If you saw my Spring/Summer trends post, you would know pastels will be everywhere in stores this season. If you're not into the bright colour trend, the soft pastel colours will be a better option for adding some colour this Spring.

I have had this Champagne pink coloured skirt for years, I take it out every year as it goes with everything. In this photo, I have teamed it up with a lilac jumper and white boots as I wanted to keep it tonal. Jumper (New), Skirt (old) Similar here or here, Shoes (old) Similar here or here.

Whether you go top to toe pastel or not, here are a few looks you can create, sometimes just adding one or two colours will make a huge difference:

Look 1, I've added a pink blazer over boyfriend jeans to make a casual outfit stand out.

Blazer, Jeans, Bag, Shoes, T-Shirt

Look 2, white is also a pastel colour, don't be afraid of wearing an all-white dress or jumpsuit, add a black biker jacket or dark accessories to break down the outfit.

Dress, Shoes, Earrings

Look 3, suits are great, mix and match them, wear them during the day with trainers or evening with heels. It's smart, sexy and so chic.

Blazer, Trousers, T-shirt, Trainers

Look 4, if you're not into pastel colours, accessories will do the job. If there is one colour to invest in this season, it's lilac! Or you could just buy a multicoloured bag and wear with everything!

Trousers, T-shirt, Bag, Trainers

Classic Trainers

You can never have too many shoes or trainers, that's a fact right? I have had a love for trainers since my first pair of Nike trainers, it was in the early 90s, a white and purple pair I wore with everything! I remember owning a pair of hi-top trainers before this, by Hi-Tec, it was chunky, but I still wore that with everything (yep even dresses, I've been rocking this look for ages). My dad also bought me a pair of 'Nicks', he tried to convince me it was Nike, I knew it wasn't! #returned

It was probably around University time I started going a bit crazy with buying trainers in different colours and styles, my part-time job in a department store didn't help much as this was the start of my compulsive spending habits. Luckily, I've improved a lot, although it may not seem it at times. From owning Nike Tn trainers to Reebok classics, the love for trainers was not going to stop.

Below are a few of the trainers I own at the moment along with some trainers I wouldn't mind having to the collection, mainly the classics. My most worn trainers are my converses, can be worn with just about anything from a suit to a dress. I invested in the converse high tops too and love them (Although getting them on can be a struggle). My Adidas Stan Smiths are another pair I own that are comfy and again goes with everything too, I have the ones with the green tab at the back which are their classics but eyeing up other colourways.

My New Balance trainers are one of the comfiest trainers I own, I saw an off-white pair last year at their outlet and regretted not buying it for £30! The yellow reeboks I have, I bought after falling in love with the colour, they definitely make a difference to a basic outfit. I owned a pair of the Reebok club C 85 vintage trainers but sadly had to return them due to a fault in the leather. I would definitely recommend them for comfort too.

The vans were everywhere last year and year before, I didn't think I would invest in a pair purely because I have black converses but I finally gave in this year. I need a while to get used to them as they are not the easiest to get on at the moment.

1st Row L-R: Stan Smiths, Vans, Converses, High Tops
2nd Row L-R: New Balance, Stan Smiths, New Balance, Vans
3rd Row L-R: Nike, Nike, Veja, Supergas
4th Row L-R: Golden Goose, Supergas, Common Projects, Reebok

I'm not sure what my next pair will be, but I'm liking all the pink trainers I'm seeing. I wanted another pair of Stan Smiths but now thinking I have too many white trainers?! But they do, all look different?

What's your favourite trainer and are you into the big chunky 'dad' trainers in at the moment?
Thanks for reading as always, happy shopping!
