Pastel Blues

Coat - Asos
Jumper - Topshop
Leggings - Topshop
Boots - Topshop
Bag - Jasper Conran

Another coat! And it fits me...amazing! I bought this on ASOS last spring, praying it would be flattering and when it arrived, it looked really good! The material is really thin, so it's definitely not a Winter coat, but it's good to pull on over a jumper or dress if it's not too cool outside. I really like the detail at the waist, it can be tightened to pull the material in at the sides, so if you want to add some curves to your frame, this coat can really help! I also love the gold zip detail, it means it can be a coat for smart occasions if you want it to be. Just don't wear it out in the rain like I did on my very first outing with it...

I love pastel colours at the moment and this is a great, pale blue jumper from Topshop -  take a look at it here - they still have plenty around! I really like the fit, it's not too tight - I hate tight jumpers - and it's great for casual wear. The only slightly annoying thing is that, because it's angora, it malts quite badly when you wear it with certain materials...I made the mistake of wearing it with velvet leggings in this post and within a matter minutes, I had fluff all over the place...hopefully you can't see it too much in the photos! So, perhaps best to wear with non-velvet or fleecy material that will attract fluff...note to self. I do love the colour though and really want one in white...we shall see.

The bag is an old Jasper Conran favourite from one of my sale triumphs! I got it from Debenhams in the sale about two years ago and it was knocked down an insane amount from the original price. It's a really pretty bag and nice and spacious, so you can chuck whatever you like in there. It's got a bit worn over the years (I took it everywhere at one stage) but that's it's only fault now - I still love it! I think Jasper Conran will always be at the top of my list when it comes to bags...it's a serious shame most of them are so horribly out of my price range! Sob.
