Spring Pastels

cherry blossom pastel pink

What was the matter with the ‘S word’ on social media yesterday? We are talking about that other ‘S word’ — related to the weather we experienced in the UK yesterday when winter was performing its last hurrah before going to sleep and making way for spring.

Have the seasons shifted? Could April be the new March? In the past years it’s seemed as if September were the new August, with Indian summers treating our bodies and souls to lovingly warming sun rays.

Either way, the warm weather we’re all desperately longing for is on its way. Promise, promise! If you’re looking to stock up your wardrobe for the warmer season, keep the colours of spring flowers in mind.

The soft pastel petals on apple and cherry trees that have begun to blossom despite the shots of snow (gasp — there, we’ve said it!) inspire the hues for spring. These mere puffs of colours are easy on the eye. Mix shades of pastel with summer’s favourite whiter-than-white, or create a prominent contrast with shades of black and grey.
