Good morning from Disney World! We flew down yesterday, got settled in at the Grand Floridian, and made it over to the Magic Kingdom in time for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I thought it was going to be hard to get into the Christmas spirit when it’s 85 degrees in November, but the magic is contagious once you’re here. I’ll be sharing the highlights from our trip on Instagram and Facebook, if you want to follow along.
Meanwhile, it’s Day 3 of 25 Days of Fall Fashion!
I’ve been wanting a pair of slip-on sneakers to wear with my more casual outfits, and I’m always drawn to outfits with Converse on Pinterest. But I swear, I’ve tried on Converse about 158 times in the past several years, and every time, I feel like I’m wearing clown shoes. Whenever I confess my Converse issues to someone who has them, they always swear they felt the same way at first, and then they promise me that I will get over it and I’ll love them.
So last weekend, I finally decided to bite the bullet. I was at Nordstrom for their anniversary sale, and I started trying on ALL the Converse. (I also tried on Superga, Keds, and Vans. I’m nothing if not thorough.)
I debated the new Converse II with the cushioned footbed (much more comfy), but they weren’t on sale and they didn’t have my size in stock. I debated white or grey or blue, and I debated which size I should get. There was a lot of debating going on, as my 10-year-old can attest. She was bored out of her gourd.
In the end, I came home with these white Converse Chuck Taylor® ‘Shoreline’ Sneakers that are on sale for $39.98.
I couldn’t wait to wear them so when I realized I had nursery duty on Sunday morning, I decided try an outfit I’d seen on Pinterest — blue jeans, white graphic tee, black moto jacket, and white Converse. I really of wanted to wear a graphic tee, but I don’t currently have a white one. (Hmmm… Must remedy.)
Let’s discuss these jeans for a minute. I’ve had these AG Stilt Cigarette Leg jeans for a few years now, and they used to get a lot of wear. This fall, the DL1961 Emma has become my go-to casual jeans, but for this outfit, I wanted the looser fit of the AG. They retail for $215, but they are currently 25% off at Bloomingdales with the code HOLIDAY. In fact, I got mine a couple years ago at the Bloomies Friends & Family event!
These Mykita Bernhard Willhelm Franz F8 sunglasses are on loan from Eye Heart Shades. They have provided me with an exclusive discount code — JLSHANE15 — that you can use to get 15% off any Eye Heart Shades purchase. I thought the oversized white aviator style was especially cute with this outfit.
The leather cord on the pendant makes it the perfect mix of tough and casual for this outfit. And yes, I realize that I have now worn this necklace for 3 posts in a row. That is exactly how versatile it is! I find myself going for it to complete an outfit time and time again. I really wish I could find something similar to link you to. If you know of something, please let me know!
Isn’t this the perfect Saturday outfit!? I love it.
