Personal Style Monday | On Trend Wearing Sneakers and Dresses

Happy Monday and happy June! Yes…it’s June already. I still can’t believe it. As quick as June came, I can’t say I’m not happy. I’m really ready for some warm weather, swimming, trips to the beach and cookouts. :-) Speaking of summertime excitement, I’m also excited to try out some summer trends like the one I’m wearing in today’s OOTD – sneakers and dresses.

Lately I’ve noticed the sneakers and dresses trend emerging. While I’m no stranger to this trend, I haven’t actually worn sneakers and dresses in a while. My favorite way to do so is when I’m wearing converses. Something about converses and a maxi dress make me feel ultra chic and relaxed. With today’s look I wanted to try something a bit more fun so, I paired this colorful skater dress with my new Puma’s. This look is 1 of 3 ways I plan to wear the dress this week on the blog. 



Now you may be asking, where would I wear something like this? Well I can think of 4 occasions where the sneakers and dresses trend works; (1) a cute dinner & movie date, (2) an outdoor summer concert, (3) a family/friends summer cookout, and (4) a day of sightseeing while on summer vacation. 

This trend can work for any and everyone. If you don’t want to wear a short dress like this one, try this trend with a maxi skirt. I LOVE how image and style consultant Tieko wears her sneakers with maxi skirts. I actually featured her lok on the blog back in January. Wearing sneakers with midi dresses is also an option. Folake, the always stylish blogger behind Style Pantry, styles this trend effortlessly.

I had A LOT of fun with this look and although it maybe a lot going on with the outfit, I love it! I’m all about pattern play and mixing an matching. Yes, there are certain “rules” I like to follow when wearing patterns and prints, but this look is the perfect example of how to mix prints in a fun and personal way. I stayed true to my personal style, had fun, and managed to look rather cute doing so, if I do say so my self. ;-) When it comes down to it, have fun while exploring your personal style. Take a chance every now and then.


Speaking of having fun with your personal style, take a look at Brittany’s fun and stylish OOTD from last weeks linkup. From the head scarf to the tank top to the acid wash skirt, she’s definitely knows how to have fun with her style! Brittany wore this look to an outdoor event and I think it was the perfect choice, especially since she was surrounded by other bloggers during the event. Go Brittany! :-)

So what’s your take on the sneakers and dresses trend? Have you tried it before? Let me know! 

Now it’s your turn to show off your personal style. Link up your recent OOTD pots(s) below - you just may be my favorite pick for next week. Just be sure to link your outfit back to this post. Also, visit the other bloggers who’ve linked up and say hey.

Thanks for participating and as always, thanks for reading. Don’t forget, I’ll be styling this same dress 2 more times this week on the blog. At the end of the week, you’ll be able to vote for your favorite look! :-) Until tomorrow, be blessed and stay safe…XO!

Facebook Friday: Go Pink Edition


Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am teaming up with my BLM Girls and dedicating today’s post to all things pink. Every year for the past 4 years I’ve participated in the Breast Cancer Walk in my city. This year I won’t be able to but I did donate to the cause. Remember, we all know someone who has been effected by this disease and the sooner we find a cure, the better! So do what you can to make a difference :-)

Have a great weekend and if you can, wear something pink this weekend ;-)
