Starting Off Right

Well, I've kicked off my challenge today and decided to start with a bang.
Not the best photo, but until my cats grow opposable thumbs, its the best I can do
I wore my new vintage boots I got while visiting my mom out in Alexandria.
It's kind of hard to tell, but they're a deep but vibrant blue
I've been wanting to wear them, but for me, boots are a fall and winter thing. But I have been seeing a ton of boots in fashion lately that have been worn with short shirts and shorts. So I went for it. I'm wearing some dressier black shorts from Juicy (that I picked up at Plato's Closet) and my new basic long sleeve grey shirt from H&M. I love the shorts with long sleeves combo, and I think the boots were a interesting touch, kind of unexpected. They need a little more wearing in (or I need thicker socks), but overall I think it's a good look.

What do you guys think of the boots with shorts idea? Or are they more of a fall kind of shoe?

  1. I think it works! It looks really cute as long you don't do denim shorts AND a plaid button up shirt, because then you've moved into the whole country girl costume-y thing. Which I don't think you'll do.
