free-spirited

Jumping around on the edge of Chinatown, loving that bare legs are still possible, and loving the tea dress-meets-urban pavement pounder thing I've got going on here. I brought a pair of heeled boots that I wear in Barcelona a lot with me here, forgetting that what's appropriate footwear when you cycle everywhere is less appropriate when you walk everywhere. So now my sneakers are kind of glued to my feet...

sneakers and a dress, perfect combination. You look like a lady but can run faster than any other gal on the street. Very wise and chic. :)

@Teaka: My thoughts exactly. :) My sister think I look like a hipster though and my mom said I looked like a gangster. Ha!

Ooh I love that dress! It looks cute with the sneakers :D
I need to find good walking shoes, I'm slowly cycling through my flats as I walk through NYC and finding which ones work and which don't...most don't XD

yay sounds looks like you're getting quite a nice long time back home! I actually love the sneakers w/ this dress look, even before i heard how practical it was. I always get asked about biking in heels/wedges and always respond, it's a heck of a lot easier than walking all around in them!

I love converse with pretty dresses, much easier to walk around in when it's hot anyway! x

sounds like your having a blast in your hometown. i love the previous party pics. i associate sneakers and dresses with traveling because you want to look girl but still comfy. i personally love the combo.

I love the sneaks and a dress look! proof! http://thebraidedbandit.blogspot.com/2012/09/paisley-in-garden.html
Haha @ your mom and sisters opinions! Sometimes I totally cheat and will wear flats and sneakers to work and throw on something with a heel if I know I am taking pictures (shhh), I just hate the loud clanking sound of anything with heels in my quiet office!

such a lovely red dress. i am digging the converse sneakers, too. i've been seeing lots of girls in white high tops looking very cute, too. i also love your previous post. looks like good fun and a bit of 'debauchery'.....perfectly harmless.
