OUTFIT POST: Denim Pastels.

Hey everyone,

I thought that it's been quite a while since my last Outfit Post - so I took a picture of my outfit today!

DRESS: Dorothy Perkins, £12ish.
JACKET: Matalan, £16.
BAG: Matalan, £8.
NECKLACE: Vintage, £My mam's from the 1980s.
HAIRBAND: New Look, £Prize.
LEGGINGS: Primark, £2.
SHOES: Dorothy Perkins, £15.
POINT OF FASHION: Soft pastels.

I've always worn bold or dark colours, so I'm really trying to embrace the soft pastels trend.
That denim jacket's my little obsession at the minute, I'm wearing it with absolutely everything!

The lovelies at one of my all-time favourite online stores Heidi Seeker sent me some stuff to review so expect that mid-next week.. And the lovelies at ANN SUMMERS (Only click if you're over 18!) sent me some pretty things to review also (nothing rude though, this is not that type of blog! ;)) so I'll be talking about that soon too.

I'm so busy over the next couple of days as my dissertation recording is happening on Tuesday and until then I'm dedrafting the script over the weekend until it's just right.

However, I am up to 99 FOLLOWERS! I've been getting a few things for the 100 FOLLOWERS GIVEWAY I'll be hosting soon. We're just waiting for the latest crew member to join the good ship MessyCarla!

Keep commenting and following me on Twitter! I love hearing from you guys.

Muchos love,

PS: Me and the boy went to the Marble Slab Creamery in Newcastle today on an ice-cream date. Definately check them out in you're local - it was my first scoop of Butter Pecan with Butterfingers since I was in Virginia in 2008!

Also, when I'm not working, I'm watching my Ugly Betty boxsets. This is one of my favourite scenes - what's not to like? Marc, Amanda, couture gowns and musicals!


And April makes 100!


  1. Cute outfit - love the bow & the colour of your bag :)


  2. Love the cute accessories :)

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE THE BAG! and actually the jacket... haven't been a fan of the denim jacket yet, but this one looks sooo goood! x x x x

  4. Heartshapedbrusie: Thanks, I do too :)

    Marian: Thank you! :) xx

    Alex: Yeah, I think accessories can really pull an outfit together a lot of the time! Thanks for your comment xxx

    Sarah-May: Me too it's been a bit of a search for the right one. I think a darker denim would wash me out, and a longer one would make me look dumpy. Ones that go under the bust/tummy are adorable, and I love the 3/4 length sleeves! xxxx

  5. you've got a lovely style !

  6. Just found your blog :) You look SO much like my gorgeous cousin I did a double take!

  7. Hehe aww thank you, that's so sweet of you :DD xxxx

  8. hey carla, I love the bag I have the same in a turquiose colour. I love matalan, my mam works at the pallion one and my sister works at a matalan clearence store.

    Also my interview with you should be up today

  9. i love matalan too - i think you have to go early when the lines are launched though, as they seem to sell out pretty fast (i also got the polka dot prom dress!).
    haha i go to the clearence store (in gateshead!) it's the nearest one to me.

    ahhh exciting! i'll link folk on twitter etc to it when it's up. i love the new layout too :) xxxxx

  10. I proper proper PROPER love that denim jacket it reminds me of Desperately Seeking Susan-era Madonna :D Loosh

  11. I loveee the bag, it's been too long since I've been to Matalan. My denim jacket is definitely my spring/summer staple, it goes with everything!
