Pretty Mondays: The New Denim + Tennis Shoes
I was finishing up a cycle class last week, when my cycle instructor told me she loves my Facebook posts about fashion. She then said she needed ideas on what to wear after the gym - where she primarily picks up her son from school and then does the "mom" thing (the "mom" thing is not a bad thing, nor is it an insult - but if you happen to be a mom, you know this does not usually entail pencil skirts and high heels.......) She mentioned wanting stylish shoes to wear with her jeans (because it's just too cold for flip-flops now.) Normally I would recommend an amazing pair of flats (like leopard print) with jeans, but I'd like to offer up an alternative to jeans entirely (but don't forget - leggings are not to be worn as pants!) I told her about my as-of-that-morning unpublished post featuring this outfit (that I want to wear everyday, to be perfectly frank with you.)
Jacket: Kohls (old) see similar here
Earrings: H&M (old)
Necklaces: J.Crew Tassel, Forever21
Bracelets: J.Crew (old)
Handbag: Phillip Lim for Target
Pants: J.Crew Pixie Pant
Shoes: Puma (via Nordstrom Rack)
I personally love Puma brand tennis shoes - they seem to work best with my foot type. I look for shoes that are cut farther away from the top of my foot and ankle - they seem to help with my "cankle-like" appearance, lol!
What brand of shoes do you prefer?
