Never thought I’d be a sneaker freaker kinda girl one day, but the various sneaker hypes of the recent years really got to me. And well, let’s be honest, I never was a heel kinda girl either, so I was pretty much running out of options, HAHA. Anyway, as you can probably tell, I completely embraced the sporty and comfy look: beanie, oversized shirt and cardigan, washed jeans (like, literally washed, they were deep black once) and one of the latest sporty additions to my shoe wardrobe.
Let’s seriously talk shoes here by the way. I restricted myself from buying new ones since the start of OCTOBER (whuuuutt, yes for real!), because I kinda felt like I already had everything I could possible need (make sure to capture this moment, ’cause I don’t say this that often). But suddenly the sneaker-vibe hit me and I caught myself looking in sale racks for reasonable priced Nikes (joke’s on me, Nike’s never on sale!) and Pinteresting for sporty inspiration.
And that’s when I ran into these beauties by Monshoe. I didn’t know about this brand yet, so I was quite hesitant at first, but I found them on Sooco, which is a relatively small shoe webshop selling all kinds of quality brands (quite reasonably priced as well by the way, you should definitely check out their sale, because they do include cool Nikes). Anyhow, browsing through the sneakers, I fell in love with these black-and-powder-pink ones that match (and bring colour to) my black and grey dominated wardrobe!
Quality-wise, they’re perfect! The suède is gorgeous and they feel very firm and well made. They come with gold laces as well (not real gold of course, I mean something like the colour of the v-shape on the sides), but – as usual – I prefer black. The only drawback I can think of, is that they’re quite hard to combine. The rose pink colour make them mismatch with other colours quickly. Luckily, I’m a non-colour-lover! And besides, I’m always in for a challenge, so in Spring, I’m gonna try to include powder pink in my colour scheme.
We shot these pics in front of De Munt by the way, such a beautiful building! (And full of ancient Roman coins, which is always a good thing.) In between rain showers, we cycled through Utrecht to find a cool spot and we should definitely do that more often. Afterwards, I handed in two papers, shopped a new coat (show you soon!) and we treated ourselves to some Starbucks coffee and carrot cake. I’ll be busy finishing my last deadline today and then I’m finally homework-free for two days =D. Happy friday!
