I've always been a lover of Converse all year round and bought my first pair at 15, the typical black and white styled hi-tops. I went on to buy all black hi-tops, pink and purple double tongue lo-tops and red and white lo-tops. You can't get bored of the simple style and fit, offering a more casual alternative to wearing bulky trainers during the warmer months. When I was approached by Fat Buddha Store to have a £20 voucher to purchase something from their store, I leaped at the chance of getting some brighter, whiter Converse for summer.

With a 10% off for new customers, Fat Buddha Store sells products from brands such as Nike, New Balance and Adidas for both men and women. As much as I wanted a pair of New Balance trainers (which remain on my wishlist) I couldn't afford them with the discount as a student, so chose some beautiful white lo-top Converse.

They don't just sell footwear though, Fat Buddha Store also stocks accessories and even spray paint supplies for those budding artists (no pun intended). I was tempted to buy a beanie but getting into hotter weather deterred me and made me opt for a more sensible choice! You can wear Converse with almost anything. I will be taking them on holiday to Spain with me in August to pair with denim shorts or a playsuit when my feet need a break from wearing sandals. As you can see from above, I love wearing them with jeggings and jeans, they even go with my kimono.

I think the white Converse and other bright coloured ones worn with summer dresses look adorable too. Add a flower crown and you're set for summer! They're lightweight so wearing them on a plane is great, or putting them in your suitcase won't take away too many of your kgs of allowance! 

Do you wear Converse?
