Converse Sneakers Week: Sporty Meets Feminine

Yesterday I paired my favorite Converse sneakers with stripes and distressed jeans, a go-to weekend look for me lately. Another look I love is pairing sneakers with a skirt or a dress, which instantly adds a sporty element to an otherwise feminine look.

I like the sporty trend, but for me, it only works in small doses. Sneakers here, a baseball tee there, but anything more than that and it just doesn’t look like me. I’m definitely more spectator than ball player, so I want a look that says “Let’s go watch some baseball,” and not “Throw her the baseball.” I had a very short-lived stint on a softball team with friends; I’m pretty sure I hit the ball one time. That’s a TOTAL of one time for the whole season. I got so excited about it when I did hit it that I tripped and fell on my way to first base and of course got tagged out. Good times.

What’s your favorite way to incorporate the sporty trend into your style?

Project: Food Budget

I'll also be linking up on Friday to Project Food Budget at Emily Levenson. Since her posts (and the rest of the group) are on Tuesdays, I wanted to share a little today about why I decided to join in case anyone wanders over here from PFB. I'm late to join AND not posting on the right day... quite a departure from my usual rule-following ways. Anyway, I'm joining Project Food Budget because budgeting in general is a big part of my life (like it or not) and every week I push myself to stay on-budget at the grocery store. Friday I'll share my menu and how I did this week when it comes to spending. Thanks Emily for including me despite my rebellious ways! :)
