EBEW: Preppy Pastels

Hello lovelies.. is the week treating you well so far?

This month Everybody Everywhere chose PASTELS. When pastels first came out in abundance this spring i was not keen. I'm more a brights kinda gal. colour blocking, floral brights. But as the months have gone on pretty hues of pastel pinks and mints and soft blues have grown on me. I kinda like them. Its a step outside of my normal "go to" outfits also so that was quite refreshing!




Coral Jeans and Mint Jumper: Tesco
Shirt: Next
Mint Bag: Modcloth
Pumps: ShoeZone

My regular photographer (hubby) seems to have come down with what Neo has (needless to say my house is FUN at the mo ;) So my lovely mum snapped these quickly for me just before i popped to the pharmacy to pick up some much need medicine for the poorly boys.

Anyway, what do you think of pastels? Are you a fan?
And it looks like my rut may have passed!! not blue, red or white in sight!

Take Care all
Here's a plethora of pastel pretties for you to view!

Ps thank you all as always, for your lovely comments. Neo is a bit better today and seems to be finally on the mend. And also thank you for your lovely words about my blue/red/white issues. You guys are the best!

  3. Oh Rachel these colours look fabulous on you - can't believe the sweater's from Tesco!!

    But... the lovely colour makes me mourn my new mint chinos (sob story coming up): bought a new pair from M&S on Fridy, wore them for the first time yesterday, then dropped and smashed a whole bottle of orange nail polish... Trousers ruined
    :((((( My size isn't available online or in my local store any more, I'm so upset - I had to tell someone (and am looking for sympathy)!!!!!

    You look adorable as always lovely Rachel - if I ever manage to get another pair I'll pair them with coral like you for sure <3

  15. rachel, you look so pretty in pastels :) it's great that you broke out of your red, white, and blue rut (though i didn't have a problem with it while you were rocking it). these colors, however, are much more spring-y. has the weather there caught up with your outfit yet?

    Also LOVE your blog and am following you now!
