Stripes, Sneakers, and Chambray

I think this is the best new combo. Easy, fun, and casual, stripes, sneakers, and chambray can’t be done wrong. Here I paired a striped mini t-shirt dress with a chambray top and my favorite Nike Internationalist sneakers. Tying the chambray top around my waist gives me some curves and breaks up the stripes. This look is great for summer, especially if you want to be comfortable in sneakers!!

Running for Roshes

Happy WAiSTEDD Wednesday y’all!!! Or better yet, happy hump day! We’re officially half way through the week! If you have been reading our posts lately/ following us on Instagram, you might be catching onto the fact that we have been on quite the health kick. One thing that always keeps us motivated to work out is having really cute work out clothes. We love having great athletic wear and it all starts with our shoes!!
Both of us have really been eyeing these Nike Roshe Run Sneakers- we love all the great patterns and colors they come in. Even if you like a black sneaker- they have great prints that spice up your typical black shoe. One of the best things about these fab Nikes is that they are not just workout shoes. You could wear these to workout and later wear them for a fun day out with friends. Not to mention these could be such a great pair of travel shoes.
Needless to say, we’re totally WAiSTEDD on these kicks!! Check out this Etsy shop for Roshe customization (super sick!!): NYCustoms – search Roshes on the Etsy website for even more!! These are the perfect shoes for a killer workout or day of walking (shopping??)!Running for Roshes

Sneakers

Shoes can be painful, but as women we suck it up and put on our highest heels to go out because they make us feel “sexy”. Have we ever thought why heels only make us feel this way? Why can’t other shoes give us the same empowerment?
We think we might have found the answer. Both comfortable, stylish, and easy to wear, slip-on sneakers are making a comeback in a big way, which is obviously why we are featuring them on WAiSTEDD Wednesday. First seen with the classic Vans (admit it you drew all over yours in high school too), slip on sneakers are possibly the easiest and most versatile shoe you can have in your closet. As they are gaining popularity, more and more versions on the slip on sneaker are appearing, making it easier to branch out and find a pair that you can kick it in.
Because these are such great shoes, it is up to you to decide what price range you are comfortable with or if a certain pair really “speaks” to you. If you are loving the gothic floral print and want to invest a little more into a high quality shoe, we suggest the Givenchy Skate Floral and Leather Print shoe. A great print multi-colored print on leather adds a little edge, but still is easy to pair. Do they remind you of a famous celebrity with the initials K.K.?
You can also find other prints and solids from brands such as Schutz, Steve Madden, and Sam Edelman. All within a similar price range, each brand offers a different take on the classic slip on. You can see the tongue shape of the shoe is different on each. Your preference might come down to which one aesthetically you like better, or which one is more comfortable. To counter the simple construction of these shoes, we suggest a loud print you can match with any outfit. Of course, one of our go tos is cheetah/leopard print because it basically can be called a neutral!
For any season, you can’t go wrong with slip-on sneakers!! Just really think which ones are the best fit for your closet. Let us know which ones you are completely WAiSTEDD on-we always are looking for a new pair!
