If you are reading this post but are not aware of my YouTube video on CHA Winter Favorites then let me give you a little backdrop so you understand what I'm doing. I have planned my YouTube video and blog post to go hand in hand. So as you watch my video you can follow along with this blog post and look at images of what item I am talking about.  There will be a coordinating number that goes with the items listed in my video.

Here is the video so you can follow along. Enjoy!

I begin my video by talking about some of the current trends I noticed at this years Winter CHA. I have divided them into 2 different sections; the first are color trends, and the second are trends in items that I have noticed.


A) Color Trends:

1-Dreamy Colors: soft pastels, watercolor look.
You can find this color palette in collections such as" Dear Lizzy's Daydreamer, Glitz's Carpe Diem, Heidi Swapp's Dreamy Collection and in various Webster's Pages collections.
