To Do: Sneakers

A fresh pair of sneakers should be a New Year's tradition! What better way to set out for 12 months of new adventures? Plus, they're very Kathryn Hepburn/Tea Leoni when paired with wide leg pants, a blouse and blazer.

Tretorn (they're a friend of the blog and recently sent me a pair of sweet boots to test out) has some classy pairs on sale that would do the trick quite nicely.

oh hey! i do this!!! in fact Im sporting my new pair of white converse today ... every year I go buy one new pair of white converse - - because what is better than crisp white shoes! and then I box up each pair of old ones with a 'love note' from that year to myself of all the things the converse got to do that year (2008 - paris and law school graduation check and check!)

i bought a pair of Tretorn boots this fall - i have to say, they have changed my life! I do live in Seattle, so that's something, but they are truly a stylish way to keep my feet dry this time of year!

NOTHING has happy making power like a new pair of sneakers! i'm a white keds girl myself, love 'em with my dark, wide, high leg jeans and a tucked in v-neck t shirt (very ali macgraw circa 1978).

the one bummer about new sneakers? that first smudge. you try so hard to put it off for as long as possible, but like death and taxes, it is inevitable...
