Converse Shopping

This blog is slowly turning into “stuff Sadie wants” but bear with me. I’ve had kind of a busy spring that has left little time for baking and other adventures, and I know Carrie has been busy getting the B&C ready to open for the summer. But I’m hoping for more diverse content this summer, so stay tuned!

On that note, I want new converse. Over the past probably five years or so, I’ve had personalized slip on Converse. The first pair was navy blue, and the second pair was grey. After a couple years of wear, they both eventually broke down and got a hole along one of the seams. So now I have my eye on a new customized pair.

This is what I’m thinking:


A mint color, gold eyestays, and a pink stripe on the back where my name goes. I think they’re fresh and fun, but still neutral enough to wear with most weekend outfits.


What do you think?


Favorite Things

Ever since I was a young girl, one of my favorite things to incorporate into my style is my monogram.  Some might think it’s old fashioned or obnoxiously preppy, but not me.  My style isn’t preppy and I grew up around plenty of antiques because my grandparents were dealers back in the day, and I always loved all of the engraved silver.  I must say at this point I’ve grown very attached to my monogram, and if I ever get the opportunity to change my last name, it will certainly be bittersweet, not to mention a reason for me to buy new sheets and towels!

I took a look around my apartment and here’s what I found:

These towels and sheets are from The Company Store.
This was part of a set that I received as a gift, it’s a few years old from The Pottery Barn.  They have some newer bags that are similar.
A pendant that I got from Santa Clause and literally don’t take off.
Some fresh kicks from Nike ID.
And I love my first name too:
I am a complete sucker for personalized stationary, especially when it’s from The Paper Source.
And I’m obsessed with these from Converse.
