The fall Livie and Luca line is here and we couldn't be happier with these beauties. They are even more stunning in person! Think sweet details, smart craftsmanship, and adorableness that matches everything. So we wanted to introduce the newest Livies with some "in real life" photos.
Pios are probably my favorite Livie style. We have a thing for birds here at Smockingbird. The fall Pio lineup includes turquoise and grape leather, and red and gray suede. The sparkly birds on the leather shoes are so cute! And I am in love with the soft suede. Gray is going to go with so much this fall. The leather pios are true to size, but the suede Pios seemed slightly smaller than true to size this season. We sized up on both girls to get through winter. And good news: starting next spring every single size will enjoy the turf sole!! Adios trac sole.
Petals are the classic girly Livie shoe. The red suede ones are to die for! They are my surprise favorite shoe from the new line. SUPER cute and soft! The black patent will be perfect for all those dressier occasions around the holidays. Petals are also very true to size.
Toi Tois are seriously adorable. Right out of the box Sophie said they were comfortable like running shoes -- and believe me, if they weren't comfy Sophie would let us know! Livie hit two home runs with these fuschia and turquoise suede beauties. I wish they came in mama sizes. These are true to size in length but are more narrow in the toe. Sophie is wearing her true size, but Mollie has a wide foot so we sized up for her.
Ruches are super comfy and practical! We love these for school because they are durable and closed-toe. The fall colors are cravable: honey gold, magenta shimmer, and navy. I'm a sucker for a true navy. Ruches are true to size with a slightly wider toe area - plenty of room for socks, tights, growing, whatever.
I'm loving all the suede in this collection. I know some people are afraid of suede. But it's actually a lot more practical than you'd think! Get one of the $5 suede brushes at Tar-jay and you can buff out any playground mishap. Seriously. And they'll never scuff or crack/wrinkle like leather.
If you haven't already shopped this line, you will want to. They are going fast and many sizes and colors are already sold out and not available for reorder.
If you've received yours, we'd love to see some photos of your beauties wearing them out and about!
