are you a sneakerhead?

Autumn is here, winter is coming… And that means a wardrobe update! This year it’s all about the sneaker for us. We still love our boots, but to be practical, as mamas who still want to look stylish, it’s sneakers all the way.

Last year Liza switched between a very old pair of pink Adidas trainers and an apple green pair of Reeboks, but this winter it’s time for an update. Emily’s just bought a pair of Supergas (see below) and she can’t believe it took her so long. They have barely left her feet since. She wears them with everything from jeans to office-style LBDs – basically her wardrobe has been revolutionised, in fact her entire ‘look’ on a day-to-day basis. Liza is still on the hunt!

What’s your favourite pair and how do you wear them?

it’s pants season

For some reason, I really struggle to wear dresses in winter. I feel too restricted by the layering of tights, dress, jersey, coat etc. So as soon as the weather turns cold and rainy, and I absolutely cannot leave the house baring skin, I turn to pants. All kinds of pants: high-waisted wide leg pants, tapered and cropped pants, skinny denims, boyfriend denims… Here’s some inspiration below.

We also have a whole bunch of gorgeous pants for sale in the I Heart Vintage store, too. Click here to take a look!

And almost always, my pants are paired with flats. Here are a few I have my eye on…

slip-on sneakers

I think I’m going to be investing in a few pairs of slip-on sneakers for winter… It’s a good shoe for a busy mama. In fact, I’m just really stoked that sneakers in general are acceptable to wear.

andy warhol meets converse

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of stepping out to view the Converse All Star Andy Warhol collection – inspired by the pop art legend himself. Tuesday evenings for me usually involve curling up on the sofa and watching reruns of Project Runway, but this particular night I took my darling friend Adelaide off to Sportscene at Canal Walk for some visual inspiration.

We wandered through the store along a corridor of enormous blown-up and vibrantly coloured prints of the artist to where, nestled at the back, was a display of the new Chucks themselves. Four unique pairs of kicks in Warhol’s classic Campbell’s Soup print occupied everyone’s attention as the onlookers all held thumbs to be a winner of the treasure hunt so they could sneak home with a prized pair.

I’m the proud owner of two very well worn pairs of All Stars which have evolved into my standard uniform and everyday wear. With only 120 pairs in South Africa, I’m hoping I can get my hands on a pair of these limited edition beauties!

The collection is now available exclusively through selected Sportscene stores with prices ranging from R979.95 to R1049.95.
