Pastels in the Garden

My almost 8 year old told me my photos are a bit boring so I challenged him to make today's pictures more interesting. So here is today's blog as directed by schoolgatestyle junior!
Long Shirt - Primark
Skinny Jeans - H&M
Black Ballet Pumps - Clarks

Can you tell how cold I am?! It didn't feel as spring-like as it looked!
Today's long pale pink shirt a good example of what you can find when you keep your eyes peeled in Primark. The cotton is heavier with a stretch - really nice quality with a fine pastel stripe.

Long shirts are great for this in-between weather as they are lighter than jumpers and cover your bottom! They can be layered nicely with cardigans over and long vests under. Not that easy to come across but here are a couple available online...
Very Linen Mix Tunic Shirt - £22
Redoute Poplin Cotton Tunic Shirt £15
Back to more sedate photos tomorrow...I'm too old for this galavanting about the garden and the neighbours are starting to give me funny looks :)
