Ice Cream Pastels!

Did you know that in America, July is National Ice Cream month? I LOVE ice cream. I don’t eat it often, because when I open a tub, I can’t stop!

Pistachio, mint choc chip, strawberry, peach melba, raspberry ripple, vanilla, cream…wait a minute, is this ice cream I’m describing or the ice cream pastels in my wardrobe?!

Pastels have been a big trend this year (and are set to continue as a trend into autumn/winter), so inspired by the USA\s National ice cream month, and because it’s my birthday today – and ice cream must feature somewhere – here’s a whole load of gorgeous ice cream pastels to see out summer in. And wearing your ice cream pastels is a lot easier on the waistline!

Pastel pink reminds me of creamy strawberry ice cream. Mix it up with a cute ice cream pastels print T-shirt. Add a fun ice cream themed charm bracelet!
