Summer Suede, It's Happening Now

Wearing suede in the summer is about as bad as wearing white in the winter! But since those rules really don't apply anymore, we're going for it! I picked up these suede booties and have worn them a bunch already, it's amazing how many different types of looks they go with.

Jean tip: If jeans are too long (start to get baggy or scrunched on the bottom) they can actually make you look heavier. I have a problem with this with almost every pair of jeans that I buy, so I have made VERY fast friends with a local tailor. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to get these jeans hemmed so I just cuffed them under to make them appear shorter on my body. 
I used to steer away from shoes that came in contact with my ankle because I thought they made my legs look heavier. Now that I've been able to experiment with all kinds of shoes, I realize that is not the case! Like most nude shoes, these booties actually help make my legs look longer. I love pairing them with a summer dress or ripped denim shorts to take a simple look to the next level.
Can you believe it's already the last day of July!? Summer is going by way too fast already! I will be sharing some July 4th outfit ideas this week, so check back soon!
