Ancient Ruins

Ever had a pair of shoes that you absolutely love? How about a pair of chucks? 
These were my babies. I wore them for the last four years of high school none stop, they braved the worst winter storms and even a few falls in the lake. My mom finally convinced me to start a new era, an era where in four years time I will probably be going through the same dilemma. The thing is, they are still great and I probably won't get rid of them. They are the perfect roughed up shoe, that will make any outfit look a little rock and roll. 
 I love the contrast in these photos, there colour difference seems to mean so much more then just two opposite shoes. Old and new, young and old. Very beautiful in it's own quirky way. 
Yesterday was my birthday! I will be MIA from the blog for a few more days while I go a fun birthday trip this coming week. More pictures from my special day coming soon :) 


  1. Dang, a huge difference hahaha! But those are some really loved shoes it seems :)

  2. A good pair of converse is really hard to let go!! I have my fav pair too, and will probably be wearing them for a next few years)) Happy birthday, btw. I hope you have on your trip, and can't wait to see the pictures! xo


  3. Very cool shoes! Converse are awesome! I dont own any converse anymore, I tend to wear flats mostly!
    If you have a free moment I would so appreciate if you could check out my new post!

  5. Great post! I've always loved how Converse wear over time. I get so attached that I don't want to buy another pair, but once the holes in the soles make my feet hurt I know it's time to start anew.

  6. hahah aw super cute post. i actually like the look of beaten in chucks more than new ones- but dang, it sounds like you had them fooorever. here's too many new memories in these :)

  7. My white converse are so worn out that ive been needing a new pair also. I kind of like them a bit scruffed up though.


  8. hahahaha this reminds me of my shoes. my white chucks look exactly the same as your old ones. I need a replacement too.

    oh and thanks soo much for your comment on my blog. I really appreciate it!


  9. I know the feeling! However, it helps a lot when you wash your Converses in the washing machine when things get out of hand, my white ones look brand new again :)


Thank you for your comments! I read, cherish and will try to respond to every single one!
