Friday's Fancies: Pretty in Pastels

Happy Friday! This week {av} wanted us to showcase one of Spring's most popular trends: pastels. If you're unsure of the trend I'd go with a cheap fashion piece like a pastel belt or that cute watch. But, if you're feeling daring, I'd pair a pastel blouse/dress with something edgier like a black leather jacket. I think the contrast instantly looks chic. What do you think of the trend? Any styling tricks you prefer?

This weekend I have zero plans. The boyfriend has been gone all week and I cannot wait to pick him up from airport at 3 this afternoon (counting the minutes). And then my mom's having a little happy hour tonight & that's it. It's nice not to have any set plans and I will most likely finish organizing my closet (I started 2 days ago). It's still in shambles which is typical of my messy self. What are your plans this weekend?
