Fashion Inspiration: Sneakers

Friday, August 12, 2011


I've always been a sneakers type of girl but in the past few years I neglected them a bit and I swapped to ballerina flats instead. What can I say - they make me feel oh so French! But recently after seeing that they are making such a huge comeback, I got out my worn out pair of navy blue Converse and Bensimons (also known as French Converse) and I'm ready to wear them again! They look so adorable with dresses and skirts, don't they? Easy, breezy and pain free look! xo

How about you, sweets? Are you a sneakers type of girl? What are your favourites: Converse, Toms, Bensimons or maybe Keds?

P.S: Garance Dore just got herself a pair of high-top Converse. On a randome note: which one you prefer: the high-tops or low-tops? (Low-tops for me).
P.P.S: People and their shoes.

I love those photos, Diana! I mostly wear white low-tops converse. They are easy to put on and look great with jeans. Hey, it's Friday.

Love, Amy

I love my Bensimons...though I usually only wear them with jeans. Maybe I will be brave enough to try them with skirts and dresses because these photos are adorable!
Best,
Tina
