Hey, fellow sneaker fans. You’ve seen a few pics of my latest high-tops obsession, but I’m here to offer more ideas on styling. I wear these puppies almost every day, literally. I have them on right now. But I hear you that sometimes high tops are harder to style.

I think what I find best for my shorter frame/leg length is finding more of a mid-top sneaker instead of a true high-top. And that’s where it gets a little tricky. The ones I have and love are PERFECT, and they show some ankle. It looks like Converse has a mid-top now, too, yay! Has anyone tried it? Ooh, and Adidas with this one. SO good. (And from a sustainable company.)

My Favorite Look Right Now

coat (s) // sweatshirt (s) // jeans (27) // sneakers

The question here is what do I NOT wear high-tops with, really?! They work with just about everything. Any ankle-length or cropped jeans or pants are a perfect combo with these comfy shoes. You kinda can’t go wrong as long as the pants hit above the high-top. That’s the key. Let’s check out some options. See the rest of the post on TheMomEdit.com!

Today I got to step away from my home office and get out to one of my favorite consignment shops to chat all things fall style! This morning Consign Couture in Lake Oswego, Oregon (just south of Portland) hosted a style breakfast where I talked about my five favorite pieces for fall this year. Delicious Ellenos yogurt was there providing yummy treats for us all, too! I had a blast chatting print mixing, jean style trends and plaid jackets with everyone who attended.

These are the five pieces I'm adoring right now and wear one of these just about every day! We talked about cropping your jeans and how to get the perfect length (start with 1" above your ankle bone, then try them on with your most-worn pair of shoes and cut a bit more at a time until you get the perfect length), how to sub other graphic print shirts if you don't really wear sweatshirts and how to mix prints like snake print and plaid. I could chat ALL DAY about this stuff, so if anyone else is a style nerd, too, hit me up.

The owner's dog, Miso, also got to fulfill his product-repping dreams by being the new poster child for Ellenos. I mean. Omg.

What a fun morning taking a break from my normal routine of sitting at my desk everyday! I love Tamara, Nancy, Rachael & Morning Dove who all make the magic happen at the shop. Be sure to go by and check them out when you're in the area! Can't wait for our next style breakfast, friends! xo

This fall, I wanted to finally invest in a great pair of hiking boots, but that’s the thing with investing in something to wear…I need things that are not one-trick-ponies…and hiking boots can sure seem like they are just that. Important for hiking, yes, but it’d be nice to wear them more often, too.

Here in the Pacific Northwest one can actually get away with wearing hiking gear almost everywhere, but that’s a been-there-done-that look and I definitely don’t always want to look like I’m headed to the trail. Let’s just say it’s done a lot here. And you know me, I always want something more interesting than the norm — and something different. So, I decided to style up my new fabulous Danner boots into some everyday looks that are comfy and casual and cool and very me. I’ve been seeing hiking boots everywhere and styled even with dresses, so I had to give it a whirl! Check out the full post on TheMomEdit.com !
