What to Wear Wednesday with re-souL


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 new 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. And, 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 layer a leather jacket over top with any of these or wear them sans cover up. 

 Cecliy Dress. Available in multiple colors. All Saints. $230.

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.

  Veronica Beard  'Socal Trench' Vest. Nordstrom. $495.

 Off-The-Shoulder Dotted Top. Anthropologie. $178.

  MARC JACOBS  'Recruit' Leather Hobo. Available in multiple colors. Nordstrom. $495.

  Frame  'Le Color Rip' Skinny Jeans (Film Noir). Nordstrom. $199.

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. 

I'm dying to hear how you style them. Please share!
