Pixie Stick...

Jacket: H&M
Shirt: Paris
Bag: Milan
Trousers: H&M
Shoes: Ebay

I don't think I know a single person who has not absolutely fallen in love with this seasons colour palette.
With so many different shades, tones and takes on the trend, 3.1 Philip Lim, Chanel and Louis Vuitton captured our imaginations, setting the tone for Spring... the sweeter, the better.
I just managed to beat the recent freak snow storm in an out and out 'sweet shop' inspired outfit.
Re-living my childhood as a playful vagabond- I was the kind of child who would play outside and make perfum out of flower petals- these colours remind me of the Pixie Stick sherbet tubes you used to get when you were younger (back in the days when you could actually buy single penny sweets) the jacket and trousers are wonderfully soft and slide off the body in the same way the sugary treats would run down your throat as you threw your head back, trying to get the remains from the bottom.

*At this point I must say that getting out paint stains from said garments isn't as hard as one would think- I fell foul to splatters of paint whilst styling a photo shoot in this outfit- not the brightest thing I have ever done but it was worth it, this is a passion project that I am so excited to show you!!!*

This shirt I got in Paris, it's a dreamy pale blue with a minty under-tone and fits like it was made just for me, did I mention that I found it in a little vintage shop just off Madeleine lane...coincidence? I think not.
