A sneaky schneeekers purchase - Converse All Star lite in lilac

I've made a little neeeew shooooe purchase - care to peek inside the box?


Not really sure that I'm cool enough to own these, but I'm doing it anyway!  I certainly couldn't pull off the thick soled or high-top Converse, but these ones are just girlie little schneeeekers and I rather love them.

I always go for the pink or purple choice in most things, and this was no exception, I immediately wanted the pretty lilac version.  I went into Office to try these on and to have a little prance before a mirror to check that I thought these would suit me.  I'm still not really sure, but it makes me happy to look down at my feet and see these on.

I'm not very good at doing casual, I certainly don't own any tracksuits or anything like that, so in my world these are strictly to be worn with leggings and plain jersey dresses or jeans and a blazer, and that's what I've done so far.  They came along for a casual Friday adventure at work last week and I clashed them nicely with a peach blazer.

Sadly I don't think these will last me a long time - I've already got some sort of splash mark from a puddle on the back of one of them, but when the time comes I shall try popping them in the washing machine and will see what happens.

If I'm brave, in the sunshine I'll wear these with a floral dress for some girlie weekend casual cool.

These girlie Converse lite cost me £39.99 and you can get them from Office here with free delivery.  They come in loads of other colours and if you're a student you can get 10% off too.

How'd ya like my schneeeeckers?  Can you tell I love saying schneeeeckers? Oh yeah :)
