Who says boots are only for winter? Not these gals! Since the '90s resurgence is RAGING in an absolutely-no-one-can-stop-it-now full force, we're embracing it with superwide open arms. We loveeee how these lace-up leather boots look with fun and flirty summer dresses that SCREAM Blossom. (Minus the hat.) Boots for the summer are where it's AT, and these super inspiring awesomesauce bloggers show us that yes, you CAN wear boots even on the hottest of summer days and still look KILLER.
One of our favorite looks comes from Washington-based blogger and VINTAGE QUEEN (seriously, look at her blog. Suddenly your thrifting skills will feel extremely subpar.) Solanah Hernandez of Vixen Vintage. Her outfit is almost entirely secondhand (well, of course) except for her perfect fitting mustard cable-knit sweater that she... wait for it... MADE HERSELF. Yeah. *starts crying* Solanah makes her black boots look summery by pairing them with thin white socks and a bright green patterned midi skirt, a light blouse, and colorful accessories. But this 'dorbs outfit is just the beginning. Check out two more stylish ways to wear these boots after the jump!
Style Bouquet blogger Abi NAILS the downtown chic summertime look with a greenish-gray layered maxi paired with an over-sized open crochet jacket and tonns of bangles. She avoids the matronly by keeping accessories minimal-chic AND by flashing some leg with a thigh-high slit juusssttt high enough to keep the boys guessing. She looks so comfy AND summery without going over the top.
If you're not feeling the maxi skirt, there are STILL other ways to rock uh-mazing lace-up boots on hot days! Victoria Sherman from My Floating Balloon paired a $10 floral romper from Wal-Mart (YEAH, I KNOW) with Marciano bleached jean jacket and Fossil boots. Not only does this outfit look sooo super cute and summery (and DANG, look at those gams!), but it also makes us wish we dressed THAT awesome when we were 17. *slow clap* Get it, girl.
