Converse Chuck II









I’m not sure if it’s the weather, the fact that it’s suddenly getting dark early in the day or just the general “too-tired-to-think-about-what-to-wear” feeling that’s overtaken my life for the last couple of weeks (it turns out commuter life is not the one for me…) but lately it seems like my wardrobe has become completely overtaken by shades of black and grey. I’ve been slouching from one day to the next in oversized shapes and textured layers of black. To be honest it’s got to the point where I’m not sure if it’s a “look” or just pure laziness!

Either way, when I was lucky enough to get a pair of the new Converse Chuck II’s from JD Sports, they fitted perfectly into my new monochrome wardrobe and my commuter lifestyle! They’re super comfy (the only downside of the usual Converse Chucks) with padding in the soles and fitted tops and I love the simple black and white design with thick soles to add a bit of an edge.

If I’m wearing trainers, I like to balance the rest of my outfit with something more polished for a casual-meets-chic kind of vibe (although I gotta say it’s not really working in these photos thanks to my bed head hair – I can’t wait to get a haircut)! In this look, I went for plenty of soft tailoring in the form of this gorgeous Oasis duster coat, but also this amazing Ralph Lauren bucket bag that is the latest addition to my handbag collection! It’s such a classic style and just the right size for all my essentials, plus I love the sturdy leather feel of it and glossy black texture. It’s definitely one of those timeless pieces that goes with anything and everything and will last forever too! It’s perfect for this slouchy-meets-chic look, blending the high quality leather with a more relaxed boho bag-shape. I love it!

What do you think of today’s look? I promise once I stop having to commute every day (and being so damn tired all the time…) I’ll be back to my usual self when it comes to posting regularly and wearing some outfits that aren’t just all-black! Bring on my moving day this weekend, eeeeep!
