Now I see shades of roses Your love, I suppose, is an ocean the ebb and the flow An undertow But I can feel the rogue inside my veins A way to crash the castle we made of sand

I had solid pairs but my favorites I remember were pastel star print and pink flamingo on black canvas print, all before those things came into the sartorial spotlight. And while I haven't been to a Warped Tour in years it will forever be a piece of nostalgia that I cling to.
These days I'm less likely to be caught in flat sneakers wandering vacant lots turned music venues, but when the boyfriend pointed out these leopard Vans I knew it was meant to be. I needed a new casual shoe for weekend errands and these have made their way into my regular footwear rotation. And of course, they go with everything!
