Sneaky Kicks


GASP! I am not wearing heels?! What the heck is going on here?! Yes, indeed, for once, I am wearing sneakers. Typically, only reserved for excercising, but due to recent pops of inspiration (ahem, JCREW) bright kicks seem to be sneaking (you like how I did that?) their way into everyday wardrobe.

Polkadot Top: JCrew | Pants: LOFT | Sweater: GAP | Sneaks: Nike | Necklace: JCrew (similar)  | Bag: Celine (similar Pour La Victoire) | Sunglasses: Anthropologie

Lips: Stila Fiery Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick | Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation | Tarte 12 Hour BB Cream in Fair | MAC Fluidline Eyeliner in Blacktrack | NARS Highlighting Blush in Albatross | Too Faced Bronzer in Chocolate Soleil | Tarte 12 Hour Blush in Exposed | NARS Surabaya Eyeshadow Duo | Benefit They're Real Mascara | Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Undereye Eye Brightener | Benefit Gimme Brow


I admit, being 5'2*, wearing sneakers is a little scary. Why? Because I am barely the size of a real human with heels on, without them, I am child-sized. Yes, I have a complex about it. I had a friend in high school that was about 5'8 and we were inseparable for a period of time. We would always joke that I was the shorter version of her, just like her but squashed down 6 inches. :(

So anyways, when shopping for a new pair of running shoes, I was attracted to these because they are bright red and may perhaps keep me from being hit by a car (which probably wont be able to see me due to my height) when running. Also, they will go with anything and I may just start incorporating them into my weekend wardrobe a little. I said a LITTLE.

Here are a few more sneaks I came across when shopping for my new pair:


What do you think about this trend? In or out?




*Full disclosure, I rounded up and am really 5'1 3/4...

  1. I love colorful sneakers but I'm only really a fan of them with sweats while running, haha. I will say that these are better than those hideous sneaker-wedge things that just make me angry, but I still prefer a nice heel! You pull this off though :)

  2. I love bright sneakers! My latest pair is black with bright blue and purple accents... I've never worn them with a "nice" outfit like this though... I might have to try it! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  4. I love that sneaks are having a moment! I've got my eyes on a pair of vintage nikes or some neutral new balances.
