Sugar Coated Pastels Meets English Rose

I don’t know if you have had a chance yet to see Christopher Bailey’s beautiful SS14 collection for Burberry, but it is definitely worth having a look at. With the likes of Sienna Miller, Harry Styles and ‘it’ model Suki Waterhouse in the front row, it was destined to be a spectacular affair and Christopher certainly didn’t disappoint. ‘I wanted the colours to be soft and gentle, like sugared flowers,’ he said.

Not only was the show a feast for one’s eyes with the ‘pretty pretty’ shades of mint, pale lemon, rose, lavender etc, it was also very bridal as he had a petal strewn finale. The collection was all about the English rose, which is what many brides-to-be want to look like on their wedding day.

Taking inspiration from Burberry’s SS14 collection, today’s post is all about ideas for a palette of sugar sweet pastels…

How gorgeous is this outfit and the colour combination of pale green with pink, which featured on Burberry’s collection? Perfect inspiration for your mother’s outfit or for a guest.

This blush and rose chiffon dress, style JH5357, which is part of Jim Hjelm’s Occasions Fall 2013 collection, is so feminine.
