Now that it’s March, I’m pronouncing it officially time to start obsessing over spring fashion! I (Kelly) swear I can almost taste the warm temps just within our reach. Leave it to a stunning photo of the city of Positano, perched just atop the Amalfi Coast, to launch me into a pastel frenzy… have you ever seen a shade more stunning than the soft mint color cast as the fog strikes the seaboard? It immediately carried my mind to the awe-inspiring Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring Collection, overflowing with textured lace in pale sorbet-like shades. Though I may not get my hands on one of these gowns this season, I’m certainly on board with these refreshing colors… how about you?

    I love the new Elie Saab collection. A break from traditional white all the time.

    I used to live about an hour north of Positano and used to visit quite often. Nothing better than a warm afternoon and an icy limoncello.

    My husband lived in Naples and had his suits made by a tailor in Positano. Connections, connections… The colors are wonderful!

    I’m not usually a green person, but I may be obsessed with mint. I can’t wait for that pretty color or Spring!

    Oh how stunning! That soft mint color is wonderful, and definitely brings to mind a misty sea. Those gowns are SO gorgeous. If only I had an occasion to wear one!

    I find that pretty pastels work best if I have a bit of a tan. Oh Mr. Sunshine, how I need you so.

      Agreed. My complexion is in dire need of a sunny day (or 10).
