Springtime pastels are irresistible – maybe because they mirror the colors of buds pushing through the thawing ground. After a long New England winter, seeing the new year’s growth makes me so happy. The soft hues seem fresh and lively, especially this time of year.

Sometimes saturated colors are hard to pair without them fighting against each other, but pastels mix easily. Blush pink, lilac purple, sky blue, and icy green are simultaneously bold and harmonious, whereas bright pink, rich purple, royal blue, and kelly green mixed together could be garish. For today’s look I started with a lavender Pendleton blazer and Banana Republic floral print top layered over a men’s Tommy Hilfiger button down (side note: I love borrowing menswear pieces and playing with proportion, as I did here). Metallics also complement pastels. This  J. Crew mini is from a few seasons back, and, with textured gold heels, adds a bit of edge.
