We asked fashion blogger Jacklyn Byers to talk to us about her favorite country summer looks. Here’s what she had to say about wearing boots with shorts.
Mother may I… Wear boots with shorts? Yes, you may!
When it comes to fashion, my mom and I don’t quite see eye to eye. Growing up, I broke all her fashion feux pas—I wore white after Labor Day, vintage polyester pants on dates, and flip flops to my prom. She is still not over the latter.
But as of lately, we learned that we agree on something—boots! It’s no secret that boots have become a woman’s go-to. We’ve seen boots with skinny jeans, tights and leggings. But what about shorts? May I please keep wearing my boots into the Summer?
Yes, yes you may.
One of my favorite looks for this Summer are ankle boots with denim shorts. I have to admit that the first time I wore this look out, I had to coach myself a bit. Looking down and seeing my legs that just woke from their Winter slumber in a short boot warranted some hesitation. But I found a full-length mirror and saw that I was actually quite cute. I can do it like the next girl. I fancy this Summer look!
Thanks Jacklyn for helping us with that. Did you know you can even wear boots with shorts in the winter. Here’s Jacklyn wearing boots and a pair of shorts she fashioned out of an Aztec blanket.
Now that you’ve seen how we’re wearing boots with shorts, tell us about your favorite country summer outfit.
