pleats and pastels



Top - Internacionale
Skirt - Vintage
Blazer - New Look


Forget raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, pleats and pastels are possibly two of my favourite things of the moment, hence why I was so chuffed when I found this skirt whilst vintage shopping in Manchester. It is just perfect and was a steal at just a tenner. And finally I have found a white blazer that I quite like. I have been on a blazer hunt for the past few weeks, trying on a plethora of different styles and cuts, but everything looked too boxy on me. I had resigned myself to the fact that I was not meant to own one until I discovered this little number from New Look. It isn't perfect, but serves a purpose and compliments this outfit rather well.


I hope you are all having great weekends. I have been out walking in the sunshine today, soaking up some rays. I now need to shake and shimmy and go out with Rob to pick up some picnic-inspired supplies for a champagne picnic we are off to tomorrow. Fingers crossed the weather stays sweet.

I love a bit of pleating at the moment as well, you wear it so well Milly. Really like the cornflower blue and your blazer (: I saw the loveliest coral/burnt orange mixed colour blazer in Topshop yesterday, wish I could justify it as another Summer purchase. Ooh la la, champagne picnic eh? Hope you both have a great time tomorrow! xx

LOL at the shameless plug above this.. anyway you look amazing as per! These colours suit you so much, so it's a good job you love pastels!

TheOtherSideofCool said...

haha also 'LOL-ing' at the plug above, I got the exact same thing, SHOCK!

Really love this outfit, so pretty and delicate. Also love that your lips match your skirt, really cute.

Love your red hair... makes me want to go red again but I had the same issues with maintaining it. Takes so much to keep its fibrancy and shine!
