I love sneakers and at the moment, old school styles are really going strong. I had a pink pair of Nike Cortez’s in 2nd grade and they’re back! I love the full on red, white and blue, Forrest Gump Cortezs and the styling opportunities are endless. They give a basic tee and shorts the kind of vibes I want! Here is some inspo I’ve found on my favorite place, pinterest.

I haven’t seen a ton of sneakers lately that I’ve loved. I look for sneakers that 1. I love, 2. that aren’t totally basic or 3. are a right of passage for people who like sneakers, so Stan Smith and NMDs. That being said, I’m OBSESSED with these! I love the Red October color way, these are called Max Orange a lil different but like cousin status. I want them SO bad, ugh. If you live somewhere warm get them and wear them for me because theres snow on the ground at school and that will screw up the leather. 😒
This wall practically begs you to come take a picture in front of it so I
happily obliged… aaannndddddd did not realize till I looked at the picture after the fact that I look JUST LIKE the michelin tire man. (love this coat
so much tho)
I don’t go home to LA for Thanksgiving because its a short break so I come to see my cousin^ and aunt in the city. I’m so blessed to have them!
I love Union Square park and it’s little craft fair. So festive, everybody should go! I also love candid pictures better than posed ones.
I’m so happy with my hair at this point. The length, color, I’ve perfected how I style it… and naturally now I wanna change it up again. Shame on me.
The prettiest mural in Little Italy!
I’ve wanted to go to Kith for sooooo long and I’m obsessed. The girls store is legit the size of a shoe box but I’ll happily squeeze in for shoes.
Freakin Black Friday and nothing I bought was on sale. Such a me move. But I love both shoes I got!!! I still can’t get over the fact that I just walked into a store and found NMDs in my size. The shoes look similar but I don’t even care and I obviiiii need to own both!
Found these hammocks just outside the Flatiron building. They’re held up by glowing poles so the lighting is great. Good vibes.
I allwayyyyssss talking about shoes! This is all I wear at school. Lululemon leggings and sneakers. It’s my jam. I love these roshes because I consider them the non basic kind as I’ve never seen people with flyknit ones. They’re comfy and have the slightest Yeezy sort of look to them. They’re a win, win, win.
I know you’re thinking; “Wait homegirl, you just made a case not even an hour ago for non-basic shoes.” A few months ago I was raving to my friend about how bad I want cheetah Stan Smith. THIS IS MY BASIC SHOE DREAM COMING TRUE. Jeez. I want these way bad. Holy cheetah.
Sneakers have totally taken charge and won over the fashion world. They’re everywhere and I say it’s my most favorite trend probably ever… up there with overalls and gauchos…. (I’m talking to those Limited Too ones I had that were green and tied at the waist… in like third grade.) Now with sneakers being so worldly right now, the problem leads to originality and lack there of, really.
It started with the wedge sneaker… Stan Smith and anything Adidas. White sneakers. Lets throw in the black Nikes that go with everything in there. (Ahem, Roshes) The slip on sneaker. The platform sneaker. I’ve jumped on board with all of it. I own multiples of all of it. But I want to feel like I have my own style. I hate doing what everyone else does and I don’t want whats all over instagram.. but then maybe I do because I own all of it? This year, I want to find my own way of doing everything. I like these high top Vans because they’re on trend but I feel like I can tackle it in my own way. They’re super comfy and $55, I don’t know what they do wrong.
