Sneakers to Take You Into Fall

This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

The Nordstrom Sale is winding down. So I gave it one more glance to see if I missed anything worth picking up. Boy, am I happy I did because these Nike Running Sneakers are the sleeper surprise of the entire event and possibly my favorite purchase.

I hate even to say it, but school starts in as little as three weeks for us. We will have a FRESHMAN in high school, a 6th grader, and our baby girl is starting at a little preschool a few days a week (she’ll be almost three – insert sobbing emoji). This particular season in life is wildly busy and fleetingly special, so I’m getting ready to embrace all the madness by getting organized. 

I’m attempting to pull it together by thinking strategically about what I want my day to look like so I can fit in all the things. Thinking ahead about easy meals for weeknights, how I’ll prioritize my health, when I can focus on work, and what I’m wearing all help me feel prepared. 

These sneakers (in full stock!) are so stinking cute and will work with other pieces already in my closet.

If you wear a lot of better basics in the fall, these sneakers will fit right in. I’ll wear them with black leggings and joggers, dark jeans and crew neck sweaters. You can throw a blacker over boyfriend jeans and a tee shirt, and add these for a sporty and casual outfit. Remember, a subtle leopard print in small details can really elevate your outfit when you use it as a neutral.

These sneakers are adorable! So tempted to order them! And I love that you are planning ahead for the fall - I am blocking out a day on my calendar to do the same :) I know one thing that's already on my schedule - I have a first day of school tradition with two girlfriends where we hang out on my front porch for several hours with bellinis and just catch our breath before diving into fall. It's the BEST!

That sounds so fun! Bri and I use to sneak out for lunch and drinks when we use to drop the girls off on their first day when they were little.
