What to Wear Wednesday with Mellicia Marx from Poplin Style

On Wednesdays, we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we handed the styling reigns over to Mellicia Marx of Poplin Style Direction.

Mellicia is a personal stylist who helps individuals look their best through easy, friendly, no-pressure styling. She can help you buy a new wardrobe, or edit what you currently own, or both. She’ll even go thrift shopping with you! So naturally we were thrilled for her to style her favorite boot from the re-souL collection. You may have seen our Iris boot in last week’s post. But, you can never have too much of a good thing, right? Plus, we love Mellicia’s styling, so without further ado, take it away Mellicia!

re-souL Iris Bronze Metallic Boot

 

It used to be that the cool kids wore silver, never gold. Then, something changed. Now, it’s all gold all the time. There was also a day when a classic black boot was your go-to. That time has passed. Now, it’s all about the unexpected. Whether you opt for a neutral, like green or blue, or try a surprising heel, it’s time to dive into a statement boot that is shockingly practical. For me that boot is metallic and the Iris from the re-souL collection is just right. The color is more subdued, which is just right when you are searching for something cool and not overly flashy. Of course, it’s crazy functional for walking up and down the hills of Seattle. So, it’s clear you need this boot. Now, how to style it?

I’m all about embracing your personal style and ensuring that your clothes communicate who you are. So, let’s begin with your very own Iris boots in bronze. Feel free to layer a leather jacket over top with any of these options or wear them sans cover-up.

 

1. With a compelling casual dress. I like neutrals with metallics and this cozy option is edgy and functional. Layer it up with leather leggings or distressed jeans or try it solo.

2. With a super feminine dress. There’s nothing like the balance of hard and soft. A girly piece paired with sturdy, hip boots is a timeless approach. Elevate the look with metallic boots instead of black and feel your fashion-forward self come through.

3. With a long vest. A great strategy to simplify your life is to find boots that work well with a specific coat or vest. That way you can finish off every outfit effortlessly. Even the most basic of outfits is much more stylish with the right shoes and outerwear. If you find styling vests challenging, feel free to check out my post on the subject.

WTWW: 3 Different Ways to Wear Midi Skirts

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we focus on three different Kupuri styles to wear with midi skirts.  

We just received a new collection of spring shoes from Kupuri. The styles are fresh and feminine. Midi skirts over the last few seasons have gone from runway fashion to a staple in our spring and summer wardrobes. So, we thought it would be fun to show different styles of shoes you can wear with this on-trend skirt length.

What to wear with Kupuri T-strap Sandals

The most flattering and ladylike way to wear a full mid-length skirt is with a heel. We really like this t-strap with its neutral color straps, blocky heel, and comfy platform. Wear these when you want to channel your inner femme fatal.

WTWW: Coclico “Ziggy” Sandal

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. 

WTWW Coclico Ziggy Sandal
Oh Spring, won’t you please get here soon? That way we can start to wear shoes like this stunning bootie/sandal from Coclico! We think it’s the perfect style to wear with warmer weather pieces such as culottes, midi dresses and jumpsuits. But they would equally look as fab with your slouchy jeans too. Now, if it only would stop raining. Sigh.

WTWW ~ MOMA Fisherman Sandal

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers.  Well, the weather might not be “spring like” but our early spring arrivals are starting to show up in the shop. We immediately fell in love with this modern version of a fisherman sandal by MOMA. The closed toe and heel make it approriate enough for work, but still have the feel of a summer sandal. Here are 3 examples of how to incorporate this shoe into your wardrobe. MOMA 44504 Fisherman Sandal Look 1   Wider trousers are making a comeback. These shoes are perfect for this look, they have enough weight to balance out the width of the culottes but still look very feminine. MOMA 44504 Fisherman Sandal Look 2   Although these would work well with your skinny jeans too, we really like the look of a boyfriend style jean for your casual days. Cuff up your pant legs to show off your ankles and the cute sandal too. MOMA 44504 Fisherman Sandal Look 3   Although, you might not think to pair these with a dress, we like the look these bring to a simple shirt dress. As long as your dress has some tailored elements, this fisherman style will compliment it well. These shoes would also work with  a simple linen sack dress or midi skirt too.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!

re-souL buffy boot

 

 

I’ve always been a fan of green and blue shoes. They behave as neutrals when it comes to fashion. As long as the intensity of the color works with the rest of the hues in your outfit, you are good to go. After all, the stem never clashes with the flower and the sky complements everything. So, when I discovered that Maggie had chosen to include blue and green boots in the fall re-souL collection, I was thrilled. And, let’s face it, shorter boots are right on trend.

When I was offered the chance to offer up my suggestions for, “What to Wear Wednesday, ” I quickly discovered how effortlessly the pieces in the shop work together. So, I started with accessories that I love together, then set out to find clothes to complete the look. In fact, when creating outfits, I often suggest the clients start with one piece and work from there. For me, I tend to start with the shoes.
For the woman who wants to look chic and put-together, this dress brings it all together. Looking to inspire confidence in others? A winter white coat does that better than anything. Because the boots are luxurious and have a reasonable heel, the boots keep it all effortless and functional.Too fancy? A pair of skinny jeans and a basic tee work just as well with this foursome of goodness from re-souL.

re-souL Elaine tassle moc

We recently introduced our women’s re-souL collection for FW14. We thought it would be fun to show the different ways you can wear our tassle-moc “Elaine”. We featured this loafer in our fall lookbook. A tailored flat that can be worn with almost anything. We like wearing them casually with a pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans or slightly dressy with a pleated midi skirt. Top off this look with a classic trench or an oversized cardigan and you’re all set! Any easy pulled together polished outfit in no time flat!
