Phototastic-08_04_2015_98b4bae7-2f48-4a8b-9b93-394589525946

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.

Pala D'oro Baby Pink Waterfall Blazer
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.

H &  M Lace Detail Top
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.

River Island Black Erin Jegging
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.

Nude Courts
The nude shoes are Kate Appleby for Knightsbridge.

Carraig Donn Rose Gold Heart Necklace
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?

If you have been reading my little blog for a while now, it won’t have escaped your attention that mint green is one of my favourite colours.

Carraig Donn Pala D'Oro Mint Green Top

I bought this top from Carraig Donn, the label is Pala D’Oro. It has quite a few things going on that are always going to appeal to me. The obvious being that its mint green, then you have the gold zips on the black panels at the shoulders. I don’t know why but I just like the contrast of gold hardware against black material. The shape is also one that is easy to wear in that the looseness can really hide a multitude. I would normally say that wearing baggy clothes can make you look larger but the way that this is elasticated at the waist brings it back in so it can look slimming as long as you wear it with something fitted on the bottom like skinny jeans or fitted trousers.

Dorothy Perkins Gold Zips Black TrousersPenneys Black Blazer with Gold Zips

 

I paired it these trousers from Dorothy Perkins and this blazer from Penneys, You will also note the gold zips on the trousers and the blazer, it’s not an accident.

New Look Pointed Court

I was going to wear my green Enzo Angiolini shoes but it was raining so I went with these black ones with gold on the heels from New Look because they are more comfortable and I can walk faster in them.

Michael Kors Clutch

The clutch is Michael Kors, I think the colour ties in nicely here but I wear this clutch even when it doesn’t match because I think it’s a classic and I love it.

 

The bracelet is something I picked up on holidays years ago and the earrings are also old from Penneys.
