Pretty Pastel Shopping Haul – SS14

I’m totally loving the spring/summer ’14 pastel trend that has been showcased by many designers this year. As my wardrobe needs brightening up ready for summer I thought it was only right that I followed suit! I’ve been shopping online and on the high street, searching for pretty pastel tones such as candy pinks, mint greens, baby blues and sorbet lemons. I also ended up buying quite a few ivory items because I think they’ll look great teamed up with pastels on a hot summery day. There’s too much to feature all in one post but here’s some of my favourite pieces that I’ve found so far:
3 Tara Dip Hem Slouchy Knit Jumpers

Tara Dip Hem Slouchy Knit Jumper - - £15.00 2

Tara Dip Hem Slouchy Knit Jumpers – Aqua, Pink & Mint – – £15.00 – Link
I’ve fallen in love with these textured, slouchy fit jumpers, mainly because of the colours! I’m a real girly girl, so as you can probably imagine I really like the colour pink. Once I had one of these I ended up buying more in every colour. Am I the only one that does this?
2 Primark Cardigans

Cardigans – Mint & Pink – Primark – £6.00

I always have loads of cardigans in my wardrobe because I find them great for layering up. As anyone that lives in the UK knows, we can never predict what our weather will be like from one minute to the next, even when it’s meant to be summer! In the winter I have loads of long, chunky knit type cardigans, and then as we head into spring I swap them all for thinner, shorter versions. Great for wearing over cami tops.

Jeans 2
Katie Baby Blush Boyfriend Jeans - - £20.00 2 

Katie Baby Blush Boyfriend Jeans – – £20.00 – Link

These were too cute to resist, and as shown above I will be wearing them with high heels to give a slightly dressier look. They’re quite a baggy style for me, as I’m used to wearing skinny jeans or leggings, but I’m going to embrace the ‘boyfriend’ look.

Lana Jeans

Light Wash Lana Superskinny Jeans – River Island – £25.00 – Link

Skinny jeans are a staple in my wardrobe, and although these are not pastel coloured I’ll be wearing my pastel jumpers with them, so I thought it was only right that I included them in this haul. Another item that I wouldn’t mind one in each colour!
Office Heels
Ankle Strap High Heels – Office (TK Maxx) – £19.99
Nail Polish – Barry M Silk Nails – £3.99 each – Link
I found these heels by Office in TK Maxx recently and thought they would be great with my new jeans as previously shown in my pictures above. I’ve been looking for some exactly the same in white but I’ve not been lucky enough to find any yet.

Primark Bag - £9.00 1

 Primark Bag - £9.00 2

Bag – Primark – £9.00

Lastly is this bag which I’m chuffed to bits with and I think it will go well with any of my pastel outfits. It has a zip compartment inside, followed by a much smaller pocket with a zip and two open pockets and it’s really well made. I didn’t really need another bag but can a girl actually have too many? I think not!

What do you think of the SS14 pastel trend? Do you love it as much as me? If you’ve recently posted a haul please leave your links in the comments box below as I love to read these type of posts.

  • Those boyfriend jeans look great on you! Especially with the heels. I love the pastel jumpers too, my favourite is definitely the mint green. You're not the only one who buys multiples in different colours, I love Primark for cardigans and I swear I have three of the same one in different colours somewhere..

    • Me too Georgina! Xx

  • I love those pastel jumpers! I really want to order them all now but everytime I've ordered from Boohoo the quality has never been great and the sizes are always way too big or too small :-(. I'm a size 6/8 and would probably prefer these to fit as a 10 cause I love loose slouchy jumpers. Would a size S/M be best for that or M/L cause although I like jumpers baggy I don't want it to drown me if that makes sense hehe xxx

    • Hi Abby. The quality of these jumpers is quite good I would say, so no worries there. I'm a size 10 and my jumpers are all size S/M. They are fairly baggy on me so for a size 6/8 I would say get a S/M too, as that's the smallest size they do. Are you following me on Instagram? I can upload a pic of me wearing one there if you like? Xxx

  • What a great collection! Those shoes are to die, and those jumpers- gorgeous! Love it!
