my style

Downtown Cozy.

January 6, 2015

One classic item I highly recommend all of you to get is a pair of black high top Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers.  They’re sooo good and so inexpensive.

At first, I was all about the white ones because the dirtier they got, the cooler they looked, but the black high top ones are just on a different level. Sometimes buying classic items doesn’t necessarily mean emptying out your bank account. It can be buying inexpensive items like these sneakers to know you got a steal. They literally go with everything. Like no, really they do.

My next inexpensive purchase will be some suede navy blue Adidas Campus sneakers!

What will be your inexpensive buy?



These jeans have been on rotation- they have the perfect knee rips. I kinda stocked up on a few colors, oops.

Bad hair day? Easy! Throw it in a low messy bun. Looks so effortless!

  12. Franziska says:

    I'm so sorry but seriously - calling Chuck Taylors an "inexpensive pair of shoes"? Here in Europe, you still pay between 50 and 80 Euros for them, depending on which kind you get. This is not inexpensive - I'm sure it is to you, but please keep your readership in mind.

    • Heidi says:

      Could not agree more!! Same with Adidas sneakers... To me as a student, they are still kind of expensive! :-(

    Love your outfit SO much. You're right the jeans do have the perfect knee rips. I'm looking for a pair of these for ages now. My next inexpensive buy might be Converse snakers as well, but not the high top ones and they should be white (same reason as you explained earlier). Can't wait to wear them in spring to my (hopefully!) new ripped jeans. xx

    I love the look of classic Vans sneakers. They are also inexpensive, come in, like, 100 different colors, and are a style that has stood the test of time. Bonus that they look as cute with jeans as they do with shorts, so they can be worn year round! XO
