My husband and I are celebrating 20 years of marriage this month. Twenty years!! It’s crazy to think about, because at times we feel like we’re still just a couple of kids trying to figure this thing called life out. On top of celebrating 20 years of marriage, we’re getting ready to send off our first child to college. Needless to say, 2016 is a big year for us.
Last week, we dropped our daughter off at her college orientation and then went down the road about 10 miles to stay at the cutest cottage for a few days. It was our chance to get away, relax and celebrate an anniversary that meant a great deal to us. Since we would be doing a lot of walking and exploring the town, comfortable shoes were a must. I knew my white Chuck Taylor Converse that I ordered from Famous Footwear were the perfect shoe to bring and plan my outfits around.

Converse Outfit Ideas for Traveling
This was our first trip this summer and we’re planning on exploring our own city of Austin, TX for the rest. We may take a spur of the moment trip out of state, but who knows! I do know that when I travel, I like to feel both stylish and comfortable. Knowing I have a good shoe and outfits that make me feel confident, are a great way to help me put my best foot forward when out and about exploring a city with the family. It also allows me to pack less when I create several outfits from one pair of shoes, which is always a good thing!
Here are my 3 converse outfit ideas:
Outfit #1 – Black and white striped dress + Converse + Black crossover handbag
The cottage was perfect and relaxing and so was my outfit. I love a simple black and white striped dress and I actually have several of them in different styles. They are great for traveling and the hot temperatures of summer. Not to mention they all look fantastic with white Converse! Does wearing sneakers with a dress freak you out a little? Don’t let it! Try it and you just might find they are your perfect traveling companions.
Outfit #2 – Boyfriend jeans + Gray t-shirt + Converse + Baseball cap
The cottage we stayed at was located on a horse farm, so I knew I needed some appropriate attire to walk around and explore the land. It was such a gorgeous setting, with a barn and some horses that were quite shy – meaning they didn’t show up for my photo shoot. 😉
Outfit #3: Chambray dress + Converse + Fringe handbag
You know how I mentioned I have several black and white striped dresses? Well, I have even more chambray dresses. My daughter thinks I have a problem. Ha! My problem is that I just love chambray dresses because they are so versatile. I can wear them all year round here in Texas, only needing to switch out my footwear and for the colder months, throw on a cardigan. I thought this dress was a great match with my Converse and it ended up being the perfect outfit for exploring the city we were in.
Do you feel confident when it comes to packing for a trip? I recommend starting with the footwear you know you’ll need and then create your outfits around those. What are your top shoe picks for travel that help you put your best foot forward? Let me know in the comment section below!

20 years of marriage–life goals right there! My husband and I have been married for 3 so far. : ) Not that far behind! I love your pairings here. White sneakers are my favorite currently!
Thank you Madeline! We can hardly believe it ourselves. 🙂
Congratulations on the big anniversary! I LOVE to wear my white converses with tee-shirt dresses! Definitely one of my favorite “mom” looks during the summer!
Thanks Logan! I could live in them!
How cute! I especially love the way they look with jeans. You know, I’ve never actually worn converse! That definitely needs to change. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sam! This is my first pair and I have no idea why I haven’t purchased any before. Thanks for stopping by!
Aw, so cute.
I love sneakers with dresses, I need to rock that more often. Love the stripes.. my favorite is the jeans and ball cap look!! 🙂
Congratulations on 20 years and you’ll have to hold my hand when I send my baby off to college. We’re still in grade school so awhile, but really it goes by so fast.
I’ll be there for you! 🙂 Thank you Andrea!
That black and white dress is so cute!!! I live in my boyfriend jeans and converse shoes, but you have inspired me to try and dress it up a little bit! Thanks!
That’s great Maya! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
In love with all three outfits and easy comfortable shoes are added bonus
All of these looks are so fabulous! I adore wearing converse with dresses!
Thank you Cassandra! And me too 🙂
Love all three looks!!! My fave is the denim dress!! xo
Thanks Ruthie! The dress is so comfortable. 🙂
Love all the three looks and I am a sucker for white chucks!
I am too!
These shoes are versatile you can wear them with a dress or jeans.
They sure are!
What a great post! I have the same pair as you and I’m planning on getting as much wear out of them as humanely possible en route on vacation when we go to Yellowstone!
Oh how fun! That’s one place I haven’t visited yet, but I can’t wait to see it someday. Have a great trip!!
So cute! I love all of these looks. I’m obsessed with my navy converse sneakers this summer! And Happy Anniversary too:)
Thanks Chris! 🙂
White converse are my go-to shoes! I love the way you style them in all these different ways!
Thanks! I think they’re my go-to shoes now as well. 🙂
So cute! They really do seem to go with everything!
Such cute and comfy casual looks! I have one pair of navy blue converse and I never wear them. They make my feet look like duck feet. But I love them on everyone else!
Hahaha! They definitely make my feet look larger than most of my shoes. 🙂
I’m going on vacation this summer to Europe and kept thinking converse +dresses! Love that combo…just need to make sure I can walk ALL day in my chucks.
Oh wow! Have fun! Maybe some insoles would be good to look into. But yes, Converse and dresses would be perfect to vacation in Europe. I lived there for awhile and miss it so much!
cute outfit looks with the converse, how about trying keds with a outfit?
I love Keds! Thanks Ben.
What app/technique did you use to make a mood board with all the items you wore? I.e. plain background with items placed side by side?
