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 
 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!

Great look. I would totally wear this. I might wear booties in the summer outside the states of FL and TX.

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!
