Keeping It Casual In Skinny Jeans & Trainers

When the sneakers/trainers trend became fashionable again earlier this year, I wasn’t really feeling it and I didn’t want to jump on board. While I think they look cool in neon colours when worn with cuffed skinny jeans or pants, I don’t like them worn with dresses, skirts or more dressier pieces. Even though I am attracted to the bright shades, my feet are pretty big in proportion to my legs, which often means that I can only pick flat shoes that are slim, or I risk looking like the next Crusty the clown! One pair of trainers that came out a little while ago though was these ASH Dino Trainers in Beige from Daniel Footwear. The thing that attracted me to them and made me fall in love with them was the fact that they do have a concealed wedge inside which you can’t really see, yet they still remain sporty.

It’s somewhat of a refreshing change actually walking around in trainers at the moment! I’m so used to heels or espadrilles, I had forgotten the hidden comforts of sports shoes and considering I used to live in them when I was younger, that’s saying something! I genuinely adore these though due to them being a versatile colour, I’ve worn them plenty of times for shopping and my day trip to Wales last week, however I decided to wear them then with neon orange socks to be different! You can see an Instagram photo of that by clicking here.

Now moving onto the outfit, I wanted to keep things casual so I decided upon my older 7 For All Mankind Gwenevere skinny jeans in Zuma Sunset and my Sparkle & Fade beige top. I then chose my Mulberry Alexa Clutch in Sparkle Tweed Powder Beige and my Olivia Burton Butterfly Watch. I then layered on my Topshop Cross Necklace and wore my Azendi Pearl Earrings (you can see these up close if you scroll down and read more about them). Overall it’s an incredibly comfortable outfit and definitely one that I would wear again! As a general unspoken rule among fashion bloggers, you shouldn’t repeat outfits, but I wore something very similar to this a couple of years ago, minus the shoes, and I still love it. I don’t think you can beat something classic and easy going! What do you think of the outfit? I would love to know your thoughts!

And here are the gorgeous Azendi Ivory Pearl Drop Earrings that I got from the brand along with my Carousel Blue Earrings. Aren’t they pretty?

I had always wanted a pair of classic earrings, ones that can really be dressed up and give off that mature vibe, so I am happy to say I have found that in these! Pearls are always classy and you can’t go wrong with them. Do you like pearl earrings too?

    I love jeans and trainers. I lived in them for years and years. The earrings add a lot and make the outfit more elegant! Love them!

    Sometimes casual outfits are just the best. I love the top, looks really nice, and I love the combination with the light colored jeans. Your Mulberry is also very pretty!
