Back from little break ♥ Pastel Trends

Hey everyone, 

Sorry for the very long break I've kind of enjoyed having some free time and I had to revise for science exams :( Hopefully I'll be getting back into the swing of things and be posting more frequently now x I've kind of hit a wall trying to think of ideas for blog posts and needed some inspiration so please let me know how you get your inspiration and if there are any new tags going around that would be fun to do... anyway lets get into the main chunk of this blog post...

So today's post as you can see from above and in the title is about 'PASTEL TRENDS'... so you've all probably already heard or seen lots of pastel clothing around and about but I though that I'd do a bit of researching about to find some pastel clothing that I think is good value for money or very pretty!

One of the main shops that I like to look in for good value for money is 'New Look'... they sell a lot of up to date clothes for cheaper prices than more pricier shops such as 'Topshop' (although if you were willing to pay a bit more they do sell some gorgeous play suits and dresses that I would love to get my hands on :D). Anyway, I'm getting a bit distracted hehe... one of the first items from New Look that I spotted was this Short Sleeve Blue Cropped Jumper:

I thought this jumper would be a great piece that could go with anything from high waisted jeans and skirts to a more formal short skirt as demonstrated on the model in the picture to the left.

Also... this jumper is only £8 in the sale... so I'd grab one whilst you can ♥

This next item from New Look is also in the sale and may not be quite in the pastel trend but I though I'd include it anyway and it is something that would work with the jumper above if you wanted to dress up a bit.. this a-line mini skirt:

I would pair this skirt with something plain on top like the jumper above or the vest to the right... also, I would try to match what ever I was wearing on top to one of the colours in the skirt e.g. peach or lilac... I would also do the same with my lipstick.

Makeup example that I'd pair with it: (found on pinterest) 

This skirt is only £7 in the sale!

This last item from New Look is also in the sale and its a basic white jumper that has a bit of detailing on so you feel although you're putting in some effort hehe and its very girly.. its this white 1/2 sleeve jumper with floral embroidery:  

I feel like the cut of this jumper is a very love/hate cut... some people might love it but some people might hate it. I personally love it especially when its tucked in as shown on the model in the left picture. 

I would pair this with something high waisted... e.g. a skirt, jeans, shorts

£8 --- in the sale!

Whilst browsing online I also found some great shops for dainty jewellery to pair with pastel items and one of the main shops was 'Pastelclouds'.... I've never heard of this shop before but they seem very affordable and sell some really cute stuff like these below:

All of these bits of jewellery would be perfect to pair with the outfits and items above!
