METALLIC SNEAKERS LEND AN URBAN EDGE TO TODAY’S FEATURED OUTFIT, WHICH IS OTHERWISE LADYLIKE, BUT RELAXED. ON THE CITY STEPS ACROSS THE STREET, I NOTE THE BUZZING ENERGY AND CHILL IN THE AIR. STILL! SIGH…
The look today is my signature eclectic, save for the metallic sneakers in shimmery pewter.
Feeling pensive and a bit preoccupied, I am nonetheless relaxed enough to enjoy the outdoors. My floral skirt is a scuba like material, perfect for easy wear and a fun mix with the embroidered sweater. There is a welcomed wedge in my metallic sneakers and I love the boost from this subtle detail. My back also feels better when I wear a heel, but not too high. A striped cotton cardi is nestled at my waist, ready to be slipped on when the wind blows next.

These green floral sunglasses are such fun to wear. Seen here, and worn often, you probably recognize them well by now. They are playful and a bit dramatic, and SOMETHING HAS TO BE GREEN! These photos were taken 10 days ago and the only flowers you will see are the ones on my skirt and sweater! I do feel like this is the 88th day of January and not Mid April ! Who is with me here?
Taken with my new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 this camera delivers depth of field, if the shot is taken from a certain distance. Below a closer look of the top half of my ensemble. Nifty camera option, no? This feature is called Live focus, and I love it!
In front of a colorful backdrop is another shot, sans pewter metallic sneakers.
Honestly , I am not a big fan of the sneaker trend, but these metallic sneakers feel a bit dressed up, They are also embellished with tiny silver crystals, and they feel a bit more glam than a running shoe. Comfort? YES, they are SO comfortable, and a zip up side means no laces to deal with. Easy on- easy off; my kind of shoes!
I do appreciate the ease of an elastic waist skirt, pull on sweater and zip up sneakers. Easy Peasy, yes Pul-leeze !
Did I mention I have been overseeing a renovation for the last 4 months? Indeed, I have, and having been buying all of the materials for that, and keeping a close eye of the project, hinge by hinge, tile by tile. Decorating is fun for me and I do hope our house comes out well. Further, I hope it is done soon as I do love to be in East Hampton when it gets sunny, and before the high season invites manic frenzy and traffic. My family always gathers here, my adult children and my son’s fiancé, sisters, nieces and nephews.
Family time is so special to me! I can not wait to gather there. I hope this post finds you well and enjoying sunshine and all of the things that make you smile! Please let me know how you are faring! XOXO, Elle
