7 Shoe Trends I’ve Never Tried [& Don’t Plan To Wear]

Posted in Fashion
on August 30, 2017

I’ve always been a pretty practical shopper. I was never the type of person who would buy something simply because other people had that item. In middle school, I wasn’t rushing to Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch every single day for the newest arrival. (I did get several things from those stores over a few holidays, though.)

There are so many trends that I personally didn’t care for; and still don’t care for to this day. There are so many that I can separate them into different categories. Today, we’re talking about shoes. Make sure to leave a comment letting me know what shoe trends you’ve jumped on the bandwagon for and which ones you’ve never liked.

1| Ugg Boots

Ugh to Ugg boots. (See what I did there?) This one is pretty simple because I couldn’t understand how a pair of boots could cost $200. I felt like the majority of my friends who owned them were always afraid to wear them because they would get dirty and ruined way too easily. So you’re spending $200 on boots you don’t want to wear because you don’t want to ruin them. Yeah, no thanks.

2| Sperry’s 

I never understood why these were so popular. But like Uggs, Sperry’s blew up in popularity when I was in high school; and every single person owned at least one pair. I remember girls in my classes would complain about the blisters they would get from first wearing them for awhile. So, again with buying something that you don’t even want to wear, but now you’re not wearing them because they’re not comfortable. It never made sense to me.

3| Adidas Sneakers

Would I wear them, maybe. But I’m probably not going to buy them regardless. I remember these were huge back in middle school. Then they were shoved in the back of everyone’s closets through high school, donated to charity by college. Now, post college, we are all buying our second pair. Funny how that works, am I right? I don’t even hate the brand or style of them, but I don’t see myself buying them because I’ve always been a Nike girl.

4| Birkenstocks

I’m sure they’re so comfortable because that is what their claim to fame is. In college, I felt like the hipsters were the first people to jump on this because that’s the actual definition of being a hipster. But, I never really saw the reason for the hype. $100 sandals that will definitely be too gross to wear after one summer of sweat and dirt. Yes, you’re right, that sounds so appealing. I’m more than fine with my inexpensive sandals to wear to the beach and during summer.

5| Converse Sneakers

Yes, really. Another pair of shoes that I know every single human being owns except for me. To be real, they make my feet look huge. I don’t know if that’s me feeling self conscious about wearing them, but they aren’t flattering on me at all. I want to like them because I feel like they’re everyone’s default choice when they need something comfortable, but I don’t see myself ever jumping on the converse kick.

6| Combat Boots

This simply comes down to style. Combat boots were never really my style. I never had an edgy look or edgy sense of style. I have always been a person who prefers to wear more classic pieces that will last for years to come rather than wearing things that are more trendy and don’t necessarily fit my style. So, they weren’t something I was interested in buying.

7| Crocs

No explanation needed.

OOTD: Creating an Outfit Around Shoes

Posted in Fashion
on November 11, 2015

BB111115-1BB111115-3 BB111115-2 BB111115-4 BB111115-6 BB111115-7

And when you’re just trying to have fun while taking photos: BB111115-8

Shop the Look:

Top: Francesca’s (color no longer available, $24)

Leggings: Macy’s (currently on sale for $31.99)

Necklace: Charming Charlie (found on Amazon, $11.99)

Shoes: Stein Mart (no longer available)

Sunglasses: Francesca’s (no longer available $10)

Clutch: Macy’s ($19.99)

I wish these shoes were still available. I couldn’t find anything remotely similar to them online (trust me, I looked for at least two hours). As much as I love shoes, I don’t always have the right outfit to pair them with because they’re so unique.

Today, I decided that it was time to bring out the shoes I love, and make them work. I decided to create an outfit filled with color, so I opted for a dark-camel colored top with rhone colored leggings. The indigo/purple shoes definitely stand out in this look, which was my goal.

Sometimes, it’s fun to create an outfit around a statement necklace or a pair of shoes. It tests my creativity with fashion, so I plan to try this more often. This post was inspired by Chelsie from “Life with Rosie.” Make sure to check out her post on how she created a look around a pair of shoes. Thank you, Cheslie for the fashion inspiration!
