Inspiration: Spring 2012 Pastels {Delicate soft shades}


Welcome to a new week, here’s hoping it’s a fab one.

Today I wanted to share a much softer and delicate bridal inspiration palette than those I’ve been featuring so far this year. As Spring 2012 marks the return of a fashion favourite, chalky pastels.

These saccharine shades have become the new sophisticate color palette, thanks to top designers such as Louis VuittonMarc Jacobs and Jil Sander. The runways were a feast for the eyes with gowns in pale pinks, yellows, greens and blues wafting down the runway, all in delicate and floaty chiffon layers, with floral applique detailing, lace collare and even a few feathers thrown into the mix to add the the soft and pretty vibe.

I do hope you like the pretty pastel-ness that’s gracing the pages of Pocketful of Dreams today as I am going to be bringing you a whole host of features this week where pretty delicate tones are used. With a LookBook coming right up this afternoon as well as a gorgeous wedding tomorrow, you won’t want to miss it.

Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
