Fondant Fancies

You know that scene in The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda Priestly pipes up with “Florals for spring. Groundbreaking.” – I always feel a little like this with pastels. However, there’s definitely a reason why fondant shades pop out of the wardrobe and into the streets when the sun starts the shine. The light, sugary shades always look light and airy when the warmer weather arrives, plus their ability to make almost any outfit look feminine is an instant win with me. 
Here’s my rundown of how I’d love to wear these fondant fancy shades this season:

Whistles have got an amazing selection of key wardrobe items this season, including this beautiful dress. I think it is so versatile, it could easily be teamed with bold and bright accessories but I’ve decided to go simple with some simple heels and a colour contrast clutch.

I absolutely love how chic printed trousers look with simple barely-there sandals! This look draws on some great basics, and although features printed trousers, isn’t too in-your-face. I’ve teamed it with a subtle pop of pastel pink with the beautiful Wildfox sweat.

Whistles White Croc Effect Clutch, £60 – here
Asos Hoxton Heeled Sandals, £42 – here

I love the lightness of the skirt to say it has a leather look. It has a great pastel tone, which goes so nicely with the minty jumper. I decided to team this with a textured clutch and black courts with transparent panels to give the outfit more edge.
