To show or not to show, that is the question. What the heck are you talking about, you may say. Well, we are talking about your socks of course! The trend these days is to show some skin, some ankle skin to be exact. We know that this is fine in milder climates, but some of you live in areas that are just plain frigid. So we think you can show some cool socks too. Here are some examples of how we would wear our shoes from the shop with or “without” hosiery.
First up the ever popular ankle boot. Everybody has a pair, right? We would wear these P. Monjo boots with no-show-socks if we were wearing a midi length dress or skirt. With a pair of jeans, we would flash these fancy crane crews.
We love a good oxford around here! We think it’s perfectly acceptable to pretend we are wearing no socks as well as to show off some really cute designed ones too.
Tall boots. Totally okay to not show your socks obviously, but we also think it’s super cute when they peek out the cuff too.
These are just a few samples of what we have at re-souL. To see more of our shoe and sock collections, visit us in Ballard or shop on-line at resoul.com.
The kids are back in school and the weather is slowly changing. It’s time for another “What to Wear Wednesday”. The color brown is the new neutral of the season. Don’t worry, black is not going anywhere. But, it’s been awhile since we have seen brown on our feet as a fashion color so, we thought we would show you some examples of how we would wear this versatile shade.
Faux fur in every style and color is the coat of the season. We would wear this “teddy bear” coat with these two-tone ankle boots from Ernesto Dolani. They’re borrowed from the boys, yet slightly feminine with its chunky heel.
If you haven’t already noticed. Plaid everything is also the trend when it comes to prints. Besides wearing these oxfords with pants, we would gladly wear them with tights and a dress. Moma’s wingtip design and rich coffee color make them the perfect match for an outfit like this.
We are diggin all the spicy tone colors in ready to wear for this season. We love pumpkin, rust, mustard, ochre and olive greens. Best neutral to go with? Brown of course! We would wear these dark chocolate beauties from Ernesto Dolani with everything!
So the question is, are you ready for Fall? Thanks for stopping by the blog and we hope to see you in the shop! All styles available in-store and on-line. To see more Fall goodness head over to our website ~ resoul.com
Hello, it’s been a while since we posted anything on the blog. We have been receiving a few early Fall arrivals. So in the spirit of getting ready for the change of seasons, we thought we would show you how we would wear our favorite boot, the Chelsea Boot! A classic style that can be worn with virtually everything. Versatile and comfortable!
A big trend for this season is animal prints. These Officine Creative boots would look great with a pair of kick flare jeans and a long cheetah/leopard print vest.
Another fun Fall trend is mixing plaids and checks together. These Fiorentini and Baker boots are perfect for this casual look. Wear them with your favorite denim and plaid shirt.
A leather dress is a must for the dressier side of creative work attire. Wear these fancy MOMA boots with tights and an oversized sweater to top off the look.
What do you think? Are you ready for Fall yet? Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you at re-souL soon!
Need a little inspiration for the weekend? We just received our summer sandal collection into the shop and we can’t wait to start wearing these sandals 24/7. Scroll through to see how we would style them. Comfy, casual and effortless goes a long way in our opinion.
When you don’t want to give up your Birkenstocks, but need to step-up your style game. Casually cool.
When you want to make a statement with color. Red is the answer. But, purple, yellow, and orange will do just fine too. (See all colors here.)
The sandal to travel with when you are on vacation or to wear around town when you feel like you are on one. Staycation, anyone?
Hello! It’s time for another edition of What to Wear Wednesday. This week we are enjoying the warmer Spring weather in the PNW. We thought it would be fun to show you how to wear mules. A mule is a closed-toe open-heel shoe that comes in different heel heights. We love them as an alternative to wearing a sandal.
What is more comfortable than wearing a pair of broken-in jeans? Wearing them with a mule! A mule is a good way to be comfortable but still look polished enough for a casual day at work or going out in the evening. We like the way this Halmanera pointed toe style looks with a tapered jean. These would also look fantastic with a pair of black kick-crop pants as well.
So you feel like wearing shorts but sneakers and sandals feel too casual for streetwear or a casual work environment. This silver moccasin style mule looks as smart as wearing a loafer, but is as comfortable as a slipper. We like the metallic silver because metallics are a great neutral as an alternative to basic black or brown. Wear these with everything!
We love the look of mules so much, that we designed and developed our own style. Our Madora style comes in 5 colors. We like the way this re-souL collection version looks with skirts and dresses. The cut of the vamp in a deep-V, makes your legs look longer. Bonus! These would also look amazing with wide-leg crop pants too.
So hopefully we have inspired you to try out wearing mules. What do you think? Which mule could work for you?
Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the week! ~ team re-souL
Who is ready for the change of seasons, and do we dare say, the rain? The fires in the PNW have made our skies smokey and we are ready for a little rain to clean up our atmosphere in Seattle. As more collections arrive at the shop, we definitely have some favorite colors that are inspiring us for the Fall/Winter season. Here are just a few to get you in the mood.
Deep, rich, dark blue. An alternative to black and slightly less edgy. We love the shade of navy on this Officine Creative Chelsea boot. We would wear these with jeans or basic black leggings. They would also look wonderful with longer skirts and of course anything dark blue.
Dark espresso brown with a slight hue of cool gray is the best way to describe the color of this bag from Aunts and Uncles. The perfect carry-all that can convert itself from a handbag to a tote. We would carry this bag when we are wearing shades of olive green, gray or dark chocolate brown. Perfectly acceptable with black too.
Fresh and cool, deep greens are another favorite here at re-souL. Green is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray, black and wine. These oxfords by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.
