I will admit, when we agreed that the theme for this month's Brit Pack would be pastels, I did panic. Thanks to my ghostly complexion I don't wear them that often (only a handful of times over the past 4 and a half years!) I was struggling to think of an outfit that fitted the pastel criteria when I remembered this 'Easter egg' dress which I have had for years. I love the pale yellow colour and it is perfect for the beginning of Spring, especially now the sun is out on a regular basis!

Although the colour is potentially a bit too twee (even for me!) bright lipstick and an open back help to add a bit of an edge. I have never actually worn this out of the house without a camisole or slip dress underneath it as the open back goes all the way down to the waist and I;m not quite brave enough to wear it out of the house! ;) I always seem to pair pastels with this gorgeous coral lipstick, it is just the perfect spring-like colour!
I normally end up pairing grey or red with this dress to make the pastels more wearable but as soon as I remembered my orange shoes, I was sold. The orange colour looks fab with the lemon yellow and these heels are just so darned comfy that I would wear them with everything if I could! You can see how pale the dress is here
along with my pasty limbs, the orange looks almost neon in comparison!
How do you wear pastels?
