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!

I’m really pleased to share a great feature about NDAL:

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!


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!

    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 πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚

      Thanks Stacey, you're such a sweetheart πŸ™‚ 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 : >

    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!<3

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

  15. 21 March 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!!

    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!

    Thanks so much Catherine for sharing my blog! And I love the pastels – from fingernails to shoes!
