Style Saturday: Pastels

Nothing says Spring to me quite the way that pastel colours do. They are pretty, light and add a gorgeous pop of colour coming out of drab palette of winter and make everything feel more fresh and light. I prefer to have a little tan on my skin when I first reach for these shades (mostly from a bottle or make-up), as I feel like they have a slight tendency to wash skin out a little, but once the sun hits for real this season then it’ll be difficult to get me out of these hues. Here are a few picks of things that have caught my eye over the past couple weeks.

St Patricks Day Fashion Picks

Not that we need much of an excuse to wear a lovely shade of green, but St. Patrick’s Day is less than a week away, so we thought it would be good to show you how you can incorporate a bit of festive spirit into your wardrobe, with items that you can still wear all year around. I adore all of these pieces, and really think I don’t own enough items in these wonderful shades, maybe I should take my own advice and pick up some of these things!

Oscars 2014 Fashion Favourites

We all love taking a look at the fashion choices of our favourite stars the day after Oscar night. We’ve all got opinions on who did it right and who got it so wrong, so I thought I’d wade in with my own picks. Obviously, I wouldn’t say who I thought looked anything less than stunning, as I think it’s more fun to single out my favourite looks of the evening, so here are my 9 picks of who I personally think looked beautiful and whose gowns were perfection. There seemed to be a lot of neutral and cream shades going on, which means they could also make great wedding dress inspiration, if you’re currently shopping for your special gown.

Lauren Conrads Kohls Collection

Lauren Conrad is one lady whose wardrobe I would absolutely adore to own – she always looks so chic and well put together, while still looking young and not overly polished – so I always look forward to seeing her latest collection for Kohl’s. They are amazingly affordable pieces that are genuinely gorgeous, and are items that would suit most women, unlike the more high-end brands, who seem to only make clothes for less than 1% of the general population. And I just love seeing Spring coming into the stores, it makes me dream of sunny days! Here are a few of my favourite looks from Lauren’s February collection.

Fashion Picks: Awards Season Part One

Awards season 2014 is well under way and we’ve already had such a beautiful selection of outfits on show so far. From the Golden Globe Awards to the Screen Actors Guild Awards, I’ve loved looking through the galleries of photos the morning after an event, and I’m sure it’s an absolute dream to be able to dress up for the red carpet in such stunning fashion. Here are just a few of my favourites so far as, of course, there are still plenty more awards shows to go, starting with the Grammy’s tonight. I’ll be back once the Oscars are over to pick out some more of my favourites.
