Summer Booties


1. Pour La Victoire Rianna Peep Toe Buckle Booties $208.60 (sale)
2. Belle Sigerson Morrison
Zip Wedge Booties $350
3. Vince Camuto Fast $149
4. DV by Dolce Vita Cooper $135
5. Ash Kate Studded Boot-Flint $300

One of my favorite aspects of style this summer is the idea that "anything goes". This couldn't be more true when it comes to footwear this season and boots are no exception. They've broken away from the "winter" stigma and have reinvented themselves as summer staples. I pair my summer booties with practically everything-shorts, dresses, leggings, jeans, etc. How do you feel about converting boots into your summertime attire?

Hi Valerie, Love the color of # 1, #4 and #5 the best (Of course they are the expensive ones) I guess I am partial to the peep toe as well! I saw some on piperlime recently and thought that maybe I need to get a pair! now I might really be convinced. Have a great day.

Love the studded booties! Sometimes I wear boots or booties in the summer, but the past few days it's been 100 in Philly. I don't even want to think about boots in this weather! Hopefully it cools down soon...

Cara said...

It is so hot here, that I can't even think of wearing boots!

Krystal said...

I need to find a pair :)

I love booties with skirts that go just below the knee... it is kind of an awkward length and I think the bootie adds the edge that makes it outstanding. Great post! You should show us some examples of your summer booty loving... =) And yes I meant to say it like that!

Let's just say I'd do it in a heartbeat if I were out in CA, but unfortunately here, the weather is much too hot. Knowing me, I'd end up buying a pair, and then never wear them, for fear that I'd sweat in them, and then ruin them. Yes, lots of thought went into this. Haha.

I better make some more room in the closet.

Nikki said...

Ohhh Valerie, I love these summer booties. The open toe ones are so so cute. I bet they look great with shorts and a flowy top.

Loving the first pair...perfect summer booties indeed! :)

Audrey Allure said...

They're gorgeous! I love all of them :)

Jammer said...

I bought a pair of booties this summer and everyone looked at me like I was crazy lol I just figured that if it does end up being too hot to wear them, then they roll right into fall!

PetiteGorgeous said...

I've been looking for a pair of summer boots for a while. Thanks for the recommendations! I can see myself wearing the first one.

Valerie-
Just a quick comment to let you know that I'll be on vacation for a week and a 1/2 (in Sonoma- YAY!!) and I'll see (not really "see" but you know what I mean:) when I get back!!

Ooh, I NEED the Belle Sigerson Morrison Zip Wedge Booties - so cute!

Personally, I like rocking boots with flirty frocks every now and then in the summertime - they are so perfect for a laidback, bohemian vibe!! :)

I would love to wear #2! They are so lovely, (I really like the color grey) and they would look great with jeans, and other things.

These are awesome. Sadly it has been 103 here the past week and my feet would be blistered up if I wore one of these cute numbers. Perhaps in the fall???

Tasha said...

I love that first pair, too bad it's out of my price range for shoes!

Also, just wanted to say you look gorgeous in your last outfit post! That shade of pink looks so stunning on you and I love how you paired it with the brown belt and cowboy boots!

I love booties!! My favorite is #1! I really need to find a pair to buy. I love the look so much, yet I don't have any.

SogniSorrisi said...

I think they're great for cooler nights--but not for days like today! Love #1.

Gorgeous shoes. My favourites are 2 and 3. :) x

Bren said...

I love this too Valerie! Carrying over our fall/winter purchases into spring/summer means I can justify spending more on shoes! :D

Btw, I've missed reading your blog! <3

I say go for it! Booties really can be any season. Super cute with shorts and skirts for sure!

Marcie said...

Oh, I love these. Want to hear something crazy? I don't own a pair of booties! I love them, but haven't found a pair I just love (I haven't been looking to hard). Do you have a favorite pair?

My favorite here is Modcloth! They are so cute and not the most expensive for once.

MarchMusings said...

Loving all but can afford the only the Modcloth ones. These are perfect for winter too!

Kristin said...

Loooove #5. So not in the budget. Boo!
