We are moving onto yet another item for you guys in Fall...SCARVES! I am not typically a big scarf girl and more so find myself using them for utilitarian purposes like under a coat or jacket to keep my neck and chest warm. However, I find the square silk scarves to be a great statement item without having to overthink in wearing it. What: Silk Square Scarf Where: Target, Banana Republic Factory, J.Crew Cost: $15.00-$40.00 depending on the promotion Wear & Pair: There are t
I just splurged on a new pair of Sorel Emelie Conquest boots. I've been thinking and hunting for the right boot for awhile. Believe it or not, I ride a motorcycle. When I ride, I like to have a chic-sporty look but, I also want to be safe. I always wear a helmet. I always wear a jacket. And... I wear boots. When on the bike, the motor sometimes can get hot so having a sturdy pair of boots to protect my ankles is a good thing. A stiff boot toe is important for shifting
IT'S BOOTIE SEASON, Y'ALL!! Gosh, I love me some booties. If you ask any of us at A La Mode, we will say you need to have a good go-to bootie. They are a NEED in your wardrobe... not a want! When it comes to booties, I get extremely picky on the toe shape. I love a good pointed toe bootie, which is why I am a huge fan of Marc Fisher booties. The toe shape elongates your legs and looks fantastic on everyone. I specifically like this bootie because it really goes with anything.
The Midwest weather is officially taking a cooler turn into fall! This is the time of year where I start to switch out my apparel into their seasonal storage. I always tell my clients it's a great way to make getting dressed easier, minimize what you have in your immediate wardrobe, and feel like you have new, fresh pieces from season to season. Carly kicked off our BOOTIES segment on Tuesday and we are carrying forward with more ideas to amp up your fall fashion. I have a
The next two weeks are all about ankle boots here at À La Mode. And while I love ankle boots and will certainly be wearing many of my loves from years past, with fall beginning around us, I am most excited for my newest addition to my boot lineup, a waterproof Chelsea rain boot by Hunter. Last year, I was wearing my Pikolinos (read more on them here) and snow boots constantly as I was doing so much running around in the elements. If I worked in a desk job I would wear leath
SNEAKERS!!! You have no idea how excited I am to be writing about sneakers. Honestly, shoes in general are just so much fun for me. My love for sneakers developed so many years ago. I want to say when I was in 7th grade I bought a pair of hightop Puma's. These Puma's are my pride and joy. I still have them to this day and I will NEVER get rid of them! Surprisingly, there is one thing about my style that has never changed, my love of statement shoes. I collect statement shoes,
What: Sierra Wedge Sneaker by Naturalizer Where: Nordstrom Rack Cost: $54.97 Why: To be on the up and up, I just ordered these. In fact, I ordered a couple different sleek sneaker options. I am walking/running/shopping so much that the days of shopping in heels are no longer. My feet need comfort to endure. I have a high arch and so I look for shoes that have an arch to support mine. Wear & Pair: I look forward to wearing these with jeans and joggers, a sweater or a blaz
Man, has it been a crazy summer. Hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday weekend and gearing up for the crazy fall is sure to bring with it! Before quarantine, but especially since, I have found myself in sneakers CONSTANTLY. This fall, we will be kicking off the blog with some topics we found fitting to get you ready for the season.
