Tennies & Kicks

They always say that love finds you when you least expect it. And I'm beginning to be a believer. Never one to sport tennies outside of the gym, I don't generally scout for cute ones as I figure they're better snatched by gals who can dress them up better than me. So when my mom gifted me these little kicks last year, I envisioned them working perfectly for taking Chandler out to pee in a jiffy. But flat, small, light and tidy- they've become a staple for so many more situations than that. I love them on my Sundays, I sport them as I scale the many San Francisco hills and I often have them tucked-away in the depths of my purse to replace my heels with the millisecond I leave a fancier event.

Hey, I guess it's true what they say: Tennis shoes, although slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose

haha seems everything has its place indeed and always good when they can do more than take the pup to pee in a jiffy.

Don't you just love it when you end up finding something that you love when you first think that you're not going to like it? I love it when you find cute and stylish shoes that are also comfortable!

Super cute outfit! Isn't it funny how we can fall in love with a piece that we never fully envisioned before? And yessss to toting them around to change into as soon as you're done with your fancy heels? <3

I am a huge fan of flat casual sneakers and shoes. I wear them constantly and own many pairs.

I used to loathe them too!

You did a great job of dressing them up!

So true...! I've always got flats with me. Actually, I rarely wear heels anymore. The island lifestyle has taken over and I love wearing my sliders...!

Don't you love when you can find an occasion to quote Dumb and Dumber? 😊
