Pastels

Happy Monday, hope everyone had a great weekend. Over the weekend I saw the movie, "The Impossible" and it was sooo good. I came out of the movie feeling so blessed for my family. Definitely go see it if you can. Now onto the trend at hand, pastels. Pastels were also a trend last spring, so I am glad to see the trend remain for Spring 2013. I feel it is so feminine.

While I was shopping over the holiday, I came across this pastel tunic by Mossimo. I fell in love with the many pastel colors incorporated into this tunic. Plus, I can wear this tunic all year, it is long enough to wear as a dress and for $24.99, I could buy two!

  2. You found a beauty here, Carrie! Lovely colors and shape. I don't wear much pastel but I will have to look at some soft blue for Spring, I think. Oh, and I thought "Lincoln" was terrific; will add "The Impossible" to my must-see list : >

  3. Ooooh, I love that tunic and have been hoping to see it on someone in blogland. I don't know why I haven't tried it on yet myself - now I will. GREAT dress for spring too.

    And and annnd...the hubby and I almost saw The Impossible yesterday, but at the last minute decided to see Life of Pi instead, which was incredible and amazing and emotional and beautiful. Still, I can't wait to see The Impossible too. I loves me some Ewan McGregor. Glad to hear it was a good one!

    merci,

  5. I love the combination of pastels with the "winter/fall" colors of teal and congac. A fun way to get a bit of spring feeling even when there's snow on the ground.

  7. So refreshing to find pastel in the dead of winter. Love how you winterized it with scarf & boots!
    I can't seem to follow using the google connect? It's saying NOT Found, error 404. Wonder why? I am able to do it on other blogs...

  9. Love that tunic!

    I think my favorite pastel is probably mint. It's so soft and refreshing!

  11. I love pastels! All of them! And I love how you've added the rich teal scarf and boots to such a springy item. It looks great. ;)
    My recent movie faves include The Hobbit which was amazing and Looper which had an incredible surprise ending - (unfortunately it also had a lot of cussing and violence, so if you don't like that sort of thing you won't like it.)

  12. I love your long tunic top over that amazing infinity scarf. I'm not a huge fan of pastels for myself. I prefer neutral colors. Pastels and my olive skin just don't seem to mix.

  15. The pastels really look modern the way you're wearing them. The darker but related solids work to ground your look and keep the pastels away from sweetness. Nice textures, too, and the scarf is genius. You have the best eye, Carrie!
    We're trying to catch as many Academy Award nominees as we can before the Big Day ... want to see Lincoln, Le Mis if we can.
    Just sat through the three hours of The Hobbit ... so happy I enjoyed it!
