Wardrobe Essentials #2

Converse

My first Wardrobe Essentials post a few weeks ago was something a little different for my blog however I received some really nice feedback which left me feeling rather encouraged to continue; thank you all for your positive feedback. This evening I'm back with another essential post which features my all-time favourite item of footwear. From that initial discovery way back in year 10 I have never since looked back, numerous pairs later along with quite a few blisters from the early stages I have to say that I've most certainly fallen hook line and sinker for a simple pair of Converse.

Converse come in a wide range of styles, colours and patterns these days however I do tend to gravitate towards the traditional black style as they go with pretty much anything and help to make any outfit more casual. This year I plan on breaking tradition as I'm pretty keen to buy a white pair for the warmer weather, they will of course be strictly dry weather only because I cannot stand white shoes getting dirty; I'm forever trying to keep the simple white rubber out sole on those above clean; alas eventually even I have to admit defeat.

For me a pair of Converse is most certainly a staple item within my wardrobe. I simply would not live without mine as I wear them every single day and they have without doubt been the only shoe that I have purchased more than once; how many times can you say that when it comes to footwear? I've always been such a fuss pot with shoes therefore knowing I can order a new pair without having to try them on will always be a blessing for me.

  3. I love my converse although I have the lite pair and they rub so bad after a few hours so I really want some of the white mono originals. Great post!

  5. I love mine as well and they are staples in my closet. Converse sneakers have made a reputation for themselves as being the "cool" sneaker. I have a hard time keeping them clean and it doesn't look like you have that issue! How do you keep yours so bright?

  6. I have white converses and I'm the same - I barely wear them because of the fear that they'll get dirty haha.


    I really like these posts too, I'm glad you've done another one!

  7. To be fair Alex these are relatively new, I purchased them at the end of April. I just clean them with warm water and a bit of fairy liquid :) x

  9. Ah that's still helpful, thanks! Tamira from Lipstick with Some Sunshine suggested those Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sponges. I haven't tried it though but that could be a good option, too, I think.

  21. I've gone through so many pairs in my life! They last until the bitter end - but get better with age. You should have seen my first ever pair, if they still fitted me I think I'd wear them every day because they looked so good!
    My mum is also a converse lover, she's still on her first pair, pretty sure they're at least 7 years old now?!
    Brilliant shoe for dog walks, quick trips into town, or .. just anything really! I do miss the feeling of brand new converse, they look so great with jeans and a nice top.
    You've made me want to get some more now!
