SHOES & SNEAKERS
Cortez, classic sneaker on trend again, as only Nike can do it! and my Cortez is the perfect example, it is not from seventies, and it is not from this or last season. It is about 10 years ago. Which demonstrate that Cortez has been always “the sneaker”.
I consider this style, one of the best sneakers to wear with skirts or dresses, its slim and stylish design makes Cortez a very feminine and beautiful sneaker for ladies.
Here is the outfit, some basic garments, and the historic Cortez. It is historic not only because Nike create a style full of personality, which is still alive, but also because the film, Forrest Gump. We are still remembering phrases like: “mum said you can know about people for the shoes they wear”, and it is very true, shoes say about us more than we think…
I went last weekend to Valencia. It was a very pleasant visit for me. Walking around their streets bring some beautiful remembers to my mind about years ago, and also this beautiful sanadals which I saw in a window while I was going around.
The brand is Massimo Dutti and I can’t resist to buy them.
I found them really easy to wear in Summer with totally black or white outfit, or even with jeans.
I just share just in case you like, as you can buy in a store or directly in the web, but do it quickly as it is almost stock out.
I have found some accessories in my wardrobe to combine them, as this old candy bag which I love. What do you think about that.
Today, I want to share with you a Spanish Footwear Brand with high quality shoes, it is called Miss García, it born in Asturias and lead and designed by Elena García, who has a special grace to create and bring this unique shoes to life.

Black & White
Black and white, timeless combination. You can wear it at any time of the year.Actually, white pants are more typical for Spring or Summer season, so during Winter I usually wear this type of outfit in the other way around, black pants and white shirt…
However, let me give you some tips about this outfit. It is a very simple idea which well combined can be original.
Black blouse in silk fabric, this is one of those basics that we always have in our wardrobe. In fact, this one has few years. I bought it when I was living in Paris in a special French brand, Maje. Fortunately, you can find now easily in most of the countries, and if not you can buy on line.
What turns this shirt into a different basic is its collar with some ruffles. I freak out! In addition, now is on fashion. Even though, I do say that on trend or not, I would wear anyway. I consider ruffles very feminine and also perhaps very Spanish and I think they never pass, of course as long as they are not too excessive.
I consider this blouse supper useful, as it is very multifunctional. You can wear outside or inside your skirts and pants. Sometimes, I have wear outside with jeans and sneakers, as today, or with high boots and leggings in winter. And I have also dress inside my trousers and moccasins, or with a high waist skirt and heels, which is also very girlish.
With or without ruffles, I encourage you to have in your wardrobe some basic garments with some special details. This type of clothes is always ready to help you to complete an outfit, more sport or dressier but with a feminine and original touch, which will do your outfit basic but special.
Regarding the white jeans, it is a push up from Calzedonia. I will not invest too much in this type of pants, as I have done several times, and finally I get always the same conclusion, they become to lose the authentic color… as white is losing their whiteness with the time. This Calzedonia jean is fantastic, the fit is perfect and the price great.
Related to the sneakers, and let me say these are “the sneakers”. Those who know me a little bit, can confirm these are my favorite sneakers. Nike Flyknit Racer, also called Oreo, like cookies, for the mixture between black and white.
There are several reasons why I am in love with this model. They are super comfortable because the fact of being built with a single knit piece, is giving an extra adaptability. Ultra-light as they are created to run short distances with an amazing technology and lightness. Besides all, it is a very feminine style by its soft lines and stylized design. Last week I used them in a black dress and the whole was a success.
I hope it inspires you!

Black garments or basics
Dress in black again, using a variety of textiles and fabrics in the garments, and mixing diverse styles to get different flair. This time, I changed sneakers by heels creating a little bit dressy combination, and keeping the fun and harmony essence of this outfit.
The bluse is about cupro fabric, an eco-friendly fiber. For those interested in it, here the post where I explained the characteristics of this fabric, and where you can see another combination choice for this ecological shirt.
The jeans are from Calzedonia, one of the greatest features of these pants is their “push up” effect, thanks to some lateral sewing in the back area, which produces a shaping effect while enhancing the figure. These jeans not only have a phenomenal fitting, but also they are super comfortable. And let me say that their price is great.
Finally the shoes, I choose in green as it is one of my favorite colors. Shoes heel is not too high, and this is helping to keep dressy sport style. They are also quite retro, so I decide to mix with the flowing and wide blouse getting beautiful and stylish look.
The shoes brand is Chie Mihara, one of my favorites shoe designers for many reasons, one of them is the great raw materials quality and the manufacturing process attention. I leave you her webside link, in case you want to know more about her products.
Once again, I hope this can inspire you.

Black, neutral and versatile color
Black outfits are always a fantastic choice. Black is a sober and elegant color which shape your body, in addition you can get the style you want, from more casual or minimalist to dressy, it just only depends on how you decide to mix your black garments. And of course, the final touch which will come from shoes and accessories.
I love mixing garments with different fabrics and diverse styles which allow me to create atypical outfits. So here I share with you a casual black outfit with a slight blue touch in the sneakers.
Knit sweater with batwing sleeves and ruffles, short and cinched at the waist. The sleeves style gives a look quite retro, and the flounces add the feminine elegance. Also being short and adjusted to the waist makes it sexy and cool.
Leather pants, quite tight with some elastane which makes it very comfortable, since it is be very adaptable to the body. Mid waist pants look great with this type of sweater, as it allows the garment to flow perfectly.
Finally the sneakers, Nike Flyknit Racer, it is one of my favorite’s styles. I am in love with the material, the design and the fit, really comfortable, since it is like wearing a sock. For this time, I choose a black and blue sneaker, which mix very nice with the leather pant. These two garments together, lightly reverse the dressy style coming up from the sweater.
If you want to be more formal, you just have to change the sneakers for some black booties or high heels. Booties must be always in black if you want to keep longer legs visual effect. In case of heels you can choose your prefer color, with black it will be more formal, with any other color you will be dynamic and fun style.

Nike Free Flyknit
Flyknit, I fell in love with this tech from the first moment Nike launched it. I am following all updates new designs and functionalities they are applying to this particular fabric. As I told you in some post before, this technology allows the most perfect adaptation to your feet.
In addition to this, totally flexible Free outsole, which allows freedom, exercising muscles in a natural movement. With this technology Nike is mixing the healthy motion of a bare foot with the protection of traditional footwear, getting a great foot muscles reinforcement.
Being a super technical and comfortable product, it is also a great sneaker for a casual outfit.
So, here we are the Nike Free Flyknit I just bought. I choose black and white as basic blend which allows multiple combinations, I am going to use like a casual wear. You can find different choices at Nike web.
Super recommendable, really comfortable! I wear them with skirts to go to work… 😉

Casual look with running sneakers!
Nike Flyknit Racer is one of my favorite’s sneakers for a long time. Specially in this black and white color combination. Flyknit racer is a running sneaker… but it is not only to run…
Nike invests in Flyknit technology for many years now. Then remark these sneakers are made with only one knitted piece, as if we knit a sweater…being them a very special item. Very comfortable as a result of being all of one piece, and totally fresh due to materials used in its manufacture.
Few words are needed to describe them: EXCELLENT! If you love sneakers, these are yours.
