Dress & Sneakers

Grey striped dress Gap, similar 
Metallic hand bag satchel Stella Rittwagen, another metallic satchel here 
H&M grey sneakers, similar

If you've been around, you know I normally don't do sneakers. No matter how trendy and chic they may currently be. I think we have to accept wether something works for us or against us. 
I think sneakers work against me, but this does not hold me back on giving them a try, this time with a dress. It's a trend I've seen done, sometimes magically, others not so. 
Today seemed like the day to try it. In fact, I actually pulled this dress out of the give away bag (a total first!) to make this outfit come together. 
If I had to rate it from a scale of 1 to 10, I think I'd be a 6 or 7. I want to know what you think, rate it.

A solid 8 from me, Lorena. It's the overall outfit vibe that I really like. The stripes, with the pop of orange, the bright yellow cardi (perfect), and then the nice rubber toe on the sneaks. A great way to try - and succeed! - at this trend.

I love this outfit - your vest adds a nice touch of colour and I'm glad you could get your dress out of the donate bag again! :)

This is the kind of outfit I'm frequently wearing, I love pairing Converse with my dresses.

Hope you are having a great week :) I went to a blogging event today, it was a lot of fun :)

I am always a big fan of sneakers paired with a cute dress - I like the casual vibe of it and I think it's really working for you here!

I have to admit, I never thought I'd wear dresses and sneakers, but it's really practical. And now with the fun color sneakers and styles, it seems so modern!!
