Global Fashion

We are total shoe girls and enjoy all types of footwear. When Ikwetta reached out to us, we were first very intrigued by their brand and story and fell in love with their mission and colorful products. Haven't heard of this brand? Let us give you a rundown of their story:

Ikwetta’s journey began in 2014 when a husband and wife returned to the husband's home country of  Kenya to enjoy a honeymoon trip. Viewing a gathering of over 200 local artisans in Nairobi and their eye-catching, beautifully beaded sandals caught the wife's attention and the idea for Ikwetta was born–but it's about more than fashion, it's about helping Africa's talented artisans become self-supportive. The war against poverty has been happening for ages, but little progress has been made. Ikwetta's mission is to promote these talented artisans and help them sell their beautiful products around the globe, while raising funds to build an actual workshop for these artisans. Therefore, every purchase you make not only changes the life of one artisan, but also helps the African economy flourish and helps Africa stand on its own two feet!

Fringe Benefits of Fall

Fall Fringe Benefits

The fringe benefits of fall are numerous, but nothing is more exciting than shoes for this girl. Wearing fringe totally brings out my inner boho girl, but even if this trend seems outlandish I'd like to refer you to these shoes. Oh, what's that I hear? You're all about the fringe trend now. That's what I thought. For a laugh–please read the reviews of the furry loafers I linked to above. I mean seriously people, I can't make things this ridiculous up.

Happy 2-Year Blogiversary

Regally Soled is officially two! To celebrate our two-year blogiversary, we wanted to do something fun that really showed off our personality and what our blog is all about. Not only was a blog redesign in order, BUT so were cupcakes from The Flying Cupcake, french macarons from The Cake Bake Shop and pink champagne–after all, what is a celebration without champs and sweet treats!

We had the opportunity to work with fellow Indy style blogger, Kelli Bastin of Big Hair & Foodie Fare and had an amazing time meeting this fabulous girl. We met in the heart of the city, right downtown on Monument Circle and snacked, chatted and snapped some amazing photos at this cute little cafe area. Be sure to follow this girl–she's always sharing amazing pictures, yummy recipes and of course adorable style! If you're local, definitely reach out to her for photos.

We've had some much fun blogging over the past few years sharing our style story and getting to know other girls with a love for fashion. Let us know what you think of the new design–Cheers!

Covetable Fall '15 Fashion

Fall 2015 Style Board

Okay, here me out, coveting is totally considered a sin, but have you seen the fall fashion trends for 2015? The fall fashion hitting stores now is more versatile than past seasons and double bonus, each trend works for ALL body types not just uber thin girls–yeah, I'm looking at you cropped tops!

I'm in love with the relaxed look of each of these pieces, and the accompanying vintage vibe. Coming form a girl who prefers tailored, classic pieces that is saying a lot! What fall pieces are you most excited to don?

Black, White & Polka Dotted

Top: Forever 21 (old) | Skirt: SheIn | Shoes: Zara | Clutch: Nicole by Nicole Miller | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Kade Spade | Sunglasses: Bvlgari

There is just something about a classic black and white outfit that is an instant mood-lifter. Add super fun polka dots and I'm practically on Cloud 9. I got this black and white polka dot midi skirt from SheIn a while back and I knew it needed to be paired with this bow blouse that I've literally had since 2008. Don't you just love those pieces that transition easily year after year?

And, as an added bonus, I have a million fun ideas on how I can re-wear this skirt for the holidays. Red sweater, metallic gold pumps, sequins - oh yeah!

If you aren't already following me on Insta, I'm currently teamed up with some other great bloggers for a Tory Burch + Kendra Scott giveaway! Check it out!

Tropical Punch

Wearing - Dress: Trina Turk Elin Dress | Wedges: Jeffrey Campbell Rodillo-Hi Wedge Sandal | Hat: Can't remember! {similar} | Necklace: Tiffany & Co Arrow Necklace | Bracelet: Banana Republic {sold out}; John Hardy Naga Dragon Bracelet | Watch: Vince Camuto Rose Gold Pyramid Watch

Seriously, I just want to be transported to an island in this dress! It packs a perfect tropical punch with the beautiful colors and eyelet pattern. I originally bought it to take with me on our upcoming beach vacation that we have planned over Christmas, but couldn't wait. I totally wore it for a pre-birthday dinner with my Mom and then again the next weekend for an tropical-themed event we hosted on behalf of my sister's foundation and two other local charities.

Not only is the base color of this dress a really pretty blush, but the Jeffrey Campbell Rodillo-Hi wedge sandals match it perfectly. To me they are more blush than nude, but they are still a great neutral that I've already worn quite a few times. If you remember from this post, I bought these on eBay for $107.00–definitely a discount considering they are $144 at Nordstrom!
