If you live in London, you will agree with me that the weather has been somewhat bipolar for the past few weeks. It seems that whenever I am working, the sun is shining beautifully outside whilst I am stuck inside the office, but on weekends all we get is cold weather, rain and wind *sigh*. BUT since I have hope (and faith) that nice weather is coming our way, I wanted to share with you guys a Spring #Lookoftheday I wore recently. This is the first "fashion" post on the blog, but I had so much fun putting this together that I feel many more are yet to come so I hope you like it!☺
I confess, I've been known to wear black, A LOT! (which annoys my fiancé so much). Black is simple and easy, it goes with everything and makes us look slimmer. But according to Pantone, this season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the colour spectrum. This means we will be seeing a lot more pale pastels this Spring. But fear not! I created a flirty yet young look to show you that wearing colours can also be versatile and flattering and why we shouldn't be wasting our Spring days wearing black.
Having recently bought lilac coloured jeans, I was a bit stuck on how to wear them; nothing a little research on Pinterest couldn't fix. I came across similar coloured pants worn with Navy jackets, white shirts and even green tops, and I instantly fell in love with how all of these colours looked together. I opened my wardrobe for a little inspiration and saw a lot of baby pink items. That's it! Pink it is! And this is what I came up with:
♥ Blazer: Matalan
♥ Pull on Jeggings: Matalan (yes I loveeee Matalan way too much)
♥ Shoes: New Look
♥ Clutch Bag: New Look
♥ Necklace: Accessorize
And here are a few closer shots of the accessories I chose to complete the look:
These colours look so adorable together! The t-shirt print is my favourite part of this outfit! It adds a nice touch and really pulls the whole thing together. I chose a minimalist, yet contrasting necklace to add more detail. Plus, by pulling my hair all to one side, I am able to create the illusion of a slimmer face and bring attention to my neckline. All in all, this look made me feel beautiful, comfortable and even got me compliments on how nice I looked. Even though I had killer heels on, the t-shirt makes this outfit casual and very wearable. I could see myself wearing this for work for casual Friday for example (minus the heels of course), for date night with le boyf or for a night out with the girls. Here's also a variation of the same look with a Faux Leather Jacket and flats for a more relaxed look; perfect for a day out.
What do you think? Ditch your boring black clothes, and try wearing a few colours instead! I hope you can be inspired by these looks and look totally fab this season!
