Clean white sneakers

I swear everyone I know hates these shoes except for me. According to my Topshop account (which I had to check because I couldn't even remember) I bought them in February but never blogged an outfit in them. Since we're playing catch up here I figured it was finally time to give them some love. For a long time I wanted the Isabel Marant sneakers and even tried them on in Paris but I didn't have that kind of cash and I didn't like any knockoffs. Then I tried some flatforms but I didn't keep them because they were impossible to move in. Finally, I talked myself out of the expensive Opening Ceremony ones and settled on a more reasonable pair of heeled sneakers from Topshop. They add just the right amount of fun to pep up a simple outfit.

  1. Hmmm...on the fence about them. They remind me of a combination of ice skates (good) and construction boots (not so good). I'm all about rocking individual style, though, so you go girl! :)


  2. OMG ICE SKATES. YES! Now I love them even more hahaha.

  3. I think they are super cute in a swedish hasbeens kinda way! trust your instincts, young padawan

  4. I like them! They're kind of 90s and ice skater-y. They do add a punch to this simple outfit. You always look so cute in sweaters over button-down shirts. I need to wear that combination more often.

  5. I have a weird obsession with sneaker wedges and heels, too. They're awesome and you wear them well. - Leah, wisestyle.wordpress.com
