Five Take: Pastels

Hello!! Sorry for the absence of a Five Take last week, due to several factors we decided to skip a week, so here we are back with pastels!

I had to google pastels because although of course I had a rough idea of pastels I thought I didn't have anything in that spectrum, turns out the spectrum is a tad wider than I thought. It looks like my beloved coral falls into it, so it gave me the opportunity to wear my new pleated skirt.


What I wore:
Top - Primark
Skirt - Primark
Shoes - Next via eBay
Umbrella - Paperchase

The skirt is one those try and see items from Primark, it's only a 16 but I just had to have it and luckily due to the jersey and elasticated waist band I can get away with it! It comes across a lot brighter than it actually is, but I guess the collar of the top is a bit pastel as well, so I think I met the challenge?


And yes, its absolutely tipping it down here, so probably not the most practical of outfits, I think if I popped a black vest top, black biker boots and my denim jacket it would be more weather appropriate and harden up the outfit somewhat.

Boooo, hiss to the rain!!

As always head on over to the other Five Take folk and check out how they handled pastels....

    1. I figured people we're getting bored of my house, so I try to get outside whenever I have Michael around to photograph! I will try and wander a bit further afield than the extension on the back of my house too!!
      Coral can be a bit harsh on fairer skin tones, especially bright coral x
