Iris from Feminine Modesty set a challenge a few days ago to wear more cheerful outfits in pastel shades during these cold dark winter days. My wardrobe is not varied enough to take part in many blog challenges even though I often want to - but this time I will give it a go!
The jumper is for once purchased new. It is salmon pink so I think it will qualify as a pastel shade. I bought it in New Look. The trousers are in cotton and are pale brown. I bought them last summer for wearing on holiday. Under the jumper is a long white shirt which (almost) covers those areas which I prefer out of sight when wearing trousers in public to maintain my standards of modesty.
Iris is right - it does lift your mood when wearing brighter colours rather than the usual winter outfits dominated by black.
