A Modern Sporty Way to Style a Dress for Fall
You remember THIS POST on retro sneakers?
Welcome back, baby!
I remember the Reeboks that I wore to step class at the gym, the Chuck Taylors I wore for a date, and some of the other sneakers that were piled into my closet.
When I saw these Rag and Bone sneakers during the Nordstrom Sale, I was in love. I am sure my subconscious knew that I must have had a similar pair back in the day! I loved the colors and the sleek profile. Nothing clunky here.
However, as part of the “Sale” they were still $200. I may spend that on a pair of Italian boots or loafers ( or a bit more) but not sneakers.
It does seem like I have been buying up sneakers lately though, due to Pudendal Neuralgia, so they came at the right time.
I found these looking up “retro sneakers” as they were on Zappos, for I think, one day, at $100. So, I snapped those up!
The colorway that I was eyeing- the rust/orange was not available, so I thought to pick a neutral. This Rag and Bone shoe is a great shade o darker tan, with a mustard yellow design. Just to note, if you have wide feet, I wouldn’t recommend these shoes. I have an average medium with foot, and found that I could have gone up 1/2 size more, but the 8.5 (which is a half-size up from my normal 8) was fine. I just couldn’t wear socks with them. So, keep this tip in mind, if you find you are fancying this retro sneaker.
As always, I am loving blazers. I am particurly fond of checked or plaid blazers. H&M is another great place for blazers, just read about the sizing on their site.
So, an open Fal blazer, with a basic chestnut colored dress and retro sneakers are a fun way to issue in Fall, especially if you aren’t wearing boots or booties yet.
Well, we got home last evening after spending a few days in Asheville. A relaxing trip that my hubby also thought would take my mind off of my health issues for a bit. (You can’t help but be reminded if it carrying a gigantic black cushion wherever you go to sit on. I used to say to my friend, people must think my *** is made of gold, and I must have a cushion to sit on before my butt touches the chairs! Haha.
I may try and do a short recap about Asheville on Friday then.
Otherwise, not much on the home front, other than a bazillian doctor’s appointments set up. When you know the treat of the day is your PT appointment, you must lead a really interesting life!
So, there will be specialists and nerve blocks in the near future.
Do you like to wear sneakers with dresses? How do you style them for the Fall?
