Sneakers All Day Everyday

My sneakers game has definitely stepped it up a notch this year. Up until recently, some form of raised heel was pretty much a requirement for me. Being that I am only 5’2″, wearing flats just left me feeling, well short! I’m not really sure what the game changer was in my mindset. Especially since I haven’t gotten any taller! Perhaps comfort and easy just finally won me over. Plus who knew tennis shoes could look so stinkin’ cute in so many looks??! I also styled this classic Nike pairΒ HERE in a bit of a business casual approach.

Are you embracing the sneaker scene?

P.S. We woke up to a beautiful view of snow this morning!! It hasn’t snowed here in Houston since 2009 so our family was pretty excited about it!Β Thought I would throw in a shot of our view, my oldest carefully touching the snow, and a snow selfie. πŸ™‚

There is also a new music diary entry up. I’m chatting about my holiday music preference this year. You can read about it HERE.

Happy Friday friends!

    This is super cool – I love those sneakers! I’m 5’2 and I always buy some type of raised sneaker, haha, because I like to be comfy but tall. πŸ™‚ I love how you included your favorite Christmas song too – and oh my gosh, I did NOT know it snowed in Houston. It looks gorgeous though! I’m in Phoenix, so we never get any snow. Ever. So I like pictures of snow – love your boots, too!

      Thanks Melissa! Yes, platform sneakers are perfection for us shorties! πŸ˜‰ I’m glad you enjoyed the music. Isn’t that song pretty?? As far as snow here, it actually doesn’t really ever snow here either!! The last time we saw snow here was 2009. It was definitely a nice treat to wake up to this morning. Thank you for reading. Have a great weekend! xo

    I definitely need to buy a new pair of sneakers myself.. Perhaps I should put some on my Christmas list? I also LOVE your bobble hat by the way!

    • Reply Annette 8 December 2017 at 2:48 PM

    Ooow, I love those sneakers!! I’m 5’6″ and even though that’s sort of average, heels always made me feel too tall, so I’m ALL about the sneakers, too!

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to wear my sneakers without looking like I’m heading to the gym. You do it so effortlessly!

    • Reply Annette 11 December 2017 at 11:24 AM

      Thank you Marcie. I think at first it’s a mindset, but a couple times in it feels like 2nd nature and you will be wearing them with your formal dresses. lol πŸ˜‰

    As a crazy busy mama I LOVE my sneakers! But, I also want them to be stylish. I LOVE all of your picks, and need so many of these in my life!!! I will definitely be adding these Nikes to my wish list!

    I live in my sneakers. Been wearing New Balance the last few years. Used to always be Nike’s. Song is beautiful. One of my favs is the Trans-Siberian Orchestras Christmas Canon. Annette you always look good in any kind of hat. The snow was great and we didn’t have to shovel!! We beat our family in Ohio for the snow this year. Go figure. Weather folks said we would get it because of the hurricane. Anyway enough of the weather. Love the outfit. You look great

      Yes the snow was awesome…I think we beat a lot of people this year with snow. Thank you for reading.

    I’m also 5’2″ so I know the feeling. I usually wear heels on the blog, but I’ve been gravitating more toward sneakers and flats, too. I think it’s because they’re so cute these days — like yours! I just have to do a better job of not photographing short, lol.

    • Reply Annette 14 December 2017 at 8:12 AM

      Yes, it does require the rest of our outfit to work extra hard to cover the elongating aspect needed for us shorties lol.

    I pretty much wear sneakers all the time, I’m a huge fan of the juxtaposition of sneakers with dresses too!
