Spring into Pastels
Seeing as how it’s the first days of Spring, and Easter is around the corner, I’m thinking we all need to go shopping. Remember when I was all worried about the winter months up here in Boston? Well, let’s just say that, except for a brief moment, Winter never really made much of an appearance.
When I think of Spring, I think of flowers and rain and grass. I think of ladylike dresses that you wear to tea and little girls playing with their dolls in a garden wearing pretty white mary janes. That could just be me, though.
Imagine my ridiculous amounts of glee when I saw the first ads, and subsequently the fashion show, for Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012. Really, try to imagine me gasping and saying “Oooooo! I want!” in a little girl voice. Pastels and ladylike designs completely encompassed the show and the campaign seems like a bubblegum filled candyland. Like a Marie Antoinette marshmallow filled macaron…
Do you see those shoes?! FANTASTICAL! Of course, after seeing those I had to search the interwebs for other pastel candy colored shoes to
Why not start here? Boutique 9′s Piraya are adorableness for only $78. They combine the colorblocking aspect that is still very popular with this season’s pastel hues. These can be worn with literally anything.
I will freely admit that I am lusting after these Anthropologie wedges. I like the architectural feel of the actual heel. Besides that, the blue color is one of my favorite hues with a softer feel. They are sexy without being overtly so.
Besides the fact that I have a crush on Stuart Weitzman’s designs, I love these blush colored sandals. Perfect for Spring, don’t you think?
Normally, I don’t do sneakers. Unless I’m working out. Which is rare because I’m ridiculously lazy. However, sneakers, at least cute ones, have become popular among you ladies. So, in an homage to the Keds I used to wear as a little girl, here are these pale yellow Vans. What I like most are the rawhide laces. A cute addition that might even persuade me to get a pair of sneakers!
What do you think of this Spring’s Pastel trend? Are you loving it? Or do you think pastels are only for Easter eggs and baby girls? Sound off and let me know!
