Welcome to my first Fearless Friday post. I will be posting about a trend, clothing piece, or action that is outside my comfort zone, or something I wouldn't normally try. I wanted this blog to not only help other women get inspired but also to be a growing experience for me. We must be able to step outside our comfort zones if we are to see any change in our lives, the lives of others, the world.
I'll be honest, my first reaction to hearing that mules were hot this season was "ick!" So I decided I had to try them for a fearless friday post. I shopped around, looking for inspiration, and was pleasantly surprised to find so many tasteful choices. I finally settled on two styles. These heeled ones, with the cutest bow details and gold heels, as well as these embossed flat ones. I scored both during black Friday at over half off!
They arrived at my doorstep and I opened them with slight hesitation. My usual excitement for a new purchase was clouded by my prejudice against mules. (I just couldn't get the image of 90s style mules out of my head!) The styles now, however, are much more flattering and tasteful.
I loved each pair as soon as they came out of the box. Though I was slightly nervous at the thought of how they would stay on my feet, surely I'm not the only one? I decided to wear the flat ones around the house to break them in and get used to walking in them. Well, they were not difficult at all and were comfy from the start! I think it is safe to say I'm in love with this trend!
I styled these embroidered ones with an oversized seater, raw hem skinnies, and a leather backpack for a laid back vibe. I am loooooving the uneven raw hem trend. it is so... cool! And they are a great way to draw more attention to the shoes. I'm telling you, it works! The contrast draws the eyes right to the shoes. I found this particular pair at JC Penny and they are surprisingly comfy and flattering. The fit is perfect and I love them. They are far more affordable than name brand jeans and they were having a buy one get one for a penny so you can bet I bought two pairs!
What do you think of the mules trend? Are there any trends you'd like to see me try?
Stay tuned to see how I styled the heeled ones! And you can look for these Fearless Friday posts once a month. Let's challenge and encourage each other, even in the small things!
Don't be afraid to try a new trend! The worst that happens is you hate it. The best that happens, you find something new to love!
Mules are a great trend to hop on board with! You can find so many different styles of mules, from comfy to casual to dressy. All are great options and a great statement piece to add to your look. Flat ones like the ones I styled here also make great house shoes! They are easy to slip on and comfortable enough to wear around the house!
