How to: Feel like a BABE in sneakers



how beautiful is this dress? (From Hello Molly)

I wore this outfit my first night in San Francisco and am in love with it. I know I throw the word “love” around a lot of here, but truly, this outfit is me. I’m definitely a dress gal, but because of my current hip issues & lots of walking, I knew heels were out of the question for Saturday night. The Adidas Superstars are the perfect solution for exploring a new city. To tie in the black on the sneakers (and because it was chilly!) I added my leather jacket. (Plus a night out always calls for my magenta Gigi New York clutch).

My recipe for an outfit that makes you feel amazing?

Stick with pieces you LOVE and that you are COMFORTABLE in.

For me it was:

1.) leather jacket – I wear this at least once a week, instant upgrade to any outfit

2.) dress – in the summer I can almost always be found in a dress – this one is a little tighter than I normally wear, but I thought the high neck and the sneakers balanced it out

3.) sneakers – no hip pain, easy to dance & walk in, no discomfort, blisters, etc throughout the night.

I was comfortable, felt great & received tons of compliments all night.

Only downfall – I managed to spill salsa down the front of the dress, but since it’s lace the salsa actually fell into my bra. What a win there. I finished the rest of our delicious dinner at Tacolicious with a napkin bib – no joke. 🙂 (You really can’t take me anywhere)

Happy weekend my friends! Work on finding your outfit recipe this weekend, I want to hear what it is!

PS. for shoe sizing – I am wearing a boys size 5 in the Adidas – equivalent to a women’s size 7

    I absolutely LOVE this outfit! I probably throw that word out a lot too, now that I think about it!

    I haven’t actually tried the sneakers/dress combo myself, but I think I need to. So cute!
