Spring Forecast: Sparkly & Scrumptious

A 70-degree day on the 7th of January followed by snow flurries a few days later has left this vitamin-D-lover looking forward to spring! Until then, I’ve found a sparkly silver lining to tide me over and it’s on the pages of my fashion glossies.

After poring over the pretty pages of the latest issues, let me tell you, lovelies ~ you are in for a sweet treat this spring!

The shimmery fashion forecast for Spring 2012 is calling for cotton candy clouds, candy-colored sprinkles and watercolor showers, with plenty of pretty pastels on the horizon ~ parfait pink, lovely lilac, luscious lemon,  icy blue, and minty green…

These refreshing hues are bound to cure your winter blues.

High visibility color is also sparkling on the skyline this spring!

For the official Fashion Color Report, check out Pantone’s pretty picks for Spring 2012  ~ these blooms of color have been popping up all over…



(Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango, is terrific ~ but I prefer shades of its citrus sister, sunshine yellow.)

Forecasts show a high pressure system of navy blue moving in, promising to pack a preppy punch…
