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.

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.

What to Wear with H by Hudson "Horrigan"
Is it okay to wear black with brown? Yes! Black and brown shoes are super versatile and easy to wear. Just look at this style from H by Hudson. The sleek black leather boot with a tan leather wrap is a fun style to wear with jeans on the weekends.  Slouchy pants and a camel cable sweater work well also. Feel like wearing a dress?

Mondays, Maggie Muses: The Art of Layers

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL.   I like to “muse” about things that inspire me.  Especially on Mondays.

Maybe it’s our Seattle climate, but it seems we tend to like our layers in clothing.  It may not seem like a big thing, but here in the winter it could be relatively mild and sunny one day, damp and foggy the next. Or better yet, if the temperature drops, the infamous drizzle could turn into snowflakes.  And that’s just in one day. But seriously, it’s no wonder we like our layers. We have to be prepared for the weather to change in a blink of an eye.  So how do you layer without looking like a schlepp? Here are some inspiring pictures of some lovely ladies that know how to do layering with style.
