Worth the Wait

I’m a total sucker for a stripes, so when Anthropologie started selling this shirt I knew it had to be mine. Well that was many months ago and I’d been patiently waiting for it to go on sale, but Anthro just wasn’t budging. Jerks! I finally caved and bought it for myself, you know, for being awesome;) Saturday, when I craved a simple ensemble of stripes, an easy carry-all cross body, and comfy boots I knew just want pieces to put together, and might I say this shirt was worth the wait!

16 Ways to Wear Converse Sneakers

If you’ve been a long time reader of Fabulously Average then you are well aware that I’m a Converse girl all the way! I’ve always been one to favor the value of a sneaker versus pumps. I wore them way before they became popular on the Internets and well before even hitting puberty. In my adolescent tall girl mind, Converse sneakers were perfect because they didn’t add any additional height;) Excellent logic, I know, but when you’re the tallest girl in your class you avoid heels at all costs. Between my love for the ultimate sneaker, frilly dresses, and sports, Converse essentially helped mold girl meets boy style. 

Today I’ve rounded up some ways I’ve worn Converse on the blog. I’m sure I have a bevy of other posts where I’ve styled my cool kicks but these 16 looks first came to mind. From incorporating the sneakers into my maternity style, to dressing them up with skirts and dress, here are 16 ways to wear Converse sneakers!

Wardrobe Remix Vol.3

A stripe skirt that was on rotation during my pregnancy and even afterwards is one to keep around! It is in my humble belief that you can never have enough stripe skirts, and trust me when I say this is one of many. It’s seen me through 188 pounds (yikes!) and then back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Now that’s a skirt with mileage!

I’ve paired this Target number while preggers, with like colors, and with a military twist. Do you have a favorite?
