Outfit Post: Spring Pastels For A Casual Look

Spring Pastels Outfit

We popped over to Saltaire last week as Boyfriend was playing a gig at the social club. It’s absolutely beautiful there with kooky shops and gorgeous brickwork on the houses, the perfect location for some Spring pastels. If I wasn’t such a city girl, I could totally see myself living there… maybe in a few years!

This beautiful lace dress is from H&M and although I’m usually irritated by their uneven sizing, it’s a great standard fit. I’m wearing a 14 due to it’s super short length, but I think I could have managed to zip up a 12. The pink colour is available in stores. I wanted more of a casual look for the evening so I dressed down with cute brogues, opaque tights and a slouchy cardigan, however I’m looking forward to wearing this with my mint green heels for a night out! Spring pastels are such a break away from what I’d normally wear, but I loved putting this together for something a bit different.

While Boyfriend was on tour last week we got a bit of taste of what it would be like if we both worked from home and I’ve got to say I got a little bit too used to having him around late morning and cooking nice dinners at lunch time. I loved staying up late working, which has always been my thing; I’m a total night owl so I get into my stride in the afternoon and could work until the early hours, another reason why being self employed is perfect for me. I hope someday we can make working from home a reality and adapt our lifestyles to the way we’d love to live.

Home: Rustic Bedroom Decor

I’ve got the Home Decor bug… While Boyfriend was away on tour last week I was staying up late watching DIY show repeats (as you do) and I am desperate to decorate! I’ve been adding to my Make A House A Home board on Pinterest with all my ideas to try and ease the pain and I would expect a few more home decor related ideas here on my blog too ;)

Thomas Sanderson asked* me to share some of their gorgeous window blinds with you guys and they are really beautiful. In our rented house we have these awful beige blinds that fall down every time you open them so seeing these fancy bay window shutters inspired a whole theme – you know you’re getting old when window blinds excite you! Haha.

If I were to buy a house I’d really want some gorgeous natural lighting flooding in every day. I can just imagine waking up and opening these majestic blinds while clutching a mug of tea… a little motivation to get out of bed every morning. I’d still want to keep my living room fun and dripping with pop culture references and band posters so I’d have much more rustic bedroom decor to relax in.

Remote Control Blinds

For hard to reach places Thomas Sanderson also have these remote controlled blinds. My Dad has an awesome skylight in his kitchen extension which I love (hello, natural light!) but I always think it would be an absolute nightmare on a bright day when the sun is glaring in. Some days I have to shut the blinds in my tiny office because it’s just too bright that my eyes hurt… so for the vampires amongst us these blinds seem like the perfect solution. Plus how cool would you feel, you can admit it! ;)
