Boots Meet Shorts


{Top: Bloom | Shorts: Bloom | Boots: Fossil (similar) | Sunnies: c/o Coach | Bag: Nan Lee}

I had a debate with myself this morning if I should go with boots or not. Not because of the outfit but because it’s back up to the 80’s today. As you can tell whatever justification I used to wear the boots, it won me over. I think it was something along the lines of “well…I mean…it IS October after all and…well…why wouldn’t you wear boots?”

  4. Boots and shorts are my favorite. Or boots and mini dresses. Or boots and skirts. It's the thing we do in the South. It just makes more sense. And you have legs for days, so rock it. It's not fair!

  5. haha. Growing up down South, I used to do the same thing! Boots with shorts in October is the only way to show that you are tired of the crazy hot weather. It's like giving the humidity the middle finger. 

    Love the outfit!

    Completely agree! Once the boots come out of the closet, they're not going back in again until March or April-ish.
