Pastel lovin'

peplum top, kitten sunglasses, earrings and floral skirt: asos

I don't know why I've done this backwards, but now we're approaching winter and everyone is wearing black, tartan and darker pieces, I've fallen in love with pastels. I've never been such a fan before; being so deathly pale I assumed they'd completely wash me out, but with my freshly dyed dark brown hair and rediscovery of 60s eye make-up, I thought it was time to give it a go.

I found this beautiful floral lace skirt on asos and really based the rest of the purchases around that - that's the only downside to only just discovering pastels, I have nothing to go with them! I thought a pretty peplum top would go really well with this skirt, and the bow just sold it to me. I've been lusting after these sunglasses for ages too, and I know, I know, the sun has well and truly disappeared, but I'm hoping for some beautifully sunny autumn days soon. I never see new clip on earrings in stores, so it was a pleasant surprise to see these online, and in the sale no less!

This outfit looks like it's made for spring, but I'm hoping I can make it work; I'm thinking of teaming it with polka dot tights, black mary janes and a camel jacket. Who's with me, are you a pastel winter wearer?

  13. You can definitely make it work! There was loads of candy hues on the runway for A/W so if the designers can they you most certainly can!
