Pastel Pencil Skirt & Scalloped Lace

Blouse: H&M Pencil Skirt: H&M Socks: Topshop Shoes: H&M 

And Sunday breakfast at the Diner;
Hello everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! 
This outfit is a bit unusual for me, as i've never really worn many colours, i'm always a bit wary of them, not knowing which colours go with which ones best, etc. But I really love all of the pastel colours coming out this Spring, particularly the mint colour, so I fell in love with this skirt straight away when I saw it! I really want to try to be a bit more adventurous with what I wear, all of my clothes tend to be navy, camel or black, ha! I bought the skirt and blouse (which is lace and has scalloped edges!) in Cambridge on Saturday when I visited with Alessio, it was my first visit and I can't wait to go back in the Summer to properly explore, it's such a beautiful town. On Sunday morning, we had breakfast in our local American Diner, which I stayed at over the summer . Does anyone else have a weakness for pancakes and maple syrup? I think I could happily eat them every morning! I really love American Diner's, I'd love my kitchen when i'm older to be in a similar style, with the plastic-y green booths and metal tables! Do you have any American Diner's near you? I'm on the hunt for more!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.

  4. erm, HELLO BEAUTIFUL. you look amazing in this, absolutely beautiful. i feel the same about colour, i find it such an intimidating concept and i put off buying things in colour purely because i feel like i'm spending money on something to wear a little sparingly. hm!

    those pancakes look so good, i really must buy some gluten-free flour so i can make some for myself. the bacon/syrup combination is bizarre but so delicious.


  5. I love your outfit, especially your top :D It's a stunning colour :)
    Really love your new hair cut too, that fringe suits you so much!
