Spring 2012 Color Trends • Sweet Lilac

Pantone — the authority when it comes to color — has released the color trends for this spring.  Here is another post in the series highlighting each of these new spring colors.



To be honest...I probably will not buy anything is this color.  It is a little too pale toned for my liking.  I tend to gravitate towards the bolder, more saturated colors.  However, it is in the spring color lineup so I am including it for all y'all who aren't afraid of a little soft pink/purple in their wardrobe.

Here are a few Sweet Lilac picks...all less than $100.  Click on any of the items to purchase.

Spring 2012 Color Trends • Sodalite Blue

Pantone — the authority when it comes to color — has released the color trends for this spring.  Here is another post in the series highlighting each of these new spring colors.



Sodalite Blue is basically a dark cobalt or bright navy.  It can be used as a neutral tone with the season's bright colors or used with neutrals as the pop of color.  Try it as an alternative to basic black to help get out of the winter style rut.

Here is another bathroom shot for the book.  I am not a fan of the lighting in the bathroom, but I did want to shoot this outfit (since it DID NOT include jeans).

I always get excited when I don't wear jeans because it means I can wear my denim jacket, which I love.  Why do get to wear my jacket when I don't wear jeans, you ask?  Well, see, I don't do the "cowboy tuxedo" thing...

Jean Jacket + Jeans = Cowboy Tuxedo

There is such a thing as too much denim, trust me...I've checked.  I'm not saying that it can be done, but it's not for the faint of heart.  There is a fine line between being a fashion "do" and a fashion "don't" and I am sure that I would fall in the latter category every time.  So I will continue to browse the JCrew catalog and pin those clever denim outfits, complete with sequins tops and flirty hair, but will stay away from recreating...well, at least until I am 6 feet tall, 100 pounds and styled by JCrew.
