The Brit Pack Presents: the Pastel Parade

This month us Ladies of the Brit Pack are uniting and showing off a parade of Pastels!
When i first put this out to the girls as this months theme i kinda shot myself in the foot. You see until recently i was really not a pastel type girl. I was ALL about the brights and felt pastels to be wishy washy compared to the strong colours that dominated my wardrobe. Then the more pastels i saw the more i liked, their subtly sugary tones are sweet and pretty. Problem is with the #100spendingban still in full swing i couldn't exactly run out and purchase some pastel products. Nope i had to make do. But thankfully making do meant wearing this baby blue beautiful long-line cardigan that i recently received from Front Row Shop. I have been wearing it pretty much non stop on my day off/jeans days. Its perfect in this spring weather we've been having.

I also couldn't wait to where my patch jeans again, they have become a firm favourite since they first graced my legs only to be removed for washing and then safely back on again. 
I have to say i am really excited about adding some more pastels to my wardrobe in 28 days time (!!)
