Lighter shades and pretty pastels with petite pops of color were the mainstays for today’s Color Crush…
Growing up I used to HATE pastels because I thought they were WAY too girly, and I was a bit of a tomboy to say the least. (Remind me to show you photo-proof soon!)
Now, the softer colors just scream spring to me, and that’s a welcome change after the white winter we’ve had!
Ps. – Not enough sprinkles for you? This little topper had me giggling (AND glad that I’ve never really loved donuts that much). ;)

Be-bopping around the country to some of my favorite cities means lots of time spent in planes, trains & automobiles, and it can also tend to present situations that make looking and feeling my best seem a little tricky. (Because we KNOW the two go hand in hand, right?)
In today’s feature on S&P TV, I’m sharing 5 of my top travel beauty tips for the girl on the go, and it has GOT to be one of my favorite episodes that we’ve done so far. ;)
Take a peek to see what I keep inside my “World’s Tiniest Styling Kit” and how everyday things like peppermint candies & hand-sanitizer can become your best friends the next time you find yourself in a beauty-related pinch!
If you enjoyed this video, be sure to subscribe to S&P TV for more great style and advice for a flavorful life!
Ps. – If you can relate to that always-on-the-move mentality… I’d love to have you read about why I believe that embracing your free spirit can be one of the best ways to honor where you originally began.
P.Ps. – My obsession with bronze-y metallic eyeshadow continues (especially with that photo above!)… I’ve been using this little pot of gold almost everyday since we’ve been in California, and for some reason I just rarely feel like reaching for anything else!
I’d like you to meet my new little baby blue bicicleta… I found her at a super-cool little bike shop up the hill, and you might say it was love at first cycle. ;) She’s been my partner in crime every day for the past two weeks!
(Except for Saturday when it rained a bunch… Bici watched movies with us in our living room that day.)
One of my favorite things about Long Beach is how bike friendly the community is! We don’t have our car here, so an alternative set of wheels has been crucial to getting around town. Particularly perfect for a day of hitting up some of the best vintage shopping spots, which all happen to be just a few miles away.
Keep reading to see more fun pics of my new friend, and for all the handy shopping info that goes along with the look… Spoiler alert: That camo cutie is yet another sweater from the men’s section!
Ps. – I TOLD you this color would likely be cropping up a bunch over the next several weeks, and I wasn’t kidding.
PPs. – We didn’t really get a shot of the label in any of these photos, but the model of this vintage bike is called a “Free Spirit”, and if you happened to see this week’s Pepper Letter, you’ll know that this is crazy-perfect for me on so many levels!

I know some parts of the country are still staring out the window at snowflakes today, but can we all just agree that the official arrival of Spring will be a welcome sight this year?
Pale blue skies, perfectly faded denim & the first signs of bare skin were the inspirations for today’s Color Crush, and I hope you’ll find that the lovelies here today will let your imagination transport you to someplace warm.
Speaking of beautiful pastel blues: How about Lupita winning an Oscar in Prada last night?! My favorite head-to-toe looks were Anna Kendrick & Jennifer Garner… Did you see any stand-out style surprises that you weren’t expecting?
Ps. – Apparently, this baby blue hue really speaks to me around this time every year.
P.Ps. – I can’t stop obsessing over bicycle style… Tomorrow’s outfit post will show you what I mean, but this collection of fashion on wheels will have to do until then.
Swirl together a mix of geometric patterns, bright colors and intricately woven textures, and you’ve got a good selection of global gorgeousness on your hands.
