Here’s a bit of good news that just might put a little pep in your step.  This season, women of every age are placing their stilettos in timeout and opting instead for a cute and comfy pair of sneakers!

Here’s what I wore with my comfy white leather lace ups.

On a recent trip to Nordstrom to give my spring/summer season a little jump start, this outfit whispered, “take me home with you”. Who am I to argue with a cool and trending look?

This outfit is casual, stylish and comfortable enough to wear all season. Best of all, adding a pair of sneakers would be the perfect choice, allowing me to be comfy, yet still in style.

This navy jacket by Caslon was one of my favorites, light weight with full-length sleeves that can be rolled up or down, depending upon the weather. Fun pockets and buttons add nice detailing.

Check out the fun inverted pleat in the back for extra fabulousness! And get this, this versatile little number is priced at under $80.00! Boom.

The cute striped (totally trending) Madewell Cotton Tank will spend more time out of the closet than in this season ~ under $20.00.

We came upon 185 pounds of handsomeness during our photoshoot, which prompted a mandatory snugglethon. Fortunately for me, Charlie approved of my outfit.

Nothing screams spring and summer like a classic pair of shades and these beauties by Prada are at the top of my must-have list. They are absolutely SPECTACular!

    Perfect look for sneakers! I hope your outfit didn’t get slobbered on! I have the same breed and only get dressed just as I’m heading out the door! x

      Hi Laurie, thanks so much for your comment. No drool pool from this big beautiful boy. Our dogs are small too, but I’m a dog stalker and whenever I see one, with permission, they are going to get snuggled. Xo Jonet
