Pretty Pastels

The occasional burst of sunshine we've had over the past couple of weeks is making me (rather optimistically) think that Spring must be on its way by now! Today is, after all, the first official day of Spring, so what better time to start thinking about some pretty pastel pieces? From beauty to clothing to interior accessories, you just can't beat pastel shades for the few months of Springtime, so here are some bits and pieces I'm loving at the moment!
Springtime Pastels
3. Large Lace Neckpiece, I Love A Lassie, £395
6. Distressed Baroque Metal Mirror in 'Petrol', Out There Interiors, £66
I love the look of the new Revlon matte Colourburst blams and this shade is just beautiful. Having tried out a couple of B.'s make-up products recently, I'm keen to try more, and this Shimmer Block looks like the perfect combination of shades for a glowing Springtime complexion. I first spotted I Love A Lassie on Laura's blog and am just in love with their lace collection, cast from genuine antique lace fragments; they're so delicate and unusual-looking! One thing I miss about working at Debenhams is all the pretty shoes; these beauties from Faith are just a lovely mint-green shade. Lovely! The new Gelly Hi-Shine shades from Barry M all look super pretty and from what I hear, the formula is pretty awesome too - I suspect all three will be making their way into my collection at some point... I'm in love with the petrol-blue colour of this mirror from Out There Interiors and would love to have it at the bottom of my stairs; mirrors are doubly good because they make a room feel much lighter and airier! Lime green nails are, in my opinion, a good look, and this Jessica Custom Colour shade looks so pretty; it'd be lovely on my toes, maybe with a glittery topcoat. Finally, this polka-dotted skater dress from New Look is just too sweet, and a super bargain price too. Skater dresses are so flattering, I'd wear this with black Converse and a leather jacket!
What are your favourite pastel pieces at the moment? Do you find yourself drawn to pastel shades in Spring? Do you like my choices?

  3. I really want to try those Barry M polishes- I have other colours in the 'Gelly' collection and the formula is lovely. They're such pretty colours for Spring! The Jessica nail colour is really different too, I wouldn't usually go for green but I actually love the look of that shade! Alice xx
