Aw, well that was a nice little two days worth of Summer we just had, wasn’t it?? Yep, after a glorious weekend of 20 plus degrees last week we’re back to single figures again. Not the cheeriest of forecasts. I am NOT in the slightest bit thrilled about needing a coat again after just a fleeting reminder of what Spring is meant to feel like, dammit!
Luckily though, this pastel coloured beauty from Oasis, last seen in the bitter depths of Winter here, is helping to keep my spirits up with it’s pretty, blue hue. I don’t know what it is, but wearing lighter, brighter colours seem to really cheer up a grey day? Even though one of those colours is, er, well grey actually! But as much as I’m not a fan of grey skies, grey clothes are another thing altogether. Especially when they have polka dots!
I all seriousness, it’s a shade I’ve overlooked in the past, as on it’s own it isn’t the most exciting. But mixed into a pastel palette like this one? Just lovely. And it’s the perfect companion for pink, which can be a little too sugary on it’s own. And as for baby blue – well, is there even a colour more delightful I ask you? (oh wait… mint green….? Lilac….? Dammit, I just love all the pastels!!)
Still though, if that sunshine would come back I’d pack the coat away in a heartbeat. Sorry coat, you’re beautiful, but it’s true!
