High Tops and Lowlights

I wouldn't call my style sporty by any means, but when I saw these Gola Liberty high top sneakers on clearance on American Eagle's website, I had to have them.

I was first introduced to Liberty of London when Target brought it to the masses in 2010. I went crazy for the cute, colorful prints and ended up with a few items that I still consider standouts in my wardrobe.

So, I was pumped for the shoes to arrive at my door. But once they did, I wasn't sure what I would wear them with. I rock a lot of 50s- and 60s-style dresses, and I couldn't think of a way to make these kicks work with that type of look.

I decided instead to wear them with basic black skinnies and a top with just a touch of blue. It's about as sporty as I'll ever get.

I also went darker with my hair a few days ago to better match my brunette roots.
