Funny how trends get under your skin, no matter how hard you try and resist. Not that I’m trying very hard, mind you, even though I don’t wear color, I AM pretty adventurous with my sartorial choices, I think, always trying new silhouettes to see if they’ll work on me. I may draw the line at culottes though. We’ll see.
But I did mention that I’d been wanting a pair of white sneakers in my “dreaming of spring” post recently, and even though I’m trying to get by with my Play CdG x Converse sneakers (that are off-white, and that I don’t really love the way they look on my foot…), I’m still obsessed with WHITE white sneakers. The Eileen Fisher pair, specifically. They look like EXACTLY what I want. But they’re beyond what I’m willing to pay.
I do also like the Superga pair at Steven Alan, with the velcro closures, and they’re more in my budget, but they’re sold out and may or may not be restocked in my size. Maybe a pair of white espadrilles is more my style though?
And white Birkenstocks. Hmmm..I can’t quite get behind those, but they’re EVERYWHERE. I love my Birkenstocks, but I, personally, cannot imagine wearing white ones. They’re so sterile looking. Or something. But, I do love the look of them, especially in that outfit I featured with the gray coat by AYR. Maybe they just “work” as part of an all white outfit? Would they look funny with mostly black?
I don’t think I’ll be wearing all white this spring, or ever. But I will admit that every once in a while I consider a long white boho-y dress for the hot summer months. I do appreciate the “clean” minimal look of a crisp white dress, but in general I think white is much harder to wear. For obvious reasons of cleanliness, but also how it looks on the body. I’ve never been a fan of white on my lower half, for example…
One thing I do know I’m getting this spring is the Everlane market tote, in Gesso. When this first came out I believe I mentioned that I was tempted by the light grey. But I told myself I would be “happier” with the black one, and decided to wait for it to come back in stock. I’m not waiting anymore, and anyway, the Gesso just “gets” me, right in the gut. And I think it will go beautifully with all the black & gray in my wardrobe for spring and summer. So…ordered.
What do you think about all white for spring? or white shoes? Will you do it?
