trainer of the day: reebok classic leather pastel '30th anniversary'

really this style could be the trainer of the week, month, year...forever! i picked these up from chemicalrecords last year and i've forever regretted since not doubling up! after umming and ahhhhing for weeks over purchasing them (being an all black outfit girl, colour isn't my strong point) i finally caved and clicked purchase.

the 30th anniversary collection consisted of four pastel colourways for women in the classic leather suede - baby pink, lilac, yellow and a creamy tan. each style featured a celebratory tongue label with an iconic reebok 30th anniversary embroidered tag.

reebok has to be one of my favourite brands, i used to always be in a pair of reebok classics when i was younger and find them to be super comfy and easy to wear. i've been styling them up with my motel moons and stars babydoll, which is my favourite (picture below, sorry for my kittens toy watermelon in the background - ooops) - the pink just adds a gorgeous girly colour pop! also my asos mesh sleeved skater dress works a treat, styled with my portland from shore projects.

sadly they are in need of some jason markk treatment, after i decided to do the adidas leeds store shop fit in them! but now payday has rolled around, i'm going to treat myself to a pair of the classic leather seasonal trainers which are available now, and act as a great alternative and will stop me trashing my 30th anniversary ones!

shore projects - italian leather straps

my favourite accessory brand shore projects are back for winter, with a selection of italian leather straps - carefully designed in shades from black to a light oxblood tan, which are the perfect compliment to the autumn season. the full italian leather strap collection follows on from the recent polka dot release - you can view my post on that here and also the initial canvas collection, which you can check out here.

the new look straps feature subtle embossed branding to the front of the strap, with classic shore projects branding to the reverse. the italian leather is dreamy, super soft so it doesn't rub or catch your skin when worn. the brand have also kept the two strap tidies to the new straps also, a design feature are perfect for if you have slim wrists like me - forever having trouble with the excess catching and getting worn out.

its safe to say with black being my favourite colour i was dreaming of the day the brand would release a greyscale collection, and shore projects haven't disappointed. for a girl that never used to wear a watch, i now can't go anywhere without mine on! the versatility of the watches is endless, i can't help myself setting time aside in the mornings to find the perfect strap to match my outfit!

the italian leather straps retail at £30, they are the more expensive of the straps - but a complete must-have investment piece. if the subtle colours are maybe not your thing, the polka dot italian leather straps are a colourful alternative at £25 - (pistachio ice cream being my favourite!)

the shore projects leather strap collection is available online here, and if you fancy picking yourself up a portland watch face like mine the faces can be found here. i've been styling mine with a mesh sleeved skater dress from asos and my pastel reebok classics for a girly colour pop - summer can't be over just yet!

keep up with all things shore via the brands facebook, instagram and twitter pages.
