I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. Pastel colors are a huge trend this spring. Pastels are sparse in my wardrobe, so when I came across these pants at Barefoot and Vintage, an Etsy shop, I was excited.  When I looked at them online, I wasn't sure if these pants would fit me, but I fell in love with the bow belt and the wide leg bottom. So, I ordered them and when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find that they fit me perfectly! To give these pants a modern spin, I added some Steve Madden nude pumps (a necessity), silk blouse, and vintage clutch.

There many great pastels items available for the spring. These are a few of my favorites I found.
