This outfit is pretty casual, although I would argue that you could wear it to a creative work environment, or on casual friday at a more conservative one (with more coverage under the Patti shell though…). The whole look goes “up a notch” with the Elizabeth Suzann mules though, and down with the sneakers.
I think the mules “go” better with the outfit, honestly, but I would rather wear the sneakers. Not that the mules aren’t incredibly comfortable and easy to wear, I just always default to sneakers. I keep buying “grown-up” shoes like the Mules, or oxfords, or loafers, and don’t end up wearing them as much as … you guessed it … sneakers.
And I actually love to take something that’s not casual, like this skirt (although it is pretty casual, it also lends itself to relatively dressy, depending on what you wear it with) and really dress it down by wearing it with sneakers. Juxtaposition every time.
I think I also use the sneakers to try and “fit in” a bit more? Like everyone else wears workout clothes/leggings or jeans and a t-shirt around here, so anytime I wear a skirt or dress, I stick out like crazy. Or feel like I do anyway. So sneakers are a way of bringing it back to “the people” LOL.
Haha. Again…just thoughts while getting dressed 🙂 I think I’ll wear the mules today.
Happy Monday!!! If you have a super-casual lifestyle, do you tend to default to sneakers? What type of shoes do you wear the most?
