Hey pretty girls!! How are you doing?
Well, spring is finally here and this time there is a move towards the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. So, today I've experimented with this theme of cool colors and created a style for you using the Aquamarine, Classic Blue, Royal Purple and Ghost White colors. I've been studying the Pantone palette for quite some time now, so thought of taking help from it for this entire look. An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes restore a sense of well-being as we head into warmer months.

I was at the pantaloons store the other day and saw this amazing abstract-floral printed dress on the mannequin. Since I love purple a lot, I am attracted to each and every thing that contains the color. This dress did the same, and I felt the shape was fun so I bought it. Plus, it has a mix of all the colors I wanted for the season :
Aquamarine : The lead color for women for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. It is an airy blue with a dreamy feel, delivers a sense of carefree playfulness. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer.
Classic Blue : Reliable and thoughtful, it inspires calm, confidence and harmony. Serving as an anchor to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette, It is a shade that is strong and reliable. Just as with the sea, because of its waterborne qualities, this shade is perceived as thoughtful and introspective.
Royal Purple : Rich in nostalgia. It is a unique shade that adds a surprise to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette. It is a shade that intrigues the eye and is very creative; one that will add a distinctive color pop whether worn on its own or combined with the other top spring colors.
Ghost White : It is an unobtrusive shade that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage. Nature’s most perfect neutral, it is a shade that is timeless. Quietly assuring and peacefully relaxing. It is above all, constant.
When it comes to accessorizing, I feel its a boring process which gives me a headache, basically because I have to choose from SO MUCH OF STUFF, ah! Trust me girls, buying jewelry is easier than picking what to actually wear. Well, I did pull out some pieces out of my drawer to complete my look. I wore a hand-anklet in one hand which I really love, a white wrist watch which complimented the other white bracelets I had layered all together in the other hand. For my feet, I opted for these purple wedges which exactly matched the royal purple color in the dress. They were not as comfortable to wear because they are strapless & my feet slipped out while walking but I love the design (the way the velvet is twisted to form a bow kinda thing) I just love it, so wore that. As we all know, a bag/clutch is very important to carry to keep money and phone and lipgloss ofcourse, so I chose this white with silver lining clutch which went with my silver AD jewelry set I got from craftsvilla on sale last summer and I just love it (emphasizing on the designer pendent).
Many feel compelled to be connected around the clock because we are afraid we'll miss something important. There is a growing movement to step out and create 'quiet zones' to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, 'en plein air' theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. One should never fear trying out something different every time. If you ask me, red, pink and orange have been all over the place for past few years for spring season and I believe fashion is not that stays the same. It is all about the way we live, to bring a change and to have fun. So go out this spring, play with some cool colors, style yourself and paint the town blue!
