Think Spring, Think Pretty Pastels

After a long walk on a day that felt like spring, I am definitely feeling like putting the coats and boots away and wearing a flowy skirt and sandals! I know, I's only mid January! We have a ways to go, but before you know it, the stores will be filled with warmer weather clothes and you're going to start craving longer and sunnier days!

If you are like me, you're just dying to know what's going to be hot for the upcoming spring and summer season. I did some digging on the internet and here is what I found out!

If you have always been a fan of pink, this is your year! Lots of pink and pastels are predicted to be the rage. I call these "pop" colors. Most of these colors can add instant punch to your outfit. I love that you can find all of these colors in nature: ocean blue or Caribbean turquoise, sunset hues in lavender and pinks, and colors straight from your garden: pale green herbs, a vibrant hibiscus or an antique yellow rose!

Check out Pantone's Fashion Color Guide to Spring:

White is also supposed to be making a big move this season with it statement of minimalism. I have always loved white for its crisp, clean and classic personality. You can never go wrong with an all white outfit!

These runway designs are stunning, but how do they translate over to regular life? Here are some affordable pieces you can get for your wardrobe in the yummy 2010 color pallette!
