Nice Kicks

Weekend uniform: When I get dressed on Saturday morning, I want my outfit to be stylish, comfortable, and versatile.

Good morning.

Pants: Made in USA of imported materials Top: Made in USA

How I built my outfit, from the ground up:
  • Sneakers: The Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 - I love these sneakers, they are comfortable, cute and sporty.  However, it is always so hard to find them in women’s sizes in cool colors so I usually have to scour Amazon. The Onitsuka website is the best place to find a solid selection.
  • Pants: I still beat the drum for the classic skinny jean - you can keep your wide leg, your mom jean, your high rise,  your capri. I think petite women can rock any of these cuts, but I personally like the lack of excess fabric around my legs and ankles.  
  • Top: This is from Everlane, it is a men’s small in navy. Everlane also sells a t-shirt in a women’s cut, but there is something perfectly slouchy about the men’s. These shirts are made in California, and are $15 each.
  • Jacket: Since the rest of this look is pretty neutral, I top it off with a statement jacket to punch up the look. This one is Rebecca Taylor but purchased at Nordstrom Rack, so presumably it is a few seasons old. It is a classic moto jacket with a lace print (detail below), which is a nice combo of tough and sweet (similar). Here are RT jackets currently on sale at Nordstrom Rack.

To transition to nighttime, just add heels and some sparkle.

The heels are Coclico, a brand I first stumbled upon in New York. Per their website, the shoes are made at a family run factory in Spain, which aims to use sustainable or locally sourced materials. I was pleased when I found these because if given the choice I will often try to do some research into the background of the clothing and shoes that I buy. I wore these for the first time to a wedding and cursed myself when I realized I forgot to put bandaids in my purse. I was thrilled when after dancing all night these did not rub my feet or cause any blisters. It looks like this style isn't available on the website anymore and only in limited sizes on Amazon, (these are also cute). Coclico has European sizing, and I found these run about a half size large.
