SNEAKS AND JEANS. The practical girls outfit of choice yet something has happened these last couple seasons where this pairing has turned from grandma status to effortlessly chic. Granted the jeans and the kicks have gotten a decent upgrade with materials such as suede and leather being used but the practicality is still present. Let's be honest, it is pretty rare for the 'everyday' girl to be wearing heels all around town and although flats have been the go-to, I enjoy a bit of a rougher edge. Skate shoes, high tops, and fashion sneakers - the footwear of my middle-school years - are back and have been taken to a whole different level and I'm obsessing. My favorites right now are by Nike. They have killed it with there shoes these past seasons that it has even garnered them spots at stores like Barney's and Bergdorfs which is a major step in the right direction from say, The Footlocker. It has taken all of me to not purchase every shoe from Nike's recent collaboration with Skateboarder/Musician/Writer/Artist STEFAN JANOSKI. They are killer. Practical yet styled correctly give an outfit this 'chill' feel. I can't even explain it. Just check 'em out HERE and you'll understand.
