MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH PINK AND AQUA (plus more last minute Mother's Day gift ideas)

Thursday, May 05, 2011

Waking up on a bright, sunny spring day always brings a lightness to my heart and I easily get inspired by the colors around me. There's no greater joy than beholding a newly budding cherry blossom tree  or rose bush against the background of a dreamy azure sky. 
I'm having such a love affair with pink and aqua that I made up a pretty little collage inspired by these colors.  They work in fashion, interior decor, jewelry, home accessories, gifts....anything your heart can dream of! 
Thakoon Open Back Satin Dress (tip: wear shell underneath for more coverage) $355.50 (70% off!), DVF Suede Sandals $280,  Turquoise Pop Art Ring $55,  Blue Topaz Drop Earings $230,  Stone Foldover Clutch $98
Make a room stunning by painting one wall a dreamy aqua blue. Use white trim and furniture and enhance with touches of hot pink.

Classy Craft Idea: Paint an old chandelier a soft aqua blue and drape with inexpensive pink beaded necklaces from a discount or dollar store. No one will believe you didn't pay hundreds of dollars for this delightful fixture!

Lea Michelle looks divine in this aqua blue confection on set while filming Glee
A seemingly unmatched look is fabulous when using these soft pastels together. Try a pink lace dress and bold aqua shoes for a subtle yet haute couture effect.
Here are 5 gorgeous aqua/pink inspired gifts for Mother's Day (all for $100 or less)
Romantic Floral Embellished Bag $88
Wide Rhinestone Bangle $36
Baccarat Butterfly $100

L'Eau D'Issey Summer
Reminiscent of a blue lagoon warmed and illuminated by the sun, l'Eau d'Issey Summer Fragrance is encased in a brilliant blue bottle garnished in coral. This fresh and floral fragrance has the perfect notes to accessorize those warm summer days: pear, rose, peony and precious wood. $64

Anemone Mezzo Vase from Anthropologie $18

Have a gorgeous day and keep believing in the beauty of your dreams.
