American Girl


Hey guys! How was your weekend? I took a couple days to unplug and not really be on my phone or computer. Sometime’s it’s nice to have a little break 🙂 We did some deep cleaning – I love the feeling of dejunking! You with me?? And I actually cooked a meal haha, I don’t cook dinner too often, we eat out a lot, but I was feeling more ambitious with our freshly clean house!

Sneakers with dresses is one of my favorite looks – it’s the perfect balance of feminine and boyish. If it’s a combination you haven’t tried yet, start with the basics: Converse and chambray.  You can’t go wrong with a slight twist on the timeless denim and sneakers look, just swap out your jeans for a chambray dress. I love the shift silhouette of this one.  Converse are usually a great shoe to start with – they are sleeker than a lot of other athletic sneakers (which are still a great look with a dress, in my opinion!) so it’s an easy step in the right direction.

The best part about mixing the dressy and casual elements is it gives you more options when accessorizing – you can take it more sophisticated or boyish depending on the occasion. For more of a menswear look, I love the finishing effect of a baseball hat for a classic all-american look that’s perfect for your end of summer BBQs or baseball games.  Rock a minimalist look or add a feminine silhouette by tying a boyfriend button down around your waist.

    I love sneakers with dresses and you pull this off amazingly! And yes, dejunking and deep cleaning always feel so good when you are done, but actually doing it isn’t my favorite ha!

    You don’t have to twist my arm! I love converse and shirt dresses are a summer staple.

    Weird question, but I’ve found my converse dig into the tops of my feet when I wear them barefoot – do you usually wear socks with yours?!
