Spring Trends I Can’t Live Without Part 2

If you have been following along, hopefully you are excited to see part 2 of my ‘Spring Trends I Can’t Live Without’ series (check out Part 1 here). If not, I hope you are excited about this post anyway. There are so many amazing trends that it has been hard to narrow down only a few to highlight. I am sticking with my original list though and dedicating this post to pastels! Pastels are definitely one of the spring trends I can’t live without. The pastel color palette isn’t really anything new for spring, but I don’t think I have seen them in such abundance before! I also have never seen pastels mixed together as much as this year. Think about the colors of an Easter egg and copy that. I am only half joking, but you get the picture.

The one color that hasn’t been as popular in the past, but is huge right now, is lavender. I have been in love with anything purple/lavender since I was a little girl. Seeing lavender everywhere is like a dream come true for me. The only struggle I have had is 80% of the lavender pieces are too dressy for a stay at home mom. I would love to own multiple lavender dresses (examples shown below), but where would I wear them?

Realistically I am in athleisure clothes 90% of my week so much to my delight, I found this amazing lavender sweater that works great with both leggings and jeans! I could even dress this up with some cute sandals for a happy hour look. I paired this sweater with my Old Navy workout leggings which are so comfortable!

Another pastel color that I had to have for spring is yellow. Yellow is one of those colors that people seem to have a love/hate relationship with. My mom has told me for years she hates the color yellow and I don’t think I have ever seen her own an article of clothing with even a stripe of yellow in it. I am the opposite. I always found yellow to be such a cheery color and really enjoy wearing it. There are so many options for yellow right now. I found this striped off the shoulder top from Anthropologie that I am in love with. The bell sleeves are so fun and this is one of those shirts that can be casual during the day, but would also work for a night out.

Of course pastels also include pink, mint green and light blue, so I included some items in these colors in the links below (click the right arrow for more). I could only buy so many pastel tops to model for you.

      Aww thank you so much!! I really appreciate it! I want all the lavender dresses! I rarely am able to get that dressed up though. I can’t wait to see pictures of you in your lavender dress! xo

    The pastels are really everything. I love light fabrics, like nylon that stretches and colorful blouses with plunging v-necklines. Something kind of 70’s-esque, imo.
