I can’t count how many times I’ve advised my personal stylist clients to take a risk, step outside of the box, shake things up a bit (a bunch). With today’s look, I’m taking my own advice - hence the booties in this Hotlanta weather. Honestly, I never understood the whole boots in summer trend (or the sandals in winter). Yet here I am.
One of my go-to methods for putting a look together is to start with my shoes first, then build the look from there. Scanning over my shoe collection I kept coming back to this floral print ankle bootie. All the while I’m telling myself boots aren’t meant to be worn in hot weather. But wouldn’t you know it, my mind had already started putting together an outfit.
Instantly I remembered this canary yellow ruffle skirt (also worn HERE) that I picked up a while ago at Ecologie Vintage Shop (if you’re into vintage, you need to check them out). With all the colors in this bootie, it was exciting coming up with different ways to style the rest of the look. After several options, I ended up going with this blue polka dot button up top and fuchsia pink blazer. This could even be a workwear ensemble - #outfitinspo.
Here’s the kicker guy’s… I’m not even thrilled with this look. I mean it works, but it’s the booties in the summer that keeps blowing my mind. What are your thoughts on wearing boot/booties in the summer time? Let me know in the comments below.
