Chanel outfit post-pastels, then and now-1997 and 2012

Hi everyone!! Spring is in the air and now its getting milder, I have been suitably inspired by this season's trend of pastels to shop my wardrobe for the lovely weather we are having.

Sorbet pastels were featured in Chanels Resort 2012 and Spring/Summer 2012 collections as seen below- I'm really loving lemon, its a very fresh and stylish take on this trend:

Chanel Summer RTW 2012

Some of you may remember my 'perfect day' back in 2008. when I not only met the gorgeous Wendy B, I also bagged some gorgeous designer goodies from Trudie Styler, do read my post of my most wonderful day here 

I have featured my statement Chanel boucle jacket a few times in my blog, but I have not done an outfit post until now. The jacket is from the 1997 collection and is a gorgeous mix of lemon and lime sorbet, so perfect for this coming season.


I am wearing with it a pale lemon pashmina, grey skinny jeans which are River Island and thrifted from the Sue Ryder charity shop last month for £6. My tan leather boots are by Faith and were a boot sale find a few years back for only 50p:


The cut and style of the lemon sorbet Chanel Resort 2012 is so very similar to my jacket of 1997, which just goes to show a classic Chanel never goes out of fashion or style. Take a tour of my Chanel jacket purchase here

Are you incorporating pastels into your Spring wardrobe yet?

I've had a look on the high street and am loving thr slightly 80s/90s Miami take on pastels that's around. Very fun, fresh, sun bleached. I have a few pastel items and some pale denim so should be able to pull off the style without having to buy too many new items!

You're the owner of a classic Chanel jacket?! So cool! Loving the ice-cream colours on the runway, but not quite sure if they'll work for me IRL. xoxo

Oh my God what a find!! You'll have that jacket forever - it's gorgeous and as you say, a timeless classic.

I'm not at all sure I own ANY pastels, so I'm going to have a hard time! The jacket looks great on you though (of course) and I love the boots. Can't get better than 50p for leather boots!

Hi everyone-thanks so much for all your lovely comments, they are really appreciated xx

FairyFiligree said...

very nice outfit - what lovely blooms back there - what is that tree?

Anusha said...

Oh that is too gorgeous!! I love how your paired the classic Chanel jacket with the scarf -- too cool! I love the whole outfit.

Spring is really weird around here -- one day it'll be hot like summer, the next day (today) cold and rainy. But I can't wait to put away the heavy winter gear and take out the light and colorful Spring clothes.

Such a great score with that jacket. I've actually had a few pastels sneak into my closet and I am firm anti-pastel girl! I am digging the current bright pastels though.

Pearl said...

I remember when you got it, it looks 100% perfect on you, could have been made just for you! I will have to go shopping with you and Wendy one day xxx
