Today is the day that I’m collaborating with this fabulous group of fashion bloggers to bring you our favorite spring trends.  Be sure to pop over to check out spring looks from Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife, Kilee from One Little Momma, Cyndi from Walking in Grace and Beauty and Allison from Two Thirty-Five Designs.

But before that, let’s talk about spring trends for a minute.   There are SO many trends that I’m loving this spring, it was really hard to choose just one to style.  Some of my favorites that were around last year, like graphic patterns and floral prints, are back again.  A few new ones have made the list too, like crop tops and sheer fabrics.  I’ll leave the styling of those to someone else who hasn’t had three kids.  You’re welcome.  🙂

I chose pastels for two reasons.  1.  They were something I wasn’t too keen to warm up to initially last year, but ended up falling head over heels for.  2.  Pastels are a trend that anyone can pull off.

Why the hesitation with pastels?  Well, I’m more of a bold, saturated color type of person.  It’s obvious in both my decorating and my closet.  The subtlety of pastels had never appealed much to me.

Then I bought my first pair of pink jeans and realized that pastels are really just a more fun version of neutrals.  They’re so versatile!  You can ground them with darker colors or pair them up with neutrals for a fresh look.  And so my love affair with pastels began…

Today I’m styling two different pairs of pastel colored jeans that I bought last year –  a minty pair and a peachy pair.  This first mint outfit is a throwback from last spring.  It was one of my favorite outfits then and will be again this season.
