Every time I talk to my dad on the phone he asks three questions: “Are you eating well?” “Are you being safe?” and “Are you wearing comfortable shoes?” Oh Frank, he’s a good one. He always asks about my shoes because he knows that I clock in about 3-5 miles per day just walking around NYC for work, meetings, photo shoots and commuting. When I first moved to New York, I always rolled my eyes at commuter shoes – how dare you pair your gorgeous designer outfit with some neon running shoes. I learned the lesson the hard way during my first couple of months in NYC that wearing cute shoes (even at an inch or two) are actually a pain in the ass and my feet hurt all the time. I quickly expanded my sneaker collection and started wearing them on a weekly basis. When I’m on set for a photoshoot or running around to meetings, I want shoes that I can move around in and last a 10-12 hour day in.

Now, you won’t catch me in neon running sneakers or ugly commuter shoes – so, for today’s Wear It Wednesday, I’m sharing 5 different sneakers that you can wear from the office to date night and everything in-between. What’s your favorite look? xo

 1. The Office Sneaker

The best way to elevate a sneaker for the office is to stick with neutral colors like black, white or grey. My current favorite is this nude slip-on Steve Madden sneaker. I paired it with a trench dress (totally office-appropriate)  and statement purse to have business on top, party on the bottom!

 2. The Casual Sneaker

While I’d love for my weekends to be spent in bed, I’m normally running around shooting stuff for the blog, hanging out with friends or running errands. I opted for a more traditional “running” sneaker in an all-white mesh material and rose gold detailing. These sneakers are SO comfortable and definitely stand out in a crowd.

 3. The Date-Night Sneaker

Who says you have to wear heels for date night? I paired this killer yellow dress (very Beyoncé Lemonade vibes right?) with my classic Adidas. Maybe you’re going dancing for date night, or just grabbing cocktails – but either way, your feet will stay sane for the entire evening and you can focus on more important things, like your date 😉

4. The Girls-Night-Out Sneaker

Someone turn up the music and hand me a cocktail because these leather Superga hightop sneakers and lace dress are my new favorite combo! After trying on this look, I only want to wear sneakers on a Saturday night now.

 5. The Party Sneaker

It’s time for a party! I paired my trusty (and pretty worn in) Chucks with a playful dress, bomber jacket and tassel earrings. This look is ready to dance the night away!

    Having SUCH a hard time choosing between 2 and 5 but I think #2 has got to be my fav. I adore a good denim skirt with sneaks!!

    Audree,

    You know I love all of the looks as much as I love your style, but the office sneaker look has to be my favorite. I can completely agree that sneakers have taken over my life since they are so much more comfortable and functional than any type of heel or flat. I loved this list definitely inspiring for me to love my sneakers a little more!

    Xoxo

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:02 pm

      YESS girl!!! I can totally see you in this look! x

  11. June 28, 2017 / 8:39 pm

    The date night sneaker one is so cool!

  12. June 28, 2017 / 11:17 pm

    I must say I haven’t heard of the “office sneaker” and I am inspired! My office is pretty casual but I have a lot of business attire that I dont feel like wearing heels with every day. This sneaker is perfect!!

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:04 pm

      Yess Polina! I feel the same, I have so many business things but never need to be completely business professional

  13. June 28, 2017 / 11:28 pm

    I think the party sneaker has to be my favorite! Though I really love them all

  14. June 28, 2017 / 11:41 pm

    Those white and rose gold sneaks 😍

    I LOVE the “Girls-Night-Out” sneaker look!! I’m definitely a sucker for an “edgy but casual” look with my friends, so I know this one well haha!

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:07 pm

      AHH yes thanks Gabrielle!! That look is totally me- I love how ‘cool girl’ it is

    Love the rose gold sneakers in outfit 2!

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:07 pm

      Thanks Lexie! I own the same shoes in all black and when I saw the rose gold ones this summer, I was like OMG I NEEEED! They’re so cool

  17. June 29, 2017 / 4:28 am

    Hands down the ‘Date Night Sneaker’! I have an uber feminine style but during the summer especially when I find I want to be comfortable while pulling off a late night, I’ll pair what ever dress I’m wearing with my trusty beat up white converse low tops! I think this look is right up my alley, and something I would wear during the day, let alone night time! Also please know that this was a terribly hard decision to make due to the fact that the ‘Casual Sneaker’ had a stripe top included, and stripes are my WEAKNESS. But then you mentioned Beyonce, and I quickly found clarity.

    Much love, em!

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:10 pm

      OMG I couldn’t stop laughing when I read your comment. I LOVE IT! Yes girl, when I saw that dress, I became one with Queen B and felt like everything was right in the world haha

  18. June 29, 2017 / 9:40 am

    I’m all about that “casual sneaker” that pop of gold is awesome!

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:10 pm

      I feel like this look is very you as well!! Ahh I love it, thanks for entering!

    The girls night out sneaker is my absolute favorite 😍😍 I love the whole look you put together! I never would have thought to do that, but it looks amazing. I’m just now getting into sneakers, so thanks for some fabulous ideas 😊

    • June 29, 2017 / 1:11 pm

      YAY that makes me so happy Anna! Thanks for entering and I’m so excited to hear that you are getting into sneakers – definitely let me know if you end up wearing any of these looks! x

    The office sneaker is my favorite! But I wish they were some cool nude high tops (not so secret obsession of mine) I sturggle trying to find the best way to make my high tops for ever occasion.
    I would love to see more high top sneaker looks. For all occasions not just casual. Love it!
