Summer Style | Boots & Shorts

Warm weather is upon us and the hemlines are definitely getting shorter around here, friends. There's just something carefree about summer style that has us loving the boho trend - but not all of us feel that we can pull it off. If you're not the gypsy type by nature, we've got the perfect outfit inspiration to get you there: boots and shorts.
You might be thinking, "Boots? For summer?" That's right, be a rebel! Ankle boots are so much fun for spring and summer, and a great alternative to tired wedges (we still love you though, wedges!). Whether you adore something black with a bit of a heel or flat boots in a shade of brown, there is the perfect pair of boots out there for you. Match a pair of booties with high-waisted denim cutoffs and a crop top, a floral romper, or even a flowing kimono (seriously, how adorable does Jasmin Daily look on the far right above??) or lightweight jacket and they'll be naming you 'Gypsy Queen' by summer's end.

How do you feel about the shorts-and-boots trend? How are you wearing it this season? We'd love to get some outfit inspiration from you lovely ladies so feel free to share your thoughts below!

  2. So....I'm kind of scared of this trend. I think it's gorgeous and looks super chic when it's pulled off, but I"m scared I can't pull it off, haha. I love all of the boots you picked, they are fabulous!

    Stopping by from the link up! :)

  3. I think it is looks really cute and chic on some but on me it just doesn't work. I wish it did but boho never feels right for me in any capacity. Oh well. Love your picks though!


    Thanks for linking up at Whatcha Wearing Wednesday!

  6. I love the idea of boots with shorts. Some of them work so well with shorts. Boots are my all time favorite footwear.
