Sometimes all you're in the mood for is a pair of great sweats and your most comfiest sneakers. That's kinda what happened here, although, I gave it a little twist as you can tell. I like to look slightly put together, even on my off days, and worn out sweats just do not suffice unless it's in the privacy of my own home. There is a modern way of wearing lounge-wear outside of your home, where you get to play with textures, fabrics, silhouettes, and yes, make it wearable for an evening out.

I layered a classic white button-up under a crocodile textured top to give the look dimension. I usually throw on a tee with these leather joggers, simple but indeed lackluster, so layering these tops together was an interesting take and quite refreshing. I played up the sporty-chic vibe by adding a pair of Roshe's. To take the look from day to evening appropriate, I would easily switch out the sneakers for strappy heeled sandals or even a pair of suede stilettos. 

I love me a tight top-knot bun. They're perfect for second or third day hair and can give any outfit an effortless yet chic feel. I try to stay away from the sock buns that everyone, including myself, was into at one point because it is a little too ballerina meets preppy for my style. But hey, if it works for you, by all means!

Sneakers are hot right now and I am all over it! I've always loved and owned Converse, Vans, and Nike's for their utilitarian purposes for school, running errands, working out, etc. But lately, I've been mixing my more stylish pieces with sneakers to attain that off-duty meets casual-luxe feel. It's unexpected to throw on a pair of Nike's with a leather mini or pants. I like when you can look at an outfit and think, "I probably wouldn't have put that together initially, but it works and I dig it!" That's honestly what style is all about; taking risks and inspiring others!

I actually purchased these sneakers in NYC because the other shoes I had packed were giving me blisters and were just not suited for the miles of walking I was doing on the daily. These Roshe's were pretty comfy but I wouldn't say they're intended for athletic purposes. They definitely served their purpose of being a fashionable sneaker though!
