It’s true - Vans have played an integral part in every chapter of my life! From rocking my first pair as a baby during our summers in California, to having my very first job as a Vans sales associate and loving every minute that I got to help other people celebrate the Vans lifestyle and community. And now to the present day where I can be found wearing my classics as a part of my daily uniform as a desert dwelling small biz owner, content creator and marketing specialist -- almost 30 years later from the days of rocking my very first pair!

This week I'm thrilled to be partnering with the amazing folks at Vans and Vans Girls to celebrate their 5 classic styles! Today is all about the Authentics, and I'm loving how their classic red adds to my favorite everyday combo of black and white!

Now it's your turn -- show us how you rock your own Vans style by sharing a photo with #MyVans! I'll be back soon with my other four looks, but until then -- what's your Vans story? Have you been rocking them since you were young or did they become your go-to later in life? Favorite style and color? I'm partial to the Authentics, but also love a classic Slip-On! Happy Monday, friends!
