Style Advice of the Week

As we head into a new season, we can all relate to the feeling of searching store after store in mall after mall for that perfect fall shoe. We get excited over tall leather riding boots and chic flats. We keep a watchful eye on those to die for boots and hope they go on sale mid-season. Yet, we long for another shoe; comfortable and cute, yet still feminine and stylish.

When I spotted this Fashionista, the first thing I saw were her shoes. As I looked for more detail, I noticed that the color wasn’t a typical fall chestnut or dark brown. They had more of a rich orange undertone, which I found was interesting. What I loved most about her shoes, were their subtle cross between a moccasin and a loafer. I really liked their loafer style, as they weren't too harsh or clunky, as some loafers tend to be. The cute tassels only added to the overall appeal. I was also told that the fit of the shoes was more like a moccasin, comfortable and relaxed.

It was refreshing to see this type of footwear worn with a dress. I’m used to seeing, and admittedly wearing, flats or boots with most of my dresses. This look, paired with a cute striped sweater dress and a deep red cross-body bag, is yet another perfect outfit inspiration as fall approaches. This ensemble can even be transformed from day to night by just adding a classic demin jacket.

Her shoes reminded me of my Minnetonkas at home, which I wear all year because of their versatility. To get her look, be sure to check out the Kilty Suede Moc by Minnetonka. If you don’t like the typical brown, they come in a variety of colors. To me, this seems like an ideal fall shoe!
