Pastels | Everybody, Everywear

Hi everybody, my name's Bethan and I'm a pleather-skirt-aholic.

This skirt's been present in three out of four of my last outfit posts. I do have more than one skirt in my wardrobe. Promise. One day, if you're lucky, I might even show them to you.

I spent the night at my friend Lucy's for a Come Dine with Me evening and I ate an insane amount.  Forget food baby, I'm talking food twins. But it was hard not to when the food was so delicious. We ate bruschetta with goats cheese for starters, chicken curry and rice for main and lemon tart and chocolate brownies for desert (did you read that in the Come Dine with Me voiceover guy's voice?)

The dress code was dressy (just an excuse for us to dress up and wear heels really) but being 5'9" I don't really need to wear heels so I stuck to my trusty two-tone brogues. I also tried to curl my hair with curling sticks but by the end of the night (and by the time I took these photos) all the curls had fallen out. I bought this top in the January sales for a pound, okay fair enough it's a size 16 and a tad on the big side but it's perfect for tucking into skirts and shorts. This is my first pastel look of 2012, may there be many more!
