From The Archive: 2012

A year of fewer questionable outfit choices, I finally found my blogging groove in 2012, and here you can find some favourite pieces, band interviews as they first appeared and a lot of hats too...

When the lovely ladies at Style Compare contacted me asking if I’d be up for styling a pair of pastel jeans for their new styling challenge on their blog, Style Platform, I couldn’t want to get stuck in! With pastels being one of my favourite (and one of the most wearable) trends for this spring/summer and jeans being my ultimate go to (as you probably know…) I was keen to have a rummage in my wardrobe.

With the last time I’d worn jeans this bright being when I was about 14 and channelling the Klaxons ‘Nu Rave look’ I was determined not to revisit that ‘style’ phase in my life and make them look a little more ladylike and dare I say ‘trendy’. In the end I went with the full blown sorbet candy-esque look. An outfit certainly fit for the sunny weather (apparently the cloudier it is the brighter your clothes look), I chose a crisp collared peplum top and my new 80’s style peach jacket with my Topshop chunky heels- for a more ‘grown up’ (and tall) edge. I can’t wait to play around with these jeans and style them with oversized t shirts, chunky necklaces and mannish brogues to trial all the ways they can be worn!

Additionally, there’s also a vote currently for your favourite look on the blog, so you can vote for your favourite to win an awesome voucher (and for their readers!)- I’d really appreciate it if you could head over and click the button here, or alternatively vote for one of the other gorgeous girls- everyone looked amazing!

How would you style pastel jeans?
