One of my favorite trends for this summer is rocking cute sneakers with a playful summer dress. Part of the reason I'm so in love is that I get to look cute, wear a dress, and oh yeah...wear comfortable shoes! When we were out shooting this look, I actually uttered the phrase, "I forgot what's it's like to have feet that aren't hurting". Yikes! Ever since this trend picked back up this season, I've been loading up on cute kicks and sporting them with some of my favorite playful dresses.

Part of why I love the sneaker + dress combo is that it's counter intuitive. It's the juxtaposition of the two different styles meeting together that makes it work so fabulously. It's also a way for someone with a more feminine style (like me) to wear something close to street style.

The best way to make the sneakers meets dress combo work is to rock a more feminine dress. I personally prefer one that flares out more rather than a shift. I also like to wear the Keds style simple lace ups. They are perfect for making this look work instead of sneakers that look clunky.
