Your Love is Better Than Ice Cream

As I got dressed today I realized that I have pastel accessories and a top or two but zero pants or jackets in pastel colors. I have one pastel blue sweater but it's a cashmere pullover that was too hot for today's weather. The Everybody Everwear challenge this month was pastels. Because of my lack of major apparel that met this criteria, I was forced to start with a basic pallet of black. I thought the all black backdrop would show off my pastels nicely. In this first photo, I was caught in the act of laughing. My Honey thinks it's funny to get me to crack up during picture taking.

Cardigan - Macy's (no longer available), Shirt - Target, Skirt - Talbots Outlet, Shoes - Target (no longer available online), Scarf - The Shoppe on Main, Earrings - Karin Jacobson Design c/o Already Pretty, Shades - Goodwill and DIY (details here), Watch - Timex gift, Bracelets - gifts, Ring - gift

It's hard to tell in these pictures but my skirt is polka dot eyelet.  It's a fun design and not the typical eyelet pattern.  I loved playing with the dot pattern and wearing it with my bubble earrings and my circle laser cut scarf.

Pastels always remind me of ice cream and sherbet.  Sarah McLachlan contributed the title of today's post.  Her song, Ice Cream is one I love and has special meaning for me.  Wearing the pastels trend my way for this month's EBEW challenge was fun. I've discovered that I definitely need a tan skirt in my wardrobe, along with a pastel jacket or sweater. Will you be wearing pastels this spring?
