Trend Alert | Sneakers

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

I'll admit that I am beyond excited about this sneaker trend!  Most days I reach for a girly flat or wedge, but I'm thinking my feet might thank me for adding a fun pair (or two) of sneakers into the mix.  Of course, if you are already a stylish person you were probably doing this without trying to be cool.  I've always been a fan of the classic Chucks and Tretorns.  The other evening  Mr. and I went for a walk.  As usual, I kept on the outfit I was wearing, but switched out my boots for sneakers.  I felt a little dorky putting my running shoes on with my skinny jeans, but as we walked out the door, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror.  The image surprised me!  Not so dorky after all.  So now I'm thinking beyond my usual Chucks and want to delve into some more athletic options.  I really like the playful edge an athletic piece or two lends to the every day outfit while still being feminine.  How about you?
