Welcome back to a new blog post and thank you for the positive feedback about last week's wardrobe clearout post.
Now that your wardrobe has been cleared out, it is time to start focusing on introducing new pieces for the Spring and Summer time. Trends such as florals, pastels and denim are clear winners when it comes to this season and it is obvious why. Today, we are going to look at pastels - my personal favourite!
If you are new to pastel palettes or just don't know where to start with the trend, fear not! Subtle changes and additions work perfectly and can often be the best way to approach the trend.
Pastel blue, pink, lemon and beige are just some of the beautiful colours we are introduced to and they certainly help in brightening up our wardrobe and mood.
Pastel pink is a subtle, feminine colour that can be worked through a blazer such as the one I have pictured below:
I picked this up in Zara last Summer and it really has become a staple item in my wardrobe. I reach for it for day time workwear as well as evening wear such as the outfit above. It was €49.95 and totally worth it.
Shoes are another area where you can bring in pastels in a subtle way if you prefer to keep your outfits more classic and demur.
These cute brogues are from Clarks and are very comfortable (comfort is key they say!) and go with denims, black skinnies as well as white jeans. Similar pairs can be found in Penneys.
My all time favourite colour is baby/powder blue so I am quite happy when Spring comes around as I can wear it as much as I want! I picked up this scarf from Penneys for around €6 and have not taken it off since!
As I mentioned before, pastels can be introduced through accessories in a subtle way. Scarves are a great way to do this and do not have to cost a fortune. This blanket scarf will be perfect for those summer evenings where it gets chilly but you'll still look chic!
I am going to post a few pictures of pastel inspiration at the end of this post. The options are endless!
Thank you for reading and I hope you found some pastel inspiration,
