I’m so keen to wear all the summery pieces I’m collecting, but it’s still too damn cold! This weekend I paired this ultra cute floaty pastel pink shirt dress from Fabric Boutique with a soft grey jumper, and then a black coat to balance out the black tights on my legs and boots on my feet. The very pale grey jumper is such a good way of toning down pastels a little and keeping warm at the same time, definitely one of my most versatile purchases from this winter which will hopefully take me through until it is actually warm enough to not wear a jumper.
Missguided are really killing it with their selection of clothes, shoes and accessories at the moment, my wishlist gets bigger every time I visit their ‘new in’ pages! The two pieces are the top of my wishlist this time around, however, were this brushed silk skater dress and faux fur gilet, which I think look great together but are also super versatile too. As well as grey and baby blue, I love grey and pretty much any shade of pink for this winter, and so slowly but surely and sort of by accident I have been building up quite a vast collection of all sorts of items in those colours… oops. The one thing I find tricky about wearing pale colours in cold weather is that I have to wear black tights to keep warm, which I feel sometimes ruins the overall effect a little. Here I tried to avoid this by wearing a black leather jacket under the fur gilet, because I think that wearing some black on the top half of the outfit balances out the tights a little better. What do you think?
One of the questions I am asked the most on Tumblr is ‘what should I wear to a wedding?’ – I think that this dress from Little Mistress would be ideal! I love the fullness of the skirt and the overall silhouette of the dress, and the dainty print is perfect. The dress actually comes with a skinny blue belt, but I think it looks equally cute with the contrast of this thicker white one. I haven’t quite decided whether or not the dress is a little too formal for everyday-wear or not yet, but it would definitely work with some cute white flats.
