{GBF Style How To} Wearing Fall Boots Ahead of Its Season

When Vogue calls, I answer on the first ring. When they ask me to infuse summer feminine style into fall boots, I ransack my closet like a raccoon in a candy store and try on ten different permutations. Mild exaggeration, but I definitely cycled through a few outfits in my head while at spin class yesterday. Rich burgundy and soft supple leather define the Clarks Lida Sayer Bootie. Along with its buckle detail and slightly distressed fading, the boot exudes a rugged look and feel that may not immediately scream summer shoes. But dream the summer dream and it will come true.

I paired the boots with the most summery and feminine dress in my possession as every inch of my Gold Hawk babydoll dress is etched in ladylike heat {similar dress from Free People}. Girly elements like the off-the-shoulder baby doll cut, segmented ruching, light silk fabric in a soft lavender floral print, and the scalloped edges balance out the boots so it can be ahead of its time.

How would you style the boots for summer? Leave a comment so I can report back to Anna Wintour.
