I have Vans, but they tend to get beat pretty quick. I wanted something casual, but a little more mod and could be dressed up. I wandered into the Vince at Stanford with my friend Jeanne and she showed me these new Wallace slide-ons she bought. I love the little platform on them yet they feel like sneakers.
As the Vince platforms sneakers were so comfy, I found a similar pair by Steve Madden in black, also cute and comfy and costs quite a bit less. Now I have both. I also splurged on this amazing sweater from All Saints. It’s like butter. Super soft wool and thick and feels wonderful on. I also bought a long t-shirt dress there to wear with these sneakers as the weather warms. I am loving their quality and beautiful collectable pieces.
I try to add at least one good sweater a year to my rotation and remove one. This one is very me- oversized and I know I will wear it a million times.
Sorry for the lame kitchen photo, but with the weather this was about the only decent place to snap a picture. So here you have it..Me in me habitat, this is my California girl uniform pretty much daily in the winter! This sweater by AllSaints is my favorite thing I bought this year and will hopefully last me many seasons. It’s super soft and thick.
There are a lot of cute ways to style these. many found on my Pinterest like below. I’m looking forward to wearing both of them with casual t-shirt dresses and skirts come spring as well as my new fringed jeans now.
My fringed jeans (worn above), were another a winter addition to the wardrobe. McGuire is my new favorite jeans. I found mine at Anthropologie. At the checkout all the girls were telling me how fantastic this brand is. I had no idea! Now I’m on the hunt for another pair. They are amazingly comfortable and best of all…do not stretch out much. That’s a big problem with a lot of jeans. Look for ones with more cotton, less polyester.
Something about new denim styles jeans and sneakers inject a little fresh in the winter wardrobe and are two things that can easily transition into warmer weather.. Here’s to warmer days ahead!
Have a good weekend!
While we are talking about these jagged hems- check out my friend Dawn’s blog- Fashion Should Be Fun. On this post she tells you how to do this with jeans you already have and a steak knife! Why not? Love this idea to update something you already own!
