Jeans: New Look VIA Style Compare*
Bag: Camden Market
Shoes: Primark
Ring: Pretty Bow Peep*
Necklace: Temporary Secretary*

When I first starting hearing about pastels being big this season I did do a little sigh and thought ‘’Well, that’s a trend I won’t be taking part in’’ because being the size I am I tend to stick to darker colours, especially on my bottom half, because it makes me feel more comfortable. But when I had the chance to try out some pastel coloured jeans I did have a bit of moment and thought why not?! So here I am again, stepping out of my comfort zone and creating probably one of my favourite outfits. I bought this scarf back in December whilst I was doing some Christmas shopping. I liked the print so much I bought two, one for my Mum and one for myself. Not bad for £3 eh? I’ve teamed with a favourite necklace of mine from Temporary Secretary which is a beautiful shop and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

This outfit has been entered in a styling comp by Style Compare which involves 4 bloggers showing how to style up a pair of pastel jeans. If you like my look then please vote for me by clicking the heart at the bottom. You could even win a £25 voucher to spend on the site! How exciting?! Thank you to anyone who does!

I’m so glad to be back to my ‘normal’ self now and completely rid of that awful cold I had last week! I do however have a very sore gum thanks to my wisdom tooth trying to make its way in to my mouth! I’ve been really luckily with my teeth actually; I’ve never really had issues with the tooth itself, just the gum around it. But it never lasts for too long so hopefully it’ll be the same thing time too!

I had a really lovely weekend without actually doing much. It was really lovely to spend some time with Matt and our friends; we ate lots of lovely food and drank lots of yummy drinks! I’m really sad to think that so many of our friends are moving away in the Summer, this year seems to be the year people want to try new things somewhere else! Hopefully this will be me next year, I’m starting to feel like I’m done with Leeds now and I need to adventure somewhere else!

Oh and just before i go i just want to say thank you to everyone who supports me and my blog! There's been so much negativity in the blogging world recentlty that i just want to share my love and appreication!

I hope you all have a lovely week whatever you’re up to!

  18. All the recent negativity is so disheartening, where has it come from?! We've all played so nice until now. That makes it even more annoying.

    Loving this look, good luck with the competition!
