Peach + Aqua :: Spring Pastels

I love pastels. Especially these two hues. Tiffany blue & Peach/Coral. Layering pastels makes me feel a bit like an easter egg in heels. Yea? It's cool. I can rock it. They also have such a light, romantic, whimsical ambience. The faded lighting & blurred edges might contribute a bit as well (thank you iPhoto!). Not to mention tulle and sequins. I'm finding myself a minimalist lately, and this outfit is no exception. Just 4 pieces. We're keeping things simple around here today.

Hype. 
Tim Tebow. Stop Kony. The Hunger Games.
Ever heard of any of ^these^?
Ha.

Just a few examples of how people's attention & energy can be shockingly contagious and permeating on all levels. I mean, when you stop and think about it, is it not fascinating? There is incredible power in numbers, and people united & mobilized under a common cause. Grassroots movements. 

The world is full of beauty right now. Of creativity and talent. Of kindness. But it's also full of pain and just plain crappy crap. Understatement of the century. Human Trafficking, child neglect, and all sorts of other offenses, deep and shallow. I'm encouraged by the verse (2 Chronicles 7:14) in which God promises to heal our land if we can posture ourselves with humility and straight up seek His face with all we've got. If this promise was disseminated like mad, and we really held onto it and applied it in our lives, He would boom, fix up the junk in our world. Now that would be cool to see.

Have a beautiful weekend! The hubby and I will be venturing to downtown Minneapolis for our 5th Vision Plan weekend! (What the heck's a vision plan? Check out my last post on them right here. Be warned, if you head to that post, you will find me quite brunette.) Lots of restaurant-hopping & downtown carousing & dreaming big together. Love love it.

With the simple makeup, two toned outfit and that radiant smile of yours, you've pulled off "ethereal fairy" very well, with the help of iPhoto :) Great post. There's a new post up on my blog and I'd love to hear what you think of it, so feel free to stop by!
