How Neutral Can You Go?

Dress - ICI, thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Boots - 8R Harness Frye

Today I started my outfit from a post by Twenty York Street. The title was How Neutral Can You Go?. I normally can't stop myself from popping neutral outfits. But I decided to give it a try. In honor of my interview over at the gorgeous Wendy Brandes's blog, I started with my animal print dress and some red lipstick. I even did the Wendy pose. I tried to keep things simple, but interesting. Temps are hitting the 100s today.

The belt is new to the blog. Cost me all of 75p. Thrift stores host some amazing accessories for rock bottom prices. And yes, I am wearing boots despite the super heat. Sometimes I prefer to have my feet covered up in summer. Having socks and shoes between me and the humidity actually keeps me cooler sometimes. Do you wear boots in the summer?

  4. Oh, I love this outfit! You know how I feel about leopard! I was just thinking that it's almost time for me to wear my "summer" boots again. Maybe next week.

    Congrats on the interview! I'm dashing off to read it right now.

  6. That dress is gorgeous on you! It looks so great with your boots.

    I would love to wear boots in the summer, but I just can't do it! My feet get way too hot. If I could go barefoot all day, I would. lol

  8. I love your boots and that dress is so pretty on you! I hate socks so I tend to wear sandals from the day the snow melts until the day it reappears!
