Blue Suede Boots

Oh hey, windy city! Whether I like it or not, thanks to this beautiful place, my hair looks windblown almost 100% of the time. Honestly, I can't say I mind. After a few days out of town, it was so good to come back to my beloved Chicago! Now, on to the more important topic–fashion.

Booties have been one of those trends that I have long admired from afar but have never really gotten my hands on. Perhaps it's the perfectionist in me, but my search for the proper pair has been long and grueling endeavor. Color, texture, heel height, leather, and comfort, were all things I considered as I tried on what felt like hundreds of pairs.  When I final gave up my search for winter booties and decided to start my quest for the ideal summer pair, I unexpectedly stumbled upon these beauties. I guess sometimes you just have to let things 'find' you, and dare I say, they are perfect. If you haven't noticed already, S and I are huge fans of details! They can really make or break an outfit, and make styling and fashion a true art. I love the perforated suede and contrasting zippers on this pair, it gives them a little edge and are ideal for the summer heat.

Eyelet shirts, dresses, shorts, skirts...everything. Eyelet fabrics give pieces an effortless touch of femininity. While cream, white, and pastels eyelet items seem to pileup in my closet every spring and summer, I'm a sucker for almost anything cobalt blue so I was thrilled to find this little number! Cobalt blue and eyelet? Yes, please. Thanks, J.Crew for feeding my addiction.
