Pastel Accessory Inspiration

Pretty pastels are usually a hallmark style of the season. The soft shades mimic the beautiful colors of spring, and from mint to peach there’s almost always a pastel that can make its way into your closet. If these hues just aren’t your thing for an all-over outfit, add a pop of pastels by way of accessories. Whether with a pair of baby blue shoes or a lavender clutch, you can channel spring in your style!

Trend Alert: Culottes

5

Skinny jeans have been the stand-by pant silhouette for years now, and while they are a staple in our closet, sometimes we need a pant that’s a little more roomy. Enter culottes. These wide-legged cropped pants are making a comeback baby! Not only are they chic, they’re also one of the first types of pants to be acceptably worn by women because they were shaped like a skirt, while giving women the freedom to ride horseback astride a saddle. We love this style because it’s versatile, unique and modern; and we know you’ll be seeing it everywhere this spring!   PFW-Street-Style-Day-7

Ceramics as Centerpieces

We’re looking at the inspiring vessels for flowers, foods and drink that are making a comeback in homes all around the world: ceramics. Unique ceramics are becoming statement and conversation pieces that can make their way into any room of the home. They’re also readily available for purchase from artists all corners of the earth and hit all price points, making this truly accessible art. The best part? There are so many styles from modern to rustic, that you’re sure to find the piece for you!

Color Story: Scuba Blue

diving-lady-elliot-islandWe can’t be sure where the name “scuba blue” came from, but we imagine it was inspired by the intense greenish-blue of the ocean that only lucky divers get to see in person.
