high top nostalgia

When I was in high school, I participated in an exchange program with an English school. One of my most vivid memories of the time was how much I envied the girls with their vintage shearling coats, flared jeans and high top Chuck Taylors. Anyway, many years later, I still thought of those stylish girls when I finally replaced my much-abused last pair of Chucks with these babies. When we went to Hot Springs last weekend, I foolishly left my shearling coat at home only to get hit with an overnight blizzard, so this was me making do with what I brought.

  3. Love that you posted an outfit with Converse shoes! I feel like a lot of style bloggers only like to show their "fancy" shoes, so they never wear normal things like tennis shoes - but I wear tennis shoes all the time, so it's nice to see some inspiration for them!

  4. I like the mix of casual shoes and fancy vest! And I remember having high school shoe envy too... except the cool girls had Roots boots. In university I worked at Roots and I finally got my own pair...:)
