SHOES: Converse Chuck TaylorΒ // JACKET: Veda // SWEATS: Top Shop// ATTICUSSHOES: Converse Chuck Taylor

Back in junior high I got my first pair of Converse sneakers and I remember thinking I was sooo cool!!! I have always had a pair in my closet since then – they are totally the classic sneaker. I always say how I love having comfy shoes to run around with Atticus in and these are definitely a part of my go to selection for everyday wear. I have the high top but wanted a new pair of the low top style so I got these from DSW and I love a pair of fresh white sneakers. But as much as I love them bright and white something is so cool about having dirty worn in chucks. They can go with so many different looks and just add a laid back vibe to whatever you are wearing. Β I love how easy you can go from day to night in them because they work with almost anything. I wore them out for a morning walk, out to lunch, and the final leather look with the leather jacket was what I wore on a quick walk before I met up with my girlfriends for dinner. And how dang cute are little kids in chucks by the way?!?!? My absolute favorite!! And random fact – when we were taking these pictures some woman came up to us and started pinching Atticus cheek telling him how cute he is. She then pulled out the hugest stack of cash and handed Atticus a five dollar bill and said to buy him something nice haha! It was so random. Atticus picked out a sucker πŸ™‚

Here are some more Converse styles from DSW that I love…

Black Low Tops

Black High Tops

Metallic Low Tops

Fulton Leather Mid Tops

Street Leather High Tops

Quilted High Tops

  16. Hi Amber! I’ve followed your blog for over a year now and I’ve always loved the layout of it. (As well as all that goes on in it, of course!) I was wondering what you use to make it look like this, or if you have any recommendations for a new blogger who wants to incorporate photos into their posts! Really any information would be awesome, thanks so much!! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much!! I appreciate that πŸ™‚ And as far as picture layout, my biggest tip is to make sure all the pictures are the same size (so horizontal and vertical pictures will be the same size). I love the look of it. I hope that helps!! πŸ™‚

  17. The pictures of you and Atticus in matching outfits is adorable… He looks like he’s getting so big!

  21. I loved white running shoes when I was younger. So fresh. And when they got dirty it was just proof of how much you’d been through together lmao. I don’t wear sneaker style shoes anymore. Not really my style. You look cute, girl πŸ™‚

  24. Converse seriously are the BEST shoes because you can wear them with so many different things! My daughter has some high top pink ones right now and I am so tempted to get a matching pair. πŸ™‚ You look gorgeous as always Amber! πŸ™‚

    1. I totally agree!! I love them for that very reason πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading Rachel!! xo

  25. My daughter bought me a pink sequins pair for my b-day a few years ago, I LOVE them so much! You guys look uber cute! xoxo

    1. Yay!! How cute!! So glad you got a pair πŸ™‚ What a nice daughter too!

  26. I’ve been rocking the black on black low tops this season! Love it πŸ˜‰

  27. Hey Amber, I am like you, I love my converse chuck tailors. I had a pair of high top ones in white too which I wore down to the ground and asked a friend to get me some low white ones last year when she went to the US as they are cheaper your side of the pond. I love having low ones as it means I can wear them with jeans but also with shorts or denim skirts in the summer and they don’t make your legs look chunky at all. I would love my kids to wear the little ones but having to do the laces on 3 pair of little feet in the morning could be a bit of a battle;)! May have to be for the holiday when we don’t have to rush to school in the morning! Can’t wait to see Rosie Belle wearing a pair of tiny pink ones soon!! <3 Love from London, Julie

    1. Hi Julie!! I am so glad you love your chucks too!! And I agree, I think that is why I love the low ones too, they totally work with a lot more looks. And I don’t blame you for not wanting to lace three kiddos shoes πŸ˜‰ Makes totally sense!! Maybe once they are older enough to tie them on their own haha! Thanks for the comment πŸ™‚

    1. So glad you love chucks too!! πŸ™‚ And yes! I agree, I think I need some pink ones too!

  28. I totally LOVE these looks, especially the leather jacket one, where’s it from?! Just dying over A’s leather jacket and he is just too cute! I’ll bet he entertains everyone all day with his smiles and is one heck of a big brother to that beautiful little angel Rosie. So much love to y’all always xoxo

  29. What stroller is that? I’m in the market for a double. I love how Atticus can ride standing up and your body sort of protects him.

    1. I believe it’s the Bugaboo Bee 3 all black, right Amber? Amber just has the Maxi Cosi carseat on it – you can buy adapters for to click onto the Bee. I have the same carseat but have the Cameleon 3 instead (all black, too – the coolest ;-)…) You just buy the “thing” Atticus is standing on separately, I think. The Bee is awesome for the sidewalks/city!

      1. Yes!! Thanks for the help Maggie!! I agree, I love how easy it is to navigate πŸ™‚ xo

    2. Yes!! It is the Bugaboo Bee 3, he sure loves standing on the board thing. We also have the Bugaboo Kangaroo which I love too πŸ™‚

  30. haha that is the funniest, old ladies are the best!! I am been a chuck believer since middle school, so I am with ya girl, nothing is better!
