OK, TODAY IS ABOUT REVEALING THE REAL EVERYDAY, ORDINARY TRINA . . .
YOU KNOW, THE ONE WHO GROCERY SHOPS, CRAFTS, CLEANS, RUNS A FEW ERRANDS, READS A LITTLE AND THEN MAYBE IF AND WHEN SHE’S LUCKY GETS TO MEET UP WITH SOME FUN FRIENDS FOR LUNCH.
AND, LET’S BE REAL THESE KIND OF DAYS SHE IS NOT GOING TO PUT ON SOME FANCY HIGH HEELS OR SOME OFFICE CHIC OUTFIT, SHE IS MOST LIKELY TO JUST BE REAL.
NOW, I WILL ADMIT I’M NOT THE KIND WHO STAYS IN HER SWEATS OR WORK OUT CLOTHES ALL DAY, BUT I DO LIKE CASUAL AND PRACTICAL.
SO . . .
WHEN THIS SO CALLED NEW TREND STARTING FLOATING AROUND, THE ONE WHERE THE GALS ARE WEARING SNEAKERS WITH EVERDAY OUTFITS . . .
WELL I KIND OF, SORT OF, THOUGHT ABOUT IT.
AND THEN MY CUTE DAUGHTER ACTUALLY BOUGHT SOME OVER THE HOLIDAYS AND WHEN I SNUCK IN AND TRIED THEM ON . . .
I HAD ONE OF THOSE “AHA” MOMENTS
ONE OF THOSE, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME” MOMENTS OF WOW, THESE ARE SO COMFY . . .
AND I FEEL LIKE I COULD RUN AND JUMP AND SKIP, AND BASICALLY GET A WHOLE LOT OF THINGS ACCOMPLISHED WHILE WEARING A PAIR OF THESE.
SO . . .
YES, I RAN (not literally) OVER TO THE MALL AND BOUGHT MY OWN PAIR.
NOW, I’VE HEARD (from my daughter and magazines) IF YOU WEAR THEM WITH YOUR NORMAL SKINNIES (these are my mini’s from jcrew) IT MIGHT BE BEST TO PAIR IT WITH A NICER SWEATER.
Although when I traveled last week to Portland I also paired them with a a mock sweatshirt and vest.
JUST THE OTHER DAY WHEN I KNEW I HAD A LOT TO GET DONE, BUT STILL WANTED TO LOOK A LITTLE CHIC, I PAIRED THEM WITH THIS OUTFIT.
LET ME TELL YOU, MY FEET NEVER GOT SO FAR OR HAD SO MUCH FUN IN ONE DAY . . .
I’M THINKING I KIND OF LIKE THIS NEW TREND . . .
IT FITS THE LIFESTYLE OF KEEPING IT REAL . . .
Shoes : new balance –Nordstroms
Really love the ones jcrew carry (although they always seem to be out of stock)
And if I had a bunch of money to blow I would seriously purchase a pair of these Paul Green Posh Sneakers.
I also tried this trend with my all black nike free runs on my last little get-a-way, worked like a charm. I’ll have to get that post up and going soon.
Any of you fans of this new trend?
You should definitely take a peak at how Adrienne over at Rich Life on a Budget shows her version of this trend. Now that is “sneaker chic”
