The re-souL team is constantly coveting the beautiful shoes in the shop. As you can imagine, when the seasons’ change and new shoes start to roll in we can get quite giddy. It almost feels like Christmas opening the boxes with anticipation! With Spring in full swing and summer upon us, we’re obviously coveting the new collections, but which are our favorites? These are the styles that get us excited about selling shoes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the biggest spring trends this season is the idea of a monochrome wardrobe. Having an edited down wardrobe makes it way easier to get dressed in the morning. We all lead busy lives and having a “uniform” of sorts in your closet makes it one less thing to worry about when getting dressed for the day.
This by all means doesn’t mean boring. You can still play with pattern and add accessories to add some flair to your look. Black, white, cream and shades of grey look great on most, so having shoes that coordinate with your minimal palette is essential.
Spring is fickle, it can feel like all four seasons in a day. Therefore, layering is the key to helping get through those months of manic weather. Same goes for these oxfords. Wear them with socks to ward off the chill, wear them without when the sun is shining brightly.
We’re especially loving light pale colors such as blush, peach, nude, beige and silver. They are easy to wear if you think of them as an alternative to your winter black or brown. Neutral shoes look great with denim, pastel colors, shades of khaki, grey and camel as well as white.

This Monday I was musing about our recent trip last week to New York. It was cold, dark and at times downright frigid outside. But, I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from the Big Apple. While we did go to attend a trade show and visit some showrooms, we mostly went to spend time in the city and have some fun with our son. It was his birthday week and he had never been to New York, so it was the perfect excuse to take him with us and spend some quality family time too.
I am the worst at taking pictures when there is no proper lighting. Plus, I was having so much fun with the fam that half the time I would forget to take pictures. But I did manage to take a few snapshots with my iPhone. It looks like I spent most of my time looking up or looking down.
Other than visiting with friends and eating great food, the highlights for me were the American Museum of Natural History, the Matisse Shapes Exhibit at MOMA and attending a Broadway show.
What do you like to do when you visit New York? Thank you as always for stopping by our little blog. Have a great week! xo ~ Maggie
