OOTD: Red Rocks & Runners

Running shoes have always been reserved for working out (at least it has been since after the Skechers craze in middle school) but we’ve finally decided to give the new trend a try. Gajamos girl Jenny here, and I paired it with white shorts and a baseball cap while touring the red rocks of Lake Mead. The jury’s still out on whether or not it works, but it was functionally perfect for a day out in the sweltering desert heat!

A little confession? These are kids shoes! Having small(ish) feet mean you can save ~30% off adult styles if youth ones are comparable! Be wary though, most strappy sandals and heels have to be bought in adult styles since the design tends to differ a great deal. (TOMs and Keds however, are perfectly fine to buy in Youth!)

  2. I think if you plan ahead exactly which outfit you want to wear on each day of your vacation, and one of those outfits includes running shoes, then it’s a great idea! Otherwise wouldn’t it take up too much space in your suitcase?
