I almost titled this post – “Trying on Hipster” because I felt my hip-meter go up a few hundred points when pairing boots with shorts.  I know, I know – I am certainly not reinventing the wheel, breaking fashion boundaries nor beginning a blossoming trend.  Its just boots with shorts, but for me it was like a whole new world.  My comfort zone is styling these shorts with a tank and sandals, ala this post, but what is the point of having a fashion blog if not to push your style limits?  My personal style limits, not any style limits.  These aforementioned and featured boots were a buy last year that quickly became my best investment all year.  And now with my current pairing, the shelf life of these bad boys just got an extended warranty.  How silly I was to think boots are only for winter.  Last year me got a schooling from now-I-have-a-fashion-blog this year me.  But naturally the color story is still neutral, except for a neon pop with the belt – after all, conservative me is still lurking there somewhere underneath.
