Inspiration Monday

Hello July!
It's hard to believe that it is already here.

Today over on Two Birds our inspiration is Jamie Chung.
I have to admit I that I have no idea who she is, but her look is adorable.
I don't own any cute little lace shorts,
 but I did just purchase this flirty lace skirt.
I threw on my tried and true chambray shirt and 
dug my booties out of the back of my closet.
I would never normally wear booties in the summer and certainly not with a light lace skirt.
Jamie's look works better than mine in that regard I think.
I threw on some turquoise jewelry to round out the look 
and
 tried to snap some pics before the rain began again!

Would you wear booties in the summer?
How about with a lacey skirt or shorts?

I think your look turned out great, but no, I would not wear booties in the summer. Too darn hot!!!

i like this look on you! i love something a little unexpected (like booties in summer) in an outfit!

Kezzie said...

Ooh, you look just like her! Pretty Brett! I wouldn't do boots either!xx

I like how you made this look better actually. The lace shorts trend hasn't hooked me, I think they're a little bit off so I like that you used a skirt instead. Which, when is a lace skirt not in style? Love it!

Super cute. I love the look of lace shorts but haven't found a pair that fits me right. I think booties are really cute with summer clothes, they are just so hot!

Leslie said...

the booties are darling, just might be a little warm:) ..but they always look super cute with a pair of cut offs or a short skirt. fun look Brett!

I like this interpretation a lot! But I think you're right, booties in the summer can be hard to style. Not to mention hot for your feet!
