Pastels... MY Way

So pastels. All the rage for the coming spring. Unfortunately the make me look as though I'm about to be sick...

However, a recent detour wander into Topshop has left me with new hope for pastels... Meet my new precious...


Pastel Spike Ring, £8.50, Topshop


Safe to say that T is devastated by yet another lethal weapon  chunky ring with sharp bits, I on the other am in love!



From Thumb round:
OPI- shade unknown
Models Own- BlooBloo
Mavala- Elle Grey
Topshop- Gone Fishing
Models Own- Juicy Jules


C'mon folks, tell me I'm not the only one MASSIVELY struggling with this whole girl/female/pastels thing?

I'm also very un-enamoured by the pastel trend! I prefer my outfits either darker, or bolder. I do like it for nail polish though, and recently picked up a selection of pastel ones in Primark, one is a mint green like the Topshop one and I love it! x

I love pastels and I also LOVE that ring! xx

I'm with you on this, pastels drain all the colour out of me and make me look awful. I am willing to try wee bits and pieces here and there though, and think accessories are the way to go. Maybe some pastel coloured shoes when it ever stops raining? And nail polish of course - that Topshop one is lovely x

I don't like pastels either! They make me look washed out, darker colours suit my pale skin better. That being said I do really like your ring and those nails! :) x

That ring is AMAZING

Pastels is one of those things I really WANT to like and WANT to work, but it just leaves me a bit ... lost.

That is one funky ring! I'm not a big pastels fan, don't often go with my rocky look!

Chloe said...

I'm loving the mint green too, wish our local Primark stocked nail polish, that would so be my answer to constant colour boredom....

Chloe said...

Thanks I'm a bit in love with my ring too. 

Chloe said...

I'm definitely a fan of richer colours, and although I'm not pale so much as mildly olive skinned, pastels really wash me out too, but the nails and ring are far away from enough skin to stop that. 

Chloe said...

Thank you, it's my new baby!

Chloe said...

This, and shoes are the only way I think it's going to work for me. 

Chloe said...

Thanks. I think pastels can work with a harder look, adding a bit of fun or unexpected elements, but they're a bit alien if you're not used to them.

I like pastels but they will never replace jewel colours as my one true love!

Love that ring, it's crazy! Thanks for the good luck wishes, I'm really looking forward to blogging from there. I'm sure I will have lots to share be it food or culture! Hopefully I will be able to get myself a laptop out there at some point because the thought of blogging via my phone for the entire duration is a bit of a pain to be honest :)

Chloe said...

I love jewel colours too, and I have a love of grey tones mixed with neutrals too. I'm hoping the pastels will be a flash in the pan!

Chloe said...

Thanks. Have THE best time Winnie, really hope to see plenty of HK and your adventures. Have a safe trip.
