MUST-DO MONDAY: PREP YOUR KIDS FOR SUMMER

Just a few more weeks before the kids are out of school! Summer’s a favorite time for children and families, but you can make it even better with a little pre-planning. Check out all the ways you can turn three months into a lifetime of great memories.

2The great outdoors. Hiking, swimming, waterskiing, river rafting, arts and crafts, s’mores and camp songs. Whether it’s day camp or week-long caravans, summer’s a great time for kids to explore mountains, forests, beaches, caves and more. Sign them up for their favorite activities, or try out a few new ones. Space is often limited and goes quickly for the most popular camps, so be sure to start early and lock in spots now for your little ones.

Travel. If you’ve been itching for a place to take your kids beyond the classic camp adventure, summer’s the perfect season to venture to new cities, states, and even countries if you’re feeling ambitious. Create your very own adventure by stocking up on travel books at the bookstore or library, and choose a place that the entire family can explore. Hotels, motels, RVs, home rentals – there are a million ways to get to know a new place. Poll your coworkers, ask friends and go online for tips on hidden restaurants and local haunts. If heading abroad, check your passports now: a non-rush renewal can take four to six weeks, and kids’ passports expire every five years (plus some countries require that your passport expires at least six months after your trip dates).

IMG_6802Gear up. Every outdoor outing needs gear to match! Stock up on 30 SPF sunscreen and sun hats to keep the rays off the kids, along with UV-protective polycarbonate sunglasses that offer shatterproof protection. Do a test run of their swim suits to avoid any surprises on pool day. And stock up on name tags and labels so they come home with everything they left home with (or at least as much as possible).

Skechers has some great summer styles as well: sandals for the sand, water-friendly shoes and rugged boots for the outdoors. And of course, our go-anywhere collection of sneakers for boys and girls.

Indoor fun. Indoor time has never been more fun and imaginative – thanks to the slew of creative activities at your disposal. Get them lost in all kinds of worlds through your favorite books. Strike up your own masterpiece with coloring books. Become the master of popsicle and ice cream makers, and new discoveries like kinetic sand and science kits that cover everything from electricity to magnetics, chemistry and more. You can even order caterpillars for kids and help them grow their very own butterflies.

3Above all, make memories. Take a few minutes out of every day to enjoy the longer days (and stargazing nights) and spend some time together. Even the simplest experiences (an evening walk, dinner outdoors, a board game) can mean a lot to your kids. Collect snaps of this summer’s adventures to share with family and friends now, and your kids in the future. Most importantly, do everything you can to live in the moment and enjoy the most special thing in our lives: each other.

Styles shown: the Empire – Rock Around sneaker in Neon Pink/Coral and the Skech Appeal – Fabtastic sneaker in Gray/Mint.

URBAN RETRO WITH SKECHERS ORIGINALS

We recently debuted the all new Skechers Originals collection with a splashy Meghan Trainor commercial that featured the pop star dancing in a swanky club to the sounds of her hit single, “NO.”  That cool urban club was the ideal backdrop to launch the retro sneaker collection because these fun sneakers pair perfectly with the contemporary casual style of those who spend their lives in the city. Every pair features an Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole to ensure that you’ll be comfortable even standing on a long G-train ride from your place in Red Hook to that new hot spot in Williamsburg.

For women, bright and unique colors and patterns help drive a distinctive look that feels at home against creative graffiti popping through the sometimes drab summer landscape of brick, cement and asphalt. Select styles even offer a hidden wedge for a little extra height to give you an advantage in the crowd the next time your favorite local band sneaks in a surprise set at a busy neighborhood block party.

Part of the appeal of the OG line is that many styles offer a unisex look that could look great on anyone.  And the men’s collection includes a lot of neutral colors perfect for lounging outside a cafe or watching the action at the corner basketball courts.  Worn with any variety or color of denim, whether you’re headed uptown, downtown or crosstown, these sneakers will get you through that lazy Sunday in any borough.

The Skechers Originals collection is available now with more styles on the way. Shop the collection for women and men, and share your favorite Skechers Originals looks on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with #MTrainSkechers.

BLOG TAKEOVER: MISS MINUS SIZED STYLES UP SUMMER

Warm weather is quickly approaching… so we asked popular blogger Miss Minus Sized for a few unique ways to style her favorite Skechers this season.

I’m looking forward to trading my well used and abused winter boots for effortless casual pairs that can be chic, functional AND versatile. That’s a lot to ask of a pair of shoes, you say? Read on to see why, for these three particular styles, it isn’t.🙂

 

Look 1: Summer Casual

This style will be your go-to entry to chic city this summer. I’ve literally been daydreaming of a day in the near future when I can wear this fun look on a sunny Sunday coffee run or an afternoon of pool-side lounging. These comfortable Criss-Crossover sandals (at select Skechers stores) come in the most versatile neutral camel shade, and are the perfect accessory to balance out the fun colors and prints in this breezy blouse + distressed shorties combo! Or pair them with cool, breezy beach pants perfect for soaking up the summer rays.

 

Look 2: Flirty Florals

Bohemian romance is a big trend this year, and a breezy floral dress like this one is the perfect gateway into it! Boho details like tassels, fringe and vintage jewelry set the perfect stage for the carefree vibe of Golden Hour sandals. Throw in a braid or two and a nice roomy tote, and we’re all set for the farmer’s market, brunch or pretty much anything that requires getting some of that Vitamin D.🙂

 

Look 3: Laid-Back Layers

Whether you identify yourself as sporty or not, let’s admit it… comfortable sneakers are a necessity. I used to be the kind who reserves her sneakers for gym trips, working out and such, but consider me reformed! Now, if you happen to run into me, nine times out of ten, I’m in a pair of cute but comfy sneakers. These grey B’Weavers are such a great update to my basic sneaker line-up. The color works across all seasons and just like the other neutrals, seems to go with everything!

Miss Minus Sized) is a doctoral student in the biomedical sciences, and credits fashion as her creative escape from the daily trials of academic life. Her blog documents her evolving personal style at a budget of less than $50 a month. You can also find her on Instagram and Facebook.

 

 

 

 

 

GET MONOCHROMATIC WITH NORMCORE FEATURING D’LITES

Sometimes you just want to be comfortable without the flash and effort that goes into dressing to impress. Now those everyday anti-trend casual basics of the nineties has evolved into a style unto itself and two decades later that blank canvas look has become the trend known as normcore. Built on the foundation of blending in with unpretentious and average-looking style—it’s a rejection of the loud and flashy look-at-me culture driving our social media reality-tv obsessed world. Finally, it’s hot to be comfortable and desirable to be effortlessly basic. As Skechers was born in the nineties, we still offer designs inspired by the looks of that era that will flawlessly pair to your everyday normcore style.

Perfect for hanging out with friends on the weekend or a night out in the city feeling cool and comfortable, Skechers D’Lites have been a mainstay in the collection for more than decade.  Inspired by the big unisex Skechers Sport sneakers born in the nineties, every pair has been updated with a soft Skechers Memory Foam insole that delivers total comfort.  Available in whites and blacks, these styles pair perfectly with denim and a tee or go with the overalls and dress it down even more. Who cares so why not?   Seen in the photos:   Biggest Fan in black/white and Fresh Start in black.

As summer approaches and the days get hotter, the sunshine practically demands you wear sandals. With platform outsoles that deliver an incredible amount of cushioning, the Cali Cloud9 and Skechers Burst—Introspect sandals will feel great heading to an outdoor concert or festival, browsing at the record store, or just lounging around. Available in basic blacks and whites, these sandals will match up with worn jean shorts and the first plain tee you grab in your drawer.

Normcore means different things to everyone so tell us your thoughts on today’s top trend in the comments.  We also want to see how you pair Skechers to create the perfect look.  Show us your favorites on Instragram with #skechersstyle and #normcore today!

 

BLOG TAKEOVER: A DAY IN A MOM’S LIFE

 

In celebration of Mother’s Day next week, we asked the multi-talented Amy Kavelaris to share moments of her life as a mom. The artist, author, illustrator, art school owner and blogger dressed up in her favorite Skechers and shared her personal side with us in a series of beautiful snaps that chronicle a day in her life.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Although I work from home several days a week, we are also constantly on-the-go. Truth be told, we are crazy about our Skechers and how they have every kind of shoe for every activity under the sun. Their Skechers Memory Foam insoles are dreamy and I am often amazed at all of the different beautiful styles!

Here we are at my art school, Bloom-Prints Studio. In this beautiful, eclectic space, with original hard-wood plank floors dating back to the turn of the century, I am constantly inspired while teaching fine art classes to all ages.

Art Studio 1

“Surround yourself with great content” has always been my motto, so as often as we can, our little family loves to find a great museum, or a historical site for inspiration. We adore our Milwaukee Art Museum, and the classes and enrichment they offer (you might have seen it featured in Transformers 3).

Since my husband and I both own businesses, we are constantly working. So, as a family we find it crucial to unplug and find time to play with our sweet girl. We live in the Midwest in an area called the “Lake Country.” So of course whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter… you can usually find us at the lake.

And ANY opportunity we get, we spend time outdoors. Here we are, parkside, reading our book Bloom With Mi which I wrote and illustrated. It’s a sweet story about a girl named “Mi” who learns how to give back and celebrate others, and a portion of every sale goes towards a different give-back organization each month.

Picnic 2

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and blooming Mother’s Day! And thank you for stopping by!

Picnic 3Drawn in black and white to connect with every girl, Amy Kavelaris’ best-selling book Bloom with Mi is a sweet tale of a girl named “Mi” who has an opportunity to make life about herself… or about others. Every time she decides to use her gifts for someone else, she leaves her “bloom” behind. Follow the Bloom With Mi journey on Instagram as @AmyKavs, at Amy’s blog or on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
