monday inspiration: pastel crush


Last night confirmed my latest inspiration is more like a obsession crush.  Lupita Nyong'o killed it last night in her custom Prada pastel blue gown.  The baby blue made her smile sweeter, strut more graceful; she just had a glow about her even before she won an Oscar.  Pastels have a captivating power.   They have this ease about them, a brightness that isn't as harsh as neon, and a subtle sophistication unlike everyday navy, grey and black; they don't have to try too hard and it works.     Clearly all this rambling means I've developed a crush....and am quickly falling in love with the pastels in my life:

 blackberry + coconut milk from the boqeria
 pastel accessories I picked up while in Barcelona (similar: necklace and clutch)
favorite flavor 
looks like Gaudi liked pastels too (column at park guell)
floral arrangement showcased at my friend ninelivesforfashion house
