Can’t LIVE Without- Being Casually Cool

This week’s Can’t LIVE Without List is a list of 5 pairs of sneakers I think are fantastic, and that’s  coming from me, a shoe girl, and adds some cool to your casual . I’ve always been a shoe girl but I can’t say I always will be. It’s been very recent that I’ve taken a liking to sneakers. Some strictly for exercise purposes and others to add a little funk and flare to what I’m wearing. These are 5 pairs of sneakers I can’t LIVE without.

Nike’s Women’s Flex 
So, believe it or not, this past valentine’s day my mom gifted me my very first pair of Nike’s. I  know, I know. i tell people to “Nike it.” all the time, but I’ve never sported a pair. Well once she gifted me these I totally felt like I’ve been missing out. Super cute bright color and super comfortable. These have quickly becoming my favorite pair of go to tennis shoes especially when traveling. 

Coach Converse
One of my go to brands is Coach. I’ve got a few bags, wallets, wristlets, boots, sandals, and…sneakers. I love these for a variety of reasons. Maybe because they are cool enough for me to wear to work not just on casual Fridays, and with dress pants and skirts for that oh so classic preppy look. They’re also a different take o the classic converse sneakers. What’s not to like about coaching a classic?

Reebok Run Tone+
They’re perfect for the gym and they’re perfect for my morning mile walk/jog each morning. With a design that allows for the movement of air and extra support on the ball and heel of the foot this sneaker definitely allows me to work out at maximum capacity.

I’ve always had a thing for Puma sneakers. Mostly because I felt like they were pretty close to a shoe and well I’m a shoe girl. I’ve got several pair, and by several, I mean several and I will not disclose a specific amount. Just know, I really like Pumas and you might like them too 🙂

First fell for these bad boys when Julie Sarinana of SincerelyJules rocked a similar pair in black. But then I spotted these oh so sweet leopard pair on the oh so fly Mrs. LaLa Anthony. What’s not to like about them? And can we say GREAT way to add some funk and flare even to the girliest of outfits?!

So I know I’m not the only shoe girl out there having an affair with a few good pairs of sneakers. What sneakers can’t you LIVE without? Let me know! xxoo
