03 Dec Girl On The Go
When it comes to style and comfort, I say no to heels and yes to sneakers. I would love to say my job involved sitting pretty at a desk all day responding to emails and snapping Insta-Stories of my cute Italian Greyhound, but unfortunately that is not the case. A lot of my day involves moving around, cutting out samples, meeting suppliers, jumping into the car at a moment’s notice and kicking some serious goals.
A few of my favourite sneakers and lace up shoes range from a classic Conserve, which I find easy to wear back with almost everything. If I need to sharpen up my look, I reach for my latest favourite from Country Road, the Lavinia Patent Derby which look feminine paired back with an ivory skirt or white jeans. I have added a few other styles I have mentally added to my lust-have list.
I love the all white ensemble Kaitlyn Ham from Modern Legacy is rocking. I personally opted for the Chuck Taylor All Star Dainty Leather Leather Low Top in White for three reasons.
1. I am always spilling things on my shoes, mainly coffee as I never have enough sleep! So I am constantly wiping them clean and throwing the laces in the wash.
2. I like the cut of these as I am shorter and I feel it makes my leg look longer as it cuts underneath the ankle.
3. I find light shoes easier to wear as I normally wear dark pants and a lighter tee and want to keep my look as fresh as possible.
I originally purchased my Nike’s with the intention of wearing them running and the occasional daytime outfit. Unfortunately for me, mine are a little worse for wear as I have scuffed them one too many times… note to self: always have a nice pair to wear with outfits.
