CIAO BELLAS,

Hope you have the patience for this post because it’s going to be a very long one. Probably one of the longest till now. I am very excited to write it and to share the pictures because I had an absolutely gorgeous day and felt incredibly happy and bubbly. How can you not feel good on a sunny, golden day filled with cupcakes and ice cream?! Yeah, sometimes, I feel that I am so engulfed in everyday activities and things that I must do, that I totally forget that an ice cream bought from a local ice cream shop can make your day complete. Yes, a little colourful and flavourful ice cream may make you return to your inner child and make you behave like that for a moment or two, and this is so rewarding.

I adopted a very light and casual outfit. I am very fond of my tulle skirt that can be pretty elegant and in the most cases I would wear it with some cute heels, but today I decided to go a bit unusual and pair it with my tennis shoes that created a casual and comfy feel and look. This look is pretty much inspired from the 1980 when something very interesting happened in New York City  that reinforced the relationship between high heels and social status. On April 1, the employees of the Transport Workers Union just walked off their jobs, leaving the city’s subways and busses inoperable. Out of a sudden people found themselves in the situation where they had to cross bridges and walk to their jobs. The event became especially thorny for the ladies that were accustomed to riding to their jobs in heels. Thus, many chose to walk in sneakers, tucking their heeled pumps in their suitcases. You could see elegantly dressed business women in their skirt suits and white athletic shoes confidently walking on the streets. Of course, there was a category of ladies that could afford taxis and limousines and for them, the high heeled sandals were not a problem. Soon, after successful negotiations, the transit system got up and running again, but women found the athletic shoes too comfortable and now socially acceptable, so they continued wearing them to and from work. This is when the sneaker companies like Reebok started to identify a change in what women wanted from their lives, and therefore from their shoes. “There is nothing left to talk about/unless it’s horizontally” was Olivia Newton-John singing and there was no mistaking in that. This trend disappeared in the late 90s, but now as “everything is in” the sporty-elegant woman is coming back. I can say that I totally love it! It’s just such a playful way to dress and feel. Plus my feet felt happy. What shoes are your favourites?

 Hope you all have a beautiful and comfy day!

With love,

Sabina
