With Spring finally upon us, even though the good weather isn't quite, it means the shops are stocking up on more and more pastel pieces which I luuuuurve. Great for those that don't like colours that are too intense - instead, you can opt for a dusty pink rather than a fuschia, a powder blue rather than cobalt, a minty green rather than emerald green, a pale violet rather than dark purple or a vanilla yellow rather than a banana in-your-face yellow etc., you get the jist. I love the idea of pairing a pastel top with a crisp blue jean, or mixing and matching a dusty pale grey duster coat with a mint green cardi and a powder blue beanie. With pastels, clashing colours works because they're subtle so they all compliment each other but if you just want a small accent of pastel, you can wear a bag or a trainer like the New Balances above. Hurrah for pastels.
