Uniform Refresh

I’m upping my game when it comes to tops and sneakers—the Atlantique Ascoli blouses are to blame, they took my daily uniform up a notch, which was long overdue. And it’s time to replace my Stans, sadly they are a bit ubiquitous at this point.

Marni top and here, AG Jeans, Pumas and here.

  • I was wearing my Stan Smiths over the weekend and my granddaughter told me not to wear them again please – she said it looked like my feet were both in casts!!! Just ordered the Pumas and considering the Marni top…..strongly.

  • Great outfit update. Love Kathy’s granddaughter’s analogy!

  • I added a pair of dusty pink pumas to my sneaker rotation this season and love them. They might be the most comfortable sneaker I have and they’re pretty flattering on the foot. Surprisingly the faded pink acts as a neutral and works with more than I expected. The Stan Smiths never looked good on me mainly for the reason Kathy mentioned.

  • LOL @Kathy – the new Stan Smiths do seem wider and more boat-like than the originals

    Preston, you succumbed to the Atlantique Ascolis? Bet they look fab!

  • For context – my granddaughter is 3 1/2, and very opinionated about clothing. I did pull the trigger on the Marni top in two sizes – hate when stuff I’m considering starts selling out.

  • I love the sneakers. Do they seem to run true to size? I just ordered a pair, then it occurred to me to ask!

  • April- just ordered the sneakers (and a number of others) yesterday. Will let you know on sizing.

  • Always love your uniform posts!

    ClaireMay 30th, 2017  5:55 PM

     
  • Any tips on how to keep the white suede clean?

    GingerMay 30th, 2017  9:50 PM

     
  • I concur with Claire — your uniform posts are the best.
    Ginger, try Jason Markk sneaker kits (you can find them at Nordstrom) — they’re the best for white sneakers.

  • I never even looked at Marni before this season and I have bought *five* of their tops in the past month. I love them! Have been wearing them all the time with cropped black pants. The tops run big, btw.

  • I have just recently been converted to Golden Goose De Luxe Brand of sneakers. I had ignored them as being too trendy. However I recently tried on a pair and was immediately converted

    They are a great alternative to Stans and are so comfortable. I am already planning buying a second pair .

  • I still love my Stan Smith Bolds! I bought a pair of Golden Goose’s and even though they are flatter, they are incredibly comfortable. I would love to hear back on the Puma’s because I am looking for some black trainers.

  • Just purchased these and a pair of navy blue tretorns. Couldn’t resist the throwback to my teen years.
