Fresher Than You




To be honest, we probably don't care about Chris Brown thinks looks good on women 
*Feminists back away and Team Breezy comes in for the attack*
But what can I say? There is definitely some substance in this (are you happy with me again Team Breezy?). 

It seems the only way to be up in the secret society of the "in" crowd within the fashion industry is to literally be up on 6-inch stilts. But if you're like me it just may be time for us to create our own secret society because there's nothing else that can possibly explain why a few weeks ago I set my alarm at a time I am unwilling to disclose for a pair of sneakers. But, wait they weren't just any sneakers, they were the.... wait for it, wait for it... Jordan Retro 11 "Legend Blue" sneakers.

Barely awake, I squinted at the gleam of my laptop screen in the dark room, only to find a screen saying that the website was over capacity and the website would refresh when there were less people on. I didn’t realize how popular the sneakers would be and reluctant to wait for the website to refresh, I shut my laptop and went back to sleep. I was tired, man. With as much effort that I placed on securing those sneakers (very little, but it interrupted my beauty sleep, so a lot), you can imagine my reaction when my friend insulted my love of sneakers.

After final weeks, my friend and I decided to delve into a 2-3 hour conversation when we came into the topic of change and high school gossip. But, somehow we ended up at "yea you and those stupid sneakers" wait PAUSE. 


What? Now rewind. Sneakers were one of the main things you had to keep up with in high school. You see I went to one of those urban schools where in order to fit in you had to keep up. Keep up with the latest trends, brand names, etc. At this point in life, I am over this keep up phase, but I'm pretty we've all been there at some point. But still sneakers are not "stupid." Sneakers are very versatile and they can make for great investments.




Here are a few ways you can ditch the stilts and still make a statement:

You know those nights when you finally have time to have fun- when the club goes up on Tuesday? You shouldn't worry about holding your shoes in your hands and taking a cab to get home because of your sore, aching feet at the end of the night.


This one has to be my favorite because as a college student, I guess it resonates with me the most. With a look like this you're guaranteed to stand out against the thousands of students in your school.


Leave you Louboutins at home because those city sidewalk cracks are no place for your heels. You can wear this to work (depending on your job's dress code).

Sneakers are usually associated with casual wear, so there was no way I could leave this out. 

How would you style a pair of sneakers? Let me know which look is your favorite.

  6. These are such great outfits and a great post! <3 I honestly couldn't care less about what Chris Brown was saying, but at least it was something nice and it made a great start to the post! I personally love sneakers, and I love combining them with a skirt (so they look kind of out of place), which has become a cliché by now, but yeas.... Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! That means so much to me! x

  13. Hey! Thanks for your comment on my blog!
    I'm not really a sneaker fan but I like seeing it on other people's feet.
    The last outfit is my favorite cuz it's casual and the mixing of the colours is just perfect! I can wear this. On the other hand, I found it weird to wear sneakers with the first outfit. Heels would have been much more better.
    See you soon. Kiss.
