#OMCZ 29 – Pretty in Pastels

#OMCZ

I almost forgot about this weeks #OMCZ post…. Where has the time gone??  There I lay in bed at approximately 11:30pm Tuesday night thinking to myself “Mmm…. we must be due an #OMCZ post soon….”, checked my emails and it would seem I was correct….. tomorrow…… Arghhhhh!!!!  Needless to say, I was not prepared and this has made me late with my post, and with added issues with WordPress yesterday, I am posting two days late… Better late than never I guess!

This fortnight’s post has been chosen by the wonderful Hollie of Pretty Big Butterflies, and this is what she said:

“Pastels are here for Spring & Summer but I’d love some inspiration from you lovely ladies. I want to see you florish in fondant colours. Pinks, Mints, Sky Blues… the list goes on. I don’t want to hide away this Summer so this will be good practise!”

Now, as it is still like winter out there (there was apparently snow within 30 miles of where I live Wednesday night, according to Facebook updates), it seems strange to be getting the pastels out, and I have to confess, my wardrobe does not runneth over with them, not any that you haven’t already seen anyway! But, thanks to a cheeky little SimplyBe purchase I have managed to put this little ensemble together.   I know, there is still a lot of black, but you can see the pastels are trying to sneak in, and with what I have seen in the shops whilst doing a bit of cyber window shopping (feel free to check out my previous wish list posts here and here), I know I will be getting my chubby little mits on some more in the coming months…. So watch this space!

Skirt – SimplyBe (available here)
Top – Yours Clothing (Old)
Scarf – Ebay (similar available here)
Ankle Boots – Boohoo (available here)
Kimono Cardigan – F&F at Tesco (available here)

Loving this skirt from SimplyBe!  I went with the 24 and it is very true to size and not too much VBO.  It i s a thick jersey, and reminds me very much of my Pink Clove Tartan Skater Dress (featured in my post here).  I defy anyone to not love this skirt if they added it to their wardrobe!   I also love my new boots (Boohoo), and I will feature these in a later review post on their own.

Have the pastels started to invade your wardrobe yet this Spring?
