FLORENCE'S FACADES / Bright cashmere and polka dots against painting-like facades

sneaker with tights skirt outfit
Happy Thursday!  Who says sneakers can't be fashionable (while still screaming total tourist)?  If I thought sneakers with a dress was way out of my comfort zone, I went to the moon wearing it with a skirt AND tights.  I'm not going to lie, I thought it looked a bit strange but I took some fashion advice from my sister who preferred it over the black flats.  I did pack this sweater knowing I would wear it with the sneakers because of the complementary color pairing (and I sure do love this color pairing - an outfit from the early start of the blog and one that is more recent) between the bright green of the sweater and pink lining of the shoes but in my head I pictured it with jeans.  Fashion is all about risks though and I must say I like the sneakers with the quirky polka dot and the bright sweater!
