Hi there! It’s time for another edition of “What to Wear Wednesday”. Since ankle boots are here to stay, we thought we would look at 3 distinctive styles and how we would wear them. We know the days don’t quite feel autumnal yet, but it will be here sooner than you know it. Whether you want to go more casual or more polished, we have some examples that are sure to fit into your personal style for this Fall.
As an every day, walk around town, kind of boot, we like the classic flat lace-up boot. These are versatile enough to wear with everything. Especially if you are a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. We would wear these with our skinny jeans and a comfy sweater. But feel free to wear them with longer skirts and shorter dresses too.
Sometimes getting around during the day is much easier when you are not teetering on a high skinny heel. You can be perfectly comfortable walking to the bus, on your way to work, while still looking pulled together. Besides, blocky mid heels are totally on point and on trend these days. Although these would work with skinny jeans too, we think to style them with a skirt is a fantastic option to your basic pump. When the days become crisp, add some opaque tights and you are good to go for the cooler months ahead.
Everybody has a black ankle boot in their wardrobe, right? We love the clean simple lines of these tall heel ankle boots but, it’s all about that green color! These would look amazing with dresses and skirts. We, however, like these forest beauties with wide leg trousers. Add a turtleneck top to balance the look of the pant leg and viola, you have an instantly chic outfit.
What’s your favorite way to wear ankle boots? We’d love to know. For more ankle boot options shop with us at resoul.com.

With all the new autumn arrivals coming into the shop, I am suddenly in the mood for fall clothes! Because it is still warm and not really sweater weather yet, I am drawn to pieces that I could wear today yet easily transition into colder weather later. Here are my top 5 favorite trends to try wearing now (and also when it gets a little more chilly outside).
For this week’s What-do-I-Wear-Wednesday, we thought it would be fun to show some styling suggestions with the help of our friends, Cat, Chika and Amanda over at shopvelouria.com. Velouria is a beautifully curated shop in Ballard specializing in lovely, small production, independently-made clothing, jewelry and accessories. Chika and Cat enjoy creating meaningful relationships with their talented designers from the Pacific Northwest and we are so fortunate to have them as neighbors.
Velouria was recently featured in a blog post from Seattle’s Poplin Style and had borrowed some shoes from re-souL to style with their clothing. Since we just launched our very own re-souL collection, we thought it would be a great opportunity to show you some fantastic apparel suggestions on how to wear our new spring shoes!
re-souL is proud to present Thorocraft footwear for men. Founded in California in 2009, this company blends interesting modern materials and advanced footwear technology with traditional bench style craftmanship. For example, Thorocraft utilizes laser cutting technology to precision cut a perforated detail as shown in the style Mercer below. For their sneakers the footbeds are lined with soft pigskin and utilize premium breathable latex foam for soft cushioning. The outsole is crafted from their genuine rubber compound which provides excellent flexibility and comfort. We love the mix of materials; leather, suede, raffia and ponyhair which turn an ordinary oxford or sneaker into something truly unique.
Quality and construction are just as important as style. Thorocraft hand selects high grade materials that will gain the unique character of the person who wears it and only look better over time. Upon the completion of each shoe, each pair is thoroughly inspected and only after meeting their construction requirements, the heel rivet is added to their shoes as a seal of approval.
Last Saturday night we had a party to celebrate the launch of our new shoe brand; re-souL! It was a fun evening of munchies, bubbly, lively conversation and of course shoes!
A special thanks to Pete’s Perfect Toffee, Portalis and Bastille for catering our event! A most sincere thank you to everyone who came to the party to help us launch this new endeavor. We could not do it without you and we are so grateful for your continued support!
