Loving Keds

There’s something about a pair of Keds. I mean, you throw on a pair of Keds and you can literally do anything. I wore them hiking with my friend last weekend, I wore them on the beach in L.A., I wore them on the metro in Paris with my sister. They’re wonderful and versatile and comfortable while you’re dancing and always available to throw on and go adventuring.

My often-mentioned hero and imaginary best friend Taylor Swift designs for Keds, so you know the shoes are perfect to wear with vintage-style sweaters and ’60s dresses and, of course, red lipstick.

I got this new pair of white Keds that I paired with my favorite Topshop shirt and sherbert-orange shorts.

I love these gray polka-dot shoes that Taylor designed. I wore them with a patterned-filled outfit: lace shorts and a floral top. This was such a summery afternoon, my friend and I took our bikes down to the waterfront and ate ice cream and talked about Justin Timberlake and vacationing in the Canary Islands.

One of Keds’ big campaigns is to promote bravery in its many forms, encouraging girls to be brave enough to put themselves out there for a job interview or to try woodworking or whatever. I think bravery comes from just refusing to be embarrassed about yourself. Journal your thoughts/stories/feelingz/lyrics and don’t be embarrassed about what you have to say! Your words, individual style and beliefs are ridiculously important and unique, you know?

I truly and completely feel brave in Keds (not like, Russell Crowe in “Gladiator” brave, but more like Angela Chase talking to Jordan Catalano brave). They make me feel like myself, like a stylish, comfortable, fun Lily. 🙂 Isn’t that lovely?

Stay golden,
Lily
