Matching with the Cherry Blossoms

Summer is finally here! It felt like the drippy weather was never going to end! I am so happy to be getting outside, feeling that warm summer breeze and just embracing the season. It certainly is one of my favourite times of the year.

It is time to put your winter boots away and pull out the outdoor kicks! I love shoes, but I have never been one to wear sneakers as my every day. I love my flip flops and pretty much live in them throughout the summer. However, I recently have been getting a lot more active and sneakers are becoming my number one choice.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Skechers (here and here). I recently received this amazing pair of “Flex Appeal” Skechers running shoes. They are pretty much what I live in now. They have air cooled memory foam technology in the soles which make them light, airy and completely comfortable. Also, they are PINK (that’s my kind of shoe). I love how great they make my feet feel, and how stylish they are all at the same time.

I recently trekked down to High Park to do some city sight seeing. Early May is the peak time to view the cherry blossoms bloom, and there was no way I was going to miss out on something so beautiful! I don’t live right in Toronto, so it was definitely a hike to get there, but I made it and I definitely didn’t mind matching with the blossoms.

For this look, I didn’t want to look super sporty. I also wanted pink to be the POP of my look, so I paired the shoes with some more casual and muted pieces (i.e. denim jacket, black jeans, etc.). The eye-catching pink scarf pulls the look together because of the POP of pink in the shoes (side note: it was way too hot for a scarf…oh well). I really love how this look was so simple to style and throw together!

Skechers is my go-to for in style, casual and cute shoes. As a bonus (and I really mean bonus, because women do not emphasize this certain factor in most shoe scenarios), they are SO COMFORTABLE. I cannot say that enough!

Keep it cute and casual with Skechers this season!

Running into Summer w/ Skechers

There is nothing that makes me happier than a bright and sunny weekend! After way too many months of winter, it’s about time that the snow melted away and the sun came out to play! This past week has been absolutely gorgeous, and I have been fortunate enough to spend majority of my time outside (bonus!).

Tank Top: Forever 21 / Cropped Leggings: Tuff Athletics / Plaid Shirt: Thrifted / Shoes: c/o Skechers / Hat: Eddie Bauer

I love being active when the good weather comes around. Spending my days in yoga pants and a good pair of runners is heaven because it’s so easy to throw together. Having said that, just because it’s a lazy look, does not mean that you can’t look completely stylish at the same time.

I threw this summer active look together for several purposes – lounging, working out and running long weekend errands. The comfort comes in the simple tank and cropped leggings. However, the style comes in the hat, tied flannel and of course, these new Skechers D’Lites.

Runners are my go-to shoe for the summertime, solely because they are so comfortable and stylish. Summer is a time filled with music festivals, outdoorsy activities, and having fun – and what better shoe to set your feet up with, than these babies. Which is why when the uber-comfortable Skechers D’Lites arrived on my doorstep, I jumped for joy!

Complete with an air-cooled memory foam sole and a slick design in black and white, this shoe is so easy to style and make your best friend this summer. The D’Lites are completely weightless, which makes them a breeze to do any fun summer activity all day in.

From before I can remember, I was sporting Skechers. It is always nice to be able to work with them and share their product! As much as style is so important when choosing a good pair of shoes, you also need to think about the quality. After testing out this newly revamped classic Skechers style, I can assure you that the D’Lites are one pair of shoes that are definitely worth adding to your summer collection.

Keep comfortable this summer!

Getting comfy this Valentine’s Day w/ Skechers

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I don’t know about you guys, but I am pretty sick of winter at this point. It seems like it is going on and on and on! The only benefit of this snowy season is that comfort comes first in the majority of my looks.

Sweater: Winners / Jeans: Forever 21 / Shoes: c/o Skechers

Some of the best outfits that I wear are made up of simple pieces that can easily be thrown together. A simple knit, a pair of jeans and a great pair of kicks make for a comfy and casual outfit for any occasion. Running shoes are great for the gym, but supporting your feet in and out of the gym is important, which is why these are my new go-to shoes.

Skechers Galaxies are the perfect pair of shoes. Being that it is February, I ordered them in Burgandy/Pink – how festive am I? My favourite thing about these kicks is the memory foam sole. That makes them comfortable and more importantly, there was no “break-in” period. They arrived in the mail and were instantly a perfect fit!

I decided to style them with a comfy, casual, dressed down vibe for this look. This over-sized knit sweater is one of the warmest things I own, and a perfect colour match to these runners. This is a super simple outfit to put together, and is perfect for lounging, running errands, or even a low-key casual date (being that it is V-Day)!

Skechers is a brand that I respect and have grown up with. I remember wearing itty-bitty baby runners from Skechers, so this collaboration is a bit nostalgic for me. Quality is what I look for in a good pair of running shoes and these are definitely worth investing in. It also doesn’t hurt that these shoes are super sexy!

Air on the side of comfort this Valentine’s Day!
