Styling Athletic Shoes for the Unathletic Person

Monday, May 29, 2017

GOOD MORNING! I am SUPER excited for this post because there is a giveaway at the end for all my Canadian readers that's being held on my Instagram. Long story short, Converse launched a Canadian e-commerce website and to celebrate that, I want to give away a free pair of Converse to one of my lovely readers. All the details for how to enter will be at the bottom of the post :) 
If you know me, I'm not an athletic person AT ALL. A while back I received the new Converse Leather Pro LP shoes for their campaign and as much as I love how comfortable they are, figuring out how to style it has been a journey. They are definitely on the more athletic/casual side so it's been fun to try out different outfits so today, I bring you 3 looks on how I've styled them!


 The first outfit is the most casual outfit you'll ever catch me in. Whenever I think of athletic shoes, I think of being super casual. I decided to pair the shoes in a basic way, being a graphic tee, skirt and bandana. I decided to go for a complete black and white look for those minimalistic city vibes!

Outfit Details
Top - Nakd
Skirt - Zara (old)
Scarf - Ardenes
Shoes - Converse


Wearing athletic type of shoes with a maxi pleated skirt is something I wouldn't normally do but in the spirit of street style, I was totally feeling the look and paired it off with a leather jacket! The pink in the sweater adds some interest and since it's fairly chilly this spring season, it's perfect!

Outfit Details
Top - H&M
Jacket - Ardenes
Skirt - Joe Fresh x FLARE (old)
Shoes - Converse


The last outfit is definitely my favourite. I wanted to go for another city vibe outfit. I decided to go for the LEVIs 501 jeans because they are the perfect cut to dress up or down. I wanted it to be half casual and half dressy by having a graphic tee and blazer. The thin scarf was never a trend that I really tried out when it was more in season but I love the effect it adds to the overall outfit!

Outfit Details
Top - Brandy Melville
Blazer - ROMWE
