I wrote here that during the week, I am dolled up and dressed to the tee. I wear dresses, skirts, and all things feminine Monday through Friday. I might slip one day (usually Friday) and dress down, wearing a pair of boyfriend jeans or an oversized sweatshirt, but for the most part, I dress the part of a lady, a very cool lady. But what I didn’t mention is that many times I pair my super feminine ensembles with my Converse’s. Yep, that’s right, Converse’s. Not new Converse’s either. My Converse’s are 5 years old and I bought them while waitressing at my dad’s restaurant in college. They’re beat up and have been through many waitressing shifts, shopping trips, and aimless trips to and fro. I even wore them to my dad’s wedding last year (click here to see). Heels or a cute pair of flats would pair well with each one of my girly outfits but they’re an obvious choice. Sometimes I need to add a little personality and flair to my look and this does such that.
My Converse’s are what make me well… me. It’s my style, it’s Maddie (no, my name is not Madalynne). Do you have a similar styling characteristic that makes you… you? Maybe you can pull of the sneaker and dress/skirt combo just as I can. Or maybe you have a signature way of tying a scarf or pinning your hair up? What is your signature style or look?
