Truly, one of the most annoying things in the world is targeted marketing online. Even more annoying? When it works. Ugh

In case you hadn't guessed, these cherry-print Superga sneakers were served to me across the internet, from checking Instagram on my phone to scrolling through Facebook on my computer. I have been trying to resist them because, what, you think my tastes are so codifiable, advertising agents?! 

Well, it turns out, they absolutely are, because the more I saw these, the more I wanted them. I can't do sandals in the city (can you blame me?) so easy shoes like cute sneakers and slip-ons are what get me through warmer weather. The navy color would work just as well with jeans and a tee as it would my midi-length skirts. Bonus: The cherry print reminds me of Altuzarra's incredible Spring 2017 collection. I guess sometimes being catered to on the web isn't so bad.
