Spring Inspirations - Pretty Pastels

Images courtesy of
Pastels are a big trend for this Spring and it is a trend i want to fully embrace ! I love all things pastel as it immediately makes me think of my one of my favourite films Edward Scissorhands :) I love how all the women in the film dress head to toe in one pastel colour, and all the houses and cars are in matching pastels. Although i don't plan on dressing head to toe in one colour i do plan on incorporating alot of pastels into my wardrobe this year ! Here are my favourite picks of the high street so far ! 

Jumper - This is £36 from Topshop and is my favourite piece out of my picks ! I love jumpers and have bought literally about 8 this winter ! But i could always have one more :) I love the mint colour and the length is perfect to go with leggings, jeans or even tucked into a skirt or with shirt underneath for an extra preppy look :) 

Blouse - This is £30 from Topshop. I already have a jersey shirt this style from last year but i think this material makes the shirt look more expensive ! I can see this going with alot of outfits :) 

Jeans - These are £32 from Asos Curve and i really love them ! I used to have a slight obsession with coloured jeans which i think is recurring at the moment ! I love lilac and this shade is to dye for ! ( get my joke there shade - dye :P ) Its also really nice to see a pair of colour skinny jeans in the plus size section instead of plain black which i see everywhere else! They have a few other jeans in other pastels colours on Asos Curve but these where clearly my favourite ! 

Shoes - These are £60 from Topshop. I rarely fall in love with shoes ! But i have fell hard for these ! They also come in mint ! I love how shiny they are! I would love to swap the laces for pale pink ribbon to match and make them even more girly ! Although i doubt i will be able to afford these as they are way out of my price range at the moment :( 

Watch - This is £33 from Accessorise and although i don't normally wear watches i really like this one as it is more like a bracelet ! I love the gold and mint together ! I might even put this on my birthday wish list :) 

Do you like the pastel trend for this year ? What are your favourite picks ? :)

  7. Ooh I love pastels, wish I could wear them but with my red hair and white skin, they wash me out to the point of corpse-y-ness! still lilac skinnys are a long way from my face, so just maybe I could pull it off!

  8. Oooh I really feel like watching Edward Scissorhands now - such a good film!
    Love the idea of lilac skinnies but not sure how flattering they'd be on someone who's a bit overly blessed in derriere area! I've never really thought to check out ASOS Curve though - will definitely have a look x

  9. I absolutely adore pastels! I would love a kitchen like the one in your pic! Love the lilac jeans, I really want to invest in some pastel jeans for spring! XX

  10. I love Edward scissor hands. I don't really suit pastels, sadly. That won't stop me wearing them though. X
