adidas superstar shoes, spring 2015
I have been a ballet slipper wearing gal for years but that is about to change. Sneakers (converse not included) were in my opinion, the accoutrement of athletes (which I am not) and 6 foot tall thin blonde european couples in coordinating beige outfits (of which I am not a part).
I have to admit that I have always considered wearing sneakers in public up there with wearing sweat pants or white socks and sandals.
Has that ever changed! Kanye & Adidas, Rihanna, Isabel Marant…just to name just a few who have changed the fashion game.
One day I woke up and said to myself, I need a long grey coat, wedge high tops and a fabulous small black bag. Here are my personal inspirations, and the pieces I chose.
1 – Wedge
GOOP showed these Isabel Marant sneakers a while back = fashion heart attack

Jennifer Lopez in wedge high tops = Sports Luxe
2 – Flat
adidas superstar = NYC chic
adidas superstar = feminine & sporty mix
zara boyfriend jeans, blazer & adidas superstars = tomboy chic
superstars for men = hot

Kate Moss in Stan Smiths, Glamour
3 – Chosen
long grey coat
small black messenger bag
I love that I get to choose comfort and style, and not one over the other. I love the look and feel of throwing a big coat over a tomboy ensemble. It’s a chic thrown together look that still looks put together. I say the chic sneak is required comfort for our busy lives.
P.S. Laces…double tie/tuck them in. Am I right?
