Pretty in Pastels

Hey guys!

Spring is nearly upon us (well, 6 weeks away) and the shops are filled with pretty Spring colours and patterns! One of my favourite Spring trends, is pastels. I love how pastel colours can make any piece of clothing look instantly cute and elegant.

A big hit this year has been the pastel colour Boyfriend coats, as pictured above. This baby blue one is from Glamorous and is £78. I love these and think they're the perfect kind of coat for the weather we're having at the moment in Germany (which is a hell of a lot better than the UK, as I've heard!)

This PVC pastel pink pencil skirt (say that quickly!) from Fashion Union is only £20 and again, has been a big favourite in the past couple of months within the blogging community. PVC is usually for a harsher and edgier look but this pretty pink shade gives it a cute spring girly feel.

The shoes above are my favourite from these pastel picks. They're a great dupe for the Jeffrey Campbell Mulder's and are £75 from River Island. I love the thick white platform and cleated sole and again, a heavy shoe has been made to look somewhat elegant with this pink touch.

The pastel yellow coloured top is from River Island and is £35. It's embellished with little flowers and has yellow lace detailing too. It's just a really pretty top and very Spring/Summer than could be dressed up or down. It's a yellow that all can wear too as it's not too bright and won't completely take all the attention from your outfit.

The lilac cami above is a really good staple piece to have in your wardrobe. It's £18 and from Topshop. This could be worn with the PVC skirt just tucked in to create an elegant use of colour blocking or just with jeans as a pretty Summer top. Cami's are everywhere right now and it's not hard to see why; they're casual, cute and oh so elegant.

Finally, is this little mint green clutch from Missguided which is £14.99. This would compliment a Spring evening outfit perfectly. It's a very simple design but effective; it could be used with darker colours to add a splash of colour or paired with other pastels for that perfect Spring look.

So if you haven't been to the shops yet to stock up on Spring pastels, what are you waiting for?!
