{ white shoes }

I did part one of this post last week…& as promised, here’s part two:

Apparently it’s too difficult for me to buy only black gym shoes. I HAVE to get white too— my obsession with white shoes just runs too deep I guess. I think I have some weird mind game that I play with myself to see how long they can stay clean? Or maybe white= clean & I’m just OCD? I don’t know?


these ones are BEAUTIFUL.

They’re soooooo good.

& under $100.

For some reason I’m very much drawn to the idea of having one black pair & one white pair ( < if you order, get a 1/2 size larger, they run small ). For fitness I’ve been on a black & white kick lately ( reason for sharing this post ) & for regular clothes I’ve been drawn to the opposite, textures: polka dots, jeans, suede, velvet, MUSTARD YELLOW, the works. Having a white & black pair of go-to shoes makes it easy too. It’s sleek kinda, you know?

You know what’s not sleek?

Working out in your pajamas.

Literally though, I did that. Today, actually. In my complex’s gym. In front of like 30 people.

( if you follow along on Snapchat, you know this already though ).

I didn’t get enough sleep last night so I rolled out of bed, grabbed a piece of toast with raw almond butter, & just wore my pink and white striped pajamas to workout. CHIC.

And then an older lady on the treadmill sternly told me & my friend ‘TONE IT DOWN’ ( her exact words ) because we were talking too loud ( for the record we were using normal voices ). Maybe the striped pajamas turned her off, who knows. I told her I would use my library voice next time. Kidding, I didn’t say anything because well, I was wearing pajamas.

Anyway, I’m obsessed with these white beauties. Let me know if you have any black & white workout clothes recommendations. Currently working on my fitness wardrobe. Keeping it very Victoria Beckham-esque hence the 2 new pairs of shoes.

Hopefully these ones go with pink striped PJ’s.

Happy Thursday! x, lauryn

  1. Love the coffee table books! And white sneakers to throw on with everything. Especially walking around New York City, its essential to be wearing comfortable shoes!

    1. Hi Samantha, omg yes! NYC you do so much walking! What area do you live in? I love NYC I’ll be there next week would love some recommendations for places to eat! Thanks for reading :)) xx

  2. I love black & white options too! I only wear Nike sneaks, but after having two foot surgeries I switched from running in Nike free runs to the lunars because they have SO much more support. For everyday I’m currently obsessing over the Isabel Marant Bart sneakers in white with the black tab on the back. Tell me if I should splurge on them;) Xx

    1. Hi Kaitlin,

      Why did you have to have foot surgery?? Are you doing anything for post surgery recovery? Our feet are so important for our entire body’s structure and posture. Do you do foot stretches?

      Thanks for the recommendations :))


    1. Hi Alex, yes doesn’t it rain a lot in Scotland? So cool you are reading my blog all the way from Scotland! Thanks for reading :)) xx

  3. I love these! I’m with you, I love everything white. My husband says it’s unrealistic because we have two kids, two dogs, and a cat.. plus I have a husband that likes to spill things (read: coffee.) But I can’t stop, won’t stop. My OCD says WHITE WHITE ERRRYTHIN!

  4. I love the shoes && LOVE that you have them sitting on Fashion Books! So chic, just like you!
    I am getting married in two weeks, I HAVE to win the giveaway!! It would be the best gift I receive 🙂

      Congrats on getting married! Shoot I already picked a winner :(( But thank you so much for participating. I hope you’re wedding is so much fun and I wish you and your new hubby a happy forever together :))


  5. You can never go wrong with white shoes. I love these!! I either want super bright shoes or all white (or black!). LOVE your taste as always <3

  6. I love the look of white sneakers but the maintenance of it seems like a chore so I stick to the neon ones.

    1. Hi Anita, I know. White can get dirty. I get so mad when Michael steps on them! LOL. I just love the look, and love them even more as decor around the house. Thanks for reading :)) xx

  7. I’m obsessed with white shoes too. Actually I’m obsessed with white everything. White car, white furniture, white laptop, white phone, white TV and so on. It’s just the most amazing colour..!

    1. Hi Mia, omg SAAAMMME. It’s my favorite color. White couch, white chairs, white, white, white. Do you have kids? Everyone says I’ll have to give up the white when I have kids. I don’t want to! LOL! Thanks for reading

  8. Those shoes are so nice, they would really be an added kick to an outfit. Pun intended.

    1. Hi Tegan, I literally just LOL’ed when I read you comment. Thanks for the laugh and thank you for reading

  9. I recently did a blog post on my favorite Forever 21 workout pieces. Would love for you to check it out!

    1. Hi Jeanne, the workouts clothes you posted are super cute! I love the laser cut top and the sports bras. And the leggings! Eeek! I love it all :)) Cute blog. Thanks for reading

  10. I love white as well! I just think it pops out more instead of just black.

    And also I’m totally on the bandwagon on wearing PJ’s to workout LOL. I don’t have a gym membership mostly because on a student budget I can’t afford one, and I usually workout at home, so PJ’s are always a yay for me plus who wants to do extra laundry anyways? 😀
