Ice Cream Pastels for Winter

Is This Mutton style blogger Gail Hanlon in ice cream colors for autumn and winter

In a total contrast to Monday's post - Gothic Romance - today I'm wearing ice cream pastels. In winter! Well, it's still officially autumn but Winter Is Coming. And with further Covid restrictions on their way, bright colors may be a good tonic for all of us to relieve the gloom.

Shades of pale green, pink, orange and yellow in this striking cardigan with jewel buttons creates a pastel colored outfit for winter, as worn by Is This Mutton blogger Gail Hanlon

I saw this cardigan, which has a bit of lurex sparkle in the weave, and jewel buttons, trending on Asos and I thought instantly about wearing it with my yellow chinos. I added gold boots, from the children's section at Boden last year, and a bright pink bag from Amazon.

I've noticed quite a few bloggers and Instagrammers talking about being drawn to bright colors this fall/winter. What do you think? 

I'm predicting a bad winter this year in terms of snow and cold weather.  Two reasons. Firstly, Texas is likely to get snow this week, very early, and we tend to get whatever the US is having, a few weeks later. Also, it was a mast autumn, when the trees and hedgerows mysteriously co-ordinate to provide a bumper harvest of seeds, berries, conkers and acorns. Surely a harbinger.  I don't mind the prospect of snow - extra cosy if you're indoors anyway! And fun for the kids. 

I'm back on Friday with the October edition of Friday Favourites:  TV, book and podcast recommendations. See you then.

  1. Okay, wel a real winter wouldn't be that bad indeed! Not going anywhere for a while here. Our restaurants probably stay closed until December, perhaps until next year if we don't stick to the rules. And most Dutchies don't!!! That certainly is a contrast! But a lovely one. Have a great day Gail.
