Dressing Like an Ice Cream

24 June 2012

outfit post fashion blogger

Do you ever wake up and feel like dressing in full-on 50s Americana mode?  It certainly wasn't due to the weather (which was as confusing as ever on this day) but sometimes it's best to disregard the forecast and dress like how you feel.

How to wear pastel colours

Cardigan - Topshop
T-shirt - Weekday
Shoes - c/o Brandosa

I've had this skirt since March now but it's never seemed quite right to wear it until now.  In windy June, of course.  I was tempted by the Primark version of the Prada car print skirt, but thought better of it after seeing it in reality and decided to go for a subtler take of the collection with yet another pleated skirt.  My trusty Topshop green cardigan has been perfect in adding a pastel touch to the most sensible of outfits and the Tatty Devine necklace strikes again to provide the random necklace quota. 

Have you been embracing the pastel trend, despite the weather?  Are you bored about me talking about the weather?  It really is frustrating to go through a few seasons in just one day!

  3. AGREED the weather is really starting to get my goat! I'm really hoping I've used that phrase in the right context : / We'll probably wake up to snow tomorrow.
    With this in mind I reckon you've done exactly the right thing by dressing how you feel, plus you look fab so that's always a win!
