Converse

The rarely seen Converse sneakers make an appearance! Every time I see others wearing their Chucks, I love them. I envy them. I think, "So damn cute!" and yet when I put mine on, all I think is that my feet look twice their normal size, wonder if heels would be better, and inevitably, put on heels.

But this time I decided to commit to the converse, keeping things casual in the sweatshirt dress and denim jacket, and I have decided, after much doubt and deliberation, that I look pretty damn cute in them.

  1. This is a fun way to style these shoes, I don't own any, I just don't think they'd look cute on me.

  5. This look is SO cute! I totally know how you feel. I love how converse look on other people (they look great on you!) but when I put them on I feel like a clown!

  6. Not only do your feet look totally normal but they also look super cute in sneakers - you should wear them more often!

  7. You do look pretty damn cute in them! I love that cobalt color! I feel like my feet look bigger in them, too but I try not to think about it because I love the casual vibe.

  13. You know what is weird? When I wear actual converse I feel weird in them. My feet DO look bigger and such. Then I put on an off-brand and then I feel fine. What is with that??

  14. I have yet to try converse--but like you I always like them on others :) and seeing them on you is no exception--so cute!

  15. I DO THE SAME THING! I feel like my feet could easily double as jet skis when I'm wearing my converse. I love them with this casual dress. So effortlessly summer.

  16. I agree, you look totally cute in them !
    and i have the same problem, I have a Converse like pair of sneakers from H&M that I take off 99% of the time I am just about to walk out the door with them.
    In my case I replace them with flats.

  17. I always used to go through the exact same mental battle with my Chuck Taylors which is why, when they finally died, I didn't bother to replace them. But anytime I see anyone else wearing them - ie, you in this post - I think, I need them! I must wear them with dresses! I've had a white pair on my wishlist forever and I think this summer is the time that I'm finally going to bring them home. And undoubtedly wear them with an outfit very similar to this one ;)

  18. Love the color of your converse, and they look great with this dress! I love my converse but seem to think they look weird on me when I wear a dress, so I usually just wear them with jeans or shorts.

  23. I agree that this outfit is pretty darn cute on you! I love wearing my converse with dresses to dress down for the weekend. Unfortunately, with the lack of support, they actually hurt my feet so I don't wear mine if I have a lot of walking to do.

  24. I think you look great and the shoes pair well with the dress and the jacket.

    I'm the same way about Converse; I love them on everyone else but they make my size 10s look like boats!

  33. Love your Gray Fit+Flare Knit Dress and especially the Converse Sneakers. The color is superb. The denim jacket tied around the waist adds to the cool, bohemian vibe. =)
