Outfit/Adventures: Pastels & Picnics

Because of the bad weather we've been having recently I really didn't think we'd be doing what we did today - If I'm honest I thought that was it for Summer, all two weeks of it (typical Brit moan) but today we had a lovely day adventuring up to Roseberry Topping. 

I've been loving the pastel trend this Summer but this is the first knitwear item I've bought. I actually quite like this time of year, as much as I've whinged about our pitiful Summer, I love getting wrapped up in comfy cosy clothes, sitting down in front of the fire with a Galaxy Hot Chocolate. Mmmm, drooling just thinking about it! Anywho... I picked this sweater up in the New Look sale not too long ago while out shopping with my friend Hannah, she was holiday clothes shopping & I was picking up winter knits! When I'd got to the till the sales assistant said to me 'gosh you're pessimistic aren't you, it's the middle of August' but that's me all over, I hate being cold! Brrr! I've opted for a pair of simple black skinnies today too just because they show less dirt! Ha. I've got this awful habit of slipping or falling over when we go on walks so I make sure i plan ahead with dark trousers. Practically has to over rule fashion sometimes. I'd have loved to have worn a white midi skirt with this outfit but I really don't think it would have gone down well. 

If you're ever in the area, you should definitely venture up to Roseberry Topping, it's not actually that long of a walk and the views from the top are stunning.

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
