I've lived the majority of my adult life at least 4 inches above ground but 2014 gave me a new perspective on ground level when I transitioned sneakers from workout gear to casual style.
"Fashion sneakers" have been a major style trend over the past few seasons and I even featured the look as a fashion editor in my watch-list last Spring, but my obsession with heels prolonged the inclusion into my personal style. However, by day 5 and with a schedule from 10 am to 9pm, my feet were in need of some serious TLC and these Nike sneakers came to the rescue.
What I love most about these sneakers, is how the neutral tones of gray, black and white, contrast with the pop of pink. They are not only chic and comfortable, but contrary to my position years back, also stylish and fashion-forward.
Now to the outfit! I've had this rose gold jeans from BCBG for a few months now, but didn't have the right complement nor occasion to wear it. I found this faux leather rose gold cropped top at Forever21 right before my Jamaican vacation, and thought this was it but didn't get the urge to wear the outfit until Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Though the smallest size in the top was still big, I decided to buy it anyways and have it altered. I always advise my clients to do the same when they're having difficulties finding the right fit due to their body structure.
Not only am I conscious when it comes to baring skin in a cropped topped, but I was also dressing for winter so I layered the rose gold set with a classic white boyfriend shirt from Joe Fresh. I layered that with a camel boyfriend jacket from Forever21 and accessorized the look with my Chanel Le Boy, Bulova watch and American Eagle aviators, keeping the jewelry very minimal given the overall metallics. Initially, I had planned to pair the look with my Christian Louboutin white python pigalle heels but my feet had different ideas and I conceded. I did however switch into them for the final shows that evening, ending in true poshestyle.
