I am the first to admit that I am not “trendy”.
To be honest, I think the fact that I said the word trendy is a testament to just how “trendy” I am…
I like to be comfortable and look cute, I don’t necessarily have a style that I adhere too. But when I started seeing Adidas superstars trend being styled all over the fashion world, I absolutely fell in love!
It is just the right amount of cute, casual and COMFORTABLE – truly key in the style world of Jess! Let me tell you, The only time I sacrifice comfort for style is A. They have to be AMAZING shoes or B. To hell with being cold I wanted to wear that skirt/dress/playsuit!
I know these shoes aren’t the cheapest, at $130 a pop here in Australia (crazy I know!) But they are a true staple in your wardrobe and from a reliable and durable company. So off I went on a mad search to find them cheaper! Asos had them for $110 – which was a great deal that I almost took, because they had every size in stock, and that was an issue for me having very average sized feet!
And then a magical email fell into my inbox…Platypus (an Australia shoe store) was having 20% off storewide until Monday If you showed them your email instore or use the code WEHEARTYOU online!
I basically DRAGGED my husband into the store and tried them on before bringing them home with me! I went half a size down for a comfortable fit and settled with a AUS8.
I am OBSESSED with these shoes and even though they are a little pricey for someone on a budget, I think they will be perfect with every outfit- I plan on wearing them with everything from skinny jeans to boyfriends jeans and even dresses in the Summer months!!
What are your thoughts on comfort before fashion?
