MUST-HAVE BOOTIES FOR LATE SUMMER AND EARLY FALL

Ok, today I’m sharing THE must-have booties for late summer and early fall, but first things first. . .Who else is watching the eclipse today?! Lexington will have almost 95% totality. I ordered some eclipse glasses at the end of July when they were 5 pairs for $12.99.  Y’all, I just checked on Friday and that same set is now $99.99!!!!!!! I also picked up some pairs at KET’s Super Saturday event. So we’re having an eclipse viewing party at work.  Just a reminder–DO NOT look directly at the eclipse unless you have verified eclipse glasses.  Otherwise, use a pinhole viewer. Also, do not stare at it through a camera lens unless you have a special eclipse filter.

PEEP-TOE, PERFORATED BOOTIES WITH SIDE CUTOUTS

Now, on to the must-have booties for late summer and early fall.  I had been looking for a pair of fall shoes that ticked off all the latest trends: peep-toe, perforated booties with a side cut. DSW contacted me on Instagram and sent me a giftcard, and I knew then that I had to have the Lucky Brand Larise Bootie. They are under $100 and come in 3 colors.

PERFECT FALL FLORAL DRESS

And what about this dress [insert heart eye emojis]?!  The print is perfect for transitioning to fall and it has the cutest details. Or, it also comes in black if you’re looking for the perfect little black dress for fall. The best part is it’s currently under $30 when you use code DRESSY! Right now, I’m pairing it with booties, but I will probably pair it with OTK boots when the weather turns cold.

Tell me–have you hopped on the bootie trend? Also, are you watching the eclipse?!

    Love this dress so much and with the botties it’s absolutely a perfect piece to wear as we transition from summer months to the slightly cooler ones. Definitely saving it to my pintrest for later inspiration. Thanks.

    This dress is so fun; I wouldn’t guess that you snagged it at Target! And love these booties in the tan, I’m excited for mine to come in.

    Peep toe boots are great for transitioning. I love the dress you wore with your boots!

    They’re gorgeous! Unfortunately it’s too hot here in Portugal to wear booties but hopefully it’ll cool down soon!
    Thanks so much for linking up to the Fabulous Friday Link-Up this week!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Such a gorgeous dress! I love the booties, the deep V at the sides is a fab detail for elongating the legs.

    Such a fun outfit, and I love that the dress is Target! Also, I have and LOVE those booties so much I want to go back for another color haha. On an editor’s note, your caption of the outfit details lists the booties as “Lucky Brand via Target” but your description says you received them from DSW. Just thought you might want to fix that!
