Superstar Me!

adidas superstar shoes, spring 2015

I have been a ballet slipper wearing gal for years but that is about to change.  Sneakers (converse not included) were in my opinion, the accoutrement of athletes (which I am not) and 6 foot tall thin blonde european couples in coordinating beige outfits (of which I am not a part).

I have to admit that I have always considered wearing sneakers in public up there with wearing sweat pants or white socks and sandals.

Has that ever changed! Kanye & Adidas, Rihanna, Isabel Marant…just to name just a few who have changed the fashion game.

One day I woke up and said to myself, I need a long grey coat, wedge high tops and a fabulous small black bag.  Here are my personal inspirations, and the pieces I chose.

1 – Wedge

I love that I get to choose comfort and style, and not one over the other. I love the look and feel of throwing a big coat over a tomboy ensemble.  It’s a chic thrown together look that still looks put together.  I say the chic sneak is required comfort for our busy lives.

P.S. Laces…double tie/tuck them in. Am I right?

  2. I’m a little late for last spring 😳 but I must share nonetheless…

    I used to be so envious of my older sister’s Stan Smith’s. She was so cool for having them, and I so wanted to be cool!

    LOVE the Tomboy Chic!!
