At first I was a little.. eh.. hesitant at this ruffle trend. Thought it was to fancy pantsy girly.
BUT, I must say. It is stunning & so chic. Didn’t think I would like, but now I am UH-bessed. I want every single one I just linked for you. Super cute for this Summer.
ALSO I literally figured out how to keep these DAMN string lace up shoes to STAY while you’re walking around. I was bond & determined to figure it out! There is nothing more annoying than the laces just untying & falling as you walk… right? Like I am cringing thinking about it. haha.
So whats the trick?
FIRST start by wrapping really really low on the ankle, then as you’re wrapping them up place each one very close together— almost overlapping each other. Got it?
Okay, next you want to either tie it on the back of the leg, or front. I guess it is personal preference, but I did on the front because that is the only way I could without the laces being to long.
When you tie it off, tuck the left over lace under, if you can and if you want. Again, personal preference. BUT the trick is keeping them VERY close together as low as possible.
If you like to lace them all the way up your leg, then be prepared to be re-tying those babies up every 10 steps. At least that is my problem I have with them.
Does anyone else have any tricks they would like to share, or better yet, have any of you found lace up that actually STAY PUT?! Please do share!
Headed to meditate now, on day 11. Has anyone done the headspace app? Or doing it? How are you liking it?!
Chat with you later,
