The New Closet Staple

nordstrom dress

I’m having flashbacks to middle school where everyone had those white sneakers! I think that was around the Sketchers & Doc Martins phase (but, for real, kids these days have no idea what true style is!) As I’ve been scrolling through my IG feed, I can’t help but notice that my childhood is making a comeback! Chokers, white sneakers, patched denim & jean jackets — 90’s, I’m so glad you’re back. It’ll just be a short amount of time before slap stick bracelets are upon us (Oh, and can we please make tamogatchi’s a thing again?)

nordstrom anniversary sale 2016

Don’t forget to catch my post on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beginning THURSDAY! It’s the biggest sale of the year & I’m sharing some tricks of the trade! Also: I’ve created a NSALE header so you can easily follow along with all the fun!


I realize that these ‘trends’ won’t be here to stay forever, but if you’re going to add one item to your closet staples, 2 words: white sneakers. They’re taking over the sidewalks of Chicago. The perfect blend of 9-5 meets off-duty (literally take them anywhere!) — These kicks are here to stay, and everyone from celebrities to fashion editors are rockin’ the trend.




I paired mine with a casual little black dress (under $50! I just love the sporty twist!) while picking up fresh blooms from the farmers market, and visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo. It’s become one of my favorite weekend dates with my soon-to-be-hubby & we absolutely love starting the day early. (My ‘going out’ days are over, ha!)

    I used to hate white sneakers when I was younger and now I practically live in them. It’s crazy how tastes change as you grow up. xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias
