When it comes to fashion and style, I like to think that my style stands out a little bit above the rest. I mean what's not to like about my unique perspective on style (lol)? It's an expression of me, which it should be. That's why I tread lightly when it comes to trends. And if more than 3 or 4 style influencers I follow on social is wearing something I've been eyeing, I won't even attempt it (unless I just can't resist). It's the petty in me - wink, wink.
Also, if I'm being honest, I love walking into a room and seeing people look me up and down because my outfit is so unique. The goal is always to stand out in the crowd, not blend in. This is probably why thrifting will always be my first go-to when it comes to stand out wardrobe pieces. Plus, I won't have to worry about ending up at some event with the same thing on that so-and-so has on.
A few weeks ago, I asked the poll question on my insta-stories if anybody else besides me were a fan of the kitten heel. By a land slide, the majority of responses was Heck No! I can't say that I was shocked. I mean the kitten heel for years has been considered old fashion and the shoe your grandmother wore on special occasions. But the kitten heel trend has come back strong (or has it?)
Like most people, I wasn't always a lover of the kitten heel, especially if you're talking about the style of the shoe back in the day. However, the different style of these two inch heeled shoes now-a-days makes me giddy on the inside. Take today's footwork for instance. This little heeled shoe is making a huge statement with the ruffled detailing on the top. I love that it adds just the right amount of pizazz to this look and they are comfortable.
One thing I will say is, you have to be careful how you style it. If styled the wrong way your look can quickly go down hill. My first time wearing these cuties, I decided this faux leather pleated skirt from Shein was the way to go. I opted for a mix print black and white combo with the polka dot shirt and striped blazer. The polka dot socks were added because I'm just extra.
I hope to be able to wear these kitten booties again before springtime weather kicks in full time. What are your thoughts on the kitten heel trend? Drop a line in the comments and tell me if you're a fan or not. I've also provided shopping links to a few other kitten heel options to wear during the spring/summer months.
