(ABOVE) I was so happy to find classic Keds white sneakers that were leather. I’m hoping they will be easier to care for than white canvas.

Wednesday, May 18, 2016/Video Post Notes

I’ve been wanting a pair of white leggings for a while, but have been concerned about them being too sheer. (My knees and thighs are not what they used to be.) These by Lysse, which I found at Nordstrom, were exactly what I wanted.

Because they are white, you do still see a slight underwear line, so I prefer a longer length sweater or shirt over them.  They are not so sheer that lumps and bumps on my legs show, however, and that’s why I got them.  They also have a cute, unobtrusive zipper at the ankle that gives them a sportier feeling, and they have a mid-section panel that keeps wobbly bits in place.

The other item on my summer wish list was a pair of classic white sneakers.  I wanted leather instead of canvas, so they’d be easier to maintain (I hope).  I found these Keds at Amazon and am thrilled with them. Not only are they comfortable for walking, they also are a slimmer look than some others I’ve seen. Next, I plan to try them with a shorter-length skirt or dress. How fun! ~Janis Lyn Johnson
