Fashion // Adding Pastels Into Your Spring/Summer Wardrobe

As we have hit the 1st May; yes how are we almost half way through 2017 already?! (I am sure I say this every time we enter a new month). We are so close to officially entering Summer and yet most of us who live in Britain are not exactly basking in any glorious sunshine and heatwaves, we are still wrapping up nice and warm in out winter knits and ankle boots which is slightly depressing to say the least.

But I thought it was about time that I added a few more, or should I say just adding pretty pastel shades into my wardrobe to actually make me feel like we are entering the summer months. As you will all be very well aware that my style is pretty much monochrome with the odd pattern thrown in on a rare occasion, pastel shades are something that I struggle with.

Having a pale skin tone makes it quite difficult to style pastel shades, they make me look washed out and quite frankly very ill so I steer clear of them. There are other ways to add them into my style and that is through accessories - plus it doesn't make me feel like I am trying too hard or being mutton dressed as lamb (well I hope not anyway).

This gorgeous blue rucksack from Topshop perfectly adds that pop of colour to this outfit, it brings out the blue speckles in my top. It wouldn't be something that I thought of going out and buying for myself but my boyfriend obviously knows me better than I know myself and he bought me it for my birthday and I am in love it is stunning!!
