Converse x Marimekko

I have a soft spot for Converse even though they are not the most comfortable shoes! My fashion 'dilemma' has always been whether to go for something I really like but not at all practical or something that is just functional or practical. I have gone down both routes, these days I try to find a middle ground.

Summer sales started last month and I had been too busy to shop, but thanks to online shopping, I spotted these Converse x Marimekko shoes on Net-a-porter... and as a fan of Marimekko prints, I just couldn't resist the temptation!

The Unikko poppy print is Marimekko’s most popular and recognizable pattern created in 1964 by Finnish designer, Maija Isola. It's such a classic design, bold but not too girly. I love the shoe bag too!

I think I have fallen back in love with Converse again...
