Keds were on my May-be list

I have a may-be list on which I write down items that I might be interested in when the item and price are right, i.e. items that are not must haves for me. A cute pair of Keds was on the may be list since a while as I wanted some flat “old school” sport shoe look-a-likes with print for swing dancing. Thus, when I saw this pair of Keds on sale for 50% off I bought them. They came with red and white laces. I put in the white ones as it looks more preppy.

Keds are great in fall in Alaska

When I put them into my closet I decided that I would wear them at least once to work this fall when it is sunny. There is already the first gravel on campus as a left-over of the first snowfall. This time is really bad for any fancy heels as there is no way to avoid stepping on gravel, but it is still too early for heavy boots.

How I styled the Keds

In this Casual Friday look, I kept the upper body classic with a silk sweater, silk scarf and blazer. I added sleek leather jogging pants and Keds. The type of pants and its sleekness and the colors tie the unusual semi-classic casual look together. For the commute to work I added a trench coat and my Jaeger tote.
