a good sport

fashion sneakers - 4 (2)

In the spirit of taking more style risks in 2014 like said here, I’ve been embracing my sportier side.  I found these converse star player leather sneakers while researching for a client, and like any typical shopping-obsessed stylist, bought one pair for the photoshoot and one pair for myself.  Lately instead of grabbing booties, I’ve been inserting these high tops into my look and welcoming the fresh change.  And you can’t beat the comfort if you’re an urbanite whose feet are a means of transportation.  While sneakers have been a streetstyle fashion choice for decades, mine have mostly been reserved for exercise.  Until now.  This year I’m upping my shoe game and plan on being a really good sport about it!  How will you step outside of your style comfort zone in 2014?  Would love to hear your stories!  xx jenny

mz wallace metro tote

MZ WALLACE

I can’t take an ounce of credit for finding this MZ Wallace Metro Tote.  My friend came over for brunch during the holidays and like a hawk to its prey, I spotted her epic bag.  I ordered my own a week later and have been toting it (pun intended) around NYC ever since.  It’s practically as light as air which works in my favor because I tend to carry everything other than the kitchen sink.  It’s also quilted which is a super hip and on trend texture this season.  And if that’s not enough, it’s water resistant which came in handy these past few weeks of snow and polar-vortexing.  The sensible price point is just the cherry on top.  Head over to MZ Wallace to view the larger version of this style and a plethora of other print and color options.  And check out their collage page which I am honored to be a part of!  Happy Friday ya’ll! xx jenny
