Sugar sweet pastels have been sprinkled across magazines, blogs and shops for a while now, so it's a prayer answered when these sickly sweetened vibes are mixed with 'edgier' grunge ensembles to create a refreshing new look.  Think studs, ripped shirts, band tees, Creepers, spikes, slashed shorts, blended with soft pastel hues: lilacs, peaches, lemons, faded turquoises. The two completely different styles 'pastels' and 'grunge' complement each other, balancing the fine line between 'the sickening girly-girl' and 'the rock band junkie' look (believe me, i've done both, balance is key). But when these two opposites fully combine - cue the white soled Creepers - i believe i'm in heaven. So embrace one of my favourite trends this spring/ summer and experience the studded sorbet haze

I love the mix of the two, I can't handle too much of pastel sweet pieces, but mixed with the grungier pieces it looks fantastic xx
