I wore this for a recent segment on the Fox 9 Buzz. Topic was nautical. This was about as close as I could get. My wardrobe has plenty of preppy staples but I’ve only been on boats a few times and ended up seasick at least half of those, so I’ve never been drawn to rope and anchor and boat motifs. I don’t even like the beach all that much. But I loved the way this palette worked with the rich browns of the accessories and the fun pop of mustard yellow from the bag.

I’ve got a lot of fun projects and events in the cooker right now, so I feel like I’m in a constant state of gearing up. This dress is one I picked out from Bella Boutique in advance of an event I’ll be hosting there on July 24 (details below). The shop is packed with cute dresses, great layering basics, and loads of fun accessories so it was tough to winnow it down to just one item! But this dress has some of my favorite colors – rich purple and vibrant magenta – and is perfect to wear now but will also transition beautifully into fall and winter wear. A winner all around.

Dressed for: Summer Boots

Already Pretty outfit featuring brown polka dot dress, Frye Carmen Woven boots, denim jacket, Ellington hobo

Denim jacket – Gap (no longer available) – similar
Dress – Boden
Belt – from a pair of shorts - similar
Boots – Frye Carmen Woven
Bag - Sadie courtesy Ellington
Earrings – Corset
Bracelet – thrifted – similar look

I’ve long advocated for wearing boots in summer , and generally feel that three styles work best for warm weather wear: Short boots, light-colored boots, and Western-influenced styles. These Frye Carmen Wovens have been worn dozens of times since I snagged them in the spring, and hit ALL THREE MARKS. They are so comfy that I actually sigh every time I slip them on, and I fully intend to wear them year-round. Bonus: They work beautifully with my Boden-does-the-”Pretty-Woman”-polo-scene dress. Unintentional, but happy-making.
