The fall temperatures have officially arrived in Chicago and I could not be more excited about it! Don’t get me wrong, I love warm weather, but fall fashion is where it’s at!
Typically when you think of fall fashion, you think boots and beanies, but you don’t have to pack your sneakers away just yet! Especially if you have a comfortable, all-purpose pair like these wool runners from Allbirds.

One of my favorite thing about Allbirds is the fact that they’re made from New Zealand merino (sheep) wool. Which means not only are they sustainable and good for the environment, but they’re also SUPER comfortable. I’ve never touched a sheep before, but if they feel anything like these shoes, they’re basically made of clouds.
I recently had a photo shoot in L.A. and one of the assistants on set was wearing a pair. When I stopped her to tell her how much I loved her Allbirds, she immediately started to rave about how comfortable they were and how she basically wears them to work every single day. So even if you don’t believe me, believe her!
The fact that they’re made of wool and have such great visual texture also lends itself to being the perfect fall sneaker. The look and feel of the sneaker will “warm up ” any look and play well with coats and layers.
I paired the all-black wool runners with a pair of black ankle skinny jeans, a black hoodie and an oversized denim jacket. It’s a simple casual look that I would wear for any day-to-day occasion and like to consider my “off-duty blogger” look.
They also come in a number of different colors (I’m obsessed with the lavender and mint color ways) which is just another reason they’re the perfect shoe for everything that you do. I’m always ripping and running around the city, so I’m always on the hunt for stylish and comfortable shoes. So, I’m definitely going to be investing a few more pair so these.
If you’re more a “slip ’em on and go” kind of person, try the wool loungers. They’re super cute and definitely for hitting the town and #notforlounging! My favorite are the lavender loungers and Christmas will be here before you know it, so…hint, hint. Lol.
