Autumn is my favorite season! I grew up in Boston where fall foliage is a BIG DEAL.

It’s truly magical and it's Fashion to Frolic in the Foliage time.

I love shoes. I have always been a shoe person. My blog is even named On My Shoebox. But sneakers aren’t really my thing. I’m not athletic and I feel much more comfortable in a pair of stilettos than I do sporting runners. You may have seen the popular Preachers and Sneakers account on Instagram (@preachersnsneakers). It roasts famous pastors and worship leaders for their choice of high-end (and high-priced) sneakers. But is this a new thing? Are sneakers having a moment in popular culture?

I was standing outside the FC gym last week, waiting for my 8th grader to exchange his backpack for his tennis uniform and racquet before their first co-ed junior high tennis match.Beautiful and athletic Trinity Cox, my son’s classmate, saw me as she waited to leave for her softball game.

As I was reviewing the spring shows to cull the season’s latest trends for you, I realized a couple of things. First, there’s nothing really new under the sun. Most of the themes on the runways weren’t earth-shatteringly innovative. Many of the looks are either recycled trends that pop up every few years or are modernized takes on decades-old patterns and accessories.

In each of these instances, I complied. Surprisingly, I happen to like rules. I like order. I like things going the way they’re supposed to. Do I love being told how to dress? Not necessarily. But usually, there is a reason for the regulation.

But it must be doing well if they’re opening a second location.
