April Showers

6 Apr

SO: we’re in April now and I feel like I still haven’t really got my Spring warderobe in to gear. I was so keen to get on the pastels trend about a month ago but nothing in the shops was tickling my fancy – but now that I’m kind of ‘over’ it, pastels are everywhere. There’s some lovely bits about, here’s my top picks.

Pleated midi skirt £19.99 New Look,  T-Bar Shoes £45 ASOS,  Colour block shirt dress £34.99 New Look,  Dress, £45 Miss Selfridge,  Broderie Anglaise blouse, £29.99 from Zara

Refreshing

12 Feb

I always tell myself: stick to dark colours. Any brief explorations I have with wearing colour normally ends abruptly when I see a photo of myself afterwards and have a ‘What was I thinking?’ moment whilst hauling the offending items down to the charity shop.  Well, much to my surprise, this pastel trend that’s happening at the moment has coaxed me out of the goth cupboard for just long enough to plot a few purchases.

Elephant earrings from Miss Selfridge, Peter Pan collar dress from ASOS, Cardigan from Oasis, Meadham Kirchhoff for Topshop tee (not yet available), Barry M Nail Paints in Blue Moon, Peach Melba, Strawberry Ice Cream and Berry Ice Cream, Sequined eyelashes by Shimmer Twins at ASOS, Scallop-edged top at River Island, Lace skirt also River Island

So, what do you want for Christmas? Here is my preliminary Wish List; some items are more realistic than others but it’s always worth putting it out there!
