A Life of Style
You guys know I love a trainer. From neon colours to hi-tops, I have a real gang of cushy friends I know I can count on whenever I need that extra spring in my step on these busy or comfy days. Especially at the moment, with the heavy legs and the obvious lack of balance (who breaks their elbow so stupidly?!), I had to extend the family, just because really.
So when Ugg asked me to take part in their #alifeofstyle campaign (read my interview here, talking morning routine, how I got into confidence consulting and more) I found new solace in both these pairs of trainers and styled them with 2 outfits, that sum up quite a bit how I’m doing my walkings this summer.
I can’t get enough of the sheepskin model and couldn’t resist a bit of texture clash when I paired them with this disco top, metallic skirt and fluffy clutch. Because no one said you couldn’t be dazzly, soft, glittery and cushy at the same time. I am every woman and I dare you to stop me, ah!
We wandered to take these photos with the boy, around Herne Hill and some of our fave spots such as The Florence where they do beautiful hot dogs, and Brockwell Park – alwways a good idea when one wants to take a dip in the Lido or just walk off aforementioned heavy legs.
Conscious that I could scare some of you away (please don’t go), I went for something much more sober and classy for the second outfit. A perfect mix for the office really since you’ll be bouncing on your feet yet rocking a cami top-blazer combo cute enough for you to get away with your cushy soles, should your office rules be on the not-so-fun spectrum. It’s all about compromise, trust the trainer addict in me, you can rock sneakers (I hear ya my US friends) pretty much everywhere. I absolutely love this loose and simple yet fancy looking look, a standard go-to for those shoot days or errands in the city.
I must admit until recently I didn’t know that Ugg was such a cool stop for trainers, I thought they were making boots only. Now I have this brown pair on my radar too, and I’m spying a very cool nude look that’ll justify their acquisition..
