Winter is a sad time for pastels. I have this pair of mint-colored denim that are basically weeping and shivering in the back of my closet.
However, when I went shopping at J.Crew this afternoon, I found myself still drawn to the lighter colors. Mixing it with a "dirtier" pastel (such as rust) can warm it up a little bit! (P.S. How cute would this color scheme for a autumn or winter wedding?)
