I am excited to share today’s fun look thanks to these awesome Elaine Turner cork sneakers. Also, so sad that this is the last look from Savannah. If you’ve missed previous ones you can see them all here.

Back to the sneakers though, how fun are these? I saw them and was immediately obsessed. They’re funky, fabulous, and incredibly comfortable. Aka they were great for exploring and walking lots and lots in Savannah. My favorite part about these sneakers is that they allow your feet to breathe. With the lower cut on both sides you get a nice airflow. Might sound silly but it really helps with keeping your feet cooler and fresh!  Obviously the fact that they are cork is pretty awesome too!

Would you wear these sneakers? If so, or if you’re thinking maybe, let me share a couple of tips for wearing them + how else I would style them. 

Dresses: Go for a shorter length. With the ankle strap + a midi length dress may make you appear shorter and wider {no one wants that!}. Casual dresses like the one I’m wearing in this post are a great match for the sneakers. I also think shorter empire waist or fit and flares would be super cute! The combination would create a very playful look. 

Denim: Skinny jeans in both white or a classic blue wash would be a perfect pairing. Roll the hem up a bit if it doesn’t show the ankle strap. Cropped denim would be really cute! Right now I’m picturing a really cute pair of ripped white denim skinnies with a simple tee looking adorable! Also, distressed rolled hem boyfriend jeans would be super cute with a feminine top tucked in. 

Shorts: An easy pairing for sure. Denim cut offs would be great paired with a classic button down or graphic tee. Also, a preppy embroidered pair would be cute too. If you go with a preppy pair, I’d reach for a simple tee. 

Accessorize: Have fun! Oversized sunnies, a straw tote, or canvas tote like I’m wearing. Or a simple cross body in a bright hue would be a lot of fun! 

P.S. some of my other favorites from Elaine Turner include these suede sneakers {obsessed}, spunky cork sandals, lace up wedges, and similar cork sneakers in a different style.  

Thank you to Elaine Turner for sponsoring this post. All views and opinions are of course my own!

    Such a unique pair of shoes and so much fun! I have a pair of block heels with a cork heel and I love them. The sneakers would be a great way to mix it up!

      Exactly why I fell for them initially. I had never seen a pair like them! Oh cute, I love block heels so I’d definitely be a fan of those.
