The idea of perforated boots has fascinated me for several seasons. Since boots are, by far, my favorite footwear the notion of hot, humid weather-appropriate tall boots held tremendous appeal. I finally sprung for these a few months back, and have been waiting to try them out. It was neither hot nor humid when I wore them for their first outing, but I can say for certain that I adore them. Comfy, cute, and the only boots I own that allow for calf-breezes.

    Love the DVF dress with the leggings and flats! Adorable and cheerful, but you look ready for anything! Hope you have a fantastic weekend, Sal!

  2. Stacy

    That DVF dress is fabulous! I want something like that to “find” me. πŸ™‚

    Looks great on you ! You always carry cheerful colors so well. Can you tell me if the sizes of DVF wrap dresses is smaller than other sizing ? Meaning, if I look for a used one on eBay, should I go up in size ? Many thanks.

    • Sal

      Yes, definitely. I take a size 8 in nearly all other dresses, but a 10 in DVF!

  4. Patti @ NotDeadYet Style

    Yes! on the DVF dress. You look radiant. I had one when I was in my 20’s (in the 70’s) and though I was All That — and I was! Those wrap dresses are always a yes.

    Your fab perforated boots – are a good bargain at the link you provided. What do you think about the teal . . .?? They aren’t available in my size in your cool neutral.

    You are doing a great job keeping up with the flats without compromising your style. I have no idea if I could do it. But looking at these pictures, contrary to what is tatooed in my head, I realize that flats don’t really make you look shorter or less thin – I guess it’s more that we are used to and like the look of heels.

    I have so much to say about this roundup! Firstly… yay for the ponytail! I know how satisfying it feels to be able to finally sporting a pony when you grow your hair out πŸ™‚

    Secondly Those perforated boots are darling! And I love the purplish dress with the jean jacket… thinking of an outfit (minus the boots sadly) I’m inspired to don now…

    Finally… excuse my drooling. That DVF is fan-fucking-tastic. And that’s exactly how I’d wear it for a casual day. It looks gorgeous on you (and you look gorgeous in it!).

    I love the wrap dress! Such gorgeous colors and a classic shape. That is my kind of shopping outfit – you don’t have to have a fitting room, just a mirror. πŸ™‚ Perfect for thrift shopping – cause I’m sorry but as much as I love thrift shopping, most of the their dressing rooms are kinda icky. πŸ™‚

    I agree the colour of your long shirt is splendiferous and worth reinforcing the buttons – so beautiful!!! xo

  9. The Waves

    I love the blue tunic; the colour is perfection. Also, I’m in love with your boots. πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear about the popped buttons! But you are rocking that wrap dress!! You always look so amazing in those searingly bright colors.

  11. ABCD for Michelle

    Really interesting about the perforated boots! I was curious about them too, and also adore boots–they look great on you! I also noticed them in your list of things to wear with the warmer weather, which is so fabulous to see because I’ve been having a tough time figuring out how to stay trendy, stay cool in the hot weather, and still be office-appropriate.

    Also, I adored seeing the Gap denim jacket. I’ve had mine for years and won’t ever give it up. I recently posted a pic of it on my new blog: http://abcdformichelle.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for all the great tips and inspiration, Sal!

    I love that tunic. Too bad about the buttons, that’s so annoying! Reminds me I should keep an emergency sewing kit at work… And I really love that 2nd outfit, such a cute little dress!
