I clearly remember the day that I got my first pair of converse shoes as a teenager. I seriously thought I was the coolest kid on the block. They were bright pink (of course!) with high-tops and I don’t think I ever took them off. All my friends had them and I really felt that I had arrived! Looking back, I think the bright pink was way over the top but I was 13 or 14 and clearly not as cool as I thought I was! Even though I’m not much of a trainers kind of gal anymore, I still love these cool shoes but these days I’m much more in to the muted colours and I especially love the simple black ones because they go with everything and look pretty stylish too. Not long ago I also bought a mini red pair for my daughter who wasn’t as keen on these shoes as me until she saw the glitter ones and is now hankering for a pair of those. I have to admit I am partial to the gold ones and am tempted to get a pair for her and me. A little bit of sparkle for the coming winter months seems like a good idea to me.
So this week with these shoes in mind, I thought I would have a bit of fun with the mama & baby post… let mama sport these cool and classic trainers while baby plays with those DIY converse wearing hens! Aren’t they so quirky-cute?
