I have always been that girl that gets really excited to get a new pair of shoes. When I got these white Converse last month it reminded me of going shopping with my mom for school when I was in junior high and high school. When we would go to the shoe store she would let me pick out one pair of new shoes. I remember her always pressing at the tip of the shoe when I tried it on to see if I would have any room to grow, then she would have me walk up and down the aisles to make sure my heels wouldn’t slip out the back. I’ve always loved Converse and have always had a pair in my closet throughout my life. I decided to go with the classic low top white ones since they would go with so many outfits in my closet. You can’t go wrong with white Chuck Taylor’s! 🙂 I’ve also started quite the collection of graphic tees. I’m loving them for Summer! This New York City t-shirt is from Forever 21, and my Native style purse, and customized ripped jeans are also from Forever 21. If you’re insterested in how I distress my own jeans, check out my previous blog posts from February. The flannel I am wearing around my waist is from my husbands closet. His flannels make the perfect oversized sweatshirts for me! Have a beautiful day everyone and thanks for following Karijane.com. PS- Half up hair buns are my jam lately. If you are wanting a quick and easy hairstyle that takes minimal time and effort, give it a try!
I’ve been having a lot of fun styling my new Bed Stu’s that my husband gave me for Christmas. I just can’t get over how comfortable they are and how much they’ve already molded to my feet. I really like styling these oxfords without socks and thought I would have to suffer through a few blisters before being comfortable in them, but I was wrong! Check out their Instagram page @bedstu and their website to see all their amazing handcrafted footwear at www.bedstu.com and read about their story and how they came to be. I love that not a pair of their shoes are made exactly the same and each one looks unique. The name Bed Stu was inspired by a city in New York “Bed Stuy” that reflects the heart of Bed Stu- “genuine, unique, and imperfect.” I’m wearing my Bed Stu’s with my Forever 21 jeans that I distressed myself (see last blog post on DIY distressed jeans), my over sized white tee from Cotton On, a borrowed leather satchel from my husbands closet, my native style print scarf, and my favorite customized brown hat with feathers.
