I finally understand the trend of dresses with sneakers. When I first started seeing this trend two years ago, I was hesitant. But of course once you see or hear something again and again it becomes your all time favorite. This combination is counter-intuitive to the Carrie Bradshaws in our lives, but speaks to the girl trying to hustle.
The second I moved to New York this summer, I realized that my once comfortable Midwest sandals would not be cutting it. Walking around the city at about six miles a day is something you need to be prepared for. After five days of trying to wear every shoe in my closet, I decided to invest in the ultimate walking shoe. My biggest debate was between buying Adidas or Nike. My instinct went for the brand of the moment, so clearly I sought after the Adidas shoes.
This led to my big revelation that this trend started in New York for comfort purposes for a girl who hustles. After a while it became chic to the untrained eye, which really just worked out to a fashion-girls benefit.
