Shoe Blog: Pretty Sweet
Following on from the Louis Vuitton campaign, this spring fashion is having a love affair with everything pretty, sweet and gorgeously girly. From coral to mint green, from lemon to lilac, there is a shade for everyone.

If you don’t want to wear the pastel trend head to toe, or on your thighs with the jeans trend, a great way to have fun with this look is with your SHOES! Pare back with denim, grey or neutrals which are softer than black.
Check out our top 10 pastel hued shoes below:
The GISELLE peep-toe by Paco Gil is pure gelato goodness – caramel patent upper with a strawberry platform and blueberry heel – delicious!
WHISKERLO by Stuart Weitzman is an adorable pointed toe ballet flat with silver toe-cap and bow in blush patent. Or if you’re a heels girl, go for mary jane CAPSIZE.
HANA by Paco Gil in shell-pink/black while demure in colour features a kick-ass heel and 60’s inspired buckle detailing.
Grey is a great colour to tone down pastels – like the elegant JULIE by Pas de Rouge.
Wedges are a must for summer, especially for beach events and barbecues. We can’t go past the blush-pink patent NOELLE by Pas de Rouge – with pretty bow on a lightweight cork wedge.
SHEA by Clarks. Nothing beats a stylish sandal – and this vintage inspired style in lilac would be perfect for a garden party.
LIV by Fly London. A spin on the classic ballet flat in on-trend mint green/khaki.
More of a quirky girl? Inject some tough into your pretty with SPIKE by United Nude in cream.
Over at our friends www.runwayshoes.co.nz Repetto have done a butter-soft lilac bootie called RUBY that is the perfect neutral for all-year-round.
AMELIE by Pas de Rouge is a peep-toe ballet pump with hidden wedge. Choose from turquoise or coral.
And finally, to take you from day to night we love a good wallet-clutch hybrid – like the TILLY by Saben – in blush or mint.
