It's not all black, pink, and white in my wardrobe, these days. I've been crushing hard on deep cranberry and burgundy tones, and finding the places where they fit into my comfort-zone-palette. It's a refreshing and seasonally-appropriate addition to my wardrobe workhorses, and has delightfully played off my recent favorite lipstick colors.
I'll be honest, my memories of Hush Puppies are deeply rooted in mid-90s comfort shoes and moccasins; there was a moment in my elementary school life where their suede, tan, shearling-lined loafers were the shoe to pair with our navy blue uniforms. I never had a pair, but like many of the shoe trends of my 90's dreams (Airwalks, ADIDAS Superstars, and of course, Hush Puppies), I pined after my friends' collections. They sort of fell off the radar for me, but when I found out that they're still around, kicking, and they've updated their trademark casual comfort to stylish and affordable classics, I was ready to take them for a spin. I ordered this burgundy bootie, the "Melodi Langdon," and they actually, honestly, feel like I'm walking with little clouds on my feet. The soles are cushioned and ultra-comfy while giving me a tiny bit of extra height.
I know I don't often do "casual," (I'm basically always overdressed), but for me, the key to casual is loose, flowy, and comfortable pieces. Even with a busy print, dresses like this one are basically an all-in-one look, and adding in the booties in burgundy plays off the color palette really seamlessly. What's your casual?
