What to Wear: Spring Pastels

This weekend, after the hectic dash I made to London for the Florence Finds meet up (more on that later), Sunday was about being a day of rest. We headed to the allotment in the morning then I spent the afternoon blogging, tidying, and just enjoying being at home. Come the early evening it was still balmy and light so we headed off to the local pub for a drink outside.

These pictures were as much about my outfit as the backdrop, the Magnolia trees being out on my local streets literally stop me in my tracks every day, just to stare at the shell pink flowers and the cherry blossom is out in full-on fluffy force too.

One of the nicest things about the weather getting warmer is peeling back the layers or getting to wear lighter ones after the winter, so it was lovely to be able to step out in just my lightweight French Connection pale pink jacket. (Also seen here and here.) I teamed it with a new t-shirt, possibly a future ‘find’ from Zara – a lovely soft grey in organic cotton that isn’t ridiculously see through.


Neutral accessories were the order of the day and I wore my nude ballet flats with my jeans and for the first time, swapped one of my winter bags for this cream Marc by Marc Jacobs tote. I’ve had it for probably 5 years now and it still looks great. Perfect for warmer weather.

The thing that tied it all together though? I think it was the scarf. Another old item, it had all the pastels in that I was wearing on a cream backdrop but with the blue, just tied in my jeans nicely 🙂 I love it when an outfit comes together!

So what were you wearing in the sun this weekend?

Friday Frock O’Clock

Today’s Friday Frock is a bit of a wild card… Leather, I hear you say? Yes indeed.

I’m having a bit of a (not at all S&M) love affair with leather of late. I can’t get over the classic nature of it as a fabric and the way it can work with so many trends. There surely isn’t any blouse/knit/shirt that can’t be paired with a black leather pencil skirt. That said, it’s a fine line, a very fine line.

Oddly enough there’s a huge trend for leather this summer in the SS12 collections and even odder still, the high fashion favourite is white, featuring in all the sports luxe collections. Today’s Mint Velvet neutral shift however is a classic and more wearable take on the trend that encompasses sixties, luxe, sports luxe and neutrals all in one.

I can’t wait to hear how you feel about leather – do you own a classic staple piece in leather that you can share or have you always lusted after a particular item?

As always, share your stylish finds this week and have a great weekend 🙂

Love,
Rebecca
