NB MiUSA at boston calling

 Wearing: c/o New Balance 574 Custom Sneakers (designed by moi!)

Everyone knows New Balance, but did you know that they are the only major company to make athletic footwear in the USA? It's hard to find clothing, let alone sneakers, that are made locally & to hear that New Balance is one is a breath of fresh air - especially since they are headquartered right in Boston with five factories in New England!

Lucky for me, New Balance asked me to cover Boston Calling Music Festival this weekend, all while sporting a pair of custom NB sneakers made right here in the pretty U.S. of A. It all ties back to their MiUSA Heritage of Craftsmanship Tour - a tour that is stopping at music, art, & food festivals across the country for the entire summer to teach you, the consumers, more about domestic manufacturing & NB's heritage of craftsmanship! New Balance will have a MiUSA booth at Boston Calling (look for me there!) where you can see custom products, customize your own pair of sneaks, & take part in fun, interactive elements.

The whole process to customize your own pair of NB sneakers is beyond cool. The site is simple, yet interactive, letting you choose everything from the color of your laces to the color of the iconic New Balance logo. The best part is, you can see how your shoe will look (from all angles) before placing your order! Who wouldn't want to rock a pair of sneakers that have you & your style written all over them? I even had "Allie Wears" threaded into the back.. um, how cool!

I'll be at Boston Calling with New Balance on both Friday & Saturday! Send me a tweet & come say hi!

Wearing: H&M A-line Dress & Fringe Shoulder Bag | c/o Frye Reina Booties via ShoeBuy | Free People Sunnies

Ah, Frye.. every girl owns a pair & if you don't, you should. These little black booties are as soft as butter & fit like a glove. I have such a hard time finding boots that fit my awkwardly small ankles & shins, & finally Frye Reina Booties entered my life. The great thing about booties is that they can absolutely transition from fall & winter into the warmer months. I paired these booties with this printed dress to the MayFair in Harvard Sq. over the weekend & am not lying when I say I was stopped at least a dozen times by girls who were drooling over my outfit. I'm telling you.. a comfortable dress & cute booties.. you can't go wrong!

It's no surprise that I have an obsessively large shoe collection, even dedicating my #WCW to it. When I stumbled across ShoeBuy.com, I was in heaven. ShoeBuy is one stop shop for hundreds of shoe brands & styles.. it literally took me days to pick out my top favorites. Now that warm weather is here & here to stay, I'm styling my favorite Spring shoes for you from ShoeBuy. Check back soon to see how I style these sky high wedges!

Wearing: Free People Slip (simliar) |  Forever 21 Metallic Sandals | c/o Custom Airbrush Tan by Pure Glow Organic Sunless Tanning

I saw this dress slip on the sale rack at Free People & fell instantly in love. What I loved most about it is it's simplicity. I quickly envisioned myself wearing it on a hot summer day, with a sun kissed tan, beachy waves, all while running barefoot through damp grass. & just like that.. my dream came true!

The perfect addition to this outfit was a flawless custom spray tan by Pure Glow. I love that the ingredients are safe & healthy - so important to know what you're putting on your skin! After a quick airbrush session, my skin was left looking sun-kissed (I got Level 1) & feeling soft & silky smooth. My tan has lasted more than a week & I am beyond happy with the results.. so happy, in fact, that I'm considering adding it to my monthly beauty routine! Lucky for you, I am offering my readers 10% off when you mention allie wears during booking. You're welcome!

Wearing: BCBGMaxazria Rosanna Cutout Jumpsuit | c/o Rebecca Minkoff Mac Daddy Crossbody | BCBGeneration Heels | c/o Celine Sunnies via SmartBuyGlasses | Gorjana Cuff  (similar)| Banana Republic Ring

I love me a jumpsuit.. especially BCBGMaxazria jumpsuits. I own quite a few & when I saw this beauty hanging on the rack last weekend I had to have it. Granted, $300 for a jumpsjuit is a little ridiculous but if you know me you know I used a coupon so I got this baby for $200. To me, a cute, well fitted jumpsuit is the equivalent of a LBD. I can't have too many & the best part is, they'll never go out of style. I love how the cutout back gives it a bit of sex appeal while still remaining classy.. I'm wearing a onesie, for fashion's sake!

I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty productive, including a Derby day spent with friends & a Sunday wandering around Harvard Sq. for the Mayfair. Not to mention, I shopped 'til I dropped at Free People, picking up this cute kimono & these denim cutoff shorts
