Let's just take a minute to appreciate the absolutely phenomenal weather that Britain has been graced with of late... I mean it's just divine isn't it? Improving the mood of everyone I've come into contact with since the sun started shining, and that is A-Okay with me, even if it is seriously hard to find the motivation to stay in and slave away at the laptop whilst the Mancunian sun shines down through my windows.

With the sudden arrival of warmth, and the panic of it undoubtedly not lasting longer than these past five days, I threw on my most cliched of summer looks. Yep, you guessed it pastels, how original ey!? But seriously, how original, especially when our most loved summer colour palette is combined with this seasons must-have fabrications and detailing.

Take this lilac top for example, completely covered in ruffles and therefore the "IT" blouse of the season, if it ain't ruffled we ain't having it (current life moto, or something like that)
And don't even get me started on the humble blue jean. Throw in some seriously exxagerated raw edges and your jeans have gone from basic to bloomin' marvellous in one fell swoop. And to update last summer's we-over-did-it mules think muted blush tones and not-quite-pastel, pastels to keep our favourite footwear relevant.
