Fresh Kicks

Happy almost-Friday, gals! Hope your week is going great and you’ve got something fun (…or relaxing) lined up for the weekend. I’m still in full blown SXSW mode over here, so come Sunday, it’s all over and I can assure you that I will not get out of my pajamas for at least one full day, ha! Until then, time to order another drink and rally…y’all…I am going on day 6 of this festival and somehow have had the energy to get out into the madness everyday. One of my best friends is my plus one to all the events this week (Elissa, you’ve seen her act hilarious on my Insta story, I’m sure!), so she definitely encourages the little party person in me to come out…and it has been SO fun! Feeling kind of proud that I have kept up this momentum, I am normally SUCH a granny!

In other news, can we talk about these adorable sneakers?! I am seriously OBSESSED.
Buuut then the spring line launched TODAY and I kind of died because 1. slip-ons and 2. BLUSH PINK.
My sneakers (both the lace-up and slip-on) are by Greats and OMG they are magical!!! I actually wore this full outfit (the one with the white shoes) for a day out and about at the festival and I received so many compliments from strangers telling me they liked the look. Y’all know me, I normally rock a good ‘ol pair of ankle booties, but when I saw these gorgeous sneakers I knew I had to have them! The quality is beautiful and I love the shape of the shoe – they’re more slimming and don’t look/feel bulky…I currently have my eye on a pair in black – I loved these so much!

Greats launched their new spring collection TODAY, yaaaay! They’re best known for their Wooster (the slip-ons) and Royale (lace-ups) options, and I’m loving the spring updates on these classic styles. From new colors (the blush) to textures (how cool is the perforated leather?), they’ve got something to suit every style. I am such a fan of minimalist fashion, and this brand really just exudes that cool and effortless sense of style.

Ps. If you’re curious how to style the pink sneakers, just swap the striped tee for a white v-neck and voila, you’re good to go!

    How do the slip-ons fit compared to the perforated Vans? I have really narrow feet and find that the Vans are either too short length-wise (when sizing down) or are too wide/loose and my foot slips around (in my usual size). Are these any narrower, by any chance?

    • livvy says:

      Hey Ashton! I have narrow feet, too, and these fit true to size! In Vans, I wear a half size down (6.5) but in the Greats I wear a 7 and they’re perfect. Definitely recommend, they’re truly beautiful shoes – very nice quality! Hope that helps, XOXO!!

  • Jen says:

    Love this look; so simple and cute! I’m a big fan of the blushed slip ons and the striped tee! Love your blog!

  • Jen says:

    What is the best way to wear these sneakers? Do you wear them without socks?

    • livvy says:

      Hey Jen! I wore them with “no show” socks…you can pretty much buy them anywhere these days! Personally, I like the ones that Van’s makes…they’re really comfortable. 🙂 Hope that helps!
