I was reading the Laura Craik article this weekend in the Sunday Times Magazine about wearing pastel colours. As you can see below she is pictured wearing a very pretty (very light) outfit.
The point about this is that she said anyone who can wear an outfit like this, ‘never forgot to hand in the form for her child’s Christmas card and end up begging Prontaprint to do a rush job for six times the cost’!
Well my first thought was ‘thank god it’s not just me!’ second thought was, are pastels still off the list despite the fact that my children are no longer toddlers?
Question was answered about 30 seconds later when as part of my Summer (trying to look acceptable in a bikini) exercise regime I dressed up in a white (yes white) skirt and top. After all it is supposed to be Summer today. I sat down to eat a very delicious, juicy Mango and immediately spilt the entire thing onto my lap. My skirt now has a very orange blob on it and because I have given up, I have not washed it off, I have just decided that the skirt will have to become multicoloured and am planning beetroot for lunch!
