I am not one to be sentimental over things, it is a curse and a blessing. It wasn’t until I had children, that I began to become sentimental. The smell of a softener that I used when I washed babies first clothes in, a pair of first socks, were their feet ever that small!! and a pair of Cons, I treated myself to after giving birth to our third child. These said ‘Cons’ have sadly disintegrated and reluctantly was going to chuck them out, until I was stopped in my tracks by a memory. It came like a lightening bolt and holding those shoes in my hands I was reminded of how I felt when I put on these cons for the first time. Our third child was only 2 weeks old and Richard wanted to take us to the local pub for dinner. It was going to be the be my first outing still recovering from major surgery, the first Pram outing and of course with baby Louis. So, these Cons are so special to me because of the many firsts I have had in them!. Alas, they have had their day, and I needed a new pair. I scoured the internet and found nearly the same on SALE at La Redoute. I know in times past I moan about La Redoute delivery times, but because I wasn’t in a hurry and it was a Bargain price I was willing to wait.
The Converse All Stars Hi Tops are one of my favorite trainers. You can wear them pretty much every outfit and yes I have worn them under a ball gown before now, because they are so versatile and comfy. Today is a perfect example of this, White shirt knotted around the waist and a black maxi skirt is all you need. I find Maxi skirts difficult to wear at the best of times, but sling on a pair of Cons and instantly transforms your whole look. Definitely a must for any Capsule Wardrobe.
