Perforation has been sitting on the sidelines, waiting patiently for its moment to shine in the spotlight again, and the time has come for it to be called back into action. It’s slowly been popping up in accessories collections and garments, looking quite sophisticated on a leather bomber jacket, and equally as cool on a pair of peep toe booties. As much as I love the hard leather look, softened by the perforated punches, there’s just something about it in suede that sends me into full-on swoon mode. Are you as taken by the perforated look as I am? If so, check out some of my favorite accessory picks above, with links to purchase them below.

I’ve always liked monochromatic looks; the difficulty and accomplishment in pairing tops and bottoms, particularly those of different brands, textures, and ages, together, and the overall sophistication of the look, which always reminds me of my time living in Italy and the nonchalance and effortlessness that Italian women seemed to possess when dressed mono chromatically. Knowing me, I ALWAYS have to provide for a pop of color somewhere, and love when I find a new color combination that just seems meant to be. I used to be obsessed with mint, but it seems that my color obsession has evolved into a more mature shade of olive. Green is my mom’s favorite color, so it makes sense that I gravitate toward it as well.
My pops of color are provided in a white handbag and lug sole of my shoes, a purple topper, but my newest and most noteworthy, in my opinion, is an orange-red lip hue I mixed together in order to just try something new. I’ve had the shades resting on my dresser, and thought that individually, they weren’t quite me, but together (orange first then red), they were just perfect. I love when those “aha!” moments happen, especially when they are very spur of the moment, like this one was.

For fall 2015, it’s all about the bootie at Aerosoles. There are more styles than ever to choose from, with each one being more stylish than the last! Speaking of, this season is as much about style as it is about comfort, featuring a new, pointed-toe silhouette for the brand, alongside the ultra-plush heel rest technology found in the Nostalgic heel style. Modern hardware detailing that are equestrian, country, and moto-inspired take precedence, while additional adornments such as fringe and multiple zips and buckles are hard to miss. Rich, fall hues, such as a vibrant cobalt, and fabrics such as brushed suede reign supreme for the season in a collection comprised of favorites found on your feet both during the work week and weekend. See the slideshow above for some of my favorites from the lineup, hitting stores and Aerosoles.com in August.
