Tennis shoes and skirts have always reminded me of Alice from the Brady Bunch. Although Alice was a funny and beloved character, she was not really a fashion icon. When I came upon some old Keds I wondered if I could pull off the pencil skirt and sporty shoe together. Or would the outfit look too Ann B Davis?
I then started noticing the trend of wearing athletic shoes and sneakers with different outfits. This made the skirt with sneaker more palatable. After pairing the necklace with my pencil skirt/tennis shoe ensemble, I knew a nicer shoe would look better, but for running errands I would feel too over dressed. So I have decided to embrace this shoe trend and at the same time, a little Ann B Davis style.
