Anyone who has looked at a magazine or clothing website recently will know that pastels are big news for Spring but with the recent snow falls, summery colours and outfits were about as far from my mind as physically possible. That all changed though when I found a gorgeous pale blue cashmere jumper in my local charity shop for a measly £2.95. I love how soft and snuggly it is and it provided the perfect extra layer in the chilly weather...

Unfortunately, I think this is one of those outfits that is doomed to photograph really badly but in real life I loved it! The mix of the cashmere and the jacket made me feel quite grown up and I wasn't sure if it was too 'old' for me but I thought the colours kept it fun, what do you think?

With the boxy shape and the tweed like fabric I couldn't help but be inspired by classic Chanel (pretty sure I can get sued for saying this!) and layered up my pearls! I was reminded of this jacket after browsing the Topshop sale and finding this gem by Sister Jane...isn't it gorgeous?!
I thought the grey accessories would help to toughen up the outfit a bit and also give me some much needed height! These shoeboots are so comfortable and I love how soft the suede is...
How would you make pastels winter appropriate? Do you think the outfit is too 'old' for me?
