Way To Wear: Nike - Naomi

Topshop Premium White Blazer, Topshop Neon Sporty Dress, Topshop Grey Sweater, Primark Black Clutch, ASOS Sheer White Panel Socks, Nike Metallic Grey & Yellow High Tops








In the past I have always been a 'trainers belong in the gym' kind of girl but as you probably see by my previous blog posts I threw out the rule book and my sanity on moving to London! Now I like to experiment and try new things to see what works for me.

I have had these Nike high tops for around 3 years now and used to get teased in the gym for the eccentric style and pattern (not exactly gym trainers are they!?) Since then I felt like they had a better purpose in life and this outfit proves my point. With my busy lifestyle and being on my feet for 9 hours a day there comes a time when comfort comes into play.

Sports Luxe always makes a comeback, and every year we can clean up our act and strip back from the print overload. See Alexander Wang SS 13 for inspiration. This dress from Topshop is my version of sports luxe- neon and zips make it sporty yet the skater esq skirt and pattern make it girly. I wore it with my white premium blazer to keep it tailored and my grey sweatshirt round my waist for the unpredictable English weather!
Yes I did match the prints on my trainers to my dress (matchy matchy! That's pure luck!)
Dressy up top to get away with the trainer on bottom, I added some white sheer panel socks from ASOS which are perfect for the look and remind me of the sheer panelling on the Alexander Wang collection.

As I'm writing this on the tube I have seen 2 awful cases of black work uniform and formal coat with a bare leg and chunky trainer. Even if your feet are falling off this is NOT acceptable and this is more sports yuck and sports luxe! Sorry guys rant over and back to the point...

Trainers are everywhere in the magazines at the moment in all different prints, colours and styles. I love them worn with a printed trouser or tailored premium jogger and blazer. It's all about getting that balance between casual and chic and feeling 100% confident in your outfit choice! So let's kick back, be on trend and give our feet a rest this summer!

  5. press something that isn’t Replica watches UK even available for purchase? Are Lange and Cartier essentially doing the same thing as Replica handbags , but instead of not offering any watches for sale are offering only a few to nameless clients in Replica Watches far away lands?There are so many wonderful things being done in mechanical watches well below £300,000, but an outsider wouldn’t know handbag replica it based on the press schedules of exhibiting watch brands Rolex Daytona .
