Soaking up some Vitamin D in late November.

When you encounter a 65 degree day at the end of November, you relish in the fact that you sadly received a a handful of days embodying crisp, autumn air before reveling in the sunlight. Although I bundled up with my new teddy bear coat, I half wore it as the darker brown complemented my most recent pickup from Kith’s Monday Program. I snagged this hoodie for my sister and her boyfriend, and of course, my husband, while learning that the Kith stores receive the bulk of quantity in comparison to its availability online (duh!).

I completed this look with my Puma Desert Thunders as the pale pink tones went with the light-colored tans in my  outfit. For an extra shine, I snagged my rose gold purse, which my good friend (often referred to as my cousin) gifted me for being her bridesmaid.

Jacket: Uniqlo.

Sweatshirt: Kith.

Jeans: Express.

Sneakers: Puma Thunder Desert.

Puma Thunder Desert

The perfect chunky sneaker for fall.

Summer, please leave. We need fall now.

Puma recently launched its newest mainstream silhouette, the Thunder Desert sneaker. An addition to the chunky “dad” footwear trend, the shoe has an eye-catching appearance with its mixture of leather, mesh and suede textures. The Thunder Desert comes complete with its chunky sole, which emulates a 1990s cell-system running shoe. I personally love footwear with pull tabs because I’m constantly on the run. The faster I can pull off my kicks, the better.

One aspect that stood out to me upon receiving these sneakers: the lace-up style. Perhaps it’s the thick-roped laces that drew my eyes to the way it’s uniquely threaded. You can choose to either tie a cute bow, or find a way to loop the laces into the tongue. I opted for the Natural Vachetta colorway, although Puma also released this in a Smoke Green tone.

It’s exciting to see how brands cater to the latest fashion trends with different styles that embody each company. You can buy what’s left of Puma’s inventory, or check out suppliers such as Nordstrom, Six02 or Lady Foot Locker to cop in time for leafy season.
