Spring Fashion Dreaming Pink Saturday

I realize with only three actual days of winter, it's somewhat premature to start dreaming of the spring. But New York City had its first snow today -- maybe an inch -- and the thought of spring that was at the edge of my mind moved center forward. I'm not a winter fan, and snow and sleet are two of my least favorite things. I dread slipping and falling, especially after an unfortunate slip on a sleety sidewalk exactly twenty years ago. I broke my elbow and the memory still lingers.

I stopped in Bloomingdale's on Thursday and while walking through the store discovered that fashion is already thinking spring and thinking pink (and blue) spring.

This is the first rack of clothes that caught my eye, especially the shirt on the right. I'm in too many layers right now to wear it.
Then a few more pretty in pink outfits drew my attention. 
I realized almost every rack had pink items.
My favorite were these pink and blue jeans. I can imagine wearing them when the weather gets nicer.
I like the pale blue ones, but I'd choose pink.
Once I noticed the spring clothes I saw them everywhere, including this chic children's store I walked by yesterday.
 The pink signage first attracted my attention and then the cute clothes.
It's fun to window shop, but I'm a long way from picking out spring clothes. Some time in April, when the first breezes of spring begin, I'll be thinking of lighter clothes. But for now, it's time for a coat, scarf, hat and gloves...until the spring.
I'm once again happy to join the Pink Saturday fun. Please stop by and visit some of the nicest bloggers in Blogland.
I'm enjoying this quiet wintry weekend. I've decluttered my computer -- lots of email deleted -- walked a few miles and done my grocery shopping for the week. I'm preparing a post to celebrate the seventh anniversary of Buttercupland and getting ready to launch the new blog. Now I'm going to enjoy one of my winter treats, Downton Abbey. I've got my tea steeping now.
As ever thanks for visiting and take good care.

That sounds like a nasty fall you had, to break your elbow, those many years ago. I can see why you are not a fan of slush and ice. Take care.

I treat myself to Sunday evenings with Downton too. I can't believe this will be the last season.

I do believe Pink is the color for the season...lots of snow here in western NY, Carol (and more coming!)

Have a beautiful day, friend.

I went shopping on Saturday and saw some pretty spring things on the rack also. With the weather turning cold and the layers of clothing getting bigger, it was nice to think of the time when we will be wearing light, colorful outfits. I am ready.

Yes, I have seen Spring showing itself on the racks here too! I will welcome a little Springtime when it comes! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Pam said...

Great post for now. It's bitter cold here and I have been thinking about spring---warmer weather really. I love pink so I will be checking it out here in the stores soon.

All that pink and blue - echoing the Pantone colors of the year for 2016. Careful with that snow!

Stacey said...

I'm with you Carol...I'd love to move on to spring about now and it hasn't even been too bad here in Texas. I love pink!

We're nearing spring. It's always at around this time that the days are getting longer. I know we have a few months 'til spring, but once I notice it's getting darker later each day, I know we're moving toward spring.

It makes me happy.

Pink and blue are the colors of the year, at least in home decor, I saw recently. Doesn't surprise me to see the spring clothes in those colors too! I like pink - though I don't wear a lot of light pink. I'm with you on the pink jeans though! How cute are those with some white Keds, and a white shirt?
