There’s a quote floating around the internet that says - “Chase your dreams… in high heels of course.” Girl please, from now on, I’m chasing my dreams in comfortable shoes.
It seems that within the few months leading up to my 40th birthday last year my desire to wear heels has dwindled drastically. Strangely enough I can’t even tell you why. What’s funny is that growing up I was a tomboy and avoided heels like the plague. Then one day I was all girly and heels were my bestie. Now-a-days I rarely wear them.
Pairing sneakers with dresses, skirts or suits is all the rave now, although it’s not a trend that hasn’t been seen before. However wearing the right sneakers can definitely make a statement. In fact, Serena Williams worn sneakers to the Met Gala and I don’t blame her. It’s just proof that comfort and style can go hand in hand.
I won’t go as far as to say that sneakers are the new heels, but if the shoe fits (is that lame or what). While I’m not trying to turn you into a sneakerhead, having a pair or two of stylish and fashionable sneakers is worth it and your feet will thank you. So the next time you get dressed, think about giving your look a different vibe by featuring a cute sneaker.
