Well it’s been another beautiful week of sunshine and warm temperatures and it looks set to continue next week too; woohoo! Spring is finally here so it’s time to break out the softer colours and lighter layers.
This beautiful baby pink waterfall blazer is from the brand Pala D’oro from Carraig Donn. This blazer has a lovely loose and flowy shape as well as a soft crepe texture. Its light enough that I won’t be sweltering if I wear it on summer nights out but it’s warm enough for now as well. The colour is a perfect pastel for this time of year; it really gives a spring time feel. Baby pink is a colour that I’m not that bothered about myself, but I always get loads of compliments on how the colour suits me when I wear it.
The top is old and it’s from H & M. There are loads of similar style tops in the shops now; there was even a very similar one with long sleeves in Carraig Donn. The high neck and lace details makes this top really pretty, especially paired with this jacket. But this top could also have a festival or boho vibe if it was worn with denim cut off shorts or a floral maxi skirt or anything with fringing.
The jeans are the Erin Jeggings from River Island. I recently sang their praises in this post so I won’t bang on about them again here, except to say that I still love them.
The nude shoes are Kate Appleby for Knightsbridge.
The necklace is also from Carraig Donn. I live in a small town with a large Carraig Donn; I love going for a little wander around in there. I very rarely leave empty handed.
Are you wearing paler colours yet? What’s your favourite pastel?
Well the festivities were in full swing this weekend and are all set to continue for the coming few weeks. Saturday was all go for me. I was at a christening for my new baby niece during the day and then met up with some friends in the evening who were on the 12 pubs of Christmas. I started out the day looking classy in monochrome with gold accents and finished it a bit worse for wear in a Christmas jumper.
The blazer with gold zips is from Penneys. This cream lace top is from H & M. The lace skirt is from Awear and you can see it here and here in previous posts. These gold studded pumps are from New Look and I bought the necklace in Portugal.
The eye look:
Crease: Max Factor, Ferocious Black
Lid and Crease: Max Factor Feral Brown (over the black to soften it)
Lid: Lancôme Fil D’ Or (over the brown, which adds warmth to the yellowness of the gold)
Liner: Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bronze
Mascara: Lancôme Virtuous
I love black and gold for Christmas nights out, what’s your go to party look?
Sorry the pictures aren’t great because I was a bit rushed.
Normally I like to have a bit of structure to my posts so readers know what to expect. Fridays are always style, Wednesdays are always beauty and Mondays can be either depending on what happened over the weekend. Inspiration for posts come from what’s going on in my life, if I like how I did my makeup or my outfit then I take some photos and write a post about it. So with that in mind, today I am breaking the rules for a style post on a Wednesday because of the sunny weather (I’m a mad wan, I know). I want to post about summery clothes while I have the chance.
This coral skirt is from Swamp, the lace top is Vero Moda and the denim jacket is from New Look.
I’m not a fan of wearing shorts; I just don’t like the way they look on me. This skirt is light enough to keep me cool. Another reason for the long skirt is that I’m covering my legs because I had a spay tan last week and it’s fading really patching and my legs look mucky (GLAMOROUS!) .
This necklace is from New Look.
I bought these sandals while on holiday in Portugal.
What’s your favourite easy breezy summer outfit?
