Spring Trend 2011--Kelly Green, Hot pink, and Violet

05 April 2011
There is so much excitement going on in my world at them moment so I am sorry if this post is coming up a tad be later than usual. I just bought my plane ticket back to Houston yesterday and I am excited to see family and friends. I've been away for 9 months now and they miss me. AND this is a new beginning of a new journey and I have no idea where it will take me.

Me and the wedding planning girls over at Bon Bon Studios--our new initiative for special occasion and destination weddings in Italy--have finally launched our site here. And we have been featured on The Sweetest Occasion Blog here for a contest. I am considered a vendor so when I return to Italy in the future I will be doing weddings here. Here's a preview of our mock wedding. Go over to The Sweetest Occasion to see the rest of the photos.

Besides this good news, I am bringing you another amazing Spring Color Trend 2011, Kelly green, hot pink and violet. I found this cute kelly green dress over at ModCloth.com and it inspired me to put together these trend boards. If you are not careful, doing hot pink and green can come off a bit Barbie-ish, but I do not think Barbie rocked the colors like this.
