Taft(ify) Your Closet…

Who’s ready to ditch the heels for a little and put on some cute sneakers, I am!! Growing up, I always saw my mom get all glammed up, even when we were going for a doctor’s visit. She did a full face of makeup and put her heels on. I told myself one day I’ll do the same. Well, I was in love with high stilettos for a long time. Then Gio bought me some cute Roshes and I couldn’t put them down. They were comfortable but you could make them look chic. This whole sneaker thing became popular, to me! Being a girl that is a size 9.5 or 10, sometimes there are not enough unique shoes that won’t break the bank! So when it came to sneakers I looked in the men’s sales section. Given that most men have bigger feet than me I would find some eye-catching shoes. I became addicted!! When it comes to buying men shoes I try to find a color that works with my personality and taste, look for a style that I can actually see myself wearing and I always try them on. There have been times when I see a men sneaker and I like it, but then I try it on and it looks too bulky.

In this outfit I drew inspiration from those times my mom got all dolled up to go to the doctors but with my twist. This super cute and girly dress is from target’s Mossimo collection. This is such a versatile dress, you can literally combine it whichever way you want!! Let’s not forget about the cold shoulders part. It’s been such a huge trend, I love it!!! OK, well this dress I paired with my new Taft sneakers. If you didn’t guess this part I’m going to tell you, they are men shoes! So Taft was getting ready to launch the sneakers and I came across their promotion pictures and these Jawbreakers caught my eyes!! They are so simple in design but have so many wow factors. For example the brown color inside stands out because of  the brown dots on the outside. Then if you look on the outside the texture of the wool and the different color dots create a 3D effect. When pairing the two together I wanted something that would make the shoes stand out, and for me the black and white polka dot dress did the trick! There’s something about tan neutral that stand out against black. Now I am all arreglada (glammed up) and ready to go pick up some fresh fruta! If you too like these sneakers go take a look at Taft!
