Keeping it cool with Converse and Rookie USA (WIN!)

I think I say this more than I probably should but my kids are way cooler than I am. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that they are cooler than I’ve ever been… in, like, my whole entire life.

I do think that it’s because kids today have a lot more liberty than we did growing up. I mean, as a kid, I didn’t dare tell my mom what I wanted to eat for supper. You eat what everyone else is eating. Meanwhile, my 5-year-old has decided that he only eats roasted potatoes, pizza, noodles and peanut butter sandwiches. Sometimes all at the same time.

My daughter, on the other hand, has a whole mind of her own (it’s the audacity for me) and enjoys choosing her own outfits, when getting dressed. I mean, when I was a kid, my outfits reflected whatever mood my mom was in. I also didn’t have much influence when it came to persuading my parents to buy me branded clothing. My kids get to shop (online nogals) from the Rookie USA store, and they get their pick of some of the swaggiest brands this side of the ozone layer.

Rookie USA seriously has the best drip for kids. I mean, from Nike to Converse, to Levi’s, it’s literally an online store filled with fabulous clothes for small people. What is this life evens?!

As you may know, I am a yer-huuuuuuge Converse fan. I love my Chucks. In fact, I am getting a dog, just so that I can name him Chuck Taylor. (Was going to get another kid, but my husband says no). I’m a fan, okay.

I am absolutely smitten with all of the rad Converse swag on the Rookie USA website. I especially love the frequent Converse collab’s that will have you swooooning at all the specially designed Converse sneakers, featuring some of your kids most favourite characters. My favorite themes to date has to be the Converse X Pokemon collab, the Converse X Space Jam collab and the current Converse X Peanuts collab.

For the Converse X Peanuts collab, Converse teams up with the iconic comic strip, Peanuts. Cool right?! This limited-edition Chuck Taylor All Star design features Charlie Brown, Snoopy and all the characters you know and love, on the classic canvas. These designs are so special and unique. I mean, I definitely have to get them all!
