Looks We Love: The Trixie Shootie

trixie-header

It’s no secret: we love ourselves a good pair of shooties. They’re super on-trend and seamlessly transition from season to season. This fall, fashion bloggers are loving our Total Motion Trixie Shootie, which features an uber comfortable 75MM (3-inch) block heel and a high vamp for flattering coverage, available in three shades of suede. Here we’ve rounded up how some of our favorite bloggers are wearing theirs.

Vanessa Lambert, blogger of What Would V Wear, keeps things casual yet sophisticated with our Trixie shootie paired with raw hem denim and a striped turtleneck tank. The shootie’s coconut shade in luxe suede is perfect for fall and lends an instant richness to the ensemble. The metallic heel strap adds a dose of polish and features an adjustable buckle closure for the perfect fit.

For a more casual (yet equally chic) look, Shannon Pulsifer, blogger behind Itsy Bitsy Indulgences, pairs her Trixie heels with a chunky sweater and distressed denim. The black suede shooties pair perfectly with her gorgeous black floral bag and the TPU outsole provides support and stability while she’s on the move with her hubby (pictured here in our Wynstin Chukka).

These super versatile shooties can also be dressed up a la Erin Ennis, creator of A Style Sew Lovely. Here she pairs them with a chic golden print dress, tan bag and gold jewelry for a look that will easily transition from the office to after work drinks. The partially removable retention foam footbed provides lightweight comfort and impact absorption for that after-work commute.

Looks We Love: Feel Good Flats

full-cover

When it comes to fall footwear, we’re all about the feel-good flats. From classy ankle straps to classic ballet styles, the Adelyn flats from our new fall collection feature luxe materials and metallic accents that will instantly upgrade any ensemble. They’re also packed with comfort technology for flats that feel as good as they look. See how some of our favorite bloggers are styling theirs.

Work to weekend. We love how Krystal Faircloth, lifestyle blogger behind A Pinch of Lovely, pairs her Total Motion Adelyn Ankle Strap flats with one of our favorite trends right now – raw hem denim. The high-low cut nicely showcases the shoes, which feature soft suedes and luxe gold accents that will add instant polish to any outfit. The delicately low heel gives a little lift and the retention foam footbed provides lightweight durability and impact absorption for all day comfort. Krystal tops off the ensemble with stripes, a cozy knit sweater, and a structured bag in a gorgeous pop of red. Cozy chic at its best.

cheetah

Date night done right. Laura Boswell, fashion blogger for Walking in Memphis in High Heels, had us at her cheetah bag, which pairs perfectly with our Adelyn in black (or in pebble for that matter). We love how she balanced out both pieces with a ruffled blouse and simple black jeans, allowing the gold accents to really pop. Her husband’s shoe of choice, the Style Purpose Perf Plain Toe, features a modern handcrafted look with a built-in comfort system for all day support. Both spot-on choices for date night.

A walk in the park. We’re loving this romantic look from Elise Armitage, blogger behind What the Fab. Her Adelyn flats in on-trend suede add instant texture to a classic wrap dress for a look that can be worn from work to after dark. Bonus: the flats have a super convenient back zip so you can easily slip them off and sink your toes in the grass.

shorts

Go for gloss. If you’re going for a more classic flat, meet the Adelyn Ballet. These versatile lovelies can be worn with anything from tailored slacks to high waisted shorts, a la Espe Gomez from Two Trends blog. We love the glossy vibe of these flats in bronze patent but they’re also available in ten other shades, including suedes and croco. The midsole plate and TPU outsole provide optimal support and stability, so she can easily go from a day of shopping to a lunch date with her honey (pictured here in our Wynstin Chukka).

Fall for Massachusetts’ Fall Destinations

Fall is one of our favorite times here in New England, not only for the fab footwear we get to wear, but also for the fantastic fall foliage and local festivities we are lucky enough to enjoy. Here are some of our top spots to visit in our hometown of Massachusetts this season, and a few fall shoes to help you stay comfortable while you’re here.

Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts: Experience some of the most beautiful foliage Fall has to offer in the quaint town of Shelburne Falls. Folks come from all over to leaf peep and view the Bridge of Flowers, a former trolley track turned gorgeous garden, housing over five hundred different varieties of perennials and annuals, from late spring to early fall. Another must-see: the Glacial Potholes, a collection of over fifty whirling pools left by the glacial age, over 14,000 years ago, and the site of the largest natural pothole on record. While you’re there, be sure to check out old town treasures like the Shelburne Falls Bowling Alley – one of the oldest in the country – and Gould’s Maple Sugarhouse for a pancake breakfast with local maple syrup. To see the sights in style and stay comfortable all day long, we suggest our Thurston Moc Boot for the guys and our Cobb Hill Willa Bow Slip On for the ladies.

Salem, Massachusetts: The old and historic town of Salem is a great place to visit year-round but truly comes to life in the fall. Check out Haunted Happenings for attractions and events, including guided tours, theatrical performances, haunted houses and hayrides. If you’re looking to learn about the famous Salem Witch Trials of 1692, the most popular attraction is the Salem Witch Museum, featuring exhibits with live narrations and guided tours. You can also stop by the House of the Seven Gables, the country’s oldest wooden mansion, and the inspiration for Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1851 novel. While you’re walking around the ‘’haunted neighborhood’’ of the Salem Witch Village, be sure to wear comfortable shoes like our Colle Mid Lace Up and our Ariell Lace to Toe, both of which offer removable Ortholite® footbeds for lightweight, breathable cushioning. In black, perhaps.

Boston, Massachusetts: Fall is one of the best times of the year to visit Boston, when the air is crisp and cool and the city is alive with festivities. One of the biggest events, The Head of the Charles Regatta, brings the world’s best crew teams to Boston, this year on October 21st– 22nd.  From beer and food to film and art, there seems to be a festival for everyone this time of year in the city. Check out Sam Adams Octoberfest for beer, live music and a stein hoisting competition, or Pumpkin Palooza at the Lawn on D for some Halloween-themed fun for the whole family. For a dose of colonial history, take the famous Freedom Trail Walking Tour. It’s 2.5 miles long so be sure to wear comfortable kicks like our Colle Slip On and our Cobb Hill Willa High Top.
