Another take on pastels. Plain colours but all with different textures. Knitt, lace and denim. Hugely comfortable, vastly wearable and casual. I have swapped the belt for another one that picks up on the colour of the trainers
is what I am ready for. All last summer I was obsessed with combining pink and green in one outfit and the fascination persist. All the items aren’t new but I am trying to find new ways of wearing them differently. The trousers have a metallic finish that is duo-chrome pink and green and they match the coat perfectly. White is the best to combine with any pastels hence the white, broderie angles, button up shirt, and white trainers for comfort. I have done some DIY on the coat though. It came with hideous brown buttons which speedily got changed to white buttons with a silver rim making the coat look expensive.
Has anyone spotted yet my obsession with pairing green with pink this season? I just can’t help myself. I find it so fresh. This is another take on the theme. The blouse has some intricate stripes situation, but the main interest lies with the quite oversised necklace that I had for years now. I have kept everything else rather plain. The colour of the sandals matches one of the colours in the necklace. This is what I would be wearing if I was allowed outside.
I am very pleased with this look. I have bought this cardigan at the beginning of the year because it looked very preppy to me. I prefer navy blue to black and I have a lot of things in this colour. As I was rummaging through my things I have come across the skirt that I got in a charity shop a long time ago and it all clicked, the colours are spot on. I have chosen green, stripy vest to make it more modern and give it some interest and also because I’m obsessed with green at the moment. The pale gold earrings match the hardware in the cardigan.
Well, let’s be honest there is only so much you can do with a pair of trousers in summer weather. This look is more for the evening when the temperatures drop a little and you can actually bear a long sleeve. I do seem to like this particular shade of green as I do have a couple of things that go together. The same idea with sandals but these are more cream colour than stark white and a matching bracelet and pale gold earrings, as a necklace, in my opinion, would be too much.
As you can see the trousers are staying with me. Now I need to try to style them differently every time. So this time a little bit 50ties style with a white linen shirt tied at the waist, big, black shopper and flat, white sandals.
A wild card outfit. I got these trousers in the sale. With the current situation, you can not try anything in the fitting rooms, so they had to come home with me. To be honest, after trying them on I was not blown away but they are growing on me. The test is to be able to think of at least 3 outfits featuring them and I am going to post them as I go along. Probably it’s only a flash in the pan trend, on the other hand, floral prints do come back summer after summer and pink is a prominent colour in my wardrobe, Time will show. I’m styling it with a vest in one of the colours from the mix and of course white trainers. Don’t have any decent pink earrings so a bracelet will do.
Vests are back in. The one I’m wearing has a ‘bonus feature’ which can double up as a ‘necklace. The flats have bows on them, so I may not be wearing any accessories, but there is a lot going on if you take into account that the vest has a metallic thread.
I have seen this combination of pink and emerald green somewhere and decided to wear it in an outfit. I knew I had a jumper in emerald but nothing else and then I have remembered the peacock earrings that haven’t been out since early 2000, I’m still surprised that they have not disintegrated and they definetely make a statement.
