TREND: Summertime Booties

With more and more designers incorporating lightweight boots into their spring and summer lines, it's fair to conclude that boots are no longer a footwear style that's restricted to winter months. Among all of the lightweight boot styles that I have seen recently, the ankle-grazing bootie is most definitely my favorite for the spring and summer seasons. Booties are a unique alternative to simple ballet flats or oxfords, and they can easily transport a look from plain-jane to one with an undeniably chic, indie vibe.

This Fashionista sports the really fun bootie trend that I've fallen in love with. Her booties are tan in color and feature a lace-up front and one singular buckle that wraps around her foot. The bootie itself folds down once it reaches her ankle because this Fashionista did not tie them all the way up, and I really like how laid-back this looks. This relaxed attitude exists in the rest of her outfit as well, and she has expertly created a fashion-forward, unquestionably comfortable look which complements her summer-appropriate booties. With her booties, this Fashionista sports a pair of cuffed denim shorts, an oversized oxford shirt which she has tied at her waist, and a pair of tortoiseshell-rimmed sunglasses. This Fashionista tops her look off with beaded bracelets, a skinny, brown belt, and a cocktail ring. Her entire look is easy-going and so fun, and I really love how well (and confidently!) she rocks her booties.

Hint: If you're looking for the perfect pair of summer-appropriate booties, be sure to not purchase those that seem chunky and heavy (these are more for winter). Instead, try ones that feature oxford-like styling or openings. Booties made in these styles are great for summer, and you'll quickly learn to love them as much as I do!
