WTWW: How to Wear a Peep-Toe Bootie

Today we are looking at ways to wear a peep-toe ankle boot. When the weather is warming¬†up, but it’s not quite warm enough to ditch your boots, may we suggest this little number from Coclico? Part sandal, part boot, let us show you how we would wear this versatile style.

We would wear this bootie with a long chemise. If you like to wear simple shapes, this black bootie would complement your skirts and frocks nicely. The modern lines anchor the drape of this dress and give the overall look a more modern flair.

Pant silhouettes have been changing a bit as of late. We have been talking about culottes for several seasons, and it looks like the fuller pant leg is here to stay. We would wear these booties with loose fit trousers and casual linen pants.

Want to update your sweater+jeans routine? Sometimes just a new pair of shoes can bring new life to your personal daily uniform. We like the way these would look with skinny black jeans and a simple pull-over knit top.

So how would you wear these spring peep-toe¬†booties? We’d love to hear from you!

Spring Trend: Culottes & Clogs

Culottes and clogs. Yes, that’s what we said. The two go together like an artisan loaf of bread and an Irish¬†creamy butter. Both very good on their own of course but, oh together, even better! Culottes have become a fashion basic in the last couple of seasons and a great way to wear them is with clogs. Clogs give you the right height and heft you need to balance out the wideness of the pant leg.

Clogs & Culottes: Coclico

These Coclico wedge clogs are modern and sleek with their color tonalities and textures. We would wear them with something simple and layered to achieve a more sophisticated look in our outfit.

Clogs & Culottes: Taddeucci

We love the look of these Giulia Taddeucci clogs with the wood bottoms stained black and the glossy leather uppers. They almost look like a piece of modern furniture. We would wear these with our favorite black culottes and a crisp white poplin shirt. Clogs & Culottes: Kupuri

We adore the 70’s vintage vibe of these Kupuri clog sandals. The perfect neutral color to wear with most of your summer casuals, stripes, and denim.

So what do you think? Ready to give culottes and clogs a try? You’ll look fabulous we promise.

Spring Trend: Monochrome

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.

WTWW: How to Wear Spring Chelsea Boots

This post is an update to a previous post we did on Chelsea boots a little over a year ago. After all, they are still an easy ankle boot to wear going into the early spring season. We just got a new one in the shop from P.Monjo in a beautiful shade of grey with a slight green cast. They are gorgeous! So we thought we would take another look at this classic style and see how we would wear them today.

What to wear with Chelsea Boots: P. Monjo

These boots will up your game when you pair them with your favorite “athleisure” pants: the legging. You can be comfy in your oversized sweater and stretchy pants and still look pulled together. Yay for comfort+style.

What to wear with Chelsea Boots: P. Monjo

Not quite warm enough yet to wear sandals, but you can wear a Chelsea boot with cropped boyfriend style jeans. Pull on a tunic top or dress with a classic trench and you are good to go! Easy, breezy, beautiful, well you know what I mean.

Who says ankle boots are only for pants? Not us! We think you can¬†rock them with¬†dress or a skirt too. It’s all about proportions. We like the way they look with the longer hemlines. Also, way easier on your tootsies than stilettos.

What do I Wear with: the shoes from the re-souL collection?

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!

So what do you think? Love to see more? Click here to check out more from Velouria and here to visit re-souL..

the re-souL “misha”

We just recently¬†launched our new re-souL shoe collection for women. It’s a big step for us to launch our own brand and yet to us, it seems like a natural progression. Over the past 12 years in our shop, we are honored¬†to have met countless customers and friends and we have a pretty good feel for¬†their look and their style. Recently, in our travels to the marketplace and to trade shows, we have these customers in mind and it just felt like their needs are not being met by the usual brands. So it makes sense to us, with our background in shoe design, to take it to the next level and design our own collection.

Our shoes are very much styled after specific people that we know and love. Everyday basics, stylish and comfortable, they¬†are up-to-date and available in colors because that’s what she wants to see. For the next few weeks¬†we will regularly feature a shoe from the new re-souL collection. We’ll portray a¬†personality of someone we know that inspired the design of the shoe.

The Misha shoe is most definitely inspired by our friend Misha. She is the designer/wizard behind Turquoise Creative, a design studio that sells fine paper art and stationery. This petite powerhouse is the friendliest extrovert you will ever meet. When she’s not designing, Misha can be found working on “the house” with her husband Ben, running after her two young sons or enjoying the urban life with her eclectic mix of friends.¬†Her taste is definitely feminine and she never leaves home without mascara or anything less than a one inch heel. She loves a perfect French croissant, clear sunny skies and spring flowers. Misha always prefers a dress instead of pants, her style is vivid¬†and her wardrobe is filled with colorful scarfs and very special accessories. Her namesake shoe was designed for the fashionable gal who is never afraid to be too dressed up, regardless of the occassion.

What do I Wear with: Kupuri “Serraje” Sandal

Each Wednesday we‚Äôll answer the ongoing question: ‚ÄúWhat do I wear with these?‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we feature the Kupuri “Serraje” sandal.¬†

 

What to Wear With Kupuri Copper Sandal

 

 

Happy Wednesday everybody! Today we are featuring this gorgeous dress sandal by Kupuri. We love the architectural elements of copper, wood and leather suede. Metallics have grown in popularity as of late on the runways and in home interiors. We like them because they are very neutral and can be worn with anything. Whether you are dressing for day or evening, pair these sandals with your black staples such as a simple skirt or slouchy black pants for an extra punch to your over all black. Complete the look by adding some copper, rose gold or wood accessories to your outfit.
