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?

    Those sneakers are so cute! The color you chose is really fun and it looks like the perfect match with white and chambray.

    I jumped aboard this style trend a few weeks back too, after being inspired by some of my fave bloggers too!

    I’m loving how sneakers are stylish now, they are perfect when having to run errands and around town with two 10 month olds! I love how you styled your with your white jeans, and obsessed with your denim shirt!

    Oh, yes, I’ve been loving my New Balance maybe way too much. So comfy and looks so stylish. I’m lately all about simple and comfy looks, since weather have been not too kind.

    Love how the colours of your trainers are soft and muted looking. They work so well with the chambray and white. An effortless casual chic!

    Ohh my gosh, love the shoes, and I’ve totally been wanting a pair too. But for some reason my hubby (aka my shopping partner) hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, he doesn’t like them at all and I’m trying to convince him of how beautiful they are!

    Love the kicks! I like how you styled it to dress it up. I never know how to style sneakers without looking like I’m going out for a run.

    Love the entire look. Jacey makes wearing sneaker look so effortless and cool and you’ve pulled it off as well! I took a step with slip on sneakers. I might make another step towards your look soon.

    I’ve hopped on that train a long time ago 😉 I’ve been wearing New Balance sneakers as regular part of my day to day outfits for over 15 years now. Love them. The color combination of your pair is really pretty. I might be due a new pair soon …. hmmm.

    Have a nice week!

    I swear to you at least once a week, I log into Urban Outfitters, scroll through their sneakers, put a pair in my cart and never buy them. I’ve been eyeballing a pair of NB sneaks from them in like forever! I love the pair you have on, they go so perfectly with your chambray and white!

    Aren’t New Balances the best? The fit is just phenomenal! I am still on the hunt for the pastel version but may need to snatch these up too!
