Spring is here and I am celebrating by swapping out monochrome for a pastel explosion.
Although I am excited for colour, I am finding it very difficult to swap out my black blazer for a white one. This has been a good kick start though. As Helen mentioned on Wednesday, we were invited by Style Fruits to join her Pastel Me Pretty Spring Style competition. There are a lot of great outfits to get you inspired for sorbet shades. You can vote for your favourite here.

Speaking of, I don't think this look is my favourite. This is the first time I've worn this quilted t shirt. I've seen them everywhere but I don't really think it works on a boobilicious curvy lady like myself. The pink jeans I purchased last summer and only wore them a couple of times (including my awesome polkadot look). Bright trousers are like a beacon for my thighs. I also find Topshop jeans a little.. how do I put it... *roomy* in the zip area... I don't need a bulge there thanks, Toppers! Think I might not wear these again.

I've kept the look clean with the fitted white crop jacket and styled it with my super cute leather bib from R U Boutique, as seen on my Spring Wishlist back in March. I love it!

On yet another windy windy day my cutesy 90's side ponytail was swishing around all over the place. It was fun... for about ten minutes. Now it's making me contemplate cutting my hair short again. My wedding's out the way, so I don't need it long any more. I've been looking at old photos of my old hairstyles, mostly long bobs. Or the 'pob', but before VB claimed it as her look. Or perhaps I'll get my fringe cut again. A big chunky pony fringe? Or a sweeping side one? I've had too many hairstyles and it leaves me with too many decisions!

In the meantime, it's back to hair swishing for me, while I still can!

  1. Haha, that last photo is amazing! I'm surprised you don't like this outfit, I think it's great. I've wanted a quilted top for ages but can't seem to find any that suit me! And I definitely didn't notice a naughty bulge, haha! Bring back the pob, I say. I used to love having long hair but now I get so frustrated if it dares to grow past my shoulders xx

    1. Thanks lovely. I need the jacket or the top is too boxy. Aw I love it when you have BIG hair but I suppose shorter gives your curls more bounce, no?
      For first time in my life I have split ends so think I need a big chop anyway. xx

  2. This is a lovely set of jewellery so pretty and ready for the summer, is that paua shell in the necklace? it look so preety

    1. Thanks, I love it. It's actually printed leather (galaxy print) with beading. It's from ringuboutique in Hungary (link in post) there are a few to choose from x
