Stripes and Sneaks


For a while I've admired how white sneakers give outfits a casual but fresh twist.  I would naturally pair them with boyfriend jeans and a tee, but I've also seen them paired with flowy maxi skirts and leather jackets, pencil skirts, and, well, pretty much everything.  And I finally got myself some white kicks.  I wasn't sure how much I'd really wear them, so instead of getting the real deal (Converse All Stars) I started with a much less expensive Target version for only $17.  This weekend I paired them with a dress for a day filled with rehearsal for the worship band at church, a friend's birthday party, and dinner with friends.  I loved it!

  1. You look super cute! I have all these pieces and now I can't wait to put them together like this. I'm just hoping I look as cute as you! I'm in my second trimester too and just ordered this dress last week. http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=93287&vid=1&pid=966647002 Let's just say I'm in love. It's super comfy, and I belted it under the bust and paired it with my mustard cardigan and a camisole underneath. (I'm not big on showing too much up top.) I thought you might like it. Have a great week!

  32. This outfit can do no wrong in my book... Just posted about my current love for sneakers + dresses/skirts, and a striped dress/denim jacket combo always wins the day. Even more cute with a little baby bump! Shamelessly copying soon (except for that last part).

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would spend it on accessories. I need new belts, scarves, things that finish an outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I got those sneakers in gray and also got a white pair of Keds Vollie sneakers. I've been missing wearing what my husband refers to as "Jan Brady shoes." I had some probably 10 years ago but it was time to get a few pairs again.

  80. they sell Converse sneakers at Target though too. I think these are so cute with dresses. I just feel like when I open fresh white sneakers I should just look at them and say HI shoes prepare to get dirty.

  81. Bahaha that's pretty much what I said to my shoes.


    And yes Target sells Converse, but I don't like them as much as the All Stars. The One Stars (Target) has a brighter red stripe and slightly different shape.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Man...I need some slip on ones instead. Most of my shoes are slip-ons, but when it comes to running shoes and these newly acquired white shoes my belly is getting in the way of tying shoes!
