I was having breakfast when I read this post and decided I could do it today, a sunny winters day.

I was planning to experiment with different footwear (tan/gold/black) and bags (tan/stone) but realised I have put a hole in the front of the sweater. Argh. It was purchased last year and has been well worn, however, I thought it still had a lot of wear in it. The hole is in the front chest area so very obvious, so the sweater will either be worn with a scarf or for lounge wear only.

I am not a big pastel fan (overdosed in the 1980s) and only own this sweater and a summer printed top in blush. I tend to wear them both mostly with denim, and either black or tan footwear, belts, bags with a touch of metallic. I definitely prefer light footwear with the black pants to balance out my hair.

I chose my backpack as it had black and white in it and I have a casual day planned, working from home and attending a maths competition with my 11 year old.

Should I be wearing more pastels and if so, which ones? I consider the following pastels and would wear a couple of these- baby pink, baby blue, lemon, mint, mauve, aqua, blush, peach.
