A pair of sneakers and a dress is an outfit combo fashion girls always keep in their back pocket. It puts a modern twist on the conventional sweetness of a dress, without looking like you’ve expended a ton of effort. I love the idea of accessorizing a colorful maxi dress with a tiny vintage bag and vibrant sneakers to match.
