White Sneakers, Marled Joggers and Pops of Color.

I have seen them everywhere, in real life and of course in almost every single fashion blog. I am talking about the Coveted, Stylish, Sporty yet Girly White Chuck Taylors. I wanted a pair so badly. I see them looking cute with almost anything and everything. But they retail at least for 20 more bucks in Europe and that's no bueno! So, I got a very look-alike pair for 14 bucks! I think I made a good decision because I wanted to try them out, I want to wear them till they are all raggy-looking, and then buy the real deal Converse Low-top White Sneakers, when I am back in the States. What do you think, did I make a good/smart decision? And if you have ideas in how to style these as well, tell me on the comments. Thanks.
The first time I wore them was just 2 days ago, on April 14th (which was my lovely Mom's Birthday, by the way). After a long flight and exhausting previous weekend, lack of sleep and such, this comfortable outfit (a day off from work) was what the doctor ordered. I paired them with my Marled/Gray-ish Joggers, my Soft Mint Sweater, my Off-White Fur Vest and added pops of Color through my Floral Scarf and a few different Bracelets that I wore. There is some slight pattern-mixing going on here between the Marled Pants, Floral Scarf and Floral Sunglasses, as well. Of course, I am wearing two of the Top 10 items: Sweater and Scarf while keeping up with "Create 28 Lovely Spring Looks" Challenge. Yesterday's prompt was Sneakers, while the next one is Pattern-Mixing. Actually this outfit covers both, but fear not - I got more Florals and another pair of Sneakers in Tomorrow's Post which is our second week of Budget Babes too, with Rachel and Maria. So, how do you like the very first outfit I created with my White Sneakers?
