such a grey day.
