Pretty pastels plus features, elsewhere

Yep – it’s those wedding trousers again! I’m trying to get as much wear out of them before it’s too warm for lined, wool trousers… I always miss them over the summer. And I’m really rather loving pastels right now: who’d have thought when I wore them to death as a teenager in the 80s?!

The scarf I’ve had for a while and now realised that it will go perfectly with just about any pastels that I wear, like mint loafers for example – I’m on a one-woman loafers crusade at the moment. Finally – my new fave nail polish colour is pastel blue, though I must find the time to do something more interesting than just one colour on all nails!

Shirt: Marks & Spencer, Scarf: ASOS, Striped top (just seen): La Redoute, Trousers: Coast, Loafers: ASOS, Belt: ASOS, Bag: Karen Millen, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, Earrings: Accessorize, Watch: J Jeans by Jasper Conran, Bangles: Gift from my parents, Gold bracelet: ASOS, Large gold ring: Topshop, Gold band: ASOS, Nails: Barry M Blue Moon 317

Imogen at Inside Out Style for her weekly “Stylish Thoughts“: I’m so chuffed to have been asked – if you have a minute do check out my interview!

Plus the very sweet Kristen of The Clothing Menu has featured an outfit of mine (with another to follow later today) – she focuses on what clothes to wear to work:

Thank you guys, so much!!

Happy Wednesday folks xoxo

    The drape on those pants really is amazing. As is all your layering and accessorizing. You look fabulous!

    Besides the fact that you're wearing the heck out of pastels, which is not always an easy thing to do, you have the most amazing shoes!

  8. March 21, 2012 / 11:48 pm

    You are pretty much the queen of accessorizing. I don't know how you do it, but whenever you pile on the bracelets and rings it looks amazing! It usually just looks weird when I try to do it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those loafers are so fun! If I wasn't on a self-imposed shoe-buying ban for the next month and a half, I might be tempted to get them for myself ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Stacey, you're such a sweetheart ๐Ÿ™‚ Don't know how you're doing a shopping ban, I don't think I could cope (I know that if I swore myself off anything I'd subconsciously want it more)!!! C xoxo

    Oh, pastels are so pretty on you! And I love how you pull it through from nails to shoes : >

  10. March 21, 2012 / 7:40 pm

    Loving your blue nails and all the colors in this outfit in general. The scarf works with it so well too! Congrats on the interview! Can't wait to read it

    Really liking those pants…they've got a great vintage vibe with the wide-leg cut and loose linen-y (I think?) fabric…really lovely!

    You are quite stunning! Very pretty outfit. Love that shade of blue on you.

  13. March 21, 2012 / 4:46 pm

    A great use of pastels! It's been so yucky and slushy out that I have to wait for Spring to actually arrive before I wear pastels, or I'm going to be a dirty mess!!

    Love and adore your outfit and enthusiasm! Thank you for providing such fashionable inspiration.

    Have a well dressed day!

    Those pastels look so great on you, I'm beginning to consider investing in a couple of items, maybe in that light blue. And if I could just have those shoes!
