Confession time! This is the outfit you will see me in most every day of the week (excluding work events and Sundays, when I’m not even dressed). Call this “Mom Style” or simply the uniform of a busy woman on-the-go; but a pair of black skinny jeans are sophisticated and can be worn with most anything. Not to mention, a sleek pair of black sneakers help me get through my hectic schedule with ease (and in comfort!). Add a few accessories and maybe a couple swipes of mascara, and you look put together…almost ready to face whatever the day throws at you!Sneakers…how I love you?! I am an absolute devotee to a street-style sneaker (don’t get me wrong, I like the functional ones too!). Lately, the pairs that I am reaching for most often are my Brooks Heritage sneakers (also seen here, here, and here). I’m obsessing over Brooks’ retro styling crafted in unique materials (think satin, pique, velvet, and suede) that make the sneaker totally luxe.
As luck would have it, just last night I got a special sneak peek at Brooks’ spring line. And it did not disappoint! New Vanguard and Chariot styles in fresh spring colors (one color story is inspired by gelato – pastels like pistachio, peach, and raspberry) and and entirely “new again” sneaker inspired by their early tennis collection. Need-less-to-say, I have several additions to my sneaker wish-list!
sneakers: Brooks Chariot (c/o)
denim: McGuire Denim
cardigan: Treasure & Bond (planning to add this one to my closet)
plaid: Rails (sale!)
bag: Zara (old)
sunnies: Smith Optics
choker: Vanessa Mooney
rings: Fresh Tangerine (heart & band), Katie Dean (evil eye)
Head on over to Kirsty’s blog to see how she’s styling her Brooks sneakers. And, yes, that means we’re planning to post our first “4-Way Friday” of the new year THIS Friday! Stay tuned for more fun antics (and possibly some blooper shots) just in time for the weekend.
As always, thanks for reading! ~Jenn
