Pink Sorbet

I've been experimenting with clothes other than dresses recently.  I haven't always just worn dresses, in fact I used to wear a lot of skirts and tops.  I used to own almost as many skirts as I did dresses.  I guess that as I put weight on I found that dresses are just better at hiding it.  They are far more forgiving so I tried to hide my weight gain as best as I could.  Now that it is coming off (I can happily say that I am mostly a size 10 again now) I am again turning to cute little skirts and am mostly loving all the ice cream shades that are everywhere at the moment.  Teamed with a pair of black opaques of course, it's far too cold to even consider bare legs at the moment!


 Skirt: Topshop
Shirt: Matalan
Jumper: H&M

It's been so cold recently that I need the jumper for a bit of warmth... thought it was meant to be Spring now?!  I felt really girly in this candy pink outfit and the skirt got loads of compliments, such a nice shade.  Kudos to the lovely Gem for sharing this shirt with us all via her instagram snaps.  As soon as I saw it and found out that it was only £16 from Matalan I knew I needed to make it mine!

  3. Such a pretty look. I went through a big skirt stage in the winter, now I am back onto dresses- maybe I should reconsider ;)

    1. Guess it's good to mix it up, I definitely have more choice now although that's even worse for my bank balance!

  4. i love love love that blouse - i'm definitely looking to make it mine after the shopping ban is over!
    i have always favoured dresses as i've never liked the way skirts hang, and have always been funny about the length - and yet some of my dresses are shorter than the skirts which i'm 'iffy' about, so i don't know what that worry is based on!

    1. I've always avoided candy pinks due to their barbie nature but I just can't get enough of them right now!

  9. Love that skirt! I don't really have anything in pastels yet but I'm thinking about wearing that orange and cream dress you gave me with lots of cream and a beehive, kind of 60s :)

  16. How can you contrast the two pinks and get away with it? If I tried that I'd look beyond stupid! Love this jumper, skirt combo! A real innovative look! Black tights, always a sensible choice for this unpredictable weather and what you own about weight? There is nothing of you silly!
