Just for YOU — 22 February 2012

Dare I say it but yesterday I was actually – shock – horror – a bit warm. Yes, I believe my cheeks may have gone from ghostly to a hint of rose. If Spring has sprung it means its time to start thinking of shedding a few layers of clothing and adding some colour and all without too big a dent in the bank balance.

Lip-smacking ice-cream shades from Dorothy Perkins
This Spring there are lots of pastel colours around and they are very pretty and perky indeed. Think ice-cream shades, 1950s style Capri pants and the kind of coloured jeans you will wear once before someone small spills something mucky down them and they need to go in the wash. Ok, stop thinking about ice-cream and Vanish now and think about the serious business of money.

Dorothy Perkins have been tweeting their little bob-socks off about how they’re offering 25% off EVERYTHING this week so what I’ve done is picked out all the lovely pastels in their collection and put them here for you. You can thank me later.

  1. I do worry about pastels highlighting my spare tyre more than darker colours but I do like them. Maybe I could start with the scarf and sunglasses until I’m feeling braver.

    • I have a spare tyre too. There’s this shape called a Peplum which is supposed to be a great tummy disguiser and trendy too. I might try one and write about it. I’ll let you know. But like you said, accessories will work a treat. xx
