Inspiration: Sneakers

I love sneakers. Hard to believe, considering I never wear them on the blog. I guess I’m just inclined to wear my plethora of other shoes because I have a hard time incorporating sneakers into an outfit in a way that doesn’t look like I’m off to the gym…or playground. Not many other bloggers I follow wear them very often, either. Maybe a pair of chucks shows up every now and then, but that’s it. I searched around and found a bunch of pictures of really cute sneakers and outfits that incorporate them. I hope this inspires you to incorporate some stylish sneakers into more of your outfits. (I want some floral sneakers now!)

I’ve found many cute pairs of sneakers secondhand over the years. Keep an eye out at your local thrift/consignment/resale stores and I’m sure you’ll happen upon a pair for yourself…maybe three! :)

    It’s still cold and snowy where I live, but I’ve totally been planning on buying lots of colorful sneakers for summer. A pair of red Nikes Janoski’s, or colorful vans! I’m so over the ballerinas :) Great collage you made, very inspirational! :)

      We’ve had a warm spell, but I’m sure it will end soon. Glad you like the collage and good luck finding some colorful sneakers!

    I wear sneakers on a daily basis but I’m getting a little bit over my trusty Converse. Thanks so much for this post, there are some really cute alternatives in here! Although I’ll probably never really give up my Converse :)

      I have a few pair of converse, too, but I’m anxious to get some more colorful, unique sneakers! :)

    Basically, (if I could get away with it), I’d wear my grey Converse with everything!

      I studied abroad in London a few years ago and I LIVED in my converse while there. I had to pack light, and they were one of very few pairs of shoes I brought.
