WhatIWore: In honor of the sun shining and our awesome forecast for the next couple of days, I’m officially moving in my spring closet! I’ll still keep some transition pieces out (like this light gray wool coat), but pastels, neons and florals are calling my name! I finally went ahead and bought the J.Crew top I’m wearing today after thinking about it for a while (and actually went for something in the same color that was on sale instead of my original pick). Pssst. Use code HAPPYSHOPPING to save 25% off!
WhatIWore: Inspired by my Retro Sneaker board, I decided to give the look a try for myself! One key element that made it work for me: Keep it sporty overall. I tried a few different everyday blouses and jackets but they looked disconnected. It’s also key to go with a fitted pant instead of something baggy, like sweats. I like a ponte knit pant which is much thicker knit than a workout legging and a little more dressed up. Aim to balance proportions with a longer top or puffy coat!
WhatIWore: I’ve always had a thing for retro looking sneakers. In college I had a pair of bright pink Saucony’s (kind of like these) and later extended my collection to a pair of green suede steppers (that I found at Wal-Mart!) and a pair of pale pink and taupe Pumas. I really really like funky sneakers.
It makes me so happy that the sneaker trend is in for spring, so I’ve rounded up some images of fashion forward women rocking their tennies in a modern way. I’ve also searched for some of, what I think, are the coolest options out there. If you’re interested in getting more info on the pairs featured in the collage above, just click the black box!
A little secret… 6pm.com has a lot of funky styles that are significantly less expensive than other places I’ve found! You can also check out more ways to wear them under my Retro Sneakers, Modern Look board on Pinterest!
