I confess to having a minor (ok, major) obsession with sneakers (see Monday’s declaration here). Still your comfy, run-around kicks but with stylish, vintage-inspired design; these Brooks Vanguard sneakers meet all of my footwear prerequisites. Tried-and-true Brooks comfort meets satin quilting, suede detailing, with metallic accents. A major upgrade to your standard athleisure wear but also so easy to dress up, as I’ve done here, by adding a smart blazer and some gold accessories.
Skip on over to Kirsty’s blog to see how she is styling her Vanguard sneakers. Little known fact (and something she doesn’t dare admit now), but Kirsty is a recent sneaker convert. Purchased “only” to wear to Disneyland, her first pair of sneakers were bought out of necessity. She even scorned flats entirely, a self-proclaimed “heels girl.” And now? I rarely see her in other shoes…and certainly not heels! Her other footwear of choice? Birkenstocks. Yep, you guessed it…she was never going to wear those either!
