Outfit Post // Spring Shades

So before the smog descended this week we did get a day (even if it was only the one) of fairly nice weather up in Huddersfield, and as that is a rarity, I decided to make a change and take some outfit photos outside in my garden! At the moment the flowers are all blooming for spring, so I thought what better way to compliment my Pastel inspired outfit than with a super pretty background...

Jacket // SheInside     Top // New Look (last season)     Jeans // New Look (similar here)     Bag // Accessorize 

Necklace // Primark

I ordered this gorgeous coat from SheInside quite a while ago, and was so impressed as I managed to pay just over £20 for it! While I did have to wait quite a while for delivery, I couldn't complain because it was free. I felt like this coat was a good investment as it will definitely be perfect for taking me from spring to summer, on those colder days when I need a bit of a cover-up to stay warm. The mint green pastel shade is everywhere right now, and as I haven't been a huge fan of the popular Pink coat that a lot people have been wearing, this felt like the perfect way for me to take on the pastel trend! 

I bought this lace collared shirt from New Look over a year ago now, and I've certainly had my wear out of it. It lasted me all last summer as well as being perfect for this season- the white lace and pleated pattern is perfect for adding a bit of femininity to any outfit, I can wear it with a pretty skirt or my leather jacket, it's just so versatile. 

To toughen the outfit up a little bit and keep it up to date I wore these D.I.Y ripped jeans. I bought the original un-ripped pair from New Look a couple of years ago, and while I have to say I've never been very crafty or good at D.I.Y, after seeing a couple of other bloggers re-vitalise and rip their jeans themselves, I thought to myself, I've got to give that a go, how hard can it actually be?! Well I have to say it was harder than anticipated, and I didn't do a very good job, but oh well there was no harm in trying! Plus I will still get plenty of wear out of them,  because I wear all my jeans to absolute death!

For accessories I chose my trusty Accessorize bag, and a really pretty necklace I bought from Primark recently. For just £3 I couldn't say no, and the pastel coloured roses are lovely for a staple accessory that brings a touch of spring to plenty of outfit combos.

Are you loving pastel pieces for Spring? What items are you wearing to take on the trend...?x
