Red Lips, Grey Shirt

I’m not really a sweatshirt and sneakers type of girl, BUT when the sweatshirt is sparkly and the sneakers are lipstick red – I’m willing to give the look a try!

Would you believe these are my FIRST ever pair of Chuck Taylors? I’ve always liked the classic look of them – but never saw the need to add a pair to my wardrobe…until our theme-park trip to Florida. My feet ached from ALL that walking – and looking back, I should have opted for sneakers over ballet flats! Union Jack Boots offered to let me try a pair of shoes from their site – so I opted for this classic red pair (although I was also tempted by the navy..and a little bit by the pink)! Now I’m ready for our next family holiday – I can walk for miles in these shoes!

Do you own any Converse shoes – if so, what color is your favorite?

As I mentioned in my last post – my heart has been stolen by all the Spring/Summer Media Previews! Here are some highlights:

Forever Ever New Lia Lace Dress and Erin Embellished Clutch

I’m so in love with the Lia Lace Dress and Erin Embellished Clutch from Ever New.

I’ll be first in line to shop these pretty palm print and floral pieces from Dynamite – love the tropical vibe!

What Spring/Summer trends are you looking forward to?

    I LOVE your first look! That sweatshirt is the cutest and I love all the pops of red! I have a few pairs of converse, I love my pair that are mint color, but the white pair are the most versatile!xx,

      Mint sounds really pretty! And I love the look of the white ones – they look so classic and chic…but I was too worried I'd get them dirty!

    That sweatshirt is too cute! And totally appropriate for a beauty blogger 🙂 I'm not a sweatshirt girl either, but I do have one from target I wear to work out or lounge in. I think they are cuter than they used to be! I don't own converse, but my hubby does and now I'm kind of tempted to get a pair of grey ones like his!

      Grey converse sneakers sound super cute…and very understated too! You're right – there are definitely a lot of cuter options for sweatshirts now – I love the slim line ones with a graphic print!

    Love this look! I used to have a huge obsession over converse to the point I have one in every color of the rainbow! My obsession stopped but I do still have over 20 pairs to date. Haha :)Http://

      Wow 20 pairs – that's true fan 😉 But I can DEFINITELY understand the urge to get them in multiple colors!!!

    I love my Converse! Right now my collection stands at 13 pairs. I know this because I wear them regularly to work and my students made me count. My most colors pairs are the navy (my first pair, they've even seen the Gran Canyon), then the red and the Tiffany blue (both so classic). The "highlighter yellow" have gotten a surprising amount of use, and the most recent addition is "spring green". I even have my so-called "Kate Spade" pair– ivory suede with gold polka dots. =)

      Wow – sounds like you have an AMAZING collection! And yes – TIffany blue would be my favourite too. The Kate Spade one sounds amazing but I would have NO idea on how to keep it ivory ;-P
