Yes, I’m the gal constantly in jeans and sneakers…I’ll happily confess. However, as the cloudy skies finally part here in Seattle, I’m choosing to ditch my denim in favor of skirts and dresses. I’m not readily giving up my obsession with vintage-inspired sneakers, though!
Lucky for me (or maybe I’m just convincing myself of this trend), sneakers added to a summer skirt or dress adds a street-style like flavor to any outfit. Yes, this skirt would look killer with wedges, casual chic with a pair of flat slides, or even date-night ready with kitten-heel sandals; yet add a sneaker, and your ready for most anything. In particular, I like how they makes a pencil skirt, like this one, more accessible in your everyday wardrobe. While it could be a 9-5 basic, why not take this flirty skirt into the weekend by simply adding a cool sneaker?
And what a sneaker? Brooks Heritage Collection brings another classic back to life with their newest addition, the Renshaw Court Shoe. Inspired by 1970’s classic tennis shoes, these sneakers boast all-leather uppers and gum rubber outer soles for a perfectly retro, yet of-the-moment look sure to make your sneaker-head heart skip a beat!
