SIDE BY SIDE: MEET OLENALLA

pin it SIDE BY SIDE: MEET OLENALLA

End of July slash August. That tricky time when our hearts and minds start to make a sartorial shift. Our weekends are still in summer mode, but our minds start to drift…”who’s on the cover of the September issues?” And, “when can I break out my leather jacket?” And while everyone is still rocking maxi dresses and mini skirts, we’re excited about intro-ing some new items here and there, and dreaming about how amazing our denim cutoffs and breezy dresses are going to look with ankle booties.

Ahhh…. Ankle booties: a fully committed, yearlong relationship (also a great cover-up for chipped pedicures). Behold the bootie that never quits: OLENALLA

We’ve long had a love affair with this silhouette, maybe since we first spotted some bottines (as they’re referred to in French) grazing the ankles of our fave boho babes – yes, Kate B., Kate M., Alexa Chung, and Zoe Saldana have made ankle boots part of their own signature styles. But for us it all started in 2005, when Sienna was so oft spotted in her blue ankle boots.

OLENALLA is that perfect boot to transition you into fall’s cooler temps while maintaining that effortless vibe we strive for, well into winter. With a leg-lengthening stacked heel, a wear-all-day almond toe and just the right amount of gold detailing without being too “blingy,” OLENALLA takes on a life of its own as a truly season-less staple.

Check out how OLENALLA heeds the call of 2 different looks:

Look 1: Relaxed

Seamless for a Saturday out shopping, a night out with friends or a creative workday meeting, OLENALLA adds some modern boho flair to this Cali-girl inspired look. Add more dimension with colourful accessories and a handbag that’s not matchy-matchy.

Shop look 1: Grey ankle booties, cognac shoulder bag, beaded necklace, watch

Look 2: Refined

Flawless for a day at the office when you want to take your sophistication up a notch or a night out at the city’s resto du jour, the casual vibes of OLENALLA anchor this more graphic look. It’s done up, done right – and far from uptight. (Note: opaque tights optional.)

Shop look 2:   Grey ankle booties, oil slick clutch (coming soon), matte black arm cuff (ALDO accessories), pewter memory rings
