Boy oh boy, there’s nothing more I love than contrast.

LIKE NOTHING THOUGH.

Especially when it comes to home decor, hair color, & FASHION.

So it’s absolutely NO surprise that this Valentine’s Day you can find me contrasting feminine prints with tennis shoes.

Yes, that’s right, TENNIS shoes. YOU KNOW, like sneakers.

Because heels are predictable & boring for V-Day.

Yawn, yawn, yawn. Trust me, add a tennis shoe with your flirty maxi & you’re good to go.

So side story here: we were eating at Sugarfish ( have you guys been? It’s really the best fucking sushi ever. Think like perfectly warm rice with the best cut of raw fish, a cold beer, & just melt in your mouth goodness ).

AND SUDDENLY I SPOTTED THESE SHOES.

When I looked up to see who was rocking them, it was Hailey Baldwin. AKA Justin Beiber’s latest hook-up, you know the one with the rad braids? Friends with Kendall & Kylie? If you don’t know who I’m talking about, stalk her Instagram & you will get it.

She’s so on point, style-wise. I LOVE.

Anyway, she was rocking these Adidas kicks with a black long sleeve tight dress. So naturally I immediately bought both, the dress AND the shoes, HA! Really though, it looked SOOOO cute on her ( if you’re wondering, here’s the exact one I bought because it looked JUST like the one she was wearing ).

And now I just can’t take these white sneakers off.

( Guys, I have real deal love for these white beauties. Not sponsored, just realness ).

Really, I’ve been wearing them EVERYWHERE.

How 7th grade-chic are they? So TBT in the best way possible. If Michael steps on these ones, I’ll stab him. I KID, I KID.

I mean we already know I have sick, peculiar obsession with white shoes.

White Oxfords, white Converse, white pumps, JUST WHITE OUT. So I’m sure you’re not surprised here?

SO changing directions: how fun is this flirty dress?! For Valentine’s? It blows in the wind perfectly, weird, but it does. THE SLEEVES are beyonddddd. Anyway, you certainly can count on me wearing this get up for Michael on Sunday.

& maybe if he’s lucky I’ll even provide coconut oil ; ).

    OBSESSED with these shoes! I bought a pair last month and will pair them with pretty much every outfit. They will look insane with that black dress! A little tip to keep the whites super white…clorox wipes. They have officially become my tennis shoe cleaners hah!

    And that dress is beyond 🙂
