    I am really liking the sorbet pastels this spring. Need some bright pick me ups after this winter!

  3. March 5, 2013 / 6:27 pm

    I am obsessed with hot pink & black/white combos for spring! For me, this is the ideal way to look fresh without doing too many pastels.

    I love the black and white combination and the variety of lime green colours for this spring! Lime green looks to be a hit for this spring and I’m excited to try it out myself!

    Hi Marta,
    I have been reading your blog for a while and I think it is so beautifully designed and well written. Thank you for bringing style news to our homes 🙂
    This spring I am really into peach: I think it is so soft and feminine. It has that let it be attitude, which I find I need often when I’m stressed.

    I’m loving pastels for this spring. There’s something so youthful and delicate about pastels.

    green … my favorite color .. not just fashion .. makeup and nail color for this Spring …

  8. March 5, 2013 / 8:11 pm

    I’m loving pastels for spring but don’t think that I could pick a single colour! Aqua blue, baby yellow and peach are among my favourites. There’s something about soft colours that can transform any look into an ultra feminine one.
    Great giveaway and great post… as always, Marta!
    P.S. Congratulations on the awesome blog you started for Garage! That’s such a wonderful accomplishment. Best of luck, darling.

      Thanks! It’s on maintenance mode currently but coming back shortly.

      Will you be in Toronto for fashion week?

      • March 5, 2013 / 10:50 pm

        I’ll be in Toronto that week but still haven’t booked any shows! Not sure what my schedule will look like yet.

    This is the year for GREEN! Spring means green is on the way! Green is versatile. Green can be fresh, elegant or fun. Colour me green 🙂

  10. Nina
    March 5, 2013 / 9:20 pm

    My color choice will be white, its a blank canvas that I can paint over with any sort of accessory, or keep it minimal in head to toe white…amazing giveaway, thank you!!!


  11. March 5, 2013 / 9:38 pm

    I can’t get enough of chartreuse, both in fashion and interiors. On the hunt for the perfect pieces in that colour!

  12. Sara
    March 5, 2013 / 10:16 pm

    Soft neon trends of yellows, greens, and oranges. They are fun and uplifting colors that will inspire us this Spring.

  13. Jessica
    March 5, 2013 / 10:32 pm

    I’ve seen a lot of emerald, which I’m loving!

  14. March 5, 2013 / 11:30 pm

    For this Spring, my go-to favourite colours would be soft, sheer peaches and greys. These colours go well with the blooms and blossoms and the fabrics are light to flow softly with the breeze.

  15. Joyce Kwong
    March 5, 2013 / 11:44 pm

    My favorite spring color is white because it goes well with any things =]

  16. Sonia

    This spring I’m looking forward to bringing some cream-coloured clothing into my wardrobe. I’m also excited about emerald green being the colour of the year because I’m a red-head.
    Btw, great contest! It’s on my bucket list to get to see a show in fashion week.

  17. Annette
    March 6, 2013 / 1:16 am

    My favourite colour this spring are different shades of green and yellow. To me, they represent Spring season.

  18. March 6, 2013 / 4:05 am

    I am loving the bright blues and icy grays from Oscar de la Renta this season . It’s nice to see such a strong colour palette. So often spring is about soft pastels and washed out hues. Not this season! Plenty of bold colour to go around. It’s refreshing to see something different.
    Thanks so much for the chance to win. Fashion Week would be a dream! :):)

  19. Reem
    March 6, 2013 / 4:33 am

    I am in love with the colour mint green this Spring. The soft pastel colour looks fresh and fun whether on accessories, nails, a coloured denim skinny pant, or any other garment.

  20. Danielle Helsby
    March 6, 2013 / 9:23 am

    I love light pinks and purples, paired with a colourful cargo pant!

  21. Michelle Janzso
    March 6, 2013 / 9:52 am

    I love coral…bright colour that always makes me feel great when wearing it.

  22. Julia C
    March 6, 2013 / 12:36 pm

    i love peaches, mint green, and a light sky blue paired with something white! Anything soft is always beautiful!

  23. annmarie marchand
    March 6, 2013 / 1:10 pm

    monaco blue and blues that aren’t too dark

  24. March 6, 2013 / 2:10 pm

    Emerald green!
    It is a light and bright color that is vivid enough to make any outfit a show stopper!
    It also goes well with any floral pattern(which is a given for spring time)! Just ask Mother Nature!

  25. Katherine R
    March 6, 2013 / 2:10 pm

    A soothing lilac color paired with a pale jade are my springtime go-to colors!

  26. martin h

    blues are the best!

  27. Kerry Johnston
    March 6, 2013 / 2:31 pm

    The thing that’s pulling me out of winter and into thoughts of spring is the colour green…especially for my clothes!

  28. Diana McGaughey
    March 6, 2013 / 5:36 pm

    Green! It’s my favourite colour!

  29. Erin Stevenson
    March 6, 2013 / 11:17 pm

    I’d have to say, my favorite colour is probably soft pink. It’s generally a colour I’ve stayed away from for the fear of looking too barbie-ish but this season I’ve seen some really beautiful pieces in pink that don’t look too princessy at all. 🙂

  30. Tracey
    March 7, 2013 / 12:04 am

    Mauve because I love lilac flowers

  31. Joel Marsolais
    March 7, 2013 / 1:13 am

  32. Sara
    March 7, 2013 / 1:21 am

    Emerald! Not only is it the pantone Colour of the Year, there are so many ways to wear it. From regal to funky, this is such a lovely colour to kick off the year.

  33. gaby
    March 7, 2013 / 10:39 am

    My favourite spring colours are orange and yellow because they are so refreshing, especially from Winter. It just allows me to jump into spring!

  34. Christina D
    March 7, 2013 / 12:13 pm

    Light blues & white. I love dresses in the colour white with a colourful statement necklace.

  35. Jess M
    March 7, 2013 / 4:51 pm

    I love, LOVE the mint green, but alas, I can’t pull it off. Maybe I can find a good purse in that colour.

  36. Elsa
    March 7, 2013 / 8:00 pm

    I love easter colors such as yellow, soft blue and pink. It’s so cheerful!

  37. Emily E
    March 7, 2013 / 11:04 pm

    My favorite color this spring is robin egg blue. I think the trend has moved from mint green to robin egg blue:)

  38. speerwani
    March 7, 2013 / 11:39 pm

    Mint is definitely going to be the colour this spring. It flatters almost every skin tone and can wear it at the office and out at night!

  39. March 8, 2013 / 9:20 am

    I just love pink cause it makes everythign look pretty

  40. Andrew Fraser
    March 8, 2013 / 1:05 pm

    forest green, it reminds me of the great outdoors

  41. Janna Fraser
    March 8, 2013 / 1:06 pm

    Sky blue and white because it’s very calming

  42. Ken
    March 9, 2013 / 2:04 am

    any pastel colour for the sun to reflect, my favourites are the light yellow and teal colours. Would love to win these tickets and bring my friend who loves these fashion shows

  43. Chris MacDonald
    March 9, 2013 / 8:56 am

    My favourite colour this spring is yellow because it reminds me of the early blooming spring flowers – daffodills, tulips and forsythia.

  44. Sophia
    March 10, 2013 / 4:55 am

    My favorite colour this spring is mint green because it gives off a soft yet refreshing vibe!

  45. Dan Brown

  46. Brittany Doll
    March 10, 2013 / 1:32 pm

    It’s actually a tie because I can’t decide. So…it’s emerald and African violet. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all!

    Blue because its my favorite colour

  49. Anthonella
    March 10, 2013 / 10:43 pm

    Light denim is definetely the new alternate to a bold statement colour such as black! The LBD or even the LWD (little white dress) from last summer is being replaced by the new DENIM DRESS OR TUNIC. A faded blue will be the perfect colour to be worn during the summer days and the deep blues are saying hello to Indigo denim !
    The denim trend goes along with a polished pony and a bright lipstick and VOILA! Shall we welcome denim as we say good bye to black and white?

  50. March 11, 2013 / 3:37 am

    mm tough question. I think it is a toss up between the black/white mod look and the breezy, denim and chambrays that are oh-so perfect for spring.
    ps: totally loving the oversized knit sweater in picture 2! NEED.

  51. Madiha Aziz
    March 11, 2013 / 4:54 am

    My favourite color this spring HAS to be a split between mint and watermelon pink! My love affair with these colors began last summer and I have been since incorporating them into my wardrobe even through the drab Canadian winter. I cannot wait to shop for key spring pieces in those colors for the spring!

  52. Poonam
    March 11, 2013 / 8:32 pm

    Hi I just wanted to start by saying I enjoy reading your blog so much 🙂 you’re a very interesting person with a good view on the fashion industry! So I’m liking the nectarine and greyed jade, like a softer, muted mint colour and the monochrome black and white mix of prints is bang on trend right now!

  53. March 12, 2013 / 1:36 am

    This spring, I can’t wait to dust off my pastel sundresses and bring them out of my closet! The cool, uplifting hues of baby pink, lilac and eggshell yellow always put me in a great mood. I’ll be pairing them with strappy heels and my favourite gold-rimmed sunnies to add a bit of glam to my look. There will certainly be a “spring” in my step this season!

  54. March 12, 2013 / 1:15 pm

    My favourite spring colour is coral!

    It is so feminine and fresh, plus looks amazing with a tan.

  55. Renee Kristina
    March 12, 2013 / 4:57 pm

    My favourite colour this spring (and every season for that matter) is a vibrant red. Accents of red spice up any outfit and make a dazzling and romantic statement.

  56. Tanya
    March 12, 2013 / 6:54 pm

    I’m loving Coral.. so springy and fun.. and quite versatile.. also, loving the Camo trend returning.. Going to rock the Coral and Camo! Great blog, and fabulous giveaway!!! Hoping to be there for a show or two 🙂

  57. Patty
    March 12, 2013 / 10:30 pm

    I have been loving mint green this spring. I love how depending on the shade of mint green you can see a tint of blue. It’s just so vibrant and the colour brightens my day =D

  58. Anne C
    March 13, 2013 / 9:24 am

    I’m still madly in love with neons! Something about the fluorescent colour can turn any blah day into a brilliant one for me.

  59. Damon Jacobs
    March 13, 2013 / 2:21 pm

    Always bet on black. You can never loose.

  60. Lena

    white, pure and simple yet fresh and elegant. It’s so versatile

  61. Haley
    March 13, 2013 / 4:52 pm

    I’m in love with dove grey! It is fabulous, can be dressed down or glammed up. Matte, shiny, sparkly, oh give me that gorgeous grey!!

  62. March 13, 2013 / 5:09 pm

    I am into MINT GREEN. I can’t seem to get enough of that colour. It is so light and fresh looking.

  63. Kaleb
    March 13, 2013 / 5:20 pm

    My favorite “colors” this spring are black and white, because you don’t want to upstage the naturally colorful blossoming trees and flowers. They might get jealous.

  64. Larisa Ls
    March 13, 2013 / 5:51 pm

    What an amazing collection! I love the use of quintessential white with the luxury turquoise. Really reminds me of sand beaches in south France! It would be an honor for me to see the new collection! Cheers

  65. Rachel
    March 14, 2013 / 2:51 am

    The mint green is my favourite colour for the season. It suits every skin tone and pairs beautifully with denim, another major trend this season.

  66. March 14, 2013 / 7:27 pm

    Hello to all Withlovegarielle followers

    LOVE the collection! My favourite colour this spring would have to be Forest Green. I feel like earth tones are going to be really in because after a long cold gloomy winter, people are craving a warm blooming spring & I think it’s the perfect colour that represents that. It’s also colour that goes with almost everything whether it be a green blazer with pink pants or a green skirt with a white crop top it’s a colour that will always flatter. Thanks!! x

    My fave color this spring is PINK! It adds the perfect feminine touch to any outfit

  69. March 15, 2013 / 12:28 pm

    I’ve been loving the pastel colours that seemed to be the main theme on most of last years fashion wear, however, I must say when I think spring I think pink! Love the feminity 🙂

    I want to say that it’s been a week filled with love. This blog, which I discovered about a week ago is absolutely everything a fashionista lives for! Great job! and Thank you!

    Denim is everything from distressed to fitted and sophisticated! Denim is by far the winner this spring/summer! From statement denim trousers to bohemian denim tunics! Shall we all welcome spring with a bright lipstick to go along with it?

  72. March 16, 2013 / 10:48 am

    I really like the peanut colour trend. Subtle neutral that you can easily pair with a crisp white or sky blue. It’s perfect for the office and casual weekends.

  73. March 16, 2013 / 10:49 am

    Loving the vibrant colour trends this Spring season, especially the pops of vibrant neon with the cobalt blues & corals. happy colours = happy people!

  74. Emely Mancilla
    March 16, 2013 / 11:02 am

    Mint is my favorite color this spring. I believe it goes with everything: black, white and other pastel colors. Plus it’s not too bright that’ll hurt your eyes.

  75. Anita H
    March 16, 2013 / 2:05 pm

    I love all of the pastel colours for spring. They are very feminine. I especially love the pink and coral tones. They tend to work with every complexion.

  76. Madeleine
    March 16, 2013 / 5:24 pm

    I am falling in love with apricot (pastel). I think it reflects of almost any skin tone nicely and can be worn casually and formally. It accents well as a bag, too. It is a young color that just melts into spring.

  77. Tamara
    March 16, 2013 / 10:46 pm

    Olive green is the best for spring because it’s a happy medium from dark colours (for winter) and bright colours (for summer).

  78. Neva
    March 15, 2014 / 7:38 pm

    My favourite spring colour is robin’s egg blue! It is the perfect colour to remind us of all the new baby animals coming this spring, and not to mention that this colour is the perfect accent to add to any outfit! 🙂

  79. Laila
    March 6, 2017 / 1:37 pm

    Yellow because it symbolizes new growth – in trees, plants and grass! Can’t wait for spring 🙂
