This is one trend I've avoided wholeheartedly. Today, I can say that I finally caved. Last weekend started my initial experiment with "Dad Sneakers".

I'm in the process of revamping my entire Pinterest account. From deleting and customizing new boards to posting new content, I'm working on updating my Pinterest feed this month. I recently completed Danielle Gervino's Pinterest Challenge and she inspired me to alter the overall health of my current my boards and make an actionable strategy to drive traffic from Pinterest back over to my blog! I am grateful for her advice and I feel like the addition of Tailwind will see my page views soar over the next few months. 

As for spring fashion shoe trends: dad sneakers are on my brain. Lately, dad sneakers have appeared on my feed on multiple bloggers who style them with cute dresses. I never imagined myself to fall for this trend, yet here I am! I am glad to see this trend continue because it also means I can get away with wearing sneakers AND look trendy at the same time. What a win, win!

Whether you opt for crisp white pair of chunky Dad sneakers or change things up a little and find a neutral pair with pink tones like mine, be sure to use my look for a little inspiration! 

Well, since I own a bunch of cute feminine dresses, I finally decided to wear my Target sneakers out in public on Sunday.  A little more into my sneakers: they are pink, gray, and white with ties. I knew if I wanted to try out this trend I would have to spend no more than $60 on a pair of sneakers. Thankfully, I stopped into Target just to browse (hehe, never!) and found these in my size. I went with a 10 which fit my feet perfectly, even without socks. These are $25 and also come in black if you feel less adventurous. 

My friend Laura and I ventured out to Dunedin, Florida for an afternoon of walking and taking outfit photos. We grabbed a bite to eat at a restaurant in town where I ate some tasty chicken curry. I think I've been on a curry kick ever since I returned from Germany! I truly miss the cuisine over there.
