I've become a bit obsessed with the colour pink recently! Slightly uncharacteristic really, as I don't wear much pink at all, but suddenly I keep finding my eyes going to straight to the pink items and I can't get over how pretty the pale pink shade can be! I think it's all to do with my pastel colours obsession, pale greens and blues, and pinks of course, it started of with me constantly painting my nails various shades of pale and now it seems to be transpiring into clothes! People have told me for years to stop wearing so much black, so perhaps finally  (albeit slowly) I'm starting to take their advice! I love this pink jacket from Oasis, but perhaps it's a bit too summery? Though I think it's perfect for this transition stage between summer and autumn...but chances are the sleeves would be too long for my little frame and I might look like I'm entering into a pink-tent competition. All I can say is, I've got my eye on it, so if I find myself in Oasis on Saturday morning, who knows!!

 I love the pink Topshop jeans also (I've actually bought them) and they will be featuring in my next outfit post. I'm afraid this has meant breaking one of my classic rules - which is, never wear pale colours on the legs - I've always gone with this because, being Petite, pale colours always seemed to make my legs look larger, where darker colours slimmed them down. But these Leigh jeans don't do this at all, they are so comfy and slim fit that actually, with heels, my legs almost look long! So, obviously, all I really need now is every other accessory in this collection (I threw in the bright pink heels just because they are so gorgeous) - I have a birthday coming up so maybe, if anyone asks me what I want, I'll just say I want something pink!

  1. I am totally obsessed with pink at the moment just the same as you! I seem to be drawn to the colour in every shop after usually just sticking to black and cream. I really love the pink jeans, am looking forward to seeing your outfit post on them as I too worry about lighter shades making my legs look larger - but i'm sure they will look awesome! :)

    1. My pink obsession is getting worse, I've bought so many pink jumpers lately!! Thank you though sweetie, the pale pink jeans are too nice not to wear, not as flattering as darker colours...but at leas they are pretty :-) xxx
