Pastels in mint and pink

Are you ready for Primavera? We have hints of Spring in the day, but it is still cold cold cold at night...

I see tons of pastels out in the fashion/ decor world, but there are touches of neon too...
I lived the eighties quite thoroughly, and am not sure if I am ready for neon again  ~
I love the fifties and their use of colour...
How about you, what colours are you drawn to?

Have a delightful weekend,
