HOW WILL YOU WEAR YOUR PASTELS?

Hi Everyone,
I have been thinking about what to buy to update the wardrobe for the spring/summer. I buy magazines all the time, I shouldn't really, all they make me do is want to spend!

Anyway, if like me you have been browsing the mag's out there, you will have noticed that the pastel shades are going to be even more popular than their brief appearance last year.

 So this is where I'm at now, I really like these pastel shades, the only problem is that at fifty are they safe to wear?
Get it wrong, and I think I could end up looking like Dorothy from the Wizard Of Oz or Alice in Wonderland!.
I have grabbed a couple of pictures from Pinterest with what I have in mind


                  I love this baby pink colour a smart/casual look that doesn't seem too young


                  Here we are again, baby pink, this time teamed with black, so elegant and grown up

 So I have picked out a few pieces that I would like to purchase (all reasonably priced ! ) take a look


I think this shirt from marks and spencer would look great with the pastel pink trousers I already have a bargain price £12.50 I think that's the look I am after teaming the blues,pinks or yellows together to make the look on trend. But this will also look great with navy or white jeans


And here in pastel yellow, just as good, and I think will look great with baby blue £12.50


             
                  I would team this necklace with the blue shirt, from New Look £7.99


    These trousers  are gorgeous. Team this with the blue shirt and the necklace from H&M £14.99




This is just what I'm looking for. I bet a white shirt under this will look good, and grown up with pastel pink trousers the look I'm after is complete. It's from Asos for new look £12.99 Bargain!



                              This cardigan from M&S £18.00 will go great with this skirt.....

  
   I put this on my birthday wish-list a little expensive £199.00 but I so love it and it's real leather


Actually maybe just accessories will do the job, this necklace from new look £9.99   with a white T and trousers may be enough


This is what I have in mind, pastel girly colours, with an edge. This faux leather biker from Mango is Cool, and still looks good with black £34.99

Of course it doesn't have to be clothing to update your wardrobe maybe just some accessories will do



This blue pastel bag is just  the right shade and a little more grown up. From M&S £29.50?


Girls best friend, these will update the wardrobe. I think these would look great with the M&S leather skirt too. There from New Look £19.99


And if you only want to have a little peep of these baby pastel shades this cuff is beautiful, from Dorothy Perkins £8.50

So that's me done. Are you planning your spring/summer wardrobe ? what do you have in mind? what do you think is going to be high in the fashion stakes this year? Comments please would be great
