Apparently British summertime begins on Sunday. Unbelievable? Possibly. Had enough of the cold? Most likely (us too). About time we got some colour into our wardrobes though? Most definitely. Because when we planned what we were going to write about this week we decided on gorgeous, yummy, summer holiday reminiscent pastel colours and so that’s what we’re going to do- snow or sun!
Here in the office we’re more than a little bit in love with pastel colours. It’s why in fact, our shoe boxes are all mint green and much of our stationery is blush pink. There’s something just so, well, delicious about a pale mint or a baby blue- they add a gorgeous pop of colour whilst their soft shade keeps it subtle. So they make the perfect colour choice for weddings, whether for your bridesmaids, flowers or shoes.
Ever since we started ten years ago we’ve always had coloured shoes in the collection- we’ve never understood why you have to be limited to white or ivory (although we love those too). It’s exciting now more and more people seem to be opting for colours, and means the market is now a rainbow of colour, from pillarbox red to baby blush pink, rich dark green to soft mint. Whether you want to make a statement or add a subtle hint of colour from underneath your dress, there’s a pair of shoes out there for you.
First up is ever popular and much loved mint green, which has been in the collection since the start, from Mimi in mint satin many years ago, to today’s Pinterest favourite Mimosa in mint green leather. After green being named Pantone’s colour choice for 2017, mint has had a revival of late and looks especially elegant combined with metallic gold or even silver.
Next up what’s not to love about soft blush pink? A classic vintage colour, pink and blush shades are flattering on all skin tones, and are of course the perfect choice for the romantics among us! Choose Amalia in softest powder pink suede with gorgeous gold leaves, or bring blush bang up to date with Olivia in delicious crushed velvet- soo pretty!
We all know how the saying goes, something old, something new….and what better way to add your something blue than in a pair of pretty powder blue shoes? Mimosa ivory is one of our classic t-bar styles- already popular in ivory and mint, we added blue to the collection a few years ago and it’s gone on to be just as popular!
