Pastels have to be one of my favourite trends for SS14. These lighter, weaker hues instantly update your wardrobe for the summer season and look so pretty in the sunshine!
When I wear pastels, I try to wear them head-to-toe as bolder colours tend to look too harsh against ice-cream shades.
I wore this outfit the other day when I popped into town to run some errands. Unfortunately, it was completely overcast and the temperature was quite mild.
I decided to throw on this t-shirt tunic with a swirly, artistic floral print. I actually bought it in the Topshop sale last season and totally fell in love with it. It's a bit quirky and anyone who knows me knows that I do like a bit of individuality!
I paired the tunic with light denim leggings to keep myself warm, then slipped these nude, patent sliders on my feet.
I have to admit, I wasn't a big fan of sliders when I first read that they were going to be the shoe of SS14. I thought they were too chunky, ugly and perhaps even a little bit mannish. However, I have been completely converted as time has gone along. I prefer the ones that have a nice little print on the strap, or are patent, metallic and/or sparkly - basically the ones that have a bit more to them than just a plain, bland strap. These beauties are a bargain at a mere £4 from Primarni.
I also decided to use my Guess satchel to lift the colour palette further, then compliment the tones of the outfit with glitzy, gold jewellery. This had to include a statement necklace, as who doesn't love a good statement necklace?!
Beach waves and a slick of pastel pink lipstick completed this laid-back look.
