hello wednesday, and hello beautiful weather. yes, the skies are blue again with the sun shining overhead. as a matter of fact, the landscapers are working on my yard again. can you say excited for spring? ‘cuz this spring i will have a beautiful backyard to enjoy. when the project wraps up, i will share photos of the yard. before and after. it’s always a process to get to the finish line. let me tell you, oscar and his muddy paws have been my latest trial… the upstairs carpets have taken a beating even after his paws are dipped in warm water and wiped off with a towel. that red clay of Georgia is something else! but i digress. today, i’m kicking up my heels and sharing how to wear white sneakers.
what shoe is a timeless classic? well, the white sneaker ranks up there with a white shirt and white tee. it’s an essential building block to a classic wardrobe. much like a nude heel, a classic white tennis shoe is your go-to sneaker as they look fantastic with everything from dresses to cuffed jeans. if you fret over how to keep them clean, mr. clean magic eraser will come to your rescue, especially if your tennies are leather.
today’s ootd has one foot squarely in winter another foot in spring. yes, i busted out a beloved pair of Stan Smith sneakers today. who remembers when these babies arrived on the fashion scene? this iconic sneaker debuted in 1963 when athletes were transitioning from canvas to leather sneakers. a few years later, it was branded by french tennis star Roger Haillet then Adidas officially rebranded the shoes Stan Smiths after Pasadena born Stanley Roger Smith in 1978. my favorite rendition of this sneaker is white with the traditional Stan Smith logo in green. i wore those tennies all through college and beyond. this go-round, i’m sporting all white.
dark rinse denim from J.Crew (i’m wearing a size 29 for sizing purposes) and classic white sneakers are all right with me. add a cute camo sweater (size medium) from Banana Republic last seen here for warmth, a white button-down that ties back to the sneakers, and a knit topper (old, similar here, here, and here) keep this outfit modern, fresh, and relevant. because who wants to look dated and stodgy? not i, said the little red hen.
it’s Wednesday, gang, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
