How to Wear Booties in the Summer: Cool Kid Status

Linnea White

I call this The Wall Flower OOTD. Cuz it's literally floral and on a wall. But it's also what I'd imagine a super cool wall flower would look like. And this OOTD also teaches you how to wear booties in the Summer.

This outfit is really all about the 'tude. A pair of floral Free People shorts and this stunning cream blouse by Anthropologie could look so feminine and delicate. But I didn't want to style them that way. Cuz what's the fun in doing what's expected (especially with style)? Instead, I took what look like delicate pieces, and styled them for the bad girl - The Wall Flower. The circle sunnies and stacking chokers and Aztec earring jackets give this look a rocker vibe, taking it from sweet to sassy.

And what's really important is how to wear your favorite booties in the Summer. Just because it's hot outside doesn't mean you can't rock a pair of booties! Especially with the right outfit! Booties look great with shorts from romping around in the Summer, and they especially can give a sundress a totally different vibe than all those sandals and wedges you've been wearing. Try it out. Just make sure you wear a good pair of sweat-wicking socks. You'll be glad you did.
