Ankle Boots In The Summer... Is It Still Cool?

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.

What I'm Wearing To The World Natural Hair Show + I'm Teaching A Thrift Style Workshop

World Natural Hair Show, Top Atlanta blogger

Happy Fabulous Friday people!  I am so ready for this weekend.  Can you guess why?  I gave a little hint in the title of this post.  Tomorrow is THE DAY that I get to facilitate a thrifting workshop at the 21st World Natural Hair Show presented by Taliah Waajid

My style session is tomorrow from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm in Classroom: Italian 1-2 (tickets).  I think because I'm so hype about it that I'm not even nervous (at least not yet).  I actually feel really good about the workshop tomorrow.  I still can't believe it.  This is the biggest platform I've been on so far.  And I'm so grateful that God allowed somebody to think about me for this opportunity.  All smiles as I write this post!!!!!! 

You already know that my look has to be bang'n right?  And of course it has to be thrifted, duh!  I've been thinking about what to wear every since I got the call.  And after going back and forth with myself, I decided to repeat a look that I absolutely loved the first time I wore it.  The first time I wore this look was at Atlanta designer Natt Taylor's pop up shop a few weeks ago. 

And to think a couple of years ago I would never be caught wearing the same thing twice. Girl what?!?!  Especially if I got photographed in a look.  No ma'am, Pam!  But baby, I'll be 40 in a few weeks and things like not repeating an outfit is cray cray!.  I'm at a place now where I don't even care anymore.  Which is why I'll be wearing this exact look tomorrow.  The only thing I'm changing is my undergarments and my hair will probably be different.  

My favorite part of this look is the bright yellow ruffle skirt I picked up from vintage shop Ecologie in Kennesaw, GA (It's a bit of a drive, but it's worth it).  My skirt is thrifted, however this ASOS satin pleated midi skirt with hanky hem is super dope and so cute and you should get it.  Guys, I've said it once and I'll say it again, Zara is the real MVP when it comes to shoes.  I would suggest not waiting to get a shoe you really like, their inventory goes quick.  These white brogues are no longer available. 

Well style lover's do me a fave... Send up a prayer that all goes well tomorrow and that something awesome comes from the experience.  Appreciate it and ttyl!
