PASTELS

What's wrong with me? While considering myself to be the girl who generally goes for black I now find myself craving (as you may have noticed) for sheer pastel colours and floral prints. Blame it on the upcoming spring, blame it on me being influenced by lovely blogs over the years. Oh well, pretty it is either way.

Some spring-y items from two of my all-time favourite brands; a babyblue floral dream from Vivian of Holloway and another lovley summery dress from Trashy Diva. And why not throw in some peachy Parikkas, silky lingerie and fluffy accessories while I'm at it?

From left to right:
Fifites Halterneck Rose Garde Blue Dress from Vivien of Holloway,
Pirouette tulle necklace (that I'd wear in my hair...) Etsy / DeliciousSoul,
Peach Harlow Lingerie Set from What Katie Did via PandorasChoice,
Circle Skirt Day Dress from Trashy Diva and
the Raquel Shoe in powder pink by Minna Parikka.

I'm also drooling over this pair of denim dungarees, from Tara Starlet (also included in my all-time favourites); to be worn with my toffee coloured pumps an my hair rolled up with a scarf around it. They also come in full-lenght and I can't decide which one'd be better, jumpsuit or trouser version?



But but, for the moment none of these items are neither in nor out of my budget since I don't have one; I am not getting anything new! But,I do have a couple of floral fabrics in my closet waiting to be sewn into something, and I have an amazing rosy dress still unworn until it's premier in slightly warmer times!

Oh, and not to forget; if you order a springtime dress from Vivien of Holloway now yo get a matching bolero included! Worth checking out...

I know what you mean! I've been swooning over any type of summer dress lately. I haven't been an all-dress girl since I was about 3 years old! :0) You picked out some gorgeous pieces.

That Vivien of Holloway dress is so cute and would look great on you. It's so hard not buying new things when there are so many adorable things to buy!

Dotti said...

Go for the short version. It's so boyish... One day, when you have a budget again.

Love Dotti.

I love the Vivien of Holloway dress, and the Minna Parikka Shoes, of course ;)

Grant said...

I have my eye on a completely impractical fur collar at the moment; but I am not sure I would be brave enough to wear it around the place?

I think you'd look amazing in either the short or the full legnth version :D

Hej!
Tack för kommentaren!
Den rosa tyllkjolen är från Gina Tricot.
Den skulle passa perfekt till de där rosa pumpsen du visar här.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

逆援助 said...

セレブ達は一般の人達とは接する機会もなく、その出会う唯一の場所が「逆援助倶楽部」です。 男性はお金、女性はSEXを要求する場合が多いようです。これは女性に圧倒的な財力があるから成り立つことの出来る関係ではないでしょうか?
