Spring Style with Brooks

spring style

I love how this outfit came together, the way the sneakers smarten up my skirt.  It's a bit unexpected in the best way.  The side slits of the skirt keep this outfit from being too bulky with sneakers.  I found the key to pairing sneakers with a maxi skirt is having these slits, or a front slit, or keeping the length of the skirt ankle length or shorter.

But truly you just gotta try it on and see if it works.

The perfect simplicity of these shoes lend themselves so well to the statement pieces that are so popular this spring.  Embellished everything (like this bomber jacket) and statement tops, petite florals and lots of stripes, statement earrings.  I usually reach for a statement shoe, but I am finding with all these trends I need a shoe that can balance out the busyness.

The Renshaw Sneaker has an all white leather upper and rubber sole bottom, a throwback to the Brooks court shoe that won the US Open in the 1970's, this shoe has all that vintage appeal in a simple silhouette.

So this week Jenn and I are styled our Renshaw sneakers with our 4 favorite spring looks, you can see outfit 1, 2, and 3.  And check back tomorrow for our recap.
