Back to Basics

The dread of going back to school as a kid was always slightly assuaged by the shopping trip to buy new outfits for fall. Back to school shopping was something I looked forward to because it usually involved a trip to the Gap or The Limited plus a stop at a local shoe store.

Looking back, it seems like I more often than not chose a new pair of canvas Keds. Something about these simple lace-up sneakers was synonymous with going back to school in September. That little blue rubber Keds rectangular logo on the back of the shoes was part of my childhood.

Walk on the Wild Side: 6 Leopard Print Sneakers To Try

Love it or hate it, animal prints usually sneak their way onto fall runways, and in turn into the stores where we love to shop. I like animal prints in small doses.

We Go High: 4 High-Style High Tops (Part I)

Raw edge cropped jeans. Jogger sweats pulled up slightly at the ankle. Cuffed menswear-style pants.

No matter how you’re wearing the pants right now (and let’s be honest, you always wear the pants), chances are your ankle is exposed. Shorter hemlines on trendy pants have created the perfect opportunity for eye-catching high top sneakers.

Three St. Laurent Must-Haves For Fall.

After a red-eye flight from LA, then a two hour drive home from Dulles airport, I arrived home to find a major Dreambox sitting on my front porch. It evoked a feeling similar to coming home to a bouquet of red roses after a trying day at work (though I’m not sure that’s ever happened to me, but it sounds fabulous). Β Inside the box were my new St. Laurent Court Classic sneakers in Washed Pink that I ordered from Nordstrom because they had one size left and it was MY SIZE and they were on sale. Fate had intervened!
