lighten up


Harper's Bazaar August 08

In junior high and high school I went through a pastel phase. First, it was baby blue walls and comforters. Then I grew out of light blue and graduated to lavender. Curtains, comforters and candles...my room was perfectly coordinated. And my favorite shirts were a light pink one and a light purple one.
THEN, I grew out of that and developed a sort of aversion to pastels, not allowing them into my closet or any of my decor. It was all about the earth tones at that point.

I guess I have come full circle, because my current relationship with pastel is very healthy...I can't help but love the soft cheery innocence they evoke. Pastels are ultra feminine, refreshing and perfect for spring. And I think it's about time we embrace our 'girly' roots and brighten up our wardrobes a little.
