Afternoon readers! Hope you are all well today, the clouds are back in force in my little town so I'm enjoying an afternoon catching up on blogs and eating quesadillas for lunch, before hopping over to work until 11pm tonight. I'm sure that'll mess up my body clock once again, but I'm looking forward to tomorrow and the ensuing weekend already!

This week's Ways to Wear post is centred around shoes for once, more specifically white Converse, as requested by Hayley at Strangeness & Charm last week. While you probably won't see me in my Converse anymore (soz to disappoint!), I did pair mine with all manner of outfits a year or two ago, and thought I would share them in this W2W edition. I featured these because I suppose they can also be interchanged for white canvas plimsole type shoes, which are easy to wear and perfect in the Spring/Summer months.

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4.

One of my favourite online shops for quirky, vintage-inspired tees is Truffle Shuffle. I'm sure a lot of you have already heard of this store, as it has been known to be favoured by the likes of Fearne Cotton and Mischa Barton. Their designs range from cute pieces to more rock/grunge inspired tees, with tight fits, looser silhouttes, as well as a whole host of sleeve lengths, so there is something for everyone, paired with denim - jeans or shorts - with Converse makes the perfect, laidback chic outfit. My favourite tees include this Minnie Mouse vest, this Wonder Woman baseball shirt and of course the two I have featured. I like balancing out colour in the outfit, to add depth into an otherwise light toned outfit, and have chosen tees with white colours within the motif to pull the look together.

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4.

Look Two is my favourite look this week, and one that is likely to see me whack the Converse out again for old times' sake. I've gone for a retro/hippy/devil may care sort of outfit here. The double layer playsuit is so gorgeous and summery, I'm going to keep my eye out for it tomorrow and have so many ideas to style this up. I love these super-bargainous aviator sunglasses from New Look, who are doing me proud recently, the floral print arms are too cute, and coordinate well with both the floral elements of the playsuit, as well as the black band on the trilby hat. I'm in absolute lust with this ring from Miss Selfridge too: I tried it on on Monday after work, and embarassingly got it stuck on my finger in-store! Don't you just hate that momentary panic?!

Get the look! 1, 2, 3.

My third look is a sweet take on the shorts trend which is huge at the moment. For those a bit conscious of their legs, I think opaque black tights look fine with white Converse, and can easily be included into this outfit. I can't quite get over how adorable this top from ASOS is, and I'd imagine it would be SO easy to 'DIY' if you had a spare half hour! Had to take a leaf out of the ASOS stylist's book and include a bow headband in the mix, which emphasises the girliness of this outfit. I'm still loving the rose, burnt orange and warm tones on the high street at the moment: this pair of looser, belted shorts is so perfect. I think Look Three is a great example of how Converse don't always have to be worn with standard skinny jeans and a T-shirt!

Big thanks to Hayley for requesting this item, it's made me want to dig out my Converse now! Not only does taking requests help you lovely lot out, it really does inspire me too! If any of you wear outfits inspired by these posts, let me know so I can link you in a future edition (: I hope you enjoyed this edition of Ways to Wear, how do you wear your Converse?

  7. Thank you Courtney! I initially struggled to put looks together, I think Converse are infamous for looking scruffy and v. casual, but I totally want to wear mine again now! You're welcome sweet. xx

    Thanks Harriet, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Me too, they were so easy to wear but I totally abandoned them for flats and other shoes! Might wear mine at some point in the week. Thank you Vicky (: x

  19. great ways to wear once again! They're fast becoming one of my favourite posts, and so inspirational!
    I was wondering if you could include this skirt in a ways to wear please?
    (skirt - http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/skirts/button-denim-skirt_217650341 )
    I bought it a couple of weeks back, but I'm pretty stuck for inspiration on how to style it besides a t-shirt tucked in. If you have any ideas I'll be grateful, thanks in advance if you do decide to include it.
    I'm still loving the feature! (and your blog obviously!)

  34. I love this post! I need some new converse soon - have always been a black girl but now am very tempted by white ones. I am starting to love how they look with tights. :) I think white ones would look cute with bare legs, too, like in your second example.

  36. You're welcome Kate! Glad it helped! xo

    Thank you Sarah! White ones are so so perfect, my sister almost bought a pair today actually, but they were out of stock in her size. Mm me too, Lookbook and Chictopia have a tendency to make you rethink garments like Converse. xx

    Thank you Emma (: I love the 'Girl' shirt as well! Thanks for following too! xo
