I wore this to: make Monday morning a little easier.
On the first day of the 4th grade- incidentally my first day of traditional public schooling as well (Montessori kid)- I remember wearing this great pair of plaid platform sneakers that my mom bought me from Payless. I have no idea what I wore for pants or a shirt, but my jacket was this fringed, fleece, southwestern number that was equally as awesome, to me at least. I don't know why I remember those pieces so specifically, maybe because of all the changes happening in my life at that point, but I remember loving those sneakers so much. So yes, you could say I'm stoked to see the return of platform tennis shoes. I know a lot of people have been rolling their eyes over the return of everything 90's, but I love it and I'm embracing it. The eyeball ring reminds me of my middle school notebook, which I covered in left-over doll eyes from a home ec. project and gobs of glitter paint, and felt pretty damn proud of myself for.
This specific combination has been my go-to on lazy days where I just want to feel like I'm in my pajamas. Maxi dresses are good for that sort of thing.
Also, who doesn't love shoes that you can stand on your toes in? That's what I thought.
