We’re Kathleen and Kim, identical twins who have been sharing clothes since day one. Our blog explores the fun things in life that style-centric, forward-thinking women such as ourselves care about.

what do you love about this shoe?

“We love that the Cece Sneaker has a modern, minimalist look. It makes it the perfect blank canvas to wear with different pieces or style different ways.”

how do your personal styles differ and how are they alike?

“Our style is sooo similar! We often find ourselves liking the same trends such as puffed sleeves, 90s vibes, and animal prints. However, Kathleen’s style is more effortless and casual; you’ll notice she keeps her outfits on the simple side. Whereas Kim’s outfits are a bit more stylized and dressy; she’ll layer tops on top of each other or pile on the accessories.”

what do you look for in a
travel shoe?

“A good travel shoe has to be lightweight. We always stuff our travel bags to the brim but don’t want to exceed any weight limits for checked bags or make our bags too heavy to carry. We also want a travel shoe that works with multiple outfits that we’ve packed. That means it has to be versatile enough to pair with both a casual day outfit and a dressy evening outfit. Lastly, our travel shoes need to be up for an adventure! When we travel, we always look to experience new things. So, our shoes need to be up for a day full of walking, or camel riding, or whatever fun activity we get into!”

how would you style this sneaker from day to night?

Kathleen: “I’d style this sneaker with a girly dress for a casual day running errands. Then at night I’d throw on a blazer, cinched with a belt, and head out for drinks.”

Kim: “For the daytime, I’d wear the Cece sneaker with high-waisted skinny jeans, a silk shirt with the buttons slightly undone, and a scarf tied in my hair for that cool French girl look. In the evening, I’d dress the sneaker up just a bit with a suede mini skirt, chunky sweater, and tube socks to really play up the athleisure look of the shoes.”
