I'm starting to get into wearing sneakers.  Like most of my other fashion choices, they come in waves.  I went through a bootie phase, sandal phase and so on.  I guess I'm onto the sneaker phase.  They are just so much more comfortable to throw on sometimes.  Maybe its that I'm just going back and embracing my tomboy ways.  I'm kind of liking mixing it up and pairing sneakers with more feminine pieces.  Sometimes a floral dress and moto jacket with sneaks just work.

During my search to find new sneakers (my chucks have been on repeat), I starting looking at the usual suspects - Vans, Adidas, Keds, Converse, etc.  I used to love my Adidas back in elementary school.  I remember I had the white with blacks stripes and loved them.  I came across Adidas’ Stan Smith line.  First of all, I have no idea who Stan Smith actually is, but the clean, all-white look with a small pop of color had my name all over it.  They’re so minimal and chic.  Only problem is everywhere I looked, they were no where to be found in smaller sizes.  I think the smallest size they carried was an 8.  A shortly like me can’t fit a size 8!  And as I researched more, I found out they run 1-2 sizes large.

I’m normally a size 6 shoe size so I knew I’d need a 4-5 size.  I somehow stumbled across kids sizes and just my luck all the reviews were from petite women with small shoe sizes!  I ended up ordering a size 4 and the rest is history! And I got them for cheaper since they were kids shoes.  For all you shorties, take note, kids sizes are totally acceptable!

Now let's hope I can keep them clean!

Make a Statement

Statement Necklace and Leather Jacket

i don’t know about you, but sometimes getting dressed during the work week can seem like the most difficult task, ever.  It always seems this is how my morning goes: Wake up late, jump in shower, struggle to decide what to wear, throw something on, continue getting ready, decide you don’t like your outfit, change and repeat.  Sound familiar? Ya, thought so. 

I’d like to share one of my best secrets.  Throw on some skinny black jeans, a plain tee, your go to blazer/jacket and, now here it is, a statement necklace.  Yes, a statement necklace is my secret to pulling a look together and dressing things up a bit.  Otherwise, I feel like a slob wearing a plain t-shirt to work with jeans.  So, grab a great chunky necklace.  It’ll solve all of your morning problems, most of the time.  It’s also a great outfit that can transition from day to night.  So easy!

By the way, I am not usually a heels-wearing type of person, despite the fact that I'm short and should wear heels more often, and these Michael Kors Heels are, literally, the most comfy heels.   I have them in both nude and black. Hope you have a great rest of the week!
