I am not one to wantonly adopt trends. Harem pants and I didn't mix, fur vests were just not my thing and glitter shoes left me feeling... meh. While there was nothing really wrong with these trends (except harem pants, they are a whole lotta wrong) they just didn't appeal to me. This season pastels have been touted as "the" look for spring. When I initially saw the cotton candy colored clothing confections (crazy alliteration I'm sorry) in the magazines I recoiled in horror. The head to toe soft color sweetness was enough to make my teeth hurt, but slowly ,as I began to see pastel pieces appearing in the stores, I have slowly started to warm up to the look. I wouldn't dare wear an entire outfit of pastels, but a sprinkling of the soft colors mixed with grey or black (of course) would be a great way to transition my winter weary wardrobe (what is with me) to spring. Here are my picks.
