Mix Must: Detailed White Sneaks

One trend that will carry you through these last weeks of summer straight into fall (and next spring) is the “detailed white sneaker”.  Once associated with middle aged dads on vacation, retirees in Florida and humans under the age of 5, the white low top sneaker is definitely cool again.  Pair them (obviously) with skinnies and a casual tee, sweater or graphic sweatshirt, or my favorite current way to wear them, with dresses to lend a fresh and sporty vibe that’s way less expected than sandals or heels.  Extra extra credit for wearing these sporty kicks with cool details like snakeskin, studs, metallic details, or different textures.  EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA credit for pairing them with this fall’s hottest pants shape, culottes or wide leg cropped pants.  Below, how I styled them this weekend with one of my favorite summer dresses and a denim jacket– totally different than how I wore this dress the first time, here: 





My exact sneaks are from Aldo (linked here), and are under $100.  Below, find some more of my favorite detailed white sneakers in varying price ranges:

Hope your own pair of fresh white kicks helps make saying goodbye to summer a little easier for you guys!

Mix List: Spring Wishlist

As this current snowstorm dumps another 8 inches on New York, even I, the unremitting snow-lover, am thinking Spring.  I already picked up a few of the items on my Spring must-have list– since I’m so OVER my Sorels and scarves, I needed to get a jump start on some new Spring items! The Rebecca Minkoff marble clutch and Wildfox mirrored sunnies are anxiously awaiting the first sunny day brunch of the season!
