Flats Challenge: Never worn sneakers

Aug 24 (1) Aug 24 (2)

Friday August 24, 2012

For the 5th day of my Flats Challenge, I searched the inner depths of my shoe closet and found these never worn sneakers! I must have bought these 4 years or so ago, and I never wore them... how crazy is that!

I think the reason why I never wore these sneakers is because I changed my style shortly after buying them. I used to only wear sneakers (I had a pair in every color in fact), but then came a day that my style become very feminine and floral, so I put the sneakers aside.

I'm happy to see that I managed to remix these sneakers with more feminine pieces so that if its my current style! Yai ;)

  1. Okay, once again, that opal ring just blows me away, it is such a stunning piece of jewelry!
    Hehe, that aside, this is adorable! You make these little sneakers look so cute and stylish. I've always had such an hard time making this pair of dress and sneaker work, but you hit it out of the ballpark! (I love the green polka dots.^_^)

  13. I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of in that same mindset with sneakers being not girly enough with you, hahaha. But maybe I need to be like you and embrace them... because this outfit is still so girly chic!

  14. Cute sneakers! I only have my gym sneakers- lol. I think sneakers can look cute with outfits if done right and you did it well here. :)

  15. Certainly a good find and it goes so well with the outfit as well. I've never been a fan of trainers/sneakers-always thought they belong in the gym but recently I have my opinion has been changing and actual love incorporating it in my outfits.

  17. Around two years ago I used to wear only sneakers as well and then my style changed to something more feminine too... I still don't have that much wearable shoes because most of what I own are sneakers haha glad to see you mixing both styles! :)
