Que Bella: Insta-Outfits

In case you missed these on Instagram here are a few outfits I’ve been wearing but never fully photographed.

Embroidered Peasant Top, 8 Petite
Loft Distressed Boyfriend Jeans, 6/28
Converse Shoreline in Black, 7 – I have to give some mad love to these shoes. These are not your regular laced low-top Classic Converse. These have a little elastic in the back at the heel so you can slip them on. Or step on them and wear them as mules if you need to be quick out the door. Also, the laces are short and already tied in a knot so they won’t come un-done. If you’re tired of ballet flats and want some Sneaks GET THESE!!

I bought a White pair towards the end of the Summer and they were on my feet non-stop. Yes, they got dirty but were (and are) so easy to just throw in the wash to whiten them back up. Then I found out there was a Gray color and I searched high-and-low for them but never could find my size. So I settled on the Black color. That was until I received a F&F coupon to Converse and found out you can MAKE.YOUR.OWN! For only $70!!! My coupon was 30% off and usually those don’t apply to the Custom or Nike ID but it did this time. (Are you reading this S?) So now I have my Gray pair. I regret it now but did not add an ID to it. You can customize the entire shoe down to the interior lining (I added little black polka dots) and laces (gray instead of white). (Shout out to Ema too who loves her laced Converse. I know you were complaining about your laces.)

Here are they Gray ones I created along with a pair of The Boy’s many Nikes.

My Bundled Bella post was just the start of several days of bundling. Here are the other two days, one blue, one black.
Perfect Shirt in Navy Check, 8 (current one in Striped)
Tippi Sweater in Houndstooth, Medium
Cashmere Plaid Scarf in Blue/Gray Plaid
I was wearing my Matchstick Cords in Sea Salt which I wore again the next day. (Nobody saw me.)

Crinkle Boy Shirt in Black Check, 8
Merino Fair Isle Sweater in Black, Medium
Cashmere Double-Faced Plaid Scarf
Excursion Vest in Black (last year), Small

Yup, the Matchstick in Sea Salt and my Harper Leather Boots. The purse is Michael Kors I found at TJ Maxx. It’s small enough but big enough, YKWIM?

I have a few more Insta-Outfits coming soon.

Have a Great Day!

    Hi Audrey – I love your Converse! I have a low pair that were a dusky purple when I bought them many years ago… they faded to a nice grey but now that they're falling apart I've been on the lookout for a grey pair. I had no idea you can make your own and I've never seen the Shoreline model. They look great! That bunching at the back doesn't bug your heels/Achillies?

      Silver-Lining – I am very picky about elastic on clothing. I have not bought something because the elastic on the sleeves are too tight. These don't bother me at all. Which is great because they don't slip off at all. I take my normal size 7 in these and go down a half size in the regular Cons. I am trying to decide on my next color combo for these.

    Cute outfits. So glad the boy is ok. My eldest will be driving by summer-holding my breath for that milestone.

      JulieStyles – Thanks. I think most of my gray hairs have come from when The Boy turned 16. Good Luck! One thing we did to monitor his driving was out in a tracker. We got it from our insurance company, USAA, and you get texts messages based on settings you've established. Things like harsh-braking, speeding, driving out-of-area, etc. It's only compatible with certain cars but I know it's given us some peace of mind. The texts all come 30-60 minutes after the event occurs. Not sure what other insurance companies offer this but worth looking in to.

    Thanks for the tip! I will look into the tracker. He's very responsible, but the first year of driving is scary.
