Pastels are HOT HOT HOT right now and while they are the perfect palette for spring, they can be intimidating to wear. Without the right style or mixing pastels can go VERY “I’m off to go see the Easter bunny”. Which is cute when you are 4, not so much when you’re 40. Darker complexions look radiant in these tones, but paler folks need to make sure they pick the right shades to compliment their coloring and avoid looking washed out.
That said, done right, pastels are uplifting and crisp and a totally beautiful palette to wear.

Groundbreaking.”) Here’s a roundup of some floral items I think are pretty fun and fab. I like my floral prints with a heavy dose of black usually, to keep them from feeling too 80’s Laura Ashley.

Valentines Day snuck up on me this year, and while I never make a big deal about it (much like New Years- #overrated) I do like grabbing some little gifts keeping in the theme my mom used when we were growing up– gifts must be red, pink or heart themed (This does not to apply to jewelry though, because we make the rules) :) I’ve extended this include gifts of booze because that’s romantic right?
