Fashion | Pastel Knit

Last year I felt like I wore pastel colours every day during summer however this year for some reason I seem to have developed a more monochromatic (if that's a word) wardrobe. It was only yesterday when the weather turned a bit chillier that I pulled this pastel knit back out of my wardrobe... I'd probably forgotten about it otherwise.

Because of the colour, the sweater is a really transitional piece, it's bright enough to wear when it's sunny but cosy enough to wear when the weather starts to cool. I love transitional pieces like this, I know I'll get so much wear out of it, and I've definitely gotten my moneys worth already.
I've smartened up my look with a crisp white shirt & a pair of tan loafers. There's something about wearing loafers that make me feel all smart, sophisticated and ladylike. The only thing about these little buggers is that they squeek with every pace - So any tips on how I can get rid of this, please send them over. Squeeky shoes are literally the worst!

The older I'm getting the less & less I'm buying what you might call 'trendy' clothes. Clothes that last one season & that you'll never wear them again. I feel like I'm narrowing down & creating a capsule wardrobe with classic transitional pieces. What do you think of todays' look?

  1. Really lovely outfit and your hair looks gorgeous! If you don't already wear them, I'd suggest trying cotton shoe liners with flats; I wear them to protect my feet from getting sore, and they may help stop the squeaking! I got mine in-store at Next, but most places sell them. xxx - natural beauty, affordable fashion, everyday life

    1. Thanks Em. I love having shorter hair now, its so much more manageable!! 10 minutes on a morning now and it's done! Woop! Ah yeah, I'll look into that :-) It's so annoying. X

  2. Love the sweater, you should try walking in them first before getting em.

    1. Thank you :-) I did. I've had them for a couple of years now it's just the last six months or so they've started to squeek. Maybe they're telling me I need a new pair. X
