It’s happened. Spring has sprung. Finally. I’m ready to bust out those my spring sneakers, namely my new white Stan Smith sneakers that I finally got my hands on. This particular pair is a women’s style they actually fit smaller feet. Whereas the “regular” Stan Smith sneakers only came in men’s sizing. Happy? Yes!
One of my other favorite purchases over the last few months is this sleeveless mockneck tank. I’ve been looking for one for a while, but I settled on this particular one from Aritzia as it appears to be good quality but didn’t break my budget. I was trying to wait patiently on this Theory one, but it was either sold out or the price wasn’t right. There is also an H&M version that I liked, but I couldn’t snag it in my size. This tank goes with pretty much everything, so I’m pretty excited about it. I paired it with a stretchy skirt and this long trench with sneakers for a fun, casual look.
We still have a little time before spring arrives, but this super mild weather already has me thinking about spring outfits. Namely, sneakers. This sneaker trend that’s being hanging around the last few seasons is bringing me back to my high school days where we would all change into our cool kicks between class and after school so that we’d stand out from the crowd despite wearing those Catholic school uniforms we would tire of, and hey, may be even try to rebel against authority. Usually, the idea that of reverting back to a “trend” that I took part in 10 or 20 years ago would deter me from trying it again, but I’m totally down with this.
So here a few pairs that I’ve been seeing around the inter-webs that I’m considering adding to my shoe wardrobe:
And how can you possibly argue with the comfort factor? The Nike Free 4.0 is actually my favorite shoe to work out in. They are light, with minimalist cushioning and they look great. Because let’s be honest, if you’re a runner, you know that running shoes that fit aren’t always the prettiest. But these, I’d be more than happy to wear to the gym and to grab a cup of coffee!
I didn’t think I would ever give in to wearing joggers, but the more that I saw them online, the more I was willing to try them. They are a great alternative to that weekend denim. And like denim (and well, everything else), not all joggers are created equal.
I like these particular joggers for the light to mid-weight cotton/canvas material, oversized pockets, and wide elasticized cuff while not running overly large in the width. They run a bit large, so they are sagging a bit on me here, but even so, the length works well on a petite such as myself. And actually, would look even better if it sat a bit higher on the ankle on someone taller like the model.
I have yet to meet a jogger I would be comfortable wearing to work, however, despite their casual nature, they pair well with everything from oversized sweaters to button-downs to simple tees. I already wore the heck out of these during the holidays, and when spring and summer rolls around, I can guarantee they will be one of my go-tos for off-duty wear.
