I’m the sort of girl who ends up on trend by accident. More than often – the things I imagine in my head that I’d love to be wearing don’t exist in stores yet. I think I’ve more or less always been attracted to the same type of shoes. It did take me awhile to warm up to wedges – and now I’m pretty obsessed.
In the spirit of trends – and the start of October (how did that happen?) – let’s take a look at what shoes are trending for fall. Some I’m in love with – while others I’m a bit skeptical. Tell me what you think! Word for the wise – this is not a bargain post, so for the pairs with out of this world price tags – just think of them as inspiration.
First trend! Embellished heels. As a whole – I’m down. Within certain boundaries. Check out a variety of options below.

2nd on the list. Lace Ups. I’m not too sure how this trend fits for fall – considering the amount of “sandals” I’ve been finding – maybe we’ll consider it “transitional.”

Now for most likely my favorite trend I’ll be showing – Cap Toed Shoes. If I owned any – they would be this week’s IRL shoe. Sadly – I don’t. So I’ll be using my imagination with all of you.
