Working sneakers


In fact my feet are better now (and gearing up for another game of squash this weekend, uh oh…) but following a few requests for fashion in sneakers, here is one variation of the look I was working with the first half of the week.

I didn’t bother trying to hide them because that would be futile but I did distract from them with plentiful neck embellishment.  Mixed reactions to the necklace over scarf look ensued.  I also wore these super high waist leggings because they lengthen the leg plus they are a little sporty and so not a huge departure from the footwear.

What’s the verdict?

shirt – Gap (last worn here), stripe tee – H&M (in store but not online)
legging – Zara
sneakers – Nike

necklace – c/o New Look, scarf – c/o Next
leather gloves – Rocha. John Rocha c/o Debenhams (ON SALE!)
leather bag – Autograph @ M&S

lead – Ancol, coat – model’s own c/o Infindigo


P.S.  These are the leggings that beat all leggings – like a tight body glove pulling you in in all the right places.  Love them.

    I love that scarf, it totally distracts from the sneakers, although they don’t bother me. I kind of like this look!

    Every girl needs at least one pair of about town shoes, fashion week is sure to create a few sore tootsies…. My shoes of choice are Mulberry bow flats- super soft.

      these ones are really usually reserved for the gym but needs must! mulberry flats sounds much more stylish

    Love everything, but I do have to admit that necklace over the scarf did leave me mildly amused. 😉
