I can’t believe how warm it is still. I’m not going to lie, I’m definitely going to soak it up before it drops into the 60s next week. With 60 degree weather comes the need for warm shoes [i.e. booties]. We all know the trends this season are metallics, funky velvet floral/baroque prints and kitten heels. Well, I like to dress to the beat of my own drum and I am personally swooning over the color olive right now – it’s like the new black. While everyone was in a tizzy about the Nordstrom anniversary sale I was able to score these olive green booties from Lord & Taylor for only $53! These Marc Fisher booties were all the rage last season and for some reason I’m just now starting to really be into them. I love the minimalist/western/casual chic vibe of the shoe. I styled the booties with a wrap dress, linen jacket and snake print belt.
What bootie style are you most excited to wear this season?
Summer is always a tricky season for me because the layering options aren’t the best. You pretty much have your tops, bottoms and dresses. Sure, you can layer tanks etc., but when it starts to get really hot out your options become scarce. I typically don’t invest too much in my summer wardrobe, but each summer I add a few new pieces and turn to retailers that have cute clothes for a good price. What can you get for under $100? Well, I’ll tell you:
Don’t only purchase rompers or dresses – separates are always more versatile and you can mix and match them with items you already own.
Lightweight fabric shorts – they’re comfortable and keep you cool
Lightweight fabric tee – something you can dress up or down
Go-to summer dress – wrap dresses are my favorite style because they flatter pretty much every body type.
Go-to accessory – add a new jewelry piece or purse to your wardrobe to wear on rotation frequently.
I chose a few pieces from Abercrombie & Fitch for my wardrobe refresh because their sales are on point. I was able to get shorts, a tee, dress and bracelet all for under $100.
