Off The Field

When I was younger, I went through a tomboy stage. My idol was Michael Jordan, I wore basketball jerseys every day, and I had a bowl cut rivaling any guy I knew. While the not-so-stylish combinations of my younger self will forever go down in history as "Never again", I didn't have it all wrong. The big factor for me back in the day was dressing for comfort, which is exactly why I love the sporty trend that's in full force this spring.

In Part II (Check out us rocking florals in Part I) of my team up with Blair from The Fox and She and Cait from Pretty & Fun, we took the sporty look off the field & into the streets of Chicago. Sneakers are a huge trend in the fashion world right now - I've seen it paired with everything from skirts to trousers. It seems that the "throw it on and go" look works best, which is perfect in my book because it's so easy. Anyone want to join in my mission to make this trend stay for good?


For my look, I paired my favorite red Converse sneakers with a white, breezy dress. A statement necklace & reflective sunglasses were added to glam it up a bit. Swing by Blair & Cait's blogs for details on their looks!
