A few weeks ago, I caved for a pair of peach pink Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers. Just the right mix of girly and street and a perfect fit for my current pastel cravings. Obviously I was dying to try them out with some of my other pastel favorites and show them off to you. But I felt like they deserved an appropriate setting. When I passed by this lovely pink blossom while driving home from work (the adventures of a commuter…) I just knew they would get along nicely with my precious pair of pink kicks.
So the next day we drove back to that hotspot of pink loveliness… Only to find it crowded with an enormous Indian family having a barbecue. Although not really the perfect backdrop for an outfit shoot, it truly was a great sight. Happy faces and laughing voices all around. Public barbecue spots are really a nice concept, don’t you think? But I’m drifting off. Back to the blossoms :) Something you might not know about me yet (unless you know me in person, in which case you probably do :) ): I can get pretty stubborn. Or as they say In Flemish: If something’s in my head, it’s not in my feet (some sayings really don’t make sense now, do they? :) ) I wanted pink blossoms. My kicks deserved pink blossoms. I would find pink blossoms. So we made a little drive on a quest for that same degree of pink loveliness. And ironically ended up right where we started, about 10m behind the happily loud Indian family (there was a second three that was just as pink and not surrounded with barbecue smoke, hurray!). And aren’t those blossoms a pretty sight?

By the way: did I mention I have awesome colleagues? I got this necklace as a birthday gift from my pretty partner-in-crime Molly and the bracelets from my lovely next-desk-neighbor Sophie. Naturally their awesomeness goes far beyond these pretty gifts, but they serve as a nice sample :)
