I jumped on the Huarache bandwagon last fall, while visiting a SIX:02 location, here in Dallas. Initially, I was shopping for pieces from Rihanna’s apparel line, Fenty x Puma, but I got distracted. I wandered over to the shoes, and one of the reps encouraged me to try on a pair of Huaraches. My initial thought was, These shoes are difficult to put on. However, that didn’t stop me from wanting them. After stuffing my feet into the 8, I pranced around the store in hopes of finding a way to talk myself out of buying them — nope. Needless to say, I went home with the sneakers. Mind you, I’ve never paid over $50 for sneakers, so I guess that’s why I had a case of buyer’s remorse. I returned the sneakers the next day, only to end up snagging an Adidas bomber I spotted before eyeing the Huaraches.
To my surprise, I was gifted a pair for Christmas from the SIX:02 team! It was totally unexpected, and the shoes arrived a few weeks prior. Huaraches are a stylish sneaker; once you get them on, they’re super comfortable. Eventually, I’ll wear these whenever I go running (which will probably be never 🙃). My first wear was last week, and I paired them with a top from MissGuided. I like really like the idea of wearing rocker tees with leather bottoms, and completing the look with an edgy sneaker.

This June, I’ve partnered with SIX:02 to bring you athletic chic-inspired looks. Speaking of athletic chic, ever since I spotted Rihanna wearing the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals Dress w/ split, I had to have it for myself. Okay, maybe not the exact dress, but something remotely close. The one I’m wearing below is similar to the aforementioned number with the exception of the neckline. As you can see, mine has a scoop neck and Rihanna’s dress has a v-neck. When I walked into SIX:02, there I spotted the Adidas Originals 3-Stripes Dress. I immediately tried it on with a cool pair of all-white Adidas Originals Superstars. I couldn’t wait to share this look with you all. Who knew a glove-fitting dress could be deemed both athletic and sexy? LOL

I’ll admit it: I’ve jumped on the sporty chic bandwagon by partnering with SIX:02! If you haven’t heard, Adidas Original Pharrell’s Pink Beach SS16 Collection has landed both online and in stores. Adidas has definitely raised the bar by offering super cute athletic wear that can be worn just about anywhere.
The collaboration dropped early May, and includes a range of bold summer goodness in the form of printed tees, jackets, and more. I got my hands on the sassy, Daisies Leggings that can be worn to your evening workout sesh or paired with a crop for a relaxed, yet stylish look.
