The Chunky Shoe Trend: feat: FILA...

This post is sponsored by FILA and Her Campus Media. All opinions are my own.
Fall is here and I am busting out all the pumpkin things. I can finally pull out my sweaters, which I am ecstatic about, because I live for sweater weather. There is something magical and almost refreshing about fall. The weather starts to cool off and the leaves start to change. Can you tell I can't get enough of fall?

With every new season there are always the hot new trends that appear. Some we love, and some we hate. Since NYFW wasn't too long ago there were a few trends that seemed to be dominating the streets of New York. One being the "chunky shoe trend". I'll be honest, I wasn't a huge fan of what I saw. I saw blogger after blogger rocking chunky shoes never thinking I could pull it off myself. That was before I teamed up with FILA. 

I decided to team up with FILA and was actually surprised by how cute I thought their Disruptor 2 shoes were. They are very comfortable and I love that you can wear them with a casual outfit, when you're being sporty, or even a dress. I think I love pairing it with denim the most! Because of my body type I feel like I would need to wear these shoes with a dress or workout attire. I even worn these on a hike with my husband and my feet were in heaven the whole time.

It is such a cute sneaker than can be worn so diversely. You can put them on when you are running errands, going to work, or a night out with your husband. They even give me the "90's throw back" vibes! Don't you think? The Disruptor 2 not only comes in pink, but it also comes in white. But you all know me...I can't resist the chance to wear pink!

So what do you think? Do you love the chunky shoe trend??

Hello! I am so refreshed after that long Labor Day weekend. Colin and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary all weekend long and it was so fun to just spend all my time with him celebrating how much I love him. If you missed my post talking about our anniversary and giving 5 pieces of advice for any relationship, don't forget to take a look at it here.

We are already 4 days into September and I feel like I am running on full blown fall energy! It is my favorite season and I absolutely love everything to do with fall. It is starting to get cooler at night and the fall magic has definitely been in the air! I have been burning my pumpkin candles non-stop, I'm breaking out my fall decorations, and I have started wearing some light sweaters. Which makes me over the moon excited.

I love wearing sweaters during the fall and winter months. I am all about a good sweater, skinny jeans and boots for an everyday fall wardrobe!  I have absolutely loved that color block sweaters have been a huge hit for the upcoming fall season. So I wanted to share my favorite picks that I have in my cart. All of my favorite color block picks are under $100 and won't break the bank! (With a few solids incorporated as well.) Happy color blocking!
