One of my favorite combos to wear is denim and leather. They both have a similar vibe but they somehow balance each other out. This kind of ensemble would work with pretty much any type of footwear, but my tomboyish instincts (and my very casual lifestyle) lead me to pick my trusty Vans.
I've discussed before how living in Brooklyn just makes you want to step up your laid-back game, which is precisely why dressed-up moments are pretty rare the way I'm set up. But my relaxed style is never sloppy, and that is why I can get away with wearing sk8er gurl sneakers on the daily.
In fact, I can't even remember the last time I put on a real pair of high heels. For real. I know, who am I?!
