When I was a teenager, my footwear of choice was always Converse. I had bright ones, plain ones, printed ones, even tie dye ones, but for some unknown reason I stopped wearing them a few years ago, and moved on to boots and heels. But all that changed when I spotted this pair of beauties on the John Lewis website…
This particular pair of Hi-Tops are a new style, and are made of soft black suede, so they’re a bit warmer and a bit thicker, but just as comfortable and casual as their canvas counterparts. They also feel really soft and luxurious to the touch. What first drew me to them was the all over polka dot print as I’m crazy about polka dots, and I love the combination of large and small silver dots. The grey laces are also a nice touch, as they blend in better than the usual glaringly white laces.
I’ve worn these almost every day this week, and I’ve had a lot of fun styling them in different ways. One day I wore them with jeans and a jumper, another day with a skater dress and leggings, and yesterday with a somewhat smarter dress, and they looked great with everything. That’s the beauty of Converse… They’re just so versatile!
I’ve well and truly fallen back in love with Converse All Stars, and I’m looking forward to wearing my polka dot pretties all Spring long. I have a new black mini skirt that I can’t wait to pair them with! You can find these and many other Converse styles online at John Lewis.

Think of UGG boots and the classic short chestnut boots probably come to mind, but as I discovered when browsing the John Lewis website recently, UGG actually have a much wider range of boots and shoes that would suit a variety of looks and styles, both for day and night. Two particular pairs of boots from the range caught my eye – Maddie and Dandylion – so I’ve put together two on-trend looks to show how versatile UGGs can be, and how they could be worn this season.
The monochrome look of UGG’s Maddie Boots inspired this casual, daytime look. White on black always screams skulls and skeletons to me, so I teamed an oversized skeleton tee and skull satchel with a pair of staple black leggings, and a long fluffy cardigan which is perfect for this Autumn/Winter.
The boots are made of suede and lined with faux fur, so they’d be really cosy and warm. I also love the biker buckle detail on the side.
UGG boots are usually considered more of a casual type of footwear, but these gorgeous Dandylion Ankle Boots could easily be dressed up for an evening meal out, or even a work Christmas party. I really wanted the boots to be the highlight of this outfit, so I chose a simple but classy silk tunic dress to go with them. Throw on a pair of black tights, a black shoulder bag and a statement necklace and you’re good to go!
I absolutely adore the shape of these Dandylions. The heel, rounded toe and curved folded top are just so elegant. I want them!
How would you style a pair of UGG boots?
