Craving Pastels

Doing the pastel/neon thing on the cheap. 




CONVERSE


Dress & neon necklace: Forever 21.  Similar dresses here and here.  Try these neon necklaces: this, this or this one. Shoes: Converse.  Hat: Trash & Vaudeville (others on sale here). Bag: Thrift. 
This is probably the laziest way to get in on the pastel shade trend for Spring.  Just wear a pair of Converse chucks.   I think this is the what? 3rd pair now? Got the DIY studded greys, the baby pinks and now these bright tangerines. It’s from their Spring line but I’m thinking what if they did neon ones?  *scratches chin*

If you fancy a free pair for yourself have a go here.

I’m wearing a long jersey number over winter leggings.   I won’t be too far off from wearing a version of this collage one day I’m telling you (the Proenza is optional tempting).

    this looks fab, and I actually do have hi-top neon green converse- they’re amazing so I’m surprised chucks stopped making them?
