Love Those Keds

Love Those Keds

Do I date myself when I say that I used to have a pair of red canvas Keds with the rubber toe? I guess I do. I remember choosing among three colors: red, blue, and white. When I was older, I had the white canvas Keds without the rubber toes. They were slimmer and less rounded.

I've always loved sneakers and always had at least one pair in my closet. Today, sneakers or athletic shoes come in every color and design imaginable. Needless to say, I was delighted to find a pair of white canvas Keds with an Orthalite insert, perfect for my aching back. I took one look at the shoes and remembered running up the road in my red Keds.

I couldn't wait to try them out. I had to do some grocery shopping, the other day, so I pulled out a pair of capris and my new shoes.

Temps were in the low 70s, a perfect day for sneakers instead of sandals. I decided to create a black and white outfit, building from my Aztec designed capris. The Keds were a perfect choice.

I also wanted to try wearing my Keds with a dress. I pulled out a sleeveless shift and added my white jean jacket. Again, the Keds worked!

Adding some silver jewelry completed the look.

My Keds are perfect for dresses, jeans, or shorts. What versatility!

And shorts it is!

As you can see, sneakers are great with everything you wear. Well, I don't think I'd wear them with a cocktail dress, but how about a red floral dress?? Be creative.
