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!

    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

    I really love the jumper and jeans, perfect spring dressing in still slightly wintery weather!

    Think the look is completed by the glasses!

    Love this outfit on you!
    My mum just gifted me a lilac plaid blouse, but it is short sleeved. I have no idea how to wear it!

    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?

    Love this look – I'm not a pastel girl either so I appreciate your minty sweater paired with your bright pants.

    Also LOVE your blog and am following you now!
