Our Favorite Colors for Fall

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.

5 Rad Gift Ideas for Dad

 

With Father’s Day around the corner, we thought we would suggest some ideas that dad will be sure to appreciate. Okay, technically it’s more than 5 gifts, but we’re not counting. We have too many apropos things not to include on this list. Besides, dad never buys anything for himself so you should do it for him. Because what father really needs another coffee mug or silly tie anyway? Do dads still wear ties?

What to Wear Wednesday: How to wear Summer Plaid

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. 

 

What to Wear with Plaid

What to Wear with Summer Plaid

Our weather in Seattle tends to be sort of unpredictable to say the least, especially this time of year. So for this week’s WDIWW,  we thought we would focus on different ways to wear plaid. Part punk rock, part grunge, part country it’s an easy, casual trend to wear that can be easily adapted into a summer wardrobe. The key to making it casually cool is to pair them with warm neutral shoes and accessories. On not so sunny days pair them with jeans and and booties or some buttery soft oxfords. For the warm weather days wear a pretty plaid dress with a pair of tan low heel sandals. So tap into the Pacific Northwest vibe and try wearing some plaid this summer.
