Pastels or Brights?

The weather is officially gorgeous here in Tampa, so warm weather looks are definitely feasible now! Hopefully if you can’t say the same, nice weather is headed to your little corner of the world soon.

I’ve been flip flopping between wanting to wear pastels and uber brights, so I decided to style a look that incorporated both. BaubleBar’s Fulham Pink Roxy Bracelet was a great jumping off point! And I’m majorly crushin’ on Ivanka Trump’s floral pumps. They both add such a fun pop of color to the pastel frock no?

So, are you looking forward to rockin’ pastels or brights for spring lovelies? Or maybe both?

    I’m definitely a brights girl, they go better with my darker skin tone.

    Brights can make us 40+ girls look vibrant while pastels can make us look matronly. I’m definitely going bright! 😉

    So, so adorable and Ivanka’s shoes have been killing it lately. These are amazing, and there was a bow pair at Nordstrom yesterday I might have had a moment over.

    My first instinct is always to say pastels, but those bright shoes are too fun! Would make a great pair!

    I really like the idea of mixing pastels with neon or brights, but I haven’t tried it myself yet. They really do make a great combination!

    I love those shoes! And I normally don’t go for floral shoes. I will be going for brights this Spring for sure. 🙂

    I like that you combined brights & pastels here– something I am going to try!
    Actually, living in Singapore now has absolutely inspired me to invest in more colorful garments— and to actually wear them!!!!
