Fresh Pastels for Spring

At this time every year, without fail, I start to believe that there will never be an end to winter, that I'll be forced to live in my big wool coat and snugly slipper socks forever, with the horror of an ever increasing gas bill to pay. But once that first post-Christmas pay-day comes around and I can actually think about shopping again I realise that COLOURS have returned to the world. Hooray!


Specifically the shops are now filling up with pretty pastels, and being a delightfully delicate type (ahem) I will be procuring some of these pieces for myself. I have spent an unholy amount of time recently drooling over the dresses from US online shop; Shabby Apple. In particular this gorgeous pale pink Nutcracker dress works out as £59.32 including delivery ($97), although only a few sizes are left. If pink is not for you then their green checked Primrose dress is equally divine.




Oh my stars this cream Dorothy Perkins dress has just ticked all my 'buy right now!' boxes. Sleeves, cute collar and STARS! It's also an insanely affordable £19.99 - get in my basket now, you beauty.


Lets not get distracted by that super fringe/bob combo, instead let us enjoy this fabulous lilac ASOS jumper (she's clearly ruining the cuffs  - my Nana would be so pissed off). It's £32 and also comes in navy.


If you need to lower yourself gradually into the whole pastel thing, then River Island has a whole bunch of sweet cami tops in light candy shades. I'm partial to this slinky mint green one for just £10.


It may be cold outside but seeing as my heating is akin to a tropical hothouses, I should be right at home in this exotic banana jacket from Miss Selfridge, it's a fruity £45.


We're rather big fans of Kate Kanzier here at DS. Laura B very kindly brought our attention to her big sale at the start of 2014 and I have been shoe lusting since. These parma violet ballerina pumps are only £15. If you're looking for something hardier then Dorothy Perkins do these tough but surprisingly adorable pink ankle boots.


Oh readers I am in love. I am in love with this French connection clutch bag, available for £85. Probably because it reminds me of Jelly Tots - I want to fill it with Jelly Tots! Oooo, and Iced Gems, do they still exist?
