Weren’t those sneakers in my last post awesome? I cannot wait for them to arrive. For some reason I seem to have developed a New Year sneaker obsession. Maybe it is my desire to simplify and opt for simple classics as opposed to wild one hit wonders?
I made lots of sartorial errors last year but one major improvement I made to my closet was to add some navy and blue pieces. I love neutrals but I was getting tired of grey and black. Some navy pieces added a little extra something to my closet, and it is another style pointer that is endorsed by my new handbook “How to be Parisian…”. So why not add another pair of sneakers that also happen to be navy…and classics…? Introducing the navy Stan Smith from Adidas.
Or if you prefer leopard print how about the black?
Or a spin on the classic white?
My Husband is a fan of classic sneakers having worn red hi-top Converse and Adidas classics all his life. He’s often encouraged me to seek out the classic Nike Air Force 1 hi-top and I have so far been reluctant as they always looked so big and awkward. That is till I saw these on NAP. A new, slimmer, more feminine version of the classic. I totally adore them.
It’s always dangerous on NAP at this time of year when new season stock is arriving daily. I also fell in love with this cobalt pair. Just stunning.
This neutral pair remind me of my Isabel Marant Bobbys, a much cheaper option and yet maybe even cooler?
I can’t buy these as they are patterned. But if they adhere to your 2015 fashion rules go for them – they are fabulous. Adidas originals by Mary Katrantzou:
As for my wardrobe choices over the past couple of days it has all been based on warmth. With temperatures at 10 degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday it called for fur, boots and polo necks.
Boots – Stuart Weitzman 5050s // Jeans – Zara coated jeans (old) // Jumper – J.Crew (40% off with SALENEWS) // Coat – Marks and Spencer (last year)
Yesterday I was bombing around from school run, to gym, to dentist, to shopping so comfort was the order of the day.
Sneakers – Golden Goose (similar here) // Jeans – Zara // Jumper – Boden Off Duty jumper (old but similar here) // Cardigan – ASOS (currently on sale plus an extra 10% off with GIMME10)
One last note – if you have seen Kat’s Instagram you will see she received her lovely Dorothy Perkins satin navy boots today. They look amazing. Well if you are in the US you can also get them here with free delivery and 15% off the sale price! Just use these 2 codes at check out INTDP15 and DPTREAT – they also come in black too. Just saying. Both are reduced from $69 to $27 and $35 respectively.
I’m with you on the sneaks. I have a serious addiction to the retro New Balance and Nike kicks.
Love love love the navy. Navy has been my staple neutral for years – I don’t get blackin my colour palette but being a rebel I’ve been wearing more of that too. Boy it’s cold over there, keep, on dragging those lovely warm clothes out and wrap up warm. You’re probably going to tell me that it’s 70 degrees today!
I love the white ones with the zebra print back – aren’t those gorgeous?
I still love those Golden Goose on you the best! I’ve stopped wearing my trainers as I feel the cold so much, I don’t have boot trainers so maybe there is a hole in my wardrobe….!
I’m in the market for a pair of navy trainers, and those are fabulous! Very tempting…
Love the orange jumper on you, such a great look
