First and foremost, big shout out to my Instagram Husband for shooting this post! Asking Joe to take my picture is usually an absolute last resort because his two-second attention span and unique “vision” result in some really–errr–special, but not exactly useful, photographs. If I’m like, “Hey I just need a picture of me in a squat position to show the proper form” the result will be a picture zoomed in on a traffic cone far off in the distance with half my legs cut out of the frame. His response is usually something along the lines of, “Negative spacing is very artistic, Nicole, you just don’t appreciate my talent.”
Ok, Mario Testino. (LOLLOLLOL)
Well time to give Insta Hubs a little more credit because I’m in focus AND you can see my entire body–a good thing since this post is all about my new kicks.
Now that I live in Downtown Crossing, I’m just a quick walk from Designer Shoe Warehouse and I can’t stay away from their sneaker section. No joke, when they reached out to me about working together I was literally in the store buying the white sneakers I’ve been wearing in recent workout posts. I checked my email on my phone and was like c’mon. What are the chances?! DSW has a wide selection of brand name and designer footwear (and accessories) with tons of different styles, colors, sizes and widths. I love these adidas NEO Courtset sneakers I’m wearing for a casual every day look or to wear to and from teaching at the studio. I’m also on a serious gray kick (really broadening my fashion horizons from my typical black on black on black looks haha) so these shoes were perfect.
I’ve always loved sneakers, so having this whole athleisure trend explode has given me the encouragement I didn’t need to wear them with literally everything. Leggings, duh. Jeans and a cozy sweater, done. Dresses, sure. Bathing suits, you’d be surprised. 😉
If you don’t live by a store, check out DSW.com for an even larger selection of shoes.
Any fellow sneaker lovers out there? What does your go-to pair look like?
