Winter in Florida means an unpredictable amount of rain and sun paired with a side of cold fronts and heat waves. At least on the coast, weather is fairly temperate. But every Floridian Fashionista holds a soft spot for colder weather, since it allows us to break out that seldom-used winter gear!
This Fashionista sauntered out beneath a warm Florida sun decked out in an airy sundress with knee-high brown boots. Only here can one find a dress suited for spring alongside heavy duty leather footwear. The combination of seasons is commonplace for combatting unpredictable Floridian temperatures and the boot and dress combo is a signature look for the collegiate Southern belle especially.
The deep garnet hue of the dress brings out the rich color of the boot, as well as this Fashionista’s hair. Dressing up the simple outfit with a preppy, white bubble necklace adds a whimsical touch to the ensemble. A classic black Longchamp tote keeps the look elegant but casual.
Spotted: Knee-length boots stomped down the fall 2012 ready-to-wear runway of Bottega Veneta, though they sported a glossy black material in a streamlined look. This Fashionista's boots are more casual with an earthy tone and decorative buckle.
