I apologize for the second post about shoes and pictures of Ashley Olsen this week… For someone who claims they don’t really care much about footwear I sure am thinking and blogging about them a lot. And I adore Ash Olsen – no apologies for that. So, my coolest friends Erin and Lauren (along with the lovely and stylish ladies above) have Converse sneakers and I want to copy them. I’m one of those people who immediately changes out of work clothes at the end of the day and relishes the weekend because it means I can wear stretch pants and comfy clothes or a full work out ensemble for a full 2 days. But I feel stupid wearing my running shoes when I’m running errands and have zero plans to go to the gym. I get paranoid at the grocery store that people are thinking, “That girl is wearing mascara and earrings, clearly she is not going to be performing physical activity today.” I’m also getting tired of wearing my beloved Minnetonka deer skin moccasins… They’re super comfortable but not as versatile as you might think. Converse sneakers go with workout leggins AND denim shorts AND casual dresses.
This post is basically me convincing myself that it’s okay to buy a pair of chucks. I mean, they are an American icon and the staple of hipsters and fashionistas alike – how can I not let myself get them. In charcoal. This weekend. Good, I’m glad that’s settled.
