You know that moment when you get water on your new leather shoes and you basically want to cry? No? Yeah, me either... Seriously though, I had a "my favorite new shoes are drenched in water and this is tragic, plus it's ruining my outfit and making me late for work" moment yesterday. Good news though, the shoes are a-okay and with a touch of leather conditioner are going to be even better!
What shoes deserve all this love? My new booties from DSW that I got a couple of weeks ago while on the hunt for the perfect leather, non-pump, non-sandal to wear to work. I was actually inspired to look for these by a Michael Kors wedge and decided that I really wanted a bootie because it had longer seasonal wear. Objectively, I think everyone should get this shoe because the leather is buttery soft, it is a perfect neutral and the stacked heel is comfortable for walking around and wearing all day.
For some reason, people think that a bootie has to be worn with a pair of pants, but you can absolutely wear them with shorts, dresses, etc. Today I am wearing it with this great dress from TJ Maxx (super comfy) and this weekend I might throw them on with a romper! Here are some of my favorite booties from around the internet!

Oh, and since Pinterest helped inspire the beginning of my love of booties, here is a little inspiration for you!
How do you rock your booties in the summer? Also, little anecdote: when I was talking to my Grandma on the phone and said "summer booties," she thought I meant my butt! haha
