Never say never.
A year (or so) ago, I publicly declared that the “bootie” trend was horrendous and one I would never be wearing myself; but, now, I’m not so sure…
I have seen SO many regular girls (like bloggers and the cute girl across the street that wears awesome clothes and I sometimes – creepishly – live vicariously through) wearing booties and looking great.
*No photos of my neighbor. That would take my creepiness to a whole new level, obviously.
My body is in NO condition to try out a trend like this right now (geez Louise, I’d probably topple right over); but, I’m seriously considering investing in a pair of low-heel neutral-colored booties (like these or these – both on end-of-season sale right now) in the future. I think the key is wearing them with cropped or rolled pants – instead of tucking pants in or wearing with a dress – at least for someone with my stature etc. Apparently, they are also pretty wonderful with white jeans (maybe for spring?), but I’m not sure these legs could handle that. What do you think? Are they only for tall model types? Be honest. This is important stuff.
Your friendly wannabe fashionista,
P.S. Did you hear my podcast interview with Sarah R. Bagley yesterday? If you missed it, listen here.
