One of my favorite trends right now is the sneaker plus dress combo. In this look I paired a soft pink sheath dress with some easy slip-on sneakers. I initially purchased this dress last year to wear to a boat cruise – if this was me five years ago, that’s pretty much the only wear this dress would have received. These days I’m adopting the mantra that if I cannot wear an item both day and night, I won’t make the purchase. I’m trying to stay away from labeling my pieces as ‘occasion specific’ clothing and giving them as much wear as possible. I mean, of course some pieces will be purchased for specific occasions, but the point is not to limit that piece to one wear, one occasion.
