MAJOR TREND ALERT : The Chunky Sneaker.
So picture this... here I am scrolling through Instagram before bed; keeping up with my favorite bloggers, saving my favorite outfits, ya know... the usual, when I notice a blogger in a sweet & simple dress while wearing a pair of bold chunky sneakers. UM, YES.
Of course, I am LOVING this pairing because it's very 90s chic and I definitely love a good vintage look.
Naturally, I went on the hunt for my perfect bold sneaker AKA bright white, comfortable and extra chunky, but with a modern feel.
I was starting to think the perfect sneaker didn't exist until I found the FILA Disruptor 2 ( insert heart-eye emoji x 1000 )!
These babies checked off every box I had and then some. The trendiest, most comfy platform tennis shoes I could ask for, plus they match literally everything in my closet.
I love to style them with athleisure, a mini dress or with denim ( like I have them styled here with a jean skirt ). They look great / trendy dressed up or dressed down and I couldn't be more pleased. Get ready to see them allll over my Instagram ; )
Oh, & I can't get over how insanely well priced they are!
Shop the FILA Disruptor 2 to up your style game.
NOW moving on from closet inspo to some personal inspo :
For me, no matter what I'm dealing with in life or what I'm working toward, I have always found that a powerful quote can really reset my focus and help to establish a better mind set.
A good quote can direct my mind to a different way of thinking; maybe one I wouldn't have thought of myself.
I love sharing clothes and beauty, but I also hope my blog can be a source of inspiration. That's why I selected 10 quotes that I am loving at the moment and hopefully they inspire you as much as they've inspired me.
"Your mind will always believe everything you tell it."
I love this. What you continue to tell yourself, day in and day out, will become a reality.
"Never explain anything."
... because you don't have to. It's your life, not theirs. There are times when I feel like I need to explain myself or my actions, then I think of this quote and don't.
"Sometimes, you're all you have. Most times, you're all you need"
I can really relate to this when it comes to blogging. It can be so easy to compare myself to other bloggers who have lots of help; someone to take pictures with, to bounce ideas off of or work on content together. In my blogging world, it is very much me, myself & I.
I don't have outside help, which can be frustrating, but this quote really excites me because you know what, I am all I need to be successful and WOW is that a good feeling.
"The things that excite you are not random. They are connected to your purpose. Follow them."
I am spending time paying closer attention to what I am drawn to. Try it!
"Two things to remember in life. Take care of your thoughts when you're alone and your words when you're with people.
I am learning to be kind to myself when I am alone working. If you're on social media, comparing your success to others can seriously harm the development of positive thoughts or creative ideas.
"Don't raise your voice, improve your argument."
... simple as that. Yelling accomplishes nothing. Use your argument to make people speechless.
"When you are truly comfortable with who you are, not everyone will like you. But you won't care one bit."
YES. Just yes.
It's easy to let negativity get to you, trust me I know. But it is an amazing feeling to have someone say something negative and it not bother you at all. When you accept yourself completely, what someone else thinks will be irrelevant.
"Close your eyes and imagine the best version of yourself. That's who you really are. Let go of any part of you that doesn't believe it."
Try this when you wake up in the morning. It can completely change your tone for the day.
"What you desire is deliberately placed out of reach so that you can become the person it takes to obtain it."
This is probably my favorite quote at the moment. I am not where I want to be, but I am not the person I need to be... yet. This is an amazing reminder to just keep working and it will come.
"If you want to change your life, change your choices."
At the end of the day, success is made by small decisions we make every single day. Change the little things and you'll start to see big differences.
Hopefully at least one of these quotes resonated with you AND hopefully you'll be working on your goals while rocking the FILA Disruptor 2's ; )
