the study of bright pink chuck taylor all star sneakers

20 May

Bright pink Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.

I started collecting Chuck’s a few years ago and have them in a half-dozen colors at this point.  I love them.  They are my ultimate casual shoe.  And today? Today is casual Friday.  Chuck’s it is!  This weekend will be spent in Redrock country, and I can’t wait to see a little sunshine (it’s been raining for 5 days, which is exactly 4.5 days longer than I remember it ever raining here).

the study of navy blue Converse Chuck Taylor’s

4 Dec


 Navy blue Chuck Taylor’s from Converse.  Saturday’s in December are always a little crazy and today is no exception.  Grocery, mall, play with niece, movie…and it’s hardly noon yet!  Gotta love Chucks, I want them in every color.  (Current count is yellow, pink, navy blue, red and plaid.)

Mustard yellow, shoelace-less Converse All-Star Chuck Taylor’s, perfectly distressed and exactly what I needed to combat Friday.  A few years ago I was dating a guy who loved Chuck’s and I purchased several pairs while we were together.  These slightly scuffed absolutely loved ones were actually from the men’s department–in the U.S. that means you order 2 sizes smaller than you are in women’s (I’m a size 10 and these are size 8 in men’s).  I should point out, they came without shoelaces, there is a bit of elastic behind the tongue to help them stay on; I love that they are slip-ons and I love the yellow color. If I’m going to wear flats (which, if you’ve been here for any time at all you realize I don’t do often) I want them to make me smile.

Happy Friday!
