Fall Fashion Q+A with Ty Johnson
written by Ty Johnson, lifestyle and fashion blogger
Hi, I’m Ty! I’m a blogger and influencer with a passion for helping busy women who are navigating through everyday life WIN the season they are in. My blog and platform, Live Simply Plush, provides a guilt-free space for women to unwind and focus on the one thing we often put last – ourselves. I provide inspiration and tips to help women conquer overwhelm, make their house a home + achieve effortless style.
What trends are you seeing with flats and loafers this season?
Flats are so fun this season! I’m seeing a lot of prints and textures – suede, leopard and snakeskin. Having a good pair of flats is the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
Describe your ideal outfit to wear with the Willa Loafer.
I love wearing all black, so the first time I saw the Willa loafer in black boa I instantly thought about how perfect they would be with an all-black outfit. For this look, I styled the Willa loafer with some black faux leather leggings and an oversized black sweater – it’s the perfect comfortable yet pulled together look. Vionic’s comfortable flats have a built-in orthotic support that is truly beneficial for our feet.
What do you love most about the Willa?
My favorite thing about this loafer is how versatile it is! I love shoes that are easy to transition between weekday and casual/weekend wear, and the Willa Loafer is just as great dressed up as it is dressed down.
Athleisure has become a huge trend in recent years. What trends are you seeing with sneakers this season?
Retro sneakers are in this season, which is why these Rechelle sneakers are such a hot pick for the Fall. I’ve also seen a lot of color blocking in sneakers, so if you are a lover of bold colors that is definitely on trend for this year.
How would you wear these retro-inspired sneakers?
Am I the only one who loves loungewear?! I saw these sneakers and immediately thought how amazing they would look paired with my favorite loungewear. These sneakers would also be amazing with joggers and even a pair of jeans and a tee.
This sneaker comes in 5 different colorways – which one is your favorite?
I love the toffee nubuck (which I’m wearing) and the white suede. Those two are my favorite because I lean towards wearing more neutral colors because of the flexibility it gives you styling outfits. I can’t wait to get a lot of wear out of the toffee nubuck this Fall and the White Suede is definitely on my wish list!
It’s officially boot season! What is your favorite thing about this pair of booties?
The whole reason that Fall is my favorite season is because I get to wear boots, and I love the color of the Kaylee Boot! The dark taupe is such a neutral color that will compliment so many different outfit and color combinations.
How would you style these boots for fall?
I love wearing boots with dresses, and that is my go-to look in the Fall! I would style the Kaylee Boot with a fun, flowy mini dress, and a denim jacket. Then I’d add a waist belt to bring the look all together.
What were you most surprised by when you tried this boot on?
The thing that surprised me the most about the Kaylee Boot was how comfortable and light they are. Sometimes boots can feel bulky and heavy, but not these! The 3” block heel provides amazing support for your feet, so they are comfortable for all day wear.
