For all the sport luxe enthusiasts out there, you'll know that the white sneaker trend has been going on for quite some time now and it appears that it's here to stay. I've never been one to keep up with sneaker related trends, simply because I'm not much of a sneaker girl myself. However, I do believe that it is essential to have a classic pair as part of your wardrobe staples; and if you ask me, nothing beats the original white sneaker since 1908. I'm referring to Chuck Taylor All Stars of course; the only sneaker that has managed to capture my heart ever since I can remember.

I've been searching high and low for a pair of white-on-white leather Chuck Taylor's for several months and I unexpectedly got my hands on one sometime last week thanks to the sweetest salesman at the Shesha sportswear store in Sandton City (not sponsored). I had given up on ever finding my size, thanks to my baby sized feet but to my surprise, it was available and I didn't even think twice.

What I love most about this particular sneaker is that they go with practically anything, allowing you to dress it up or down. They're not as bulky as most sneakers, ensuring that I remain ultra feminine which is important me because #GirlPower. I opted for a look that was somewhat edgy yet feminine. I paired various textures together from white denim to leather to the suede details in my backpack and I finished the look off with a sultry dark lip.
