Don’t be fooled


Don’t be fooled by the pastel jeans which somehow make this scene appear warm.  It is not warm.  It is in fact mighty cold.  Don’t be alarmed, there was of course a coat.  But you’ve seen her before and, while I love her, sometimes less is more – for the purpose of photos anyway.

So how to style pastel for winter I pondered?  I shall introduce mint to the on trend colour of the season (by way of accessories) and that should bring mint down from her sun-filled, unicorn laden, candyfloss cloud.  The proof is before our eyes though and it seems, even in the face of (ox)blood, mint is chipper.

      I think I want to do a look now that’s purely mint and burgundy – see if that tames the pastel!

    Knowing from experience that you can have Four seasons in Scotland, i’m not surprised that you wanted to challenge the Sun !
    Love your heels and the lovely snake design in a rich burgundy colour !

      I think there’s one season which is dominant though… cold rain season ;(

    I love the snakeskin printed oxblood heels, a perfect mix of the two things I’ve been digging lately!
