Stepping Into Spring With Creative Recreation Shoes

Spring has arrived and with it comes the beautiful sunshine, warmer temperatures and my conversion to lots of white tennis shoes. To most women, spring equals heels and wedges, but for me it’s also all about the tennis shoes. What can I say? I’m just a jeans and T-shirt girl at heart! Ever since owning these white high tops from Creative Recreation, I’ve been dying for the weather to brighten up so that I can wear them out (and not get them too dirty). White tennis shoes have somehow managed to sweet talk their way into being a wardrobe “Must Have” for women everywhere over the past few years. I was happy to let them do it!











I’m always looking for fun, new pairs to add to my ever growing collection, so when I came across these white high tops from Creative Recreation, I was like “YES”!! The zipper detail was what first caught my eye. I love a great eye catching detail, especially when it helps make shoes more functional. Getting high tops off and on can be a bit time consuming especially when they have laces to tie which make these easier to wear. I know they’re going to be a great accessory to have for all my outfits this spring.

With the weather warming up here in Sacramento, I can start to pack away the heavy layers and trade them out for lighter, more spring appropriate layers like cute denim jackets. Denim jackets are the perfect layer for spring since they keep you warm on those chilly morning and evenings while you’re waiting for the sun to warm you up. I just love them!

I rarely wear prints, but when I do, they’re fun and funky like this top; I love adding a bit of that 90’s feel to my looks lately. Prints are a great way to step away from the dark, winter colors and start incorporating some spring colors into your outfits without looking like an Easter egg. The only black I refuse to ever give up are my black jeans, they’re my go-to.  I especially like the way white tennis shoes and black jeans look when they’re worn together, it’s such a classic look to me. I plan on wearing them until the heat is too much to handle!
