Casual in Sneakers

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  For those of you not in Raleigh, we had a rather cold weekend.  They were calling for 4-6″ of snow here and while that may not sound like a lot to some, it doesn’t happen very often for us in North Carolina.  I’m not one to get my hopes up when they call for snow because it seems I always get disappointed.  This time was no exception.  Our 4-6″ ended up being more like 2″-3″ with a good bit of sleet/freezing rain included.  So, there wasn’t much “playing” in the snow but it was and still is beautiful.

Before the snow arrived, Lindsey and I met up on Friday to do a quick shoot since we weren’t sure what the roads would be like over the weekend.  I must say, this outfit was much cuter in my mind than it came off on the camera.  Don’t you hate when that happens?

Nonetheless, I wanted to tell you about my new kicks.  Yes, I got another pair of sneakers and I think these are now my favorite.  I love my Superstars but the Gazelle’s are more comfortable and because I opted for the black pair, I don’t have to worry as much about getting them dirty.  Not to mention, the leather has a snakeskin texture!  You can’t tell much in the pictures but that detail adds so much to the already classic shoe.  They are amazing!

I’m sure you all know by now that I am a little bit of a girly girl…or at least, I think I am.  When wearing sneakers, I always look for ways to make my look more feminine.  For this look, I decided to throw on a light grey, patterned vest with faux fur trim around the hood.  I actually love this vest that I purchased at The Limited in November…did you all know that they were going out business?!  If you have a store near by, you MUST go check it out.  The last time I was at the mall everything was 70% off.  I’m not sure if they are still open or how much is still available online, but it’s worth a try.

To complete my look and because it was super cold, I threw on my faux fur scarf and a pink beanie with a a faux fur pom pom.  Can a girl have too much faux fur on?!?  Oh well!

Have a great week!
