Dress n' Boots

My latest post inspiration came to me while I was at the dentist. Why there? Because my adorable dental hygienist and I were talking about how we love when girls wear dresses and boots.

Chicago’s weather on Friday was sunny and lovely, so I threw on a yellow dress with some heeled slouchy boots.  You can pull off this look with a feminine and flirty dress paired with simple boots. I’m also a big fan of military boots with skirts, tights and a comfy sweater for fall.

Boots can be worn on cooler summer days. Think of them as any other accessory. They change the look and feel of your outfit and are just darn adorable! Remember to keep it simple and don’t wear too many embellishments on the boots to detract from your flirty dress.  

My outfit head to toe: yellow dress from Green Heart, boots by Report (find them on polyvore), and purse by sabina (available at Nordstrom).

Thanks to Ian for the quick shoot at lunch!
