Snooping…trends and comfy kicks

I spent the last two days in my old stomping   grounds – the NY Garment Center, visiting with old friends and seeing their latest and greatest. The hottest trends on hand for summer and even for the upcoming fall were woven blouses and dresses with details like smocking, inset lace, gorgeous florals, pom poms and of course off the shoulder and cold shoulder looks.  I also saw great maxi dresses and super cute screen tees.  I’m so excited to share all of these with you!

I’m my younger days – when the weather was warm, I’d run around from the train to the market in flip flops or Dr. Scholls. Well I tried flips yesterday and my feet and back were a mess!  Today – I threw on my trusty Chuck slip ons and all was well as I ran here and there. The best part about today’s Converse sneakers is that they are stylish and look great with everything from skirts and dresses to jeans and leggings. Best of all they allow you to be on the go.  If lots of walking is part of your summer plans – be sure to check out these two Converse Styles: first the ones I have on in the pic “Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Slip-on Low Tops,” on sale at Nike.com for $44.97. 
And then the “Chuck Taylor® ‘Shoreline’ Sneaker” style which is a bit more refined and has laces that are just for show at Nordstrom.com for  $49.95.


I own both and I can say for certain – they should be the top of your packing list for any upcoming summer activities that include lots of walking. In good style, Amy xoxo
