I’m back. Yes, it’s been awhile. I’ve been, well, busy would be an understatement. I have been traveling for the last six weeks and then, life. So I apologize for my unexplained absence but I’m here now … and I have a month of awesome content planned for you. Take that busy travel schedule. I’m also not currently traveling which makes things so much easier. My little one doesn’t even know how to process that. Wait, what? Mommy’s home? So before I book an airline ticket to somewhere I don’t know I’m going yet, let’s talk #Shoesday. It’s been awhile since I’ve written one of these posts but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been shopping and drooling over all the beautiful new Fall shoes and the one catalog I keep returning to again and again is Boden. They get me every time with their details. If you follow me on socials then you have seen a few of my latest loves but today I’m sharing the shoes that have caught my eye. You are going to want to hold on to your seats for this Tuesday Shoesday. #bodenbyme
The Ankle Boot
I highlighted these beauties in my labor day sales post but I’m still loving them. They are perfect for casual Friday or weekend running around.
I would style them with a modern blazer (as a nod to the stripe) and a classic silk blouse (as a nod to the print) and then add some fun cropped jeans to be sure the boot is seen. They are the statement after all. #BeSeen
Classic Pump with a Bow
There is nothing so perfect as the classic pump … until Boden puts a bow on it and then … yessss! I need these in every color … there are seven colors. #YesNeed
I vote you keep the outfit as classic as they come. Tweed. Silk. Pencil Skirt. Classic. My twist? A little color blocking with navy and gold. (The tweed comes in three other colors if gold doesn’t float your boat). #PickGold
These are two boots I essentially already own and love!! I will admit the Boden red is different enough to make me rethink the definition of “already own” but so far I’ve resisted. One boot is perfect for a more buttoned up office environment and the other boot is perfect for more creative workplaces. #BothWinners
These boots are polished but meant for fun!! Put on a sheath dress but then add a killer coat and some fun earrings as a nod to the shoes true vibe!
They also look fabulous styled as the classic pumps above with a pencil skirt and silk blouse. Below is my Stuart Weitzman version of these boots styled with a J.Crew Pencil Skirt and Kate Spade black silk blouse.
My pieces are long since sold out but it is a look that is very easy to recreate (see the classic pump look above).
For the more creative workplaces (or personalities) you need these little red booties. I bought mine last Fall and have been pleasantly surprised by the number of corporate looks I’ve been able to create. See examples here and here and a few more casual looks here and here.
Keep the fun vibe going strong with an unexpected color pairing. I can promise you this is what I will be wearing for the Holidays this year. I ordered the blouse the minute I saw it. #LOVE #BigLove
I opted for a mostly neutral grey outfit with just a few pops of color to play off the stripe. BTW if you don’t already own a pair of pants with a stripe this is one trend you should jump on board with because it is sticking around and it’s just too fun!! These pants also come in black with a green and white stripe. #AlsoCool
Navy Boots and Booties
There is one color boot that I wear endlessly all Fall and Winter and that is my Navy ones. I actually have three pairs: one pair of OTK boots, a pair of booties and a pair of wedge boots (all Navy). When it comes time to buy a new pair, I know the one place I am sure to find a replacement is Boden. They just get navy. Their color is always true and their quality is unmatched. All the boots below also come in other colors … I just have a soft spot in my heart for navy. I didn’t think I was in the market for a new navy boot until I saw these … those tall boots are like sirens … it could happen. #IsntNeedRelative
So there you have my Boden Shoesday Edit and all the favorites I have been eyeing and buying over the last month. Follow me on Instagram Stories all this week as I highlight some of the other pieces from the Boden catalog that have caught my eye and put a hole in my wallet.
