New Kicks

May 18, 2015

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Russ and I went to see my niece in her first ever ballet recital. Let me tell you, there is nothing cuter than a bunch of three and four year old kids doing ballet. It was so much fun!

I’ve been loving the sporty trend lately. All the awesome sneakers people are wearing are just too fun. I won’t lie, I’ve been wanting a pair since I saw Damsel in Dior and Hello Fashion making them look so cool. I mean, when fashion says comfy shoes are in, who doesn’t want to be involved in that trend? Thankfully I found the perfect New Balance 696 model at KicksUSA in this fun vintage reddish/pink and blue color. KicksUSA has multiple New Balance and Nike options to choose from though, so be sure to check them out. Have you hopped on the sneaker bandwagon?

    I saw someone buy the exact same pair at a shoe store in Pasadena last weekend. I was looking at it too and let out an I-promised-not-to-get-anything sigh. Haha! The pair is really cute though!

    I have seen people sporting these lately as well and I have been debating them! I love my converse and live in them when I can. I remember this was in when I was in junior high/ high school, so I find it funny that it has come back around! Love the shoes you chose and how you styled them! I love that top and you are rocking the white denim!

    Even though sneakers make me think of bad P.E. class experiences, style wise, I’m all for them! Especially with a pared down casual outfit. And those jeans!

    Love those sneakers!! You look gorgeous. I need to get a pair of stylish sneakers, especially since wearing heels will be more and more difficult over the next number of weeks haha.
