So, as some of you know, I dislocated my knee last month, and I’m off of the sky-high heels for a bit. *Cries internally. However, I’m lucky because it could have been much worse. About two weeks after my injury, I was feeling down about it during my commute. I said to myself, “Why is this happening to me? I can’t dance, run, or wear heels anymore.” Then, as soon as I thought this, I see a man with both legs amputated. I thought to myself, “Wow, I am such a brat. He’s in worse shape than me, and he’s not crying.”
He probably would’ve been glad to be in my situation – dealing with a temporary injury rather than an issue that was for life. In that moment, God definitely meant for me to see that to prove how blessed I truly am. He showed me how minor my situation was and that it could have definitely been much worse! So, next time you have an obstacle or inconvenience, realize that it’s only going to make you stronger!
But like I said, no more 6-inch heels for a while, which is quite alright because there are tons of supportive and stable boots that are so hot this season! So take a look at some of my favorite fall footwear trends, and I’ve also added some stiletto-boots in the mix. Wear them for me!
As photographed above, red, crimson, or burgundy patent leather is the perfect pop of color an all-black ensemble. I love the block heel this pair from Zara because it makes it sooo much easier to strut through the Chelsea cobblestone.
As seen on the Yves Saint Laurent fall 2017 runway as well as “Kinky Boots” on the Broadway stage, give your #OOTN something extra with some radiance. Why limit to a basic glittery pump when you can be extra and make it a boot?
Everytime I see these, I get flashbacks of my college dance-line days. From the football field to the go-go stage, one can’t help but feel sassy and ready to move in the all-white boot. I am beyond obsessed with how these designers gave this 1960s dancer staple a 2017 update.
Making an encore from last year’s shoe hype, the Over-the-Knee boot is back! Take a step back from the over-done suede and opt for metallics, velvets, patent leather, or plastic.
Believe it or not, some of the roughest, sturdiest shoes are best for walking around the Concrete Jungle. I love adding an edge to a lace dress or a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans.
