Adventures in Sneakers

Happy Hump Day, y’all! It is almost the weekend… thank goodness! I am so glad I got to finally finish my blog… it has been a busy week for me between school and work. Last week I had a much-needed girls day with my best friend of 9 years; Jamie. We started our day off with manicures then a really yummy lunch at Tanoshii Ramen in Deep Ellum, which I recommend. We are always dolled up and we both needed a day off and put on our best ‘on the go’ outfit. With that being said, today’s focus will be cute/ fun active wear.


My favorite shoes right now are the ‘Huaraches’. They are an easy slip on, and a trendy sneaker. They come in four different colors and the color I have on is the ‘Cool Grey/ Summit White.’ These are a replica of the ‘Air Huarache Run’ made in 1992. I love when old trends come back in, so don’t toss your shoes out ladies, because you never know when it will come back in.


Let’s talk about light weight! These sneakers are incredibly light and I could wear them all day. I am flat footed with plantar fasciitis on both feet and I can wear these all day.


It is hard for me to find a good pair of leggings that are not see-through. The BP ‘Essential Leggings’ saved my life for that same reason. They do run small so I recommend a size up. Cupcakes and Cashmere have my favorite knit top right now and it is a new markdown; 40 percent off! It is definitely a perfect off-duty comfort tee and it comes in two other colors.

This is my go-to tote of all times; the ‘BP Colorblock Faux Leather Tote’. Whether I am heading to the airport, class, dinner, or to run errands I can put everything I need and it is durable. I’ve had the tan tote for a year now and we just re-stocked for the spring and it comes in two other colors. I am tempted to get the black one too.


It was 65 degrees outside in Dallas and Jamie was comfortable in her orange North Face ‘Glacier’ Quarter-Zip Pullover. I have the light grey/ heather and I am obsessed. You can never have too many North Face fleeces in your closet. I am a huge fan of the Leather Vans she has on. It is so street-chic and I love how she incorporated it into her ‘on the go’ outfit.
