On Paris, Pastels and Pups
This weekend I left the pup at home with his dad and hopped a train to Paris to meet up with some friends I’ve known almost as long as I’ve been alive. He lives in Boston, she lives in NYC, but somehow, the stars aligned and our paths just happened to cross in the City of Lights. While we were window shopping in the Marais, I caught sight of someone that literally stopped me in my tracks - a chic-to-death, bright young thing wearing a double-breasted sherbet pink suit with cropped, tapered pants, topped off with the perfect shade of red lipstick. It was ridiculously eye-catching while being completely pulled together at the same time.
That instance of head-to-toe pink perfection along with more window shopping than I care to admit made me come to the realization that although Florals have been everywhere for months on end but it finally looks like they’re slowly being surpassed by another personal favorite of mine: dreamy, creamy, pastels. For someone like me who leans toward dressing in head to toe neutrals, there’s something much more palatable about the idea of pivoting to a soft shade of pink versus a bold in your face bright red or a frothy peach instead of a bold-as-brass orange.
This summer I’m seeing this trend translate to dog wear and accessories. One of my faves is the Collar Knit from Huts and Bay. I’m loving that these sherbet-colored tops are playful yet chic at the same time.
