That is it. I now think the summer is finally over. Thus I thought the time could not be more perfect to say goodbye to my favourite trend of the last season – pastels – with one last summer outfit, one going totally over the top with all the soft ice cream colours that I have been wearing past couple of months. And here it is, on one of the last warm days I put together super pastel explosion and took a photo for you to have a look. I am wearing baby pink cropped oversized tank from American Apparel, skinny mint Leigh trousers from Topshop and Converse trainers I designed myself using their online tool and blogged about the experience earlier this year here. Accessories-wise I am wearing pink and green Allumette necklace by Allumer (1), Dior ring (2), ASOS perspex bag I also mentioned a few months ago here (3), Beta silk scarf that is printed with symmetrical geometrical print in beautiful pastel colours (4, check out their entire collection here), Timex pastel watch as mentioned here (5) and ASOS gummy bracelets once again in combination of pastel colours (6).
The best thing, even though I am saying goodbye to this palette for the vivid colours of Autumn/Winter 2012, I am happy to store those garments for the next spring when thanks to a number of shows recently seen in New York and London, the palette is going to come back. So see you soon pastels!
My Two Big Loves

I mean my love for Pastels and Converse! Of course I do absolutely adore high heels, which I am sure you have noticed based on my constant blogging about killer heels, but during the day when I am running around London it is all about flat shoes. Hence my love for Converse – nothing suits my style better (despite pretty large collection of cute ballerina flats of which my favourites are by Tory Burch).
And since new season is all about pastels, it is time to update my Converse range with oh-so-fashionable colour palette! This could not be easier as on Converse website you can design your own perfect shoe – anything from shape to patterns and colours of every single part of the shoe. You can even get your own name sewn into the design. So above are my beautiful Converse I just ordered that will be with me in 3-4 weeks, just in time for good Converse-friendly weather, I hope. All I need is one of those American Apparel Pouches I added to my pastel wish list a few posts back and I tick all the trend boxes!
