I'm a 26-year-old on paper, but I'm still a kid by heart. I still remember purchasing my first pair of Vans, the well known black and white checked slip ons, in my early teens and getting mocked at school for wearing them -- only to see 5 others wear them as well a week later. And after all those years, Vans still hold a special place in my heart with their comfort and fun prints.
The last pair of Vans that I got were the ones with the Disney princesses print and I now have my eye on another royal lady: Princess Peach. Vans collaborated with Nintendo and created some fun pairs with prints going from Donkey Kong to Legend Of Zelda, but growing up, I was completely hooked on Super Mario Bros. Weren't we all secretly wanting to be a princess with some dude trying to save us? Forget him being a plumber for a living. Just kidding!
I'm usually not a fan of pink, but I'm willing to make an exception for the adorable pair of sneakers in the picture above. Combine them with a simple tee and a pair of black skinny jeans and you're ready to go. Or well, at least I am.
The Princess Peach Vans sell for $ 65 / € 74,99.
