GOING FOR PASTELS

GOING FOR PASTELS copy

Hello Summer and helloooo lighter, pastel colours in my wardrobe! I'm drawn to all things white, shades of pastel and dusky greys at the moment so this outfit ticked all the boxes and it's pretty nice to be out of black skinny jeans and tights for once! This coat is one of my favourite recent purchases from Zara and it's the perfect length for petite ol' me. It's already gone from the website so I guess it must have been in the sale (damn) but Zara always bring out this blazer in different materials and shades and I'd love it if they brought it back a soft lemon shade. It's exactly the same design as the one from this post but it's a more structured material. 

The Summer makes me long to be on holiday and every time I look at Instagram there's a beautiful sunset, a beach or some awesome urban city to explore. Having said that, I am now a little poorer because I've just paid for my flights for my 2 week jaunt back to HK in November. So at least that's something!

  3. That jacket is SO perfect. I'm all about the pastels too lately - trying to kid myself that light colours equare lighter heat. It doesn't. So sweaty.

  9. Great blazer, it's lovely! I love the summer blazers everywhere at the moment but haven't found one that quite works for me yet. Also, cool jeans! I thought initially they must be leggings with such an ornate print!! xx

  10. I love how the pattern on your bag complements the pattern of your jeans!! Nice touch ;) I really like that you're showing a look with the necklace from Wolf & Moon I saw in your last post. It's nice to see something I recognize and remember as being you, and just being able to see it coordinated with an outfit :D

  17. Thanks Mei! It's my favourite at the moment but it's been a little too warm to wear it, which has been a nice change!

  18. Thanks Maria, i don't wear pastels often enough, so I am loving it :)

  19. I can't wait to go! I always think I should book a trip to somewhere new but when I have friends and family always end up pulling me back to that city!

  20. Ah I know and then all the holiday shopping starts....I need to have some self-restraint!

  21. Teehee, but it's far better than wearing all black! :P

  22. Thank you lovely! I haven't purchased any neons yet - but prints, yes! HK isn't always sunny, always the danger of typhoons hitting! Can't wait though!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wolf and Moon are my favourite! Such a nice treat and so beautifully packaged too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you! Me too, I only wear these in the Summer and I've been loving wearing them again this year!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yessss, petite issues right?! I once bought a top thinking it was a cute mini dress but then I realised it was a tunic and then I took it back - mostly because I couldn't unseen the tunic after my realisation! Sometimes it works in my favour though...

  26. Thanks Selina! I felt quite smart in this - maybe because I wasn't in trainers but that blazer and button down shirt deffo helps :) x

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks Monique! I'm definitely after more muted colours at the moment. Though I have just bought a brightly printed skirt...so have deviated slightly!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Aw thanks! The bag is so perfect for the Summer - literally goes with every outfit. Thanks for your lovely comment Stephanie! x

    ReplyDelete
  29. They are definitely legging-like! They're the Leigh jeans from Topshop, so they are quite a stretchy skinny fit jean - impulse buy last year and I'm totally glad I bought them, they're so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh I hadn't noticed that about the pattern! That's such a happy accident! I'm pleased you like the post Kim! It was definitely a conscious effort to make sure I photographed it as it's such a lovely piece!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I know right? I have been looking out for similar prints but haven't seen anything yet. Still all about the ripped denim in Topshop (which i've not bought into....yet!).

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks Paula! I'm glad you like! It's been so hot lately that I've not been able to coordinate the jacket in an outfit for almost 2 weeks. Definitely making the most of the sunshine, hope you are too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Me too, I so wanted a pink winter coat, but never found one but the Spring blazer is definitely more my style and wearable for me!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh Tasha, thanks for the lovely comment. I don't wear pastels often enough, so I'm definitely trying to make more of a conscious effort to do so!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Alex! One of my favourite outfits at the moment :)

  36. No problem, it looks so nice Winnie!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Aw well I don't blame you, it seems incredible - plus having friends and family there/going too, it adds to the appeal too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love that blazer; such a cute colour on you. And those trousers are gorgeous x

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks! I'm such a fan of those jeans, definitely great for the Summer.
