Peach and mint florals.

Light blue vintage Levis denim vest via Sifted Vintage, Pastel pink/mint Forever 21 floral dress, Ivory vintage Chanel purse, Ivory c/o Beginning Boutique bold ruler ring, Bracelets: F21, Coach, CC Skye, Brown Urban Outfitters wedges.

I am embracing all pastel colors I can get my hands on for this Spring.  Colors I adore are sorbet/cotton candy shades, like mint, peach, lilac, sky blue, and soft yellow.  Anything from Louis Vuitton's S/S '12 collection has me excited for pastels this Spring.  I know cliche to wear pastels for spring season..and even in a floral pattern, but couldn't help myself.  I was so drawn to this dress when I spotted it at Forever 21.
I think something that will always be signature to my style is my love for mixing edgy and sweet pieces together (creating a great irony) -- ie. this floral dress paired with this amazing vintage Levis denim vest from Sifted Vintage (which I scored as well at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire).  
And a sweet Spring outfit wouldn't be complete without a pair of sandals, but better yet for comfort: sandal wedges from UO.  
I know everyone said the groundhog Phil saw his shadow this year, but the sun nonetheless came out this past weekend!  I hope the beautiful sun is here to stay.
Have an amazing week ahead Beautifuls!  Happy Monday!
♥, Kathleen.
