There are those occasional times, when out on the look out for places to shoot outfit photos, where you come across something quite surreal looking and picturesque. In fact that's exactly what happened when we went for a Easter walk over the weekend. Nestled behind the wooded trees and forest scenery, we came across hundreds of bluebells- which seemed to be endless. Despite being in bloom for only a short amount of time. I felt the need to not only admire, but capture their beauty and striking colour. There really is something quite majestic about the way they're captured on camera. But yet it was only a matter of chance that we came across them- a coincidence perhaps?

P.S. There's still time to nominate 'Stylepeaches' for 'Best Personal Style Blog'- here, at The Company Style Blogger Awards. Thank you so much, again, if you do!

After watching the new season of the Mad Men, a couple of nights ago, which also happens to be the final from the series :(. I couldn't help but feel inspired by the amazing costumes that graced the characters, as I feel as though the designs are so true to the era (1960's) that the show is set in. I've been currently 'obsessed' with what Megan (Don's wife) has been wearing, in some of the recent episodes (season 6 especially), as her style is so glamorous yet still comes across as 'effortless' - with her big hair and baby doll dresses.

In fact a lot of my style inspiration/icons come from shows like it, and often I see myself taking 'mental notes' of what the characters are wearing for sourcing out my next purchase- does anyone else do this? I'm currently on the look out for the perfect crew neck jacket and bell-sleeve mini dress.  Answers on a postcard of any, reasonably priced, places to source such items would be much appreciated!

When a email popped into my inbox about a pastel themed competition StyleFruits were holding, it was one I simply couldn't resist entering. With killer prizes to be won. Hello... Michael Kors (dream shade of) blue bag, Marc Jacobs Purse and candy-coloured Ray-ban Sunnies. How could I not enter?!

As a self proclaimed 'pastel-addict' and regular 'ice-cream colour' wearer- yep looking like a 'neapolitan' has become a specialty of mine. I dug out some of my favourite pastel coloured pieces, from the 'archives', to style my very own "Pastel Me Pretty" outfit.
For the occasion, out came this asos 'prom style' dress, which has that 50's retro vibe that I adore. Despite the sunny weather, it was still pretty cold (and windy), so I decided to pop on this gorgeous shade of blue jumper- a similar shade to that Michael Kors bag, over the shoulders for a easy 'effortless' cover-up. As this whole outfit screamed 50's, I simply couldn't resist topping the look off with those cat-eye sunglasses. Which if you can tell, from looking at my previous outfit posts, have become my preferred choice of eye-wear as of late. I just can't resist those mirrored lenses and pale pink frames.

Don't forget you can vote for my look here, as I would really appreciate all your votes!
