Spring Summer '14 Trend Part 1- Pastels

Pastel colours are the essence of understated elegance. Baby pink, lavender, minty green and powder blue are essential colours for your S/S'14. These colours are usually associated with spring so are perfect to start the year off, and ooze luxury. The soothing colours are replacing your lil black dress, so don't shy away from the pale colours this season. The soft colours soften heavy fabrics and make most outfits very feminine.

Darker colours can be used to hide your problem areas and use the pastels to enhance your favourite body parts. Like if you have cracking long legs try a pair of pastel jeans or fitted trousers.

The key to pastels is to get the right colour.... Pairing up with a charcoal grey, light camel or a crisp white like Aleshia Dixon can work beautifully. Or why not try teaming your pastel piece with burgendy, dark moss green or black like Allison Williams.

This is a great outfit, teaming up these amazing yellow trousers with the powder blue jumper is a fabulous colour combination. And the winter white shoes and shirt collar are key accessories.

Invest in camel or peach, both of these are super sophisticated colours and are essential in your SS wardrobe. Camel goes with everything and looks great no matter what your skin tones. And try wearing you peach with a red lippy.

If you have pale features, have no fear.... Don't run and hide when it comes to pastels. Although most people feel that the pastels tend to make them appear chalky or washed out. But this problem can be solved very easily, keep away from turtlenecks, go for camisoles, stick with satin and if needs be, wear you pastel colours on your bottom half to keep away from your face.

Coloured pastel hue wedding dresses are all the rage these days... And like Kaley Cuoco rocked her baby pink wedding dress a few weeks ago. She look at ease in this super dress. It works so well with her skin tone. And her accessories are elegant and understated, with just a string of pearls and of course her wedding ring.

A dress made from thin fabric, like Mila Kunis' above, is perfect for those special occasions and is breathable for those hot days we are hoping to come this Summer.

This blog post will be part one of a series of blogposts in which I will cover this season's must have trends.

So hope you enjoyed, and stay tuned for the next in series.

New Year... New Hairstyle

Long bobs or lobs as they are known are kicking ass and taking names. And with all these celebrities rocking this look, it is bound to be the latest trend.

Ciara has hers lightened at the tips and has the front with a slight wave for body.

Alexa Chung has her just woke up hair and of course the lob can be worn with bangs also.

Sleeked back lobs- oooh la la!!

Rose Byrne is my ultimate hair envy! She has an effortless style about her and her hair always looks stunning! Recently, I got my hair cut, I used a picture of Rose as my inspiration for my hairdresser.

Aaaaah the 'Rachel' haircut, almost! Although this 'Rachel' is longer and sleeker in look Jennifer can still pull it off.

Olivia Palmero is another hair inspo of mine!! She always knows how to style her hair to look classy and chic.

And the most recent to join the lob team, ms Kylie Jenner... Her's may just be my favourite. It's edgy and has a slight air of punk rocker about it. She looks amazing! And it really suits her face shape. She shows you that even if you have thick hair, like myself, you can still wear a long bob and look fabulous.

Here's a quick pic of me ( on the right) and my Cousin and fello blogger Meghan Jones from MeghanMode, see link below.... We had a night out for the new year. This pic shows my lob. I was so nervous cutting my long hair short but I love it. It cuts your styling time in half and it's so easy to style, from sleek straight to messy bed head- this hairstyle is the way forward.

Enjoy Chicks,

Midi Skirts

Okie chickies... This post has a lot of pictures but I just couldn't help myself!

Midi skirts are all the rage nowadays. They are selling out of shops all over the country fast. I've recently been trying to buy one from Topshop, which is a ballerina pink midi skirt. I am in love with it and its sold out everywhere!

Most of my friends know I would prefer to wear a midi dress or skirt over minis. I feel in love with midi dresses and the same has happened me with midi skirts! I have plenty of pencil skirts but these new flared prom midi's are gorgeous.

They are so feminine and classy that no matter what you wear it with, you look and feel a million bucks!

I would normally not have thought of pairing these skirts with anything other then heels but these look super cute with these trainers.

I'm in love with this mix-matched tartan look, stunning and a really simple idea for a chic new look.

Very Carrie Bradshaw-esque look

More mix match patterns.

Why not try some bold colours to make a real fashion statment.

Jessica Alba as always banging the nail on the head with this look. Try wearing these midi skirts with a cute wooly jumper for cooler days.

Ooooooh the Topshop ballerina skirt, i am in loooooove! I would love to pair this with a cute t-shirt, a pair of heeled boots and a leather jacket! I'm so investing in this!


This look out of all the celebrity looks I found. The peplum pencil skirt just looks amazing with this funky owl jumper, a perfect combination!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I've been super busy with work. Got myself a job in River Island so I was super busy over the christmas time, but I'm baaaaack!!! Hope to have another post for you lovely peeps in the next two or three days on Peter Pilotto.
