This pandemic has really forced me out of the store and into my own closet… spending so much time at home has motivated me to really whittle down my wardrobe to the things I love and then find new ways to style them and actually wear them, pandemic or not! I first fell in love with Golden Goose sneakers after seeing my friend and fellow blogger, Camilla, wear them. The sneakers are the perfect mom shoe and she styles them so effortlessly that it inspired me to get a pair for myself.
I’m into neutrals, that’s no secret, and Golden Goose sneakers can be not so neutral. I took my time shopping and found the perfect neutral pair… a little “lived in” because that’s the design of Golden Goose but not too lived in, white with grey suede and black back. Simple and easy to go with my wardrobe. I stalked them until they finally went on sale and then I scooped them up. I broke them in and wore them twice then set them on the shelf in my closet and that is where they stayed. I just didn’t know how to style them and I didn’t take the time to really look at my wardrobe and figure out what I would wear with them.
So here I was, a pair of “staple” sneakers that I loved but never wore and no idea how to wear them. After a major closet haul, I set them out and challenged myself, with the push from Camilla, to wear my sneakers every day for a week… a few of the outfits I had doubts about but by the end of the day, I was feeling more confident in wearing the sneakers and now I find myself reaching for them more and more and thinking about how I can wear them while shopping for new clothes.
Now that I’ve gained some confidence in styling and wearing these sneakers, I think you’ll be seeing them around a little more! Yay for shopping your own closet and finding inspiration for new outfits!
