My Latest Pair of Sneakers + Where I Bought Them

Hey there, friends! 

During the week, when I’m hunkering down at my favorite local coffee shop to crank through my to do list, I’m typically wearing something super casual and laid-back. The chances that the look is considered ‘athleisure’ is pretty high! However, it’s been a minute since I’ve shared one here on the blog so today I’m excited to share this one with eBay

I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair of sneakers lately. I always wear this old pair that is really started to look super worn down. I found these New Balance 247 sneakers online and decided to see if I could get them on eBay for a little less. Turns out, I found a brand new pair being sold in my size for a little less than the other retailer. Score! I paired them with this cute athleisure look I wore last week on my quick trip to Laguna Beach. Sunsets on the West Coast are not to be missed so I just wanted to put on something super comfortable after a long travel day. I love that the undertones of the pink in the shoes match the undertones of my Zella leggings! I love when that happens! Be sure to go one full size down in both of those, by the way, to get the best fit!

I paired both of these with an old hooded white sweatshirt. Although it’s an old favorite, you can count on eBay to have some really cute similar ones, like this one

If you’re new to shopping eBay, or it’s been awhile, here are some of my favorite things that surprised me when I got back into shopping there:

• 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy It Now” option, so there’s no bidding necessary! Whew! Thank goodness!

• 69% off all merchandise ships for free and, I mean, who doesn’t love free shipping?

• There are approximately 1.1 billion listings at any given time for you to consider, which means there’s a strong chance you’ll find what you’re looking for!

These are the things that have made me feel so much more confident about shopping at eBay so I hope that the next time you’re in need of a new pair of sneakers, you’ll consider checking out eBay! It’s a great place to look! 

Thanks for stopping by today, friends! xo.

    I love ebay because whenever I want something specific chances are I won’t be able to find it in my country so I always look for it on ebay. It’s an amazing website and I love how cheap things can be. Those sneakers look super cute, I love anything blush or baby pink.
