MUST DO MONDAY: BOND WITH A LOVED ONE

StairsWe all have those people on our hit list: the friends and family who fall under those phrases like “I should really give her a call” or “I haven’t seen him in forever.” Whether they’re old friends and relatives you never get to visit, or people you see every day like your spouse, partner or kids, we all feel like we should make more “we” time with those we love. Today’s the day!

Park Bench

Reconnect with the person at the very top of your list with a call, email or text… or if you’re feeling adventurous, drop by for a visit. Plan a fun surprise outing together, or make it as simple as a walk in the neighborhood to enjoy some quiet time. Chances are, your loved ones have been thinking of you just as much, and would be thrilled if you beat them to the punch.

Who did you get to reconnect with today? Tell us about your visit in the comments!

MUST-DO MONDAY: HEAD OUTDOORS

Summer officially starts next week, and we’re inspired to get outside and check out all of the ways we can enjoy the longest days of the year. Whether it’s a beach, the woods, or even a walk in your local park or neighborhood, there are endless ways to enjoy the beauty of the world around us.

We all know how helpful exercise is, and it offers are a slew of health benefits that help women in unique ways (like playing a role in preventing everything from women’s cancers to osteoporosis and heart disease, which kills more women than men every year). But there’s a lot to say for simply improving your daily mood by just stepping outdoors and enjoying the fresh air. It offers a change of pace to the regular routine, and for those who make it a regular practice, it can really transform the tone of your summer.

We always love to check out local hikes online, or explore new ways to walk to local destinations like grocery stores, restaurants and libraries. What’s the next place you’ll explore?

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!

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!
