how to wear white sneakers

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.

    Speaking of the red Georgia clay and white sneakers..lol.
    How do you have success with ordering with waist sizes? I have never had very good luck trying to match my 10-12 usual size. ( not trying clothes on at this time).

    • when i know how a brand fits (i typically shop from the same brands) then it’s easier to shop online.
      but it can be a challenge when a brand is new to me as i might have to order two sizes then send
      one back. that’s when free shipping comes in handy.

    HI Beth! So funny; I just ordered a pair of Keds “kickstart” canvas sneakers that have a cute rainbow stitching on the sides. In Upstate New York we are having an early March thaw and it feels like Spring!! Time to think about all those fun warmer weather looks and these sneakers will go with many Spring outfits. I also purchased Light pink wide leg crop jeans and pale yellow chinos to start the season colorfully!

    I recently bought a pair of white leather Triple Kick Keds. Really comfy. Love your style. I really identify with all your choices. I have even had 6 German Shepherds over the years. Another favorite.

      Hi, Ardelia. I have narrow feet, too. I have the best luck with Nordstrom and Zappos. I was also surprised to find quite a few choices on Macy’s website recently. Do you have any favorite sites to share for narrow shoes?
