White Sneakers and Unavoidable Scuffs

Forever 21 Denim Jacket (similar), H&M Striped Crop Top (similar), Roxy Olive Green Pants c/o LuLu*s (similar), Urban Outfitters Textured Mini-Backpack (similar), Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Canvas Sneaker

These Converse sneakers have been on my wish list for an embarrassing amount of time but for some reason I never got around to actually owning a pair. But then I finally grew a pair and went for the purchase even though I knew I had a fear of owning white shoes. I'm not known for taking very good care of most things I own (electronics know they're entering their own personal hell once they enter my hands) but fuck it, I'm an adult, right?

...and then at some point during the two minutes between leaving my apartment and stepping outside the apartment building, during my first test run, there appeared a scuff on the side of my left sneaker.

I was so unbelievably careful to take only the lightest steps and to this day I still can't figure out what scuffed them...but it happened. And it was on my watch. But now I'm too committed and these sneakers are just going to have to accept their ultimate future as soon-to-be brown shoes.

Time's a tickin'.


  1. wow baby, you are so cool. really inlove of your work.

  3. Lovely ensemble Jen particularly the denim and sneakers! White Sneakers are in this season, I actually bought myself a pair. Just like you I had fears on wearing 'em but we just couldn't stop it from getting dirty. hahah! My OC'ness also steps in that every after I use my sneakers I make sure I wipe the dirt with a tissue.

  4. Hahaha this story made me smile! I have white converses too and typically I'm the queen of clean (i.e. why I'm pretty sure I can keep a white couch clean) but I want my converses to be scuffed and worn in but they just can't...I should just send them over to you and you can have at them for me :P

  5. i have fear for white shoes/white shirt/white pants...overall anything white. i'm too scare to wear them as i'm a messy person that will mess up all the whiteness on it. so i don't own anything white yet..and converse shoes in my wishlist too!!
