The Way To Wear Dresses With Booties This Summer

The Way To Wear Dresses With Booties This Summer

Hello Darlings,

I’m so happy summer is finally here! Man this weekend was a scorcher which meant it was time to bring out the summer dresses. I decided to go a little bit more revealing now that the temps are perfect for breezy dresses. I met up with a local blogger in Corvallis in their cute little downtown area (which I’m seriously obsessed with) and wore a lace and floral number that was seriously so fierce.

Most of you know my obsession with BCBGeneration, they have literally the cutest pieces ever so I had been saving this goodie for a good warm day. The front detail makes it a little sexier than most dresses that I own and I’m so inspired by festival looks that I wore my trusty black medallion hat and my black booties from Via Spiga. While most people love wearing sandals over the summer, I’m more of a booties gal. It’s so easy to just throw on my favorite booties on and pair it with a dress. I even threw on a handmade choker that I literally made from an old dress that came as a belt.

With that being said, if you’re like me and hate sandals, your next go-to are simple black booties (or even brown ones). Style it with a hat and accessories and you’re brunch, festival or just ready to take on the day!

We met at Bellhop which was different than most brunch places I’ve been to around here. The indoor area was so cute with upholstered pink bar stools and a bar that was to die for you’d want it installed in your own house. I went with something a little more adventurous (I know shocker!) and got the Kim Chi Fried Rice with a rhubarb Paloma cocktail which was just so refreshing and even matched my outfit. Danielle got the pork belly hash which was a big serving and definitely a must-have if you’re starving. She got a mimosa to pair with her savoy meal.

Scroll down to see some of the yumminess and that dress that seriously turned heads because I may have been showing a little more boob ( actually a lot more) than usual.

What’s your favorite piece to wear that’s a little more fierce than what you normally would wear?

Let me know in the comments below.

    • Everything was so delicious! And thank you! I wanted to wear this without seeming overly showy but I think the hat with the booties is what makes it go so well together!

  • This is such a cute dress and great for the hot weather. It is so sexy in front but I like that it draws attention to your look. The food looks amazing and being Korean, anytime kimchi fried rice is available, I take it. It is so good especially with that egg on top. I am glad you enjoyed your food and you look so incredible too! xoxo, Christine

  • Aww I love wearing dresses like this one. I think they are so alluring and sexy. And it’s always great to show off your wonderful body, right? Absolutely in love with it. And the boots are so cute too. However, I prefer wearing heels with such light summer dresses.
    This week’s brunch looks so delicious. I would love to meet you some day and chit-chat with you 🙂

  • I love floral dresses, they are so cute and perfect for summer. And I like that you can combine it with quite everything. I like them with the boots too.
    You made a great countryside look, love the boots and the hat. Very nice styling.

  • Now that’s what I call nailing an outfit! The sexy festival look (I just named it that, haha) is perfect paired with booties and a hat and the selfmade choker and is perfect for brunching, which is something I for some reason know you love to do, haha. The yumminess overload in the pictures made me extremely hungry as well, so I bet it was as delicious as I believe!

  • Gotta love a dress with booties – so rocker chic! And good for you for going for it! Trust me – once you get older you’re going to wish you were even more daring in your youth LOL. BTW the food looks amazing at Bellhop! You always find the cutest places to brunch!

  • I used to avoid wearing sandals too until I explored some of my new favorite shoe brands. However I never thought of wearing boots in summer. Looking at your beautiful photos I can’t understand why — I should totally rock some cool boots!!

  • Girl, the front of that dress is a show stopper! And I adore how you paired it festival style with the hat, choker and booties. Very different and cute for summer. And also Kim Chi Fried Rice at Bellhop looks delicious. I have tried making that dish at home before, and it doesn’t look nearly as good!
