Three Spring Fashion Trends That Never Go Out of Style

Ah, the promise of Spring. Warmer days, lighter layers, softer colors. These new key styles that we just have received into the shop have us wishing for balmier, weather now! We picked three top clothing trends that we would consider our “uniform” for spring and summer. Colors and materials that never go out of style are paired up with our favorite P.Monjo sandals.

Spring Trends All White

You wear all black in the winter so, why not wear all white in the Spring? This peep-toe slide in creamy shades of white would be perfect with wide leg pants and fuller skirts and cotton dresses. Easy and breezy all season long.

Spring Trend Chambray and Fisherman Sandals

We love wearing our jeans, right? Chambray is the spring kissing cousin to fall and winter denim. This updated fisherman in a mid-tone brown, will add the finishing touch to these lighter hues of indigo. Wear these sandals with shorts, skirts or dresses. They make a good counterpoint to the feminine details of the ruffles in skirts and tops.

Spring Trend Classic Khaki

Khaki has been a staple for Spring for as long as we can remember. Who doesn’t love a classic trench coat or the comfort of cotton twill pants? These sandals would be the finishing touch to your casual work day attire. But also feminine enough to wear with tailored skirts and dresses too.

So, what do you think? Time to add a fresh new shoe to your own spring uniform?

Brown is Back!

With the weather changing and the rain coming back, we are starting to get in the mood for Fall shoes. After a couple of seasons of black and gray, it’s nice to see some rich shades of brown in the shop like tan/camel, russet, and dark chocolate.

Brown is Back : Tan Tilda clog by re-souL

Our re-souL clog “Tilda” is the perfect light color brown for transitioning into Fall. We would wear these with denim and our favorite skirts and dresses. When it gets a bit cooler we would wear these with some fun patterned socks.

Brown is Back : P. Monjo P-982 Cuff Boot

We love the richness of this russet brown boot by P.Monjo. A brown shade with a hint of red, we would wear these boots with our favorite cable tights and midi-skirts. This color is also very complimentary to navy, burgundy and burnt orange.

Brown is Back : MOMA chelsea boot in Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate brown is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray and taupe. These Chelsea boots by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.

Yup, today we are 14 years old. That’s how long re-souL has been in business. No fancy party, no special event. We just want to take a moment to thank you, to acknowledge you for helping us along the way. We love what we do but without you, our dear customers, we wouldn’t be in business today.

Shoe Mood: Dusty Pink and Gray

Happy Friday! Today’s shoe mood board was inspired by the colors of the new Primaforma sneakers we just got in. These court shoes are super sleek, very comfortable and fit great! We fell in love with the combination of dusty pink and charcoal gray together. Both hues are good for transitioning into the Fall season don’t you think?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Summer Daze

More summer and less Monday I say! Because we have had more June gloom in July this year than ever before (well, at least it seems like it), I am craving warmer weather to enjoy the beauty that our area has to offer. As a former Californian, my summer daze in PNW is quite different than my summers at the beach. Here are some images that capture what a now Washingtonian looks forward to in the dog days of summer.

Satorisan Soumei

We have a new line in the shop here at re-souL, it’s called Satorisan. We are all smitten with this new Spring collection and inspired by the travels we would take wearing our shoes that are oh so comfortable.

Satorisan is an international lifestyle brand whose attitude is grounded in balance and harmony, honesty and respect, quality and comfort, love and caring. Developed in Valencia, Spain and produced in Vietnam, Satorisan is into “live by the walk”. They believe if your feet are happy, the rest of you will be happy too.

Satorisan Jasmine Green Soles

Green Jasmine soles by Satorisan.

Their signature green sole is a special compound similar to that used in competition car tires, which increases the traction properties on dry or wet conditions.

The leathers are sourced in Spain and the canvas fabric is milled in Italy. The international collaboration of designers and manufacturers produce an unbeatably comfortable product. We like the way they look and feel, and we hope you will too.

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Fashion Illustration

On a recent buying trip to Milan, I stopped at the Triennale di Milano and took in an exhibition called the “The New Vocabulary of Italian Fashion”. (If you would like to see what this show was about, click here.) I was inspired by the Italian fashion illustrations on display. Which of course led me to go find these artists and see what other things they might be doing. Here are three that I loved the most from the exhibit and samples of their other work.
