WTWW: How to Wear Slides

Hi there! Warmer weather this week has us craving for the season’s “it” shoe style, the slide! For today’s “what to wear Wednesday”, we are going to show you how to wear different types of slides for different occasions.

wtww_officine_creative_slides_blackLet’s face it, we love our denim, don’t we? This easy black slide from Officine Creative works great with skinny jeans. It covers most of the foot, so it is appropriate enough for casual work environments or your days off when strolling around town. They definitely have that laid back cool look.

We love these low heel, pale pink suede beauties from Coclico. Wear them with some wide leg crop pants to add a modern flare to your outfit. The neutral soft color would work well with lightweight cotton or linen pants too. Also works well with most pastel colors.

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!

WTWW: How to Wear Shoe Boots

Hi there! Spring is not even here yet and we can’t help ourselves, we’re dreaming of warmer days, and of lighter layers of clothing. For today’s “what to wear Wednesday”, we are going to style a shoe boot or “shootie”. It’s the perfect transition footwear to go with almost anything in your closet. You’ll see what we mean, keep reading.

What to Wear with Shoe Boots

We love the idea of wearing shoe boots with cropped and tailored trousers. Now that pant silhouettes are starting to widen out a bit, we think a fresh way to accessorize them is with our re-souL “Shelley” shootie. The weight balances out the look and the heels give you just a little bit of height to visually lengthen the leg.

Feel like wearing these with a dress? Not a problem. These will be fantastic with a loose fitting shirt dress or a midi-length skirt. You can wear these with or without tights. Just think of it as an alternative to the dress pump in your closet.

But can you dress these down, you say? Yes, you can! They will look super chic with your favorite pair of skinny jeans or leggings. Add a long cardigan or oversized pullover and you are set to go.

So how would you style our Shelley shoe boot? We’d love to hear from you!

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: How to Wear Chunky Heel Booties

Hi there! It’s been a while since we’ve done a “what to wear Wednesday”. Today we are looking at ways to wear a chunky heel ankle boot. We have recently received a great pair by P.Monjo. This black ankle boot would be a beautiful addition to anyone’s shoe closet. Let us show you how we would style this versatile bootie.

What to Wear Wednesday: P. Monjo Booties + Shift Dress

Some gals have a hard time visualizing ankle boots with a dress. But it can be done, we promise! Here we pair them with an above the knee shift. The chunky heel balances out the dressy feel of  a silk or a rayon patterned dress. Wear them with or without tights. These would also look great with a tunic and a pair of leggings.

What to Wear Wednesday: P. Monjo Booties + Cropped Denim

With cropped hems and looser fit denim on the rise, we think a nice pair of chunky heel booties are a good way to dress up your favorite pair of jeans. Wear them with a turtleneck sweater and a textured blazer for the perfect casual Friday outfit.

What to Wear Wednesday: P. Monjo Booties + Midi Dress

Maxi dresses, especially sweater dresses, are super cozy for Fall. Wear these chunky heel booties to elevate your knitwear for a more polished look.

So how would you wear these boots? We’d love to hear from you!

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.
