summer to fall: boots with shorts!?!?

I was brainstorming more ideas on how to take our summer items into fall... or just plain old mix the two seasons of clothing.  My mind works in crazy ways that I sure that you don't want a glimpse at, but somewhere along the lines I asked my self... Self: would you wear boots with shorts?  Self replied: I'd need some talking into on that one.

You know when you like the vague idea of something... but you really need to see it in action first to decide!?!? My self is like that a lot.  Yours?

Well I think I sufficiently talked myself into it. Here are two ways that I WOULD wear boots with shorts...

Adorable wellies and moccasin booties seem perfectly paired with shorts. So tell me... would you swap your flip flops or sandals and wear boots with shorts!?!?

I like it but don't expect I'll be wearing the trend. It just feels weird to wear. Anyway, the California girls on the A&E show - Sister Pickers, where this look all the time!! They look fab!

ha! I wrote a very similar post today...summer dress with boots. I have worn boots with shorts. This time of year I think cut offs work best, but I love it with tights when it gets cooler and it seems less out there, I have no idea why...

I think it is really cute! You should watch the Picker Sisters. They do wear the combo all the time and look great. Actually, I love everything they wear! I bought some moccasins like the ones you put in the post but never thought about wearing them with shorts! Maybe I will give it a try!

I'm not sure...I think what ruins it for me is seeing too many girls in shorts paired with Uggs, and that my friend, is not cute!

I love this look! I worked it this spring when it was still wet and muddy but warm and I wanted to wear a skirt, my green hunters were PERFECT and matched a surprising number of items haha. Can't wait to work it back into my fall wardrobe!

I did this while I was on vacation in Portugal a little while ago. Not even thinking it could be weird, just thinking my legs were cold and I wanted to cover them. My hubby said it was definitely a look that should be repeated. So, rock it away!

Jill GG said...

cute! love the bottom look and totally own the makings of it! thanks for the inspiration! i think i'm gonna show a boots with shorts look for WitW!

Hells to the YES, espesh with those Minnetonkas. I am SO getting a pair of those for fall, and maybe some taller fringey ones too. Carey from Corks and Caftans has this look down to a SCIENCE and she looks fab every single time.

merci!

I would only wear boots with shorts if I had tights on too. I feel like it would look weird otherwise!

Jill GG said...

I'd definitely wear the moccasin booties, but I don't think I'd wear the wellies. They just seem too hot and sweaty to me.

Jill GG said...

I can't wait to try some of these... I'm glad you're liking the look!

Jill GG said...

I'm hoping to try it out... but you're right, it might feel strange. I've never seen "sister pickers" I'll have to check the show out!

Jill GG said...

I liked your post... And your T. Swift comment - ha! Tights are a great option with boots too - I forgot about that style!

Jill GG said...

You should try it! And that's the second vote for "Picker Sisters" - I really need to check that show out!

Jill GG said...

Ha! I love how this idea is new to me as a mid-western but old at played out to you Cali girls! (always ahead of the times, I tell ya!) I love my Uggs though girl. Can't deny that! :)

Jill GG said...

Love Hunters/wellies with shorts!

Jill GG said...

I love that even your guy loved the look!

Jill GG said...

ohhhh! Can't wait to see it!

Jill GG said...

I love your comments... it's like your little voice in my head! I haven't seen Corks and Caftans... I'll be checking it out!

Jill GG said...

Another vote for tights! I love it...

Jill GG said...

I hear ya... I love that everyone has such different views on this subject today!

Jill GG said...

I wear boots with shorts, leggings, and a loose top in the fall - just another way to do layers : )

The print scarf is so pretty!

Jill GG said...

I love boots and short! I wore them with longer shorts and sweaters last year. I always treat the shorts as a skirt and work it in a similar way.

Jill GG said...

I like the sounds of that outfit! I've been hooked on jeans, but I'll have to bring my shorts out again for a couple more wears!

Jill GG said...

That's so true... they are just like skirts essentially!
