Back by popular demand, it’s a “4-Way Friday” post featuring none other than our new favorite “dress sneaker” from the Brooks Academia Heritage Collection. As we’ve been sharing all week, dressed-up, dressed-down, and worn all around; these classic sneakers are anything but casual and far from ordinary.
For the Fashion Set
Sleek in black on black, with subtle texture detailing and a retro design; these sneakers can be a chic addition to the most interesting of outfits. While a heel or a bootie would have been a more expected shoe choice for these fashion-forward looks, a sneaker adds a cool street vibe. And although many street style shots are found in New York or Milan, look no further than the crosswalks of Kirkland, Washington for these fur-clad fashionistas!
For the Weekday Grind
Who says that looking professional and staying comfortable can’t be synonymous? Kirsty’s look is business on the top and confidently comfortable on the bottom. And who can think straight, let alone make tough decisions, when their feet hurt? A classic black sneaker can be dressy when paired with an A-line skirt and a simple button-down/sweater combo, just be sure to keep the rest of the look simple and professional.
See Kirsty’s previous post for outfit details.
For the Mom On-the-Go
“Mom Style” is on fleek with a pair of cool kicks. Swap out those yoga pants for a pair of black skinnies and an oversized cardi can disguise a myriad of sins (stains, lack of bras, jammy tops included!). Throw on a pair of oversized sunnies and with a few liberal sprays of dry shampoo, you’re at school pick-up with minutes to spare!

Yep, we’re professionals…just take our word for it! At least it’s Friday. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Thanks for reading! ~Jenn (and Kirsty too)
