Style Steals : Pastels

Pastels are incredibly on trend at the moment, and it can be tempting, if you're like me, to want to fill your entire wardrobe up with candy coloured delights. However that could be rather expensive, so I've picked out a few key pieces to create a pastel capsule wardrobe. All the looks are from the Asos Collection, a collection that I personally cannot get enough of at the moment, the looks are affordable and so on trend.

Asos Midi Skirt With Pleats - from £28.00
This gorgeous skirt embodies two trends at once : Pastels, and  chiffon midi skirts.
It is has a high waist, and features knife pleats. Pair it with some wedges or delicate ballet flats and a light summer top.

Asos High Waisted Skinny Jeans in Lilac - £32.00
Pastel jeans are a must have for any summer wardrobe, these also from the Asos Collection, are a sugary lilac colour, and as a owner of a pair myself, I can say they look amazing with wedges and a pastel floral shirt to finish the look. 

Asos Weave Hobo Bag - £35.00
This bag is a staple for any wardrobe this summer. The light mint green colour hits the pastel trend on the head, and the woven detail adds another layer of interest.

Asos Pastel Jelly Watch - £18
This little watch is an accessory that will ensure you're never late again, whilst hitting the pastel trend at the same time! Time - get it...? No, okay... 

I hope these looks help you to create your own amazing pastel wardrobe!

Outfit of the Day!

This weekend was finally sunny, so I took advantage of the good weather and went out to Southampton  for a uni open day, here's what I wore...

I recently bought a pair of Leigh jeans from Topshop,  at first I was slightly worried about the  circulation in my legs, however they do give after a few wears (thankfully). I love the detail of the little turn ups, so cute! I paired them with a Zara blazer, a  Topshop pastel flower print top, and my cream over-sized tote from River Island. 

The nail varnish I chose is from Barry M, it's called Peach Melba. I love the name as much as I love the colour! It is a pale peachy coral colour that embodies the pastel trend perfectly. The top I' m wearing is from Topshop, it is a chiffon pale pink, with pretty little flowers and a collar detail ( I  l.o.v.e. collars at the moment).

These boots are from Topshop too, they're one of my wardrobe staples, they are so versatile and can be worn with almost anything. I think they look quite neat with the turn ups on the jeans. 

Thank you for reading! Tell me what you think of this outfit in the comments :)
