The Sneaker Edit : Vans Old Skool 

It’s bring your sister to work day here at Hues of White! My sister is a bad influence, she is obsessed with sneakers (she has the best collection I’ve seen!) and got me into buying some Vans Old Skool, which I admit I never thought I would ever wear. I’ve come to realise as a mum literally on the go that it’s important to have a great pair of sneakers and these Vans are super versatile: I can team them with jeans, a dress or shorts and they totally go. I purchased the Vans Old Skool Hummus Suede (here) and I’m obsessed. I didn’t realise how hard it was to find these in my size, they have sold out everywhere but I managed to find it!  As well as being super comfy they are the prettiest Vans I’ve seen. I would suggest that you buy some suede spray (here) as the only bad  thing about these is that as they will get slightly marked if you don’t look after them (do not wear them in the rain!).

 I’ve teamed it here with an old pair of OneTeaspoon shorts (similar here) and the wardrobe staple white shirt for an LA relaxed feel. My sister is wearing her black and white Old Skool Vans (here) and she’s teamed it with a pair of black ripped skinny jeans (here) and a boyfriend oversized shirt with my ISLA hat (here) from Janessa Leone! I’ve showed you how versatile they are here and they are a classic investment pair of trainers for your wardrobe. These trainers are here to stay and I’m loving the different style Vans have bought in and below are my current favourites from the brand!

    I don’t actually own any vans but they seem pretty handy to own, I should probably get myself some! I am so glad I found your blog by the way, I love finding new blogs like yours to read! x

    I always think of Vans as very clumpy sneakers and as I’m small I don’t think they would suit me. These however and how you have styled them you have somehow made look cool and elegant at the same time. Absolutely love those brown ones 😍
