ridin' the Converse wave {surfdome review}

Though I tend to fall more into the 5-inches and up category nowadays;
Converse sneaks were my primary form of kicks
back in the day. We're talking the All Star Hi version, of which I owned
a barrage of confectionery colors from green to pink - shades
sweet enough to make a candy store swoon.

Being that spring is upon us, and summer isn't far off; when
Surfdome offered me the chance to review one of
their pieces, I made a virtual beeline for the trainers section; which is how
I became the proud parent of a pair of Converse All Star Ox
Shoes in Optical White
.
This is my first time owning a lo-top pair of Converse, and I. am. smitten.
They have an incredibly understated, beachy vibe to them that pairs
perfectly with crop tops and cutoff denim shorts {two of my
summer staples}; but look just as charming coupled with printed rompers
or casual sundresses. I've taken to pairing them with
ballet attire on my way to-and-from dance class - when I'm seeking
complete comfort - precisely what these deliver.

Sneaks aside... Surfdome itself is kind of, well, epic in
a shop-for-your-entire-family-for-any-occasion type of way.
Men, women, boy, girl, infant...
snow, surf, wake, skate...
they carry brands {Roxy, G-Star Raw, Quiksilver}, and musts for
all of the above {and then some}. Truth be told...
I kind of desperately want to raid their Playsuit section
{they would look adorbs with my new Converse, after all -
talk about summertime cute!

These look so fun for summer. I have a friend at work who would never wear anything but Converse. She has them in all colors, but white.

My hubby has been obsessed with sneakers lately, so I've been spending a lot of time surrounded by them. Wouldn't you know, when he asked me which ones I liked for myself, I picked the very ones you are modeling! Great minds think alike!
