This is less of a DIY and more of a "just go do this" post. My friend Cassie posted this picture to her Facebook page the other day and I got super excited. She took plain white $10 tennis shoes and turned them into these adorable black and white oxford inspired shoes.
She only used fabric paint to create this completely custom look. It got me excited to try this on my own. Such a simple process for a dramatic difference.
So what do you think? Will you try painting your shoes? Let me know if you are going to try this out!

Hello! Ok in case you couldn't tell, I really like the word "hello." I'm friendly, I like other people to know I'm friendly, so what better way to do that than have a "hello" sweatshirt from Hello Apparel?
I have been a huge fan of this brand for a while. They have the cutest clothes for adults, kids and babies. They offer everything from tank tops to sweatpants to buttons and temporary tattoos. Their kids clothes are some of my favorites. They just get it.
When I was looking at their website I decided to go with the classic "hello" red champ pullover. It's their signature piece and it totally fits with my personality. I know that you're thinking- "Kelcey, it's summer. It's way too hot for a sweatshirt." Wrong! Well, mostly wrong. I will wear this as much as my thermometer allows me until fall then I will wear it every day. Madison and I are hoping to take a mini beach trip this summer and a nice pullover is perfect for cooler nights on the beach.
I paired the pullover with some medium wash jeans, a gold necklace and some tan wedges, to dress things up a bit. I like mixing dressier pieces with more casual ones to create a fun visual juxtaposition.
I love these wedges. They are from Marshall's a few years ago and are so comfy. For someone like myself who is a bit wobbly in heels, these are the perfect option.
When it's too hot to wear a pullover outside, you can find me snuggled up in bed with the A/C blasting. Anything to be comfy and cozy. This sweatshirt is seriously the softest thing ever. It's so comfortable and warm and amazing, and also super great quality.
I highly suggest you go over to Hello Apparel and snag one of these. Come fall I'm pretty sure I won't be wearing anything else.
Thanks to Hello Apparel for sponsoring this post. All opinions and obsession over this pullover are my own.
