Everyday Dressing Elevated || Investing In Comfort: Perforated White Kicks

Over the years, I’ve become much more mindful as to which items I choose to invest in. My criteria have narrowed, and I’ve become more particular. One such area has been in the shoe department. You see, I have quite the heel collection sitting in my closet…. and I can pretty much tell you when, where, and why each pair was purchased, as most were for a special occasion (like my wedding shoes my mom and I drove all over LA searching for…). Yet, over the past year or so (okay, since I became a mom) they’ve started to gather dust. We don’t really work the wedding circuit anymore (where they got the most wear….)… and let’s be honest, a pair of four inch heels aren’t going to come out that often when you work from home. TJ and I tend to opt for day dates over the late evenings that used to be a regular weekend occurrence… and even when we do head out, I typically prefer a lower block heel….. so, if you haven’t guessed it, heels aren’t really where I’m investing….

What I do wear day in and day out are comfortable kicks. I’ve become relatively effective at identifying comfort in sneakers. Do they feel like I’m walking on clouds (or air, whichever you prefer….)? Are they well made… hold up and won’t fall apart after a few days wear? Is there something unique about them that makes it worth the investment? Needless to say, my sneaker collection is rapidly starting to out number my heels. One of the most recent additions to this collection are these white perforated kicks (they also come in a gorgeous blush) from Greats. They meet all my criteria when choosing to invest in a pair of sneakers: amazingly comfortable, incredibly well made, and the perforated look makes them super chic… and adds a little edge. I’m also loving this slip on pair in blush, and considering buying TJ a pair for Father’s Day (his shoe collection rivals mine….)…..

And, since sneakers pretty much go with anything these days, investing in a pair is a no brainer for me. I wear them everywhere, and pretty much with anything…. leggings, jeans, cut-offs, dresses, and my new favorite spring/summer obsession: rompers. Pairing one with sneakers makes them daytime appropriate and super casual…. and I love the alternative rompers (when they’re functional like this one) provide to shorts and a tee….

A few other items I’d easily pair these cute kicks with include this jumpsuit (obsessed with its laid back feel), olive green romper, white eyelet dress, stripe bell sleeve dress, and this tier bell sleeved teecut-offs combination. Either option I choose, at least I know my feet will be loving me.
