First off, let me say thank you all for inspiring this fun monthly mother/daughter style series. It’s a really cool way for Aubrey and me to bond over fashion. No sooner do we do one until Aubrey is asking me what the next month’s theme will be! We both love being able to connect this way and share our style with you.
Today’s styling idea comes courtesy of the Spring Style Challenge participants. A question that kept coming up in the Facebook group is whether or not sneakers were appropriate for moms of a, umm, certain age and if so, how to pair them up.
To that the answer is a resounding YES! Wear those sneakers! They’re just about the perfect kind of footwear – comfy, cute and casual. If you’re worried that you’ll look like your teenage daughter (or someone else’s), don’t fret. Aubrey and I both wear them on a regular basis. Today we’re showing you our favorite ways to pair them up with stripes and colored denim.
On Alison – Jeans: Similar/Shirt: Same/Sneakers: Same/Denim Jacket: Same
On Aubrey – Jeans: Similar/Sweatshirt: Similar/Sneakers: Same
If you want a great pair of no-show socks, we love these. They don’t slide down and are thicker than most sock liners.
Here are some other cute and classic sneaker options.
