This year, I’ve stepped outside my box quite a few times.
First there were those jogger pants (I blame you, Liyana). Then that thing with jumpsuits which occurred here, here and here (all thanks to Annie). And now, my second time with sneakers. I must admit it’s rather gratifying that we can pull on a pair of sneakers with just about anything and (usually) be considered on trend and, gasp, stylish even? Some fads can be fun, huh.
That being said, I don’t quite know when (if ever) I’ll be on that bandwagon for pencil skirts (I can’t find one that looks halfway decent on me) or for celebrate flats the way some of my peers do. I just can’t. I can, however, relish in wearing sneakers, both in and out of the gym. Sportwear and streetwear have become so intertwined that there’s hardly any difference between the two anymore.
In sadder news, temperatures in Houston have been escalating of late and that makes me very unhappy. I honestly thought I’d have a little bit more time to play with the shaggy and the furry and the layered and the thick.
Instead, I find myself pulling together lightweight pieces for barely cold days. Grrr.
Take for instance this thing that I’m wearing with French words. Makes me feel rather Parisian and chic. But the point I’m trying to make here is that despite being coined as sweater, it’s so lightweight that it couldn’t pass for anything save a long sleeved comfy top.
I suppose you could say it was wishful thinking on my part to pair with that vest with a hoodie (and pockets, baby). This one is much thicker and would go very well with the colder days we saw last week.
What’s an even bigger deal is that this post marks the very first time I’ve worn sneakers for any reason besides working out. I do quite like these, they’re from Adidas and are in that bright, bold Cranberry Fuchsia pink which I adore. I’m not liking the fact that they make me feel every inch of 5 feet tall but that’s alright.
