Kickin’ it in FILA & Express!

 

So before we went to Tokyo, I had the PERFECT idea of an outfit in my head.

I had just ordered these shoes & wanted to pair them with a girly outfit. I mean I had it pictured perfectly… these dope white shoes with a flirty blue dress during hanami {aka cherry blossom viewing}. I mean, the colours, the shades of pink, TOKYO?! Just picture perfect.

WELL- I ordered the shoes a week before Tokyo and shoprunnered the dress on Thursday night praying they’d get here before our 11:00a flight.

They both came immediately after our flight. In fact, as we were leaving in our Uber, I saw a fedex car come by my street and almost gave Erik a heart attack since I was about to jump out to get them – they HAD to be my shoes! – but we were already late for our flight {shocker} so he told me hell no ๐Ÿ™

Side note: but I drive Erik insane with flights because I always make it at the last second and he is VERY prudent and leaves with plenty of time to spare. I might or might not have missed flights because of this & basically the only arguement Erik & I get in.

ANYWAYS-

I went to Tokyo without this dress & without these shoes, which is really quite unfortunate because I dig this look so much. Not to mention, the cherry blossoms were in FULL bloom. {true story, but I asked Erik when the next flight to Tokyo was that night but again was told no}

I have a TON of posts queued about this, but fashion in Japan is just insane- in the good way. It’s seriously second to none and where I get all my inspo from. My absolute favourite trend in Tokyo is the high contrast between feminine & edgy.

The second I saw these shoes, I knew I had to pair it with something feminine & flirty.

I shop Express quite often – a big reason because they have shoprunner, seriously, it’s a lifesaver, basically the Amazon Prime of fashion – & was on the hunt for a perfect dress for these shoes.

I came across this dress & to make it even better, it is on clearance. SCORE! Express clearance always takes an extra percentage off so you can find some major deals there.

I loved the ruffled strong 80’s shoulder, the cinching around the waist & bust and the frilly hem. When I got back from Tokyo, I couldn’t wait to open this and was very impressed by the fabric. Despite how inexpensive it is, the dress is super high quality with a nice thick fabric. The length is perfect too, not too short for a mini! It also comes in black, green, & pink but I’m a blue gal ๐Ÿ˜‰

With the shoes? Even better!

Let’s talk the Fila Disruptors for a bit.

For starters, I love the name. What really sold me on these are the soles. I talked about them here but they remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog! The silhouette on these babies are sharp, edgy, & uber trendy.

In fact, you ย hear this trend being called Ugly Shoes but I must disgress. I think they are beyond dope, far from ugly, and I’m all about replacing my heels with these. In fact, I also have these which deserve a post of their own since they are the EXACT shoes I bought when I worked at Hooters 12 years ago! Again, like I said, post for another day bc SO MUCH to talk ab there ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not only are they sick on, they are hella comfortable. The ways to wear them are endless – you can wear them with vintage tapered jeans & a long oversized blazer {with this, I’d wear it with a lacy corset underneath or long line bra}, a mini dress like I did, or over some tights and socks.

Since the shoes are so edgy, I paired them with a fun find from Harajuku – these bow socks! I love the blue colour & how flirty the cutie bows look with the shoes.

In fact, this style in Tokyo was HUGE & I am all for it. I’ll def be DIY’ing some socks like this so lmk if you want a post?

It’s a fun little detail that goes a long way – they are really REALLY cute with some platform combat boots too.

Anyways, I think this is such a cute look for Spring. In fact, now that the weather is getting warmer, it means more wine country trips – we went impromptu last Friday and it was just a blast {not to mention we came home w six cases of wine sooooo there’s that}. A flirty dress with these shoes are the perfect get up as I sip some crisp whites, non?

Welllll that’s all I got!

Tonight, I got invited to the grand opening of the brand new Reformation! Pretty stoked about that but a little scared for my credit card since the new location is much closer to my apartment than the one in the Mission. Be sure to check it out on my instastories – the store is SO next level, especially the changing rooms!

See ya tomorrow,

  • Did anyone else have a full week of Mondays or was it just me?! Either way, Iโ€™m cheersing HARD to the weekend ๐Ÿ”†  #tgiff
  • After trying all of the natural @skylar fragrances, I settled with CAPRI - sparkling, sweet citrus โœจ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŒŸ it was a scent that made me instantly happy and transported me to the Mediterranean, beachside, in a belted swimsuit, cat eye sunnies, & a huge hat with a limoncello spritz in hand. ๐Ÿฅ‚ Instant good vibes and I love how it fades to an irresistibly sweet finish on me. Iโ€™ve been layering it with Isle from the sampler pack below and some coconut-vanilla body lotions! I love that they are non-toxic, cruelty fre, & hypoallergenic. Use the code SCENTS10 for 10% off {& be sure to get the sampler pack so you can try them all - the cost of the $20 pack will be applied to the full size}! ๐Ÿ‹ ๐ŸŒŸ #ad #skylarbody #ambskyfull #ambcollab #madeinla
  • my lil urban jungle cat ๐Ÿ’– Last night, @erikschuchard brought home a TON of plants: we now have succulents galore, some small trees, cacti, ferns, & my fave: palms & lots of them ๐ŸŒด now I have to find some chic planters and have no idea where to begin. Any ideas?! #blackcatsofinstagram #ihavethisthingwithplants #cornerofmyhome
  • Tennis, anyone? ๐ŸŽพ skipped the gym today and hit the tennis courts with @erikschuchard instead! โœจ #lovelove #mysf #slsfit
  • Good scents come naturally and Iโ€™m loving @skylar lately. ๐Ÿƒ Itโ€™s a non-toxic, hand crafted perfume from LA. I love that they are all natural and cruelty free not to mention hypoallergenic & both paraben / phthalate free.
๐ŸŒŸ
Letโ€™s talk the scents - can you guess which full sized one I chose?:
CAPRI: sparkly citrus with notes of musk, dewy rose, & neroli
ARROW: seductive night jasmine with warm vanilla, & patchouli
CORAL: flirty & fruity with grapefruit with apple blossom
ISLE: clean and refreshing with bergamot, sandalwood, & cardamom
MEADOW: elegant and feminine with tuberose & orange blossom.
๐ŸŒŸ
they are so pretty on their own but they layer very well together. I personally am loving mixing Arrow with Meadow and Capri with Isle.
๐ŸŒŸ
Whatโ€™s really rad is that you can try all of their 5 scents in the comfort of your home before you commit to a full size! This set is $20 but when you decide which one you want, that $20 goes into the full sized perfume. ~*but wait thereโ€™s more*~ you can use the promo code SCENTS10 for a 10% discount!
๐ŸŒŸ
OK SO- which are you?: spicy, fruity, clean, floral, or sparkly?! โœจ
