#Instastyle: Sneaker Diaries

photo (4)I have been living in my sneakers lately…I just can’t seem to get enough! An athletic-inspired shoe adds a relaxed and cool, yet chic statement to seemingly every outfit.  From stylish to truly functional, check out my sneaker collection below via my Instagram posts, and be sure to follow me for daily outfit inspiration!

Converse ‘Chuck Taylor’

These have been my absolute, go-to sneakers for years.  I own black and white (as well as the high-top version).  “Chucks” look just as awesome paired with leather pants as they do with a short, flirty summer dress.  Converse are also a great example that a timeless staple piece doesn’t have to break the bank (at $45).

Nike ‘Internationalist’

I was inspired to purchase these bright Nike sneakers after selecting a pair for a client.  I have worn them a TON as the bright color compliments all my  dark neutrals, which seem to be in heavy rotation.  The sneakers looked awesome paired with shorts during the summer (and saved my feet at the fair – as pictured), yet continue to be worn with my jeans and sweats, as the temperatures have dropped.

Madewell X Vans SK8-Hi (similar) | others: Vans SK8-HiVans ‘Style 36’ Slim Sneaker

I had been eying the classic Vans SK8 high tops for awhile and, when I saw their collaboration with Madewell, I had to buy! A twist on the classic version, these moss green high tops have gotten a ton of mileage.  Clearly I’m a jeans and sneakers gal!

Nike ‘Free 5.0 14’ Running Shoe (similar)

My Nike kicks are more of a true activewear shoe than the other sneakers in my collection (at least that’s how I justify them).  They’re perfect for when comfort is truly a requirement…like a long day of running errands or chasing kids.  I also love the sporty juxtapose when paired with my everyday street wear.

Vans ‘Classic’ Sneaker

I purchased these Vans slip-on sneakers when I was down in California visiting family over the summer.  Maybe it’s the nostalgia for my childhood combined with the classic black and white check; either way, I just couldn’t help myself! I’m also loving all of these fun prints and textures: snakeskin, metallic, and liberty print.

Adidas ‘Stan Smith’

My newest addition, I’m loving the throw-back, vintage vibe of the classic Stan Smith sneaker.  I didn’t own these in high school, although I wish I had been that cool! In particular, I love their stark “whiteness” in contrast to all of my darker winter layers.  And, unlike canvas, they’ll stay white longer, even after being stomped on by small feet.

Wow, that was a lot! But, don’t judge my sneaker obsession. What sneakers are you lusting after? Tempt me.  As always, please leave a comment or questions.
