On Saturday my friend Rachel and I were discussing clothes and clothes shopping and in particular she was telling me how Asda have some nice things in at the moment, so I decided I'd have a look online and see if they had anything I liked the look of and I found a few things that I thought would be perfect for the spring so I thought I'd share them with you.

G21 Tux Blazer ~ £15.00 - This lovely baby pink blazer is available in sizes 8-20. It's perfect for spring, a gorgeous on trend pastel pink that would suit many skin tones and all ages, I love the open front design without buttons. The texture of the fabric is a waffle type fabric so a little thicker for those days when it's still quite cool. This would look lovely worn with some skinny jeans, a simple white tee and a lovely coloured statement necklace, it could be dressed up with heels or down with flats, and even wear with some white converse for a much more casual look, ideal for many occasions and a brilliant price too.
Chunky Chain Gem Necklace ~ £10.00 - How lovely is this necklace? This caught my eye immediately, I really like pastel blue and find I'm drawn to things this colour more and more recently. I love statement necklaces and last summer I bought a couple and wore them a lot and I have seen quite a few I like already for spring/summer, there are some beautiful ones in Accessorize but they're quite expensive, this one is lovely and at £10 no where near as pricey as some I've seen which have been well over the £25 mark. I like to mix pastels and I think this would look lovely worn with a plain white tee and the pastel pink blazer with some skinny jeans, it really is lovely.
Roll Sleeve T-Shirt ~ £4.00 - This is a real bargain at only £4.00, I have seen this t-shirt in the flesh and it is a lot brighter in colour than it looks here, it is much more neon that pastel but it's lovely and for £4.00 it really is a bargain. I love neon colours, I think they really brighten up an outfit. I would size up with this making it over sized and wear it with either leggings or skinny jeans and my converse or for a more smart/casual look I'd wear some ballet pumps and a nice statement necklace, this is a simple piece but a great addition to any spring wardrobe and a fabulous price too. This t-shirt comes in sizes 8-24.

G21 Sleeveless Floral Shirt ~ £12.00 - I love this top, it's really pretty, again in the gorgeous pastel blue. It has really nice jewelled detail on the peter pan collar, the jewels are in a cream and pink/coral colour and add a really pretty detail to the top. This is another great price, this would be far more expensive if sold in Topshop for example, it's something that again can be dressed up or down and worn with many different pieces. I'd wear this with skinny jeans or jeggings, or tucked into a high waisted skirt or trousers, it could be worn with a suit for a smart look also. It's a very versatile piece and perfect for spring and because of the lovely jewelled detail on the collar, no necklace is needed. The top comes in sizes 8-20.
Floral Embroidered Ballet Shoes ~ £10.00 - These are so pretty and come in a few colours so theres bound to be a colour you'll like. I have seen this style of ballet pumps on a few websites now so I think they're going to be a popular and fashionable item for spring/summer. Obviously not the most practical of shoe being textile uppers and with the amount of rain we have in the UK but lovely all the same. I couldn't make my mind up which I liked best between this colour and a coral colour but I have some coral patent ballet pumps that I bought last summer, also from Asda, so I opted for the aqua. I love the flower design on these shoes, they're really pretty and I think they would look lovely with lots of different outfits and add a nice summery feel to any outfit, as long as it isn't raining that is! The shoes are available in sizes 3-9.
G21 Scallop Shorts ~ £12.00 - These pastel pink scallop edge shorts are lovely, I'm not quite sure I'd be brave enough to wear them, too old and too chunky springs to mind but they are lovely, I love the scalloped edge detailing and think they could be worn dressed up or down for a smart or casual look. They have a side zip fastening so give a nice soft flat front, perfect if you want to tuck a top into them or wear a cropped top, not that I would ever be rocking a cropped top! If I were ever brave enough to wear them, I would wear them with a pastel coloured cami top, maybe pastel blue or mint and some barely there sandals for a smart look and a vest top/t-shirt and ballet pumps for a more casual look. They are available in sizes 6-18 and really are a fantastic price.
So those are just a few items I spotted on the George at Asda website, but to be honest they had a lot of nice items, there's some lovely spring knitwear and lovely maxi dresses too, I would definitely recommend you pop over and have a look, click here to be taken to their website.
Which item of my picks is your favourite? Are you loving the pastel trend? And do you buy clothes from the supermarket or is it strictly for food shopping for you? Do you have any clothing recommendations for me?
