Street Style Trainers- Its All In Colour!!


Hi everyone!! Well here in the Home Counties we've been especially lucky in having a really mild winter-so far! Today is a bit nippy but not howling rain or snow and Spring is just around the corner too-happy days!! With this in mind, I'm particularly loving trainers with colour- for a long while, the likes of Stan Smiths and classic black Converses have been on trend and as much as I'm a fan of these styles, I'm looking at footwear with colour this season.

As I'm not an avid shoe wearer- I prefer boots or sandals in summer, I've noticed that my wardrobe is acquiring trainers-slowly and surely. I'm now officially into double figures-just!!

I therefore decided that a new trainer purchase from last month should be bright for Spring/Summer- I was suitably inspired by the likes of these street stylers (credit:google images) 



Yes to multicolour- a great paring with black



Shades of blue- mixing 3 shades of one colour is a great nod to introducing some colour to your trainers




I'm loving these 'in your face' bright yellow Roshes- ideal for bringing sunshine to your outfit!!

I've had these leopardprint, orange laced up Hype trainers for a couple of years but hadn't worn them until today- it's great to pull out something new from the wardrobe that you've forgotten about!! The leopardprint and orange really zinged up my grey knit sweater and jeans and I felt I was hot footing it closer to Spring!!



I haven't worn red footwear maybe ever- certainly not trainers, so I invested in these red Nike Roshes with a navy swoosh to see me nicely into the finer weather to come:



The Roshes are made of material ideal for the warmer weather and I'm looking forward to wearing these with a variety of different outfits- they've certainly torn me away from my signature white and black trainers and I'm actually now thinking I could be persuaded to go even brighter for Summer- sunshine yellow or some neon, maybe??!!

Are you an avid trainer wearer AKA a sneakerhead??!! What colours and styles will you be wearing this coming year?

Thanks as always for stopping by, reading and commenting-it's so very much appreciated, I love hearing your thoughts and opinions on everything style related!!

ThriftMyStyle Favourite Trend- The Sweatshirt, Plus Some Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

Hi everyone! Its a lovely winters morning and with that in mind it brings me on to what my signature daytime style for this season is gravitating to. I've been finding of late that I have indeed adopted a 'style uniform' which my lovely blogger friend Michelle at My Fashionable 40s mentioned in her fabulous post on 'Wise Style Words' and certainly for me it's all about the sweatshirt, jeans, trainers and chosen winter coat or jacket on top.
  So my recent thrifting trips have seen me adding to my growing sweatshirt collection this week with a couple more finds as seen below:



I already had the black DRMTM sweatshirt (new from a couple of years ago) and the United Colors of Benetton one (recent thrift find), which are both firm favourites and worn regularly. The Swedish Cheap Monday sweatshirt was a find from the Cancer Research charity shop for just £4.20 and literally 10 minutes later I found the grey cropped style Gap sweatshirt in the British Heart Foundation charity shop for just £4.30!! 

The Cheap Monday sweat is ideal for wearing right now-a darker shade of grey for winter and I'm really loving logo tops as they work so effortlessly with jeans and trainers for a stylish, on the go outfit that is pretty comfortable too!! The light grey Gap sweatshirt is an ideal Spring/Summer one which I'm sure will be a regular wear.


A new sweatshirt which my lovely son got for me is this logo sweat by Nicce London- it has a lovely fleecy lining and is a crop style which works well with higher waisted jeans. 


Sweatshirts never date and fpr me are a real style essential- the Benetton I found last month is an original 90s one which has stood the test of time and I'll be on the look out for other retro sweatshirts or T-shirts this year on my thrifting trips!!

Onto some more style inspiration from the First Lady of Parisian Fashion-Carine Roitfeld who has brought a chic collab with Uniqlo- hooray!!

I'm lusting over the blouson jackets-the reversible ones are gorgeous and the camo pieces are also on my radar too!! 






A really stylish and amazing collection which is so chic, wearable and on point for this season- are you tempted to indulge in any of the pieces??

What is currently in your daytime wardrobe this season- do you have a signature style for daytime or do you like a different look every day? Thank you so much for stopping by to read and comment too- its so very much appreciated especially when my posts are quite sporadic and irregular- I'm hoping to post more in general so please do continue to "watch this space!!"
