Yip I’m one of the lucky sods still on holiday, currently typing from the comfort of my lapa sipping on some refreshing soda water. I will admit I am suffering from huge anxiety being on leave for this last week. I only say this because I feel like the rest of the country has a weeks upper hand on getting their shiz together, and I’m here being an oxymoron example of “productive”. I did, however, rope in the new year with fabulous friends, good food and wine, so it’s definitely time for that much-dreaded detox that I have been failing horribly at while still being in vacation mode.
I am so happy to be back on the blog, it feels like forever since I last posted. It also felt good shooting with Tegan again, I had so much fun shooting this look posts. You should notice I am venturing out of my leggings comfort zone and exploring all that skirts have to offer. Its been a few years since I last wore anything else other than leggings, so this was definitely something new and daunting for me to try. I have also adopted a new found love for sneakers, not that I haven’t always loved a good pair of kicks, it’s only now that this love for a variety of sneakers has gone into overdrive. Having said that is the very reason I decided to spoil myself with a crisp pair of Adidas Stan Smiths, which I am now obsessed with. The mere fact that I can pair these beauties with a skirt makes my purchase all the more worth the while.
Having a good staple white sneaker in my opinion, is a MUST have item for your wardrobe any season of the year. They are so easy to style; whether you want to dress them up or down, that is very much achievable with these trendy white signature Stan Smiths. I wanted to base this look around a comfortable daytime feel, so I paired my Stan Smiths with a navy blue stripe maxi skirt, an off the shoulder white top and of course, I finished off the look with my trusty pair of silver aviators. If you wanted to take your Stan Smiths into the evening, I would dress these babies up with a sexy pair of black leather leggings, an off the shoulder black blouse and of course, a red lip.
I’m looking forward to getting back into the grind next week, it’s about time I joined the masses and take on 2016 with poise, style and ambition. I’m ready for a change, which is why I decided to start this change with my style first and foremost, because when you look good, you feel good. My mission is to feel good each day of this year. And if it takes Stan Smiths to do that, then I’m thrilled for my shoe collection to grow tremendously.
