Spring shades

The lavender sweater has been long overdue to make an appearance. I decided to embrace a lighter color pallet with the jeans and mint tote as well.

Kind of funny: If you look closely at my bracelet in the first photo you will see it is completely intact, however, if you look at it in the detail shot, you can see one of the large rhinestones is missing.

I did not notice the missing rhinestone until I arrived home. I assumed it was gone for good, but when I started editing these photos I noticed its presence in some of the frames.

I didn't recall hearing anything fall to the ground while I was taking my photos, so I dumped out my tote and sure enough, there was the missing stone. I glued it back on; we shall see how long it holds.

  2. You have convinced me I need that exact sweater. I have been looking for a lilac colored sweater for a while but something about the texture is off. Love this!

  3. Love these pastel colors. That sweater is perfect!

  4. Such a pretty color on you! I love your bracelet here too :)

  5. Thank goodness you found it! I lost a stone in one of my most precious rings one time, found it and didn't realize it (kinda weird story) and realized I had found it years later. It was such a relief!

    I love this purple on you!

  6. Love the lavender and mint together!
    Tisk tisk OASAP for the bracelet issue, but good thing you still had the reinstone!! Haha.
    Gorgeous shots. c:


  7. At least you found the photos! There are too many times where I lose an embellishment to never never land!

  13. Love this! Bring on Spring! Woohoo! :D
    And how lucky that you still had the rhinestone, let's hope it stays forever ;)

  14. This is so pretty! I have a similar color top that I will have to pair with mint now. Glad you were able to rescue your bracelet. It's lovely and would be a shame if the rhinestone was lost!

  15. That lavender sweater looks so good on you Lydia! I'm so glad you found that stone. That's a gorgeous bracelet. They don't make things worth a damn nowadays. HaHaHa

  16. I am not usually a huge pastels fan but you look drop dead gorgeous!

  18. that's wonderful that you found a little crystal and glued it back. I love how by adding few colours in simple outfit it transforms in completely different look with different mood. Love these colors and especially lilac. It's so spring.

  19. Pretty sweater! Glad you found the missing rhinestone :)

  20. I actually really love pastels, since I was a little girl. That gorgeous lavender jumper is so nice, as well as the sparkled jewellery. :)

  21. The sweater is beautiful - i don't like it when items have too much stones because i alway fear that i will bump into something and they will fall… glad you found it.

  22. I have exactly the same sweater from old navy :) I also love it and wear it so often!
    My firmoo giveaway is still on until tomorrow. Do you want a $30 gift card :)?
    Lots of love and ENJOY your weekend!

  23. Love this lavender sweater! Such a pretty spring color!

  24. Oooo I love these two shades together. Makes me think of spring for sure. Love it!

  25. I love that lavender sweater! :) Glad that you´ve found the missing rhinestone, that´s why it´s really hard for me to buy a bracelet/cuff with stones because I tend to be careless with them. ;)


  26. The mint and lilac are so nice together, what a lovely pairing! :)

    Glad you found the stone for your bracelet too - hope it says on now you've glued it in! :)

  27. A lavender sweater could never look good on me as it does on you. What a lovely shade to welcome the beauty of spring.

    I hadn't noticed the missing gem even in the detail shot until you pointed it out. I guess it is the part with 2 dots? It is really fortunate that it dropped into your bag and that you managed to glue them back on. I hope thay stay put!

    BTW, I'm holding my 2nd blog giveaway. There are Kimmidoll, L'Occitane, Crabtree n Evelyn and Fleurfaerie stuff to be won. Feel free to check it out and participate if keen. Have a lovely Sunday!

  28. Love your pastels and boyfriend jeans. Yay for spring!

  29. Such a pretty top!


  30. Great outfit!Mint and lilac are meant to be together! Great work on finding the missing stones.

  31. Beautiful outfit!! that sweater is gorgeous!!!!


  32. ahaha, that's kind of perfect that you were able to solve your way to finding the stone through use of your outfit pictures--good thing, right? I left my lens cap at a location once and figured out the same thing by seeing it in an image I took. Ah, the wonder of photos!

    I adore that lilac sweater of yours. And that bracelet is so sparkly and fantastic!

  33. Hey, that's awesome you found the missing rhinestone. Good detective work through blog photos! The color of that sweater is gorgeous...it is such a good color for you!!

  34. The pastel look is absolutely gorgeous! Your sweater is stunning – I love that shade.

  35. Awful but completely practical and useful tip of sticking rhinestones back onto jewelry - chewing gum. It's disgusting, but it completely works. If the glue doesn't hold, give it a try :)

    On a style-related note, I couldn't help but smile at this post - not only do I have this sweater in cream, but I also have that LC for Kohls necklace. Great minds!

  36. these spring colors really suit you! the lavender pullover looks great!!
