The first day of spring is less than a week away and I couldn't be more excited! I know it's cliché, but the transition from winter to spring really does make a difference in my life. Maybe it's because I was born in the summer, but the presence of warmer temperatures, budding greenery, and fragrant blossoms ensure that I always wake up on the right side of the bed. In anticipation of transitioning my wardrobe to mirror my brighter mood, I looked to Pantone's spring color report for inspiration. Pantone's executive director elaborated on the palette, explaining that "designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad, and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom."
Um, hold up a second, Pantone. Did you say blooming flowers and strong, confident women? Get out of our heads you crazy mind readers! Unknowingly, it seems that the development of our Rosebud collection has paralleled that of spring's joie de vivre (affirming in my mind that designers are all tapped into a some special section of the collective unconscious).
So here we are, a mere 6 days until the start of a season that heralds spiritual rebirth, a renewed enthusiasm for shaving our legs, and the promise of longer days wonderfully awash with color. So let's celebrate the best way we know how, with jewelry! Cheers to that, friends!
