Shoe Mood: Bordeaux, Green & Pewter

With the winter months around the corner, and our wardrobes looking very neutral, (not that there is anything wrong with that of course!) we were¬†craving some deep rich colors in our closet. When putting together the fall buy,¬†we didn’t want to limit ourselves to the varietal shades of black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux re-souL flats

So with this in mind, we added some fall colors to our very own re-souL collection. Shades of burgundy, green, blue and a little bit of shine with neutrals of pewter and bronze.

The great thing about all of these hues and metallics is they go very well with all of those neutrals in your wardrobe! A punch of color to your basic black and grey.

So what do you think? Think you could break away from your basic black shoe for a new color or metallic instead?

Here are my top 5 favorite trends to try wearing now (and also when it gets a little more chilly outside).

Currently Coveting: MOMA 50404 Boot

MOMA 50404 Lace-up Boot

“This boot is incredibly fashionable with just a touch of grit.” – Torin

Since my first day at re-souL I have had a soft spot in my heart for MOMA. They’ve been the ones that always catch my eye and tempt me the most. From the way the leathers crease and fold, reminiscent of the topography of a map to the little marks and quirks of the hide that make each boot both unique and familiar. This is why I like MOMA and why I am currently coveting their 50404 lace-up boot.

Another aspect of the 50404 boot that has me coming back to it again and again is the look. This boot is incredibly fashionable with just a touch of grit. I’ve always loved dressing well but I hate being too dolled up. I like to throw in something rough or different with an outfit. The 50404 boot allows me to throw in that military blue collar look while still maintaining a put together appearance. Alternatively, I can wear them with a tee and blue jeans and have an effortless, stylish casual look. Joe Cool has his sunglasses and I have my boots.

Currently Coveting the MOMA 50404 Lace-up boot - Brown

Moma has always come across as more than just a shoe, it was clearly evident that the folks behind this brand had much more than shoes in mind when they develop their new styles for each season. These aren’t unskilled laborers sitting at an assembly line cranking out the same shoe or boot over and over again. These are artists; real craftsmen and women who are imbuing such an ordinary everyday thing with life and personality. For that, the knowledge that these boots are made with love and that they are going to be with me for years to come, that’s the real reason why I covet the MOMA 50404 lace-up boot..

Fall Trend Essential: The Ankle Boot

In seasons past, it had been all about the tall boot. Not this year! This Fall it’s all about the short ankle boot. ¬†Ankle boots have limitless versatility for a variety of different looks. ¬†Think of ankle boots as the alternative to a pump or a boot. They look fantastic with skirts and dresses which can be worn with tights and socks to keep you warm, and of course your skinny jeans too. ¬†Here are some looks pulled from our Pinterest boards that we hope will give you some inspiration to try them in your own wardrobe.

ANKLE BOOTS

Inspiration 1 :  For a dressed up casual style we like this boot from Coclico, the wedge gives you a bit of lift and would pair nicely with wooly socks for a modern layered look.

Inspiration 2 : ¬†A favorite because of its versatility, this boot from Officine Creative is smart and can go easily from day into evening. Great for the office during work hours and then switch out the sweater for a leather motorcycle jacket and you’re ready for a fun night out with friends.

Inspiration 3 : This dress would look fantastic with knit tights and our suede boot from AA Copenhagen.  A rich material but not too precious, these would look great as well with a pair of skinny cords.

Inspiration 4 :  How do you rock the slouchy pants?  Simple, wear them with this cute low bootie from Lili Mill.  They add a laid back effortless look without looking like you rolled out of bed in your sweats.
