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!

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?
