Gracey Wears: The First Blush of Spring

I do not wear a lot of pastels.  I don’t particularly like them nor do I think they are particularly flattering on me.  There are a few exceptions; blush, pink, and peach.  I don’t know why, but those are the only pastels I wear with any regularity.  And I generally wear them around this time of year because they’re so perfect for spring.  Today’s outfit features the first blush of spring:

I bought this tunic on deep, deep sale at LOFT, but still hesitated in buying it because although I do like blush I wasn’t sure if I’d actually wear it.  But, I think this top is just lovely, especially paired with the polka dot scarf:

It’s the perfect outfit for early spring:

Still covered up so I don’t freeze to death when I ride in (I clip my pant legs when I ride in flares) but still spring-like.

Likes: Gracey likes to shop, to blog, and to terrify her co-workers with brightly colored outfits.

Dislikes: Robot uprisings, too-short skirts, and leggings as pants.

    Those colors are gorgeous on you! I love the mix of the subtle patterns between the top and scarf too.

    What a beautiful and elegant looking outfit! The pink range-which for me will include a bit of mauve-is all I do in pastels too. I find it difficult to get my favoured jewel tones in summer clothing. They are usually pastels or bright primaries.

    I love pale pink and gray paired together. Your outfit is perfect for spring. And a polka dotted scarf is the perfect added touch. Great job.
