how we wear it: Sneaks

Apr 25, 2013

Hey, Cams! - S

Yehhh?- me

Let's rock out those sneakers, yo! - S

Let's DO IT.- me

That's pretty much how our conversation went.

We are baaaack and hopefully you are too, so that you can join in on this round of How We Wear It- this time it's all about sneakers. They're awesome, delightful, comfy, cute, can be found everywhere...and versatile? Yep.  ANMJ  & I are sharing how we wore them...

I try to find any excuse to wear this hat. I found it in the Clearance bins at Target...I think it was $8. Score. I also found these super comfy, awesome J.Crew peach/neon (they look more neon in person), stretchy, denim roll-up shorts. That was a heck of a description. NO, but really. Go out and buy these. You will thank me! You can wear them long or roll them up if you're having a good leg day. I am smitten. Plus- they look good with sneaks.

Stripes. I can't get enough of them. You should see my Pinterest boards...I should just have one board called 'Stripes' and be done with it ;). Anyways, so I layered up the stripes here...and almost flashed you. Sorry? I think the skirt looks longer in person. Maybe. Well, it's comfy and works with sneakers, so that's a win in my book.

So...I just got these ankle jeans from Joe's Jeans outlet. I had been waiting for forever (& a day) to get my  hands on them. They go a bit above my ankles, but I thought...what the hey...I can do the whole Audrey Hepburn thing. I threw on a dressy white button-up and smacked a bit of lipcolor on and...this...this happened. I felt oober cute and then made unnatural surprised faces. Oh!...and then I tried tying the shirt in front and ended up liking that as well. BAM. 2-in-1.

  6. Ok, where, oh where, is Joe's jeans outlet?? Joe's are my absolute fav jeans, the fit is so flattering (my pairs are from Nordstrom Rack and Ebay).

    Love the baseball tee and shorts and the white shirt/jeans. I'm trying to find a navy or black and white baseball tee so maybe that F21 version is the one :)

  7. you and S are giving me mega shorts envy!! I refuse to buy maternity shorts (babe is around June 1-3rd)so I'm stuck in leggings and maxi dresses for the next 5+ weeks...I'm sure I won't squeeze into last years shorts anytime soon either haha! These shorts are AMAZING as are your legs, holy girl!
    Adore all the outfits, so realistic, down to the earth but far from boring and totally kid friendly!

  8. Love how you and S styled them with a striped skirt - great fashionistas think alike! Happy weekend! :)
