on blues and pinks.

when you're growing up everyone always asks what your favorite color is - and for many little girls that's pink, and for many little boys it's blue. while other factors may be at play in those answers, usually as you get older the spectrum widens (purple, am i right?) but i was always torn - i really loved pink AND blue equally. and these picks below show that - in fact, even better, i love pink and blue together. all the light blue and pink pastels of the season are singing to me - i love, love, love them. i'm digging deep in my closet to find my old favorites, i'm loving everyone who is following this trend, and i might even treat myself to an item or two (see: pink lipstick). what are you loving this spring? 
Spring for Blue and Pink Pastels
blue bag: coach has been killing it lately. i am really, really impressed with the past two seasons of bags they've put out after mostly catering to a younger demographic, and this spring is no different. i definitely skew towards structured bags, and the robin egg blue here just makes this one perfect.
***
pink shirt: i have a paper thin, soft, pink t-shirt i picked up from j. crew five years ago - i'll be wearing it a lot this spring, and if i didn't have it this would fit the bill.
***
pink jade earrings: these beautiful earrings come to you from...overstock.com? we got our awesome dining chairs from overstock, perhaps their earrings are just as awesome in person, too?
***
pink belt: pink and snakeskin and gold hardware - j. crew does it again. this item is a trifecta of some of my favorite things, and even better - it's on sale.
***
blue shirt: and to follow that up, a perfect blue j. crew shirt for spring, complete with florals. i bought a shirt last season with a huge pink peony on it and have worn it maybe a hundred times. i'm looking forward to wearing it a hundred more.
***
pink clutch: the designer bags are killing it this season with color, and givenchy leads the pack. i can't find one thing wrong with this bag (except for the price).
***
hello shirt: downplaying the pink and the florals in a subtle way. probably something i should focus on.
***
pink lipstick: nars makes my favorite lip products and this light, light pink is a dream - i already own this, i already love it, and i highly recommend it.
***
blue flats: while flats will never replace my love for heels, when i do wear them they better actually provide my feet support (sideye to all the ballet flats in the world) or be totally funky and out there. these are the latter, and i think they're the coolest.

  2. I usually gravitate towards bright colors and loud patterns but there is something really nice and soothing about all these muted colors. Very spring. Makes me want to go out and buy a new Easter dress!
