colour combo love - lilac and sky blue

lilac and sky blue is such a lovely and fresh colour combination, isn't it? great if you're a fan of pastels.

to me it's really evocative of the 50's where you'll see a lot of pastels. the 50's is my favourite era for fashion (as well as the 40's) so i couldn't help but include some vintage items here.

unfortunately lilac doesnt suit me because of my skin tone, but that dress is absolutely dreamy, right? i love it. i'd totally wear something less overwhelming like the shoes or the floral headband though.
