Kickin’ It

{Aritzia tee, BB Dakota Jasper jacket (sold out but similar), AG leggings, Adidas Dragon sneakers, Tory Burch Robinson satchel (middy version), Brooklyn Designs infinity necklace c/o}

Okay, I’m hooked! I wasn’t into the sneaker trend last year and I probably will never wear a high top or wedge, but a pair of  good ole classic/vintage flat sneakers, yup, I’m obsessed! You can’t beat the comfort level and I just love the unexpected factor they bring to an outfit. Casual meets menswear meets sporty… I like it! I already have my eye on a pair of Nike Cortez. I told this to Mike and he laughed in my face, ‘those are so 1990’s.’ – ha!

Who else has tried the sneaker trend?

    Oh girl, you know I love this. I’ve been living in sneakers lately. I love dressing up my converse with jeans and leather. Perfect!

    First off, love that jacket! Secondly, I feel the same, I’m 100% sure I would never wear the wedge sneaker, but loving my new nikes and I love those adidas ;)

    yessss….those are “da bomb.” Hey, if we’re going ’90s here, we may as well start incorporating old school lingo too. I mean…did you watch the AMAs??? TLC?? R.Kelly?? WHAT?
    Love the look and styling! =)

      hahaha, yes i watched the AMAs! I didn’t mind the R kelly Lady Gaga thing, but I was so confused with the TLC performance. I so didn’t like the look-a-like left eye and the performance was just so 90′s… old and blah.

    Stop! Ok I am just now seeing this post. I talked about my love of sneakers on my blog today!!! I have my eye on like 10 other pairs…it’s becoming an addiction! You look so cute and I love that jacket. xoxoo

    Love the sneakers! Can you tell me what size you purchased and how the kid sizes run? I’m a women’s 5M and thought about going with the 3.5. Thanks!

    • Crystalin November 27, 2013

      Thank you! I’m normally a small size 5 and ordered 3.5 big kids. If I were to wear them to workout, I would say they are a bit too small. But since I’m only wearing them casually, the fit is fine. I would probably go 4 next time.

    Did you get your haircut? It looks amazing!!

    Okay, I agree with you 100%. Most of the time I just don’t think it works, but you nailed it! I think you’re one of the only people I’ve seen pull it off. It’s perfect and those sneakers are so cute. You’re my sneaker muse. ;)
