Cowboy boots are not normally something I would have considered to be a fashion trend, but designers such as Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, and many others have created some unique and embellished styles in this season.

For a more modern take on the cowboy boots, pair ’em with a maxi skirt for a bohemian vibe, or with a motorcycle jacket for a more urban look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Miu Miu

Miu Miu’s glitter-emblazoned pumps made headlines after their retro-inspired runway debut for Fall/Winter 2015-16 at Paris Fashion Week.  Their block heel is on-trend for this season, and the baby blue details and cartoon-sized button add the perfect eccentricity to what could very easily become blah.  Pair these heels with a pair of flared, dark denim trousers & a fitted turtleneck, or with a shift dress and a contrasting, candy-colored jacket.
