Candy Coloured Clown they call the Sandman

OK so this obsession with ice cream and pastel shades shows no signs of going anywhere.

Yes I know I look like a Battenberg but that's a good thing right?
Not sure what I was thinking in this one

This is what I wore on Saturday when, for once, the British weather decided to stick to its guns and produce and maintain a rather pleasant, warm sunny day.

Yay for Picnik!

Anyone here afraid of clowns?


Sorry I couldn't resist.  The resemblance is uncanny though don't you think? :)

Anyhoo, Saturday was perfect for a spot of shopping, not of the chazza variety for once.

 Some blouses and tops in the most pastel of pastel shades, mmm...

I also bought this lilac cardigan.  Lovely colour but a rather boring design.  I'm debating between the red hearts and the glittery star buttons to liven it up a bit.  What do you think?

I have some rather exciting Ebay purchases of the pastel variation on their way which I will of course be sharing when they arrive.

Anyone else obsessed with pastels?  I know I am late on the bandwagon. What are your inspirations?  Share with me! :)

    I awlays say I loathe pastels,but prove myself to be a liar quite frequently!There really isn't any colour or shade I don't like,I'm pretty sure!

  9. So pretty in pastels Miss Lucy. I really like the green skirt. Xx

  10. You do look like a daffodil but not that terrifying clown. I'm also obsessed with pastels - you saw those peach trousers! I think go with the stars - they already look good just places next too the cardi. Actually have you thought of sewing them in a cluster?

  13. Love the yellow cardi and nails! You look great.
    I vote for the red heart buttons on your cardi =)

  14. Ha...I was afraid of clowns for a time. I'll never forget, my mom hired a clown to come in and entertain for my 5th birthday and it has all my friends either screaming or crying:)

    Your outfit here is one of my favorites. Goodness, I just love a gal who can wear color and lots of it. You definitely gave me a good bit of inspiration here...I love your whole outfit and the beautiful color palette!
