This post is called sporty chic 2.0 because the 1st sporty chic version was this one. So, SO long ago… One of the first months I was a redhead. My hair was actually redder and less copper back then, but I’ve found my color after that time. Back to today though, or more accurately yesterday, when we took these photos; I originally wanted to pair this outfit with heels, but I’ve put my sneakers on to run to the car to take something, and I looked in the mirror and thought, “I like it”. And since I was going for breakfast and coffee after these photos, I thought it would be more appropriate to wear sneakers than heels, so I changed my mind. You’ve seen me hundreds of time wearing heels, but only a handful wearing sneakers, so I guess that’s a refreshing change from my usual routine. What do you think?
The other day, when I was telling you how you can wear your pencil skirts in everyday outfits, I got inspired to show you a very casual version of it. In fact this is a sporty way to wear your pencil skirt, and it’s actually a combination I quite liked. I stepped away from the safety of the skirt’s colors and played with the basic white to make the outfit really pop. I combined my All-stars with my white backpack to make the outfit even more young and playful, and then I glammed it up on the top part with a statement necklace, a blazer and a red lip. What do you think?
For some countries, like mine, school doesn’t start for another month or so, for others, school has already started, or is going to start soon. Either way when I wore this outfit, it was the first thing that came to mind. I could have worn this outfit to my first day back at school if I was still in high school. This dress is also one of my most recent purchases, along with the starfish playsuit you saw on my previous post, and I really loved it. So I’m sure you’re gonna it again in other combinations soon. This time, I dressed it down with my converse sneakers, but for the next time, I’m thinking heels. To be honest, I thought these photos were going to be a total failure, since we were late, and we took them right after sundown. But with a little camera work, and some editing after it, they were decent enough to be posted. More than decent; they surpassed my expectations, given the fact that I had them written off. That was definitely a pleasant surprise. What do you think about this look, dear readers?
This was one of those “spur-of-the-moment” outfits that I wore a couple of weeks ago to meet with the girls. I was originally going to wear my white high heeled pumps with this outfit, that were going to make this look far more “bad-ass” compared to how it looks now, but killer heels aren’t meant for lots of walking, and I wasn’t in the mood to walk on high heels that day. It doesn’t happen often, but I do prefer lower heels or plain flats from time to time, and even though the look would have been so much better with heels, I “sacrificed” it for the sake of comfort. I did however love this look, with or without heels, and it was nice to find this bad-girl tee from my teenage years, in my closet. It is a bit short, but it looks great with high waisted bottoms. What do you think about this look?
Last week I received my latest order from the online shop spartoo.gr. I ordered another pair of booties but this time I went for something “sporty” chic. These faux-leather ankle boots, are from the brand Gas, they have a 12cm heel, and laces. They weren’t exactly as they seem in pictures, but they’re really nice. Haven’t worn them so far, but I sure will during winter….Do you like them?
