I’ve been tired all week long because I’ve been burning the midnight oil just trying to
make sure I get everything done.
Well, one night I was trying to finish up a blog post, and Carter asked me to come get in our bed with him while he watched a movie.
So I did.
And then I proceeded to fall asleep like 20 times before finishing the post.
The next morning my hubby texted me this picture with the following message:
“Just another day at the Pinterest Told Me To offices.”
He thinks he’s so clever. 😉
So, today’s post is about MY NEW CONVERSE!
Until about a month ago, I never owned (or even had the desire to own) a pair of Converse.
I liked them on other people, I just never really wanted them for myself.
And then I continued to see them out in blog land and on Pinterest.
And slowly but surely, all of the images started to creep into my head.
And all of a sudden, I COULD NOT LIVE ANOTHER DAY without a pair.
Pinterest’s message to get a pair of Converse was loud and clear.
And I think we’ve learned that when Pinterest talks, I listen.
That’s another phrase that should be needelpointed on a pillow for me.
Or at the very least slapped on a bumpersticker.
So, when Pinterest spoke to me this time, her message was simple:
BUY AND WEAR CONVERSE
So I did.
And I have.
And I’m LOVING them.
Go ahead and put another one on the board for Pinterest.
I want to share with you some of my favorite inspiration photos I found that convinced me that I needed some Converse for myself.
Pinterest is MIGHTY convincing.
MY WORD is she pushy.
HOW CUTE ARE ALL OF THESE GIRLS IN THEIR CONVERSE?
All of those images are pretty convincing!
They all have this cool and laid back (BUT SUPER CUTE AT THE SAME TIME) vibe.
Which is pretty much the look that I’m going for most of the time. 🙂
And look at these looks with some dark converse.
Totally DYING over that look on the far left. How darling is she?!
And I never in a million years would have thought I would be a fan of the black ones. But I am.
I totally am!
So…I bought some with some Christmas money. Merry Christmas to ME!
I guess because I didn’t have anything in my closet like this prior to ordering I was extra excited about receiving them. I mean really, the excitement level was off the charts.
Click HERE for the exact Converse that I got from Nordstrom.
*A reader just told me there is only 1 size left at Nordstrom, but that Zappos has
them HERE (and on sale!)
These are more expensive than the normal converse, but I liked the red stripe.
Make sure you order a 1/2 size down.
I’m a 6-6 1/2 depending on the shoe, and I ordered a 5 1/2 in these!
There are only 4 sizes left of the exact converse I ordered, but there are LOTS left of the other basic women’s converse.
Click HERE for all women’s converse in lots of different colors!
And here’s the best part, these solid color choices are only $44.95!
I love the grey, the white, and the navy the most.
And actually, I guess I love the back too after seeing them styled on Pinterest.
Jeans – check
That’s all you need! If you already have the other 3 pieces, just add in the converse and you’re set!
So here’s a side by side of the looks.
Totally simple, but Totally cute.

Jacket, Milk and Honey – sold out :(, current options from Nordstrom HERE
I’ve had this one on before and loved it! However, the description says lightweight and I would describe it as heavier I think (if I remember correctly). Still, I loved it, and if you are looking for warmth too, this one would be a great option!
And I HOPE TO HAVE AN AWESOME MILITARY JACKET OPTION FOR YOU LADIES SOMETIME IN THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS! SO STAY TUNED!!!!

you would have told me last year that I would be leading the Converse
crusade I would never have believed it.
BUT THEY ARE SO DANG CUTE AND I
LOVE WEARING THEM!
So sad I’m just now adding them to my closet!
Before you go…..
I got a facebook message from a reader yesterday (Thanks Maureen!) about THIS cardigan.
These 2 color combos went 40% off!
I have no doubt they are going to go fast. I have had many messages about this sweater (I’ve highlighted it before) and each message I received was very positive.
People that bought this LOVE this.
Click HERE for this cardi.
There are no reviews for these two, but click HERE to see other colors (that aren’t on sale), but that do have reviews attached to them.
I want you girls to know that I’ve been working closely with Goodnight Macaroon (and exchanging TONS of e-mails each day). They are doing soooooo many things behind the scenes to make your shopping experience with them the most positive experience it can be!
They just added a REVIEW tab that I am so excited about!
I know that reviews really help us to decide on purchases, and they especially help with sizing questions for people. So, you can now find a blue “REVIEW” tab down the left hand side of the screen that I know we will all start using. I went ahead and kicked it off by writing a glowing recommendation for the puffer vest!
Oooh! And listen to this! After 14 days you will receive an e-mail from Goodnight Macaroon reminding you to leave a review. And if you do, you will receive a 20% discount code!!!
I also told them about a specific item that I want to see in the next couple of months, and their design team is working on something. HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?
And they read all of your comments and realized that some of you were wishing for some larger sizes. So, guess what? They are going to be adding some larger sizes!
They are also going to let me have a little bit of input into what items go on Flash Sale! So, if you missed using my code, or if there are certain items that you are DYING to get, let me know (just leave it in the comments section) and I’ll see what I can do!
But I also really love THIS.
Looks like it could be long enough for leggings.
Also, if you shopped the LOFT sale yesterday, then please disregard the following.
BUT since the sale is still going on, I wanted to make sure I put the info. out here again
in case you missed it!
LOFT is 40% off EVERYTHING.
EV-UH-REE-THING with code GET40.
Except if it’s already on sale…and then it’s an additional 60% off. Wowza.
Here are a couple of my favorite things right now.
THIS shirt. You saw it last week.
I loved it then, I love it now.
Love the stripes….love the layer…..love everything.
For size reference, I am wearing a medium.
And I am ordering this suit for myself tonight!
Click HERE for the top, click HERE for the bottoms pictured. Click HERE for a bikini bottom.
I love how at LOFT you can buy different sizes for each piece you want.
Click HERE for all swimwear and beach cover ups (LOTS of really great beach options)!
And all of it is 40% off! Somebody hand me my sunscreen. And a pina colada.
And while you’re at it…get me some MOTIVATION to start my program today!
Don’t you love the details of THIS shirt?
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
And how could you not love these accessories and shoes? Again, all 40% off
And don’t forget you can click HERE to scan thru the sale items that are an additional 60% off!
AND don’t forget to enter the contest for the Bauble Bar necklace and gift card.
Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post!
Check out my new necklace from Bauble Bar!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Click HERE for the necklace.
It looks great with my black shirt and jeans.
It would look great with a little black dress.
But I also think it would look AWESOME with some frayed jean shorts and a white v-neck.
Or a denim shirt with white jeans.
Or colored shorts with a striped shirt.
So what I guess I’m saying is that it will pretty much look fantastic
with anything and everything in your closet. And what a great thing to
kick off your spring wardrobe!
And yes…for those of you that are wondering….
I am still wearing THE HECK out of my black MUST HAVE shirt.
I’ve probably worn it once a week since I bought it in July (and sometimes more than that).
MUST HAVE Shirt HERE
Remember to buy 1 size down. For reference, mine is a small.
