The Golden Globes did NOT disappoint this year! I usually avoid award shows because they always seem to carry the same theme, same winners, same blah, blah, blah. But this year I thought I'd tune in, because well, #TimesUp. With that in mind, let's chat about what I love most: (other than Oprah's speech right now) shoes!!! A lot of ladies wore long dresses, so it was really hard to catch a glimpse, but here are a few I did notice and loved!

At this point you know I love black, so I LOVED this blackout! But aside from that, it was truly standing in solidarity that made the biggest impact!
We're a week in to 2018 (a year that I plan on conquering), and we're still hanging onto the 2017 trends. If you're as observant and in tune with fashion as I am, then be on the lookout for these shoe trends this year, whether we like them or not ;)
I love a shoe that makes an impact, since I always only wear neutrals. It's only right that bold colors will lead the way this year. I'm talking hues like bright reds, pinks, yellows, and oranges. Just in time for the warm weather! (That is, if mother nature chooses to make it warm anytime soon...)
You thought we'd leave plastics last year? Guess again. From thigh-highs to sandals, designers cannot seem to put it out. I think I might join in on the fantastic plastic trend this year. I may draw the line with clear sneakers though. Just can't see the point.
Speaking of sneakers (or kicks, your choice), they're taking a major trip into the unknown. I seriously wonder if this has anything to do with our current missile crisis... *insert thinking emoji here.* I will now plead the fifth on this trend.
I live in Houston, and cowboy boots are all over the place, but why Givenchy wants to refresh them is beyond me. I will now wait for my fellow fashion enthusiasts to "cop." (Major eye roll)
I'm so glad we're keep this one since they've grown on me! They went strong last year, and I'm sure they will only get cuter and more stylish this year!
Do I need to say much? Plaid was all over the F/W 2017 runways, and will continue to make their mark this year. I think they will lighten up during Spring and Summer.
You may want to try some of these, you may not want to. Just because these shoes might be seen everywhere, doesn't mean you need to get rid of what you already have. Fashion rotates, so keep your treasures!
Now that 2017 is coming to an end, I think it appropriate to take a look back at some of the best (in my opinion) shoe trends for the year!
If you watched my fall trends Youtube video, I talked about how statement heels were a major thing during the fall. Truth is, they were a major trend all year round, and I think should continue into 2018. I love this trend so much, because it gives an added to touch to the heel, which is often ignored. Here a few examples off the runway.
Mules were all over the place. With faux fur, with a heel, or as a flat, it's safe to say this was a popular one.
Metallics, Jewels, and Glitter
This was a fun trend that will continue on, because how can you not like to make an impression? Shiny and sparkly things have never been a favorite, but this year I found myself drooling over some bright shoes. (Actual 2018 goal is to add more sparkle to my shoe-drobe).
Sling backs are classics, and although always popular, they made a huge comeback this year. Dior and Chanel made the biggest statement with there ever so popular classics.
So we left heels over 5 inches in 2016, and opted for a more realistic height in 2017. I will confess, this one wasn't my favorite, but it grew on me! This needs to join us in 2018!
2017 was so good to us when it came to shoes. There are some trends I left out (like red shoes, sock boots, and all white shoes) but these were ones I really wanted to mention. I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store!! Which ones will you carry into the new year?
