100% Thrifted Pick (6.17.09)

, originally uploaded by eyeliah.
Ah, those colors! Not only are eyeliah’s floral sundress and airy cardigan completely adorable individually, but together they are that perfect combination of soft teal blue and cotton candy pink that for whatever reason I find myself completely drawn to in the springtime. I really love the way she accented with the matching light leather belt and shoes too. Such a pretty look overall.

My gravitation toward soft pinks mixed with anything in the soft blue/teal family happened last Spring as well, and I’ve noticed it popping up quite a bit in my flickr faves. So, without further ado, I’d like to share some inspiring images featuring this color combo:

This pairing of sweet, sugary-treat, spring blossom inspired hues is amongst my favourite, too. Thank you for highlighting such lovely examples of these two colours together, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at them.

Wishing you a fantastic weekend,

A well chosen selection! I really like those soft colours - would be perfect for spring. I've also noticed I often go for themed thrifting as you mention in the linked post.
