Hello Darlings, It's officially the season of a sneaker! With Jimmy Choo, YSL, Lanvin, to Miu Miu — all offering sneakers with animals prints, sequins and metallic details — similar to the designer tee craze a few seasons ago, this season it is all about designer fashion forward sneakers. Like beautiful designer pumps, these darlings will cost a pretty penny but are definitely worth saving up for.
At first weary, I hopped on the sneaker bandwagon last week. After receiving a beautiful pair of Alexander McQueen x Puma sneakers as a gift, I was starting to understand all the hype. At a first look they were not my style but after a few wears I was sold on the idea — now I live in them! Aside from being super comfy, they are also practical for rainy and cold fall days.
In a similar way, last spring I took a leap and decided to purchase a pair of wedge See by Chloe sneakers. Like with this pair, I was initially somewhat uncomfortable wearing the trend. I loved the shoes but they just didn't seem to work with my style. Boy was I wrong, after a little prancing around the closet, it turned out that both pairs were a fresh addition that my closet needed.

Taking risks with fashion is a great idea but I am still not a fan of purchasing trends only with hopes that you will love them later. As a rule of thumb, every season try one fun trend that you are nervous about! Sometimes it will not work out, but more often than not you may hate it! But still do not be afraid of taking the occasional fashion risk! This season these kicks are my fashion risk and I am glad that I gave them a chance.
