The power of a boot is often underestimated. They really are the perfect transition piece. As we slowly and begrudgingly begin to trade in our cotton sundresses for light, knit sweaters, keep the booty in mind as the perfect transition piece. This Fashionista owns her ankle boots and proves that even in the midst of intense summer heat waves, there is always room for making a fashion statement. With fall right around the corner, it is hard to deny the practicality in investing in a short boot. They deserve a place on the shelf year-round.
While this Fashionista’s boots may make us think of a time where the temperatures are cooler and the leaves are changing colors, her tropical-themed shorts ensure that the look stays grounded in summer. The palm print is one of this season’s finest of-the-moment trends. While the boots look fabulous paired with shorts, they are equally as chic when thrown on with a paisley sundress. With booties, oftentimes the more wear and tear that they have, the better. Turn to this adorable metallic booty if you need even more help transitioning between the seasons.
This look, with its statement shorts and daring boots coupled with a white, breezy top, is perfect for closing days of summer spent at an outdoor concert or perusing the aisles of the local farmer’s market. Trade in the pattern for detailed denim cutoffs, like this fashion and beauty maven, to achieve a similar, daring look.
At the same time, this Fashionista’s purple, studded cross-body bag offers an accent of color and adds a further element of edge to her outfit. The bright hue of the bag accentuates the playful shorts and works well with the short boots. With the prospect of enjoying the rest of summer plans, it is sometimes easy to forgo a bag for storing your essentials in your pocket. However, the distinct character and punch of having something slung over your shoulder truly makes the outfit complete. While the rest of your summer days fade away, remember to keep it short and sweet.
