Some fun ideas to wear bright flowers is to pin a pastel colored brooch on a simple jacket to dress it up, like the one shown at the Alice + Olivia 2012 S/S.

Pale pinks and peaches are in this spring. A hot item is pink pearl jewelry; try a winding strand of “barely there” pink pearls for a girly touch, or a baroque pearl and gold ring if you’re more daring.Show Jewelry
