The other day I mentioned I would be showing you an outfit that is anything but simple. Well, here it is… an outfit that makes a statement. A very pink statement lol. I’m feeling pretty in pink Skechers!
I decided I needed a pair of summer trainers and Skechers are always my first go-to shop for trainers (I have five pairs now lol). As soon as I entered the store, I spotted these pink beauties, immediately tried them on and knew I had to have them. I hadn’t actually intended to buy a pink pair. I just wanted something light on the feet, and light in colour. Aren’t they super pretty?
I didn’t have anywhere to go, but I figured I would play dress up and go all out. Hence the tulle, the sequins and sparkle! I absolutely LOVE this outfit. It’s so super girlie, but super comfy too, with the pink Skechers. However, there is a funny story about the tulle skirt—which isn’t actually very comfortable. Let me explain…
I’d been wanting a pink tulle skirt for so long, but had never come across one that was right, so I ended up searching for one online. Trying not to spend much money, I stumbled over this one on Amazon. I was a little confused over the sizing so I ordered an XL because the measurements seemed closer to mine. When it arrived, I wondered if I’d ordered a child’s XL because it was tiny! But on the sales page, there was no mention of kids. Oh well… at least I only paid about ten euros for it! So I put it away thinking I would just pass it on to my niece when she’s a bit bigger. And then I bought these pink Skechers…
For this post, I knew I wanted to wear something really girlie and fun and the tiny skirt was perfect. Shame about the size though lol. But I figured I would try it again, and it actually wasn’t as bad as I thought. It was just about wearable (provided I don’t reveal the major muffin top the elastic waist is causing lol)! So sod it, I put it on and completed the outfit with my gorgeous sequinned top from H&M earlier this year and my pink Kipling bumbag et voila, my pretty in pink Skechers outfit was born!
What do you think? Is it your kinda outfit? How would you wear a pair of Pink Skechers? Would you wear them with something so….erm….princessy lol?! Let me know in the comments! But now though, I hope you’ll join the Neverending Style Link-up so we can all check out your latest blog and Instagram posts 🙂
One of my favourite posts this week was written by Gail of Is This Mutton, who shared a very thought-provoking piece entitled, ‘Is Grandmother an Insult’. The post highlights a woman who took exception to colleagues mentioning her grandmother status—not that she didn’t love being a grandmother—she was protesting about the implied ageism in the term. It’s a great read and one certainly worth thinking about! I hope you’ll check it out if you haven’t already.
