Okay, okay, I know. “Shooties” (shoes + booties) is a silly word like “jeggings.” But if “skorts” and “brunch” have staying power, maybe “shooties” will too.
T-shirt: Old Navy
Pants: Terra Cotta
Shoes: BHAVA Studio
I styled these floral pants on the blog last summer and the summer before, but the shooties are new. They’re by a vegan company called BHAVA Studio. These opened-toed booties are terrific for summer but will carry me through fall as well.
I’m looking forward to wearing my new footwear with shorts, pants, dresses—they’ll go with practically everything.
Another item that looks great with everything—especially bright colors—a simple white t-shirts. I don’t wear them often, but they’re classic and don’t fight for attention with busy patterns. So I went with a white T this time.

I bought a pair of colorful tribal-print palazzo pants this summer and found a few ways to wear them. These look fun with a tank top in any of the colors in the pants: wine, teal, black or white.
Sometimes a simple white T does the job well. This shirt has a slight cowl neck so it’s not exactly plain.
Top: Store in Seattle
Cuff: Lauren Harkness
Purse: Crystalyn Kae
On another day recently, I wore a loose, sleeveless shirt with a bit of detailing on the neckline.
Finally, for evening, I wore a fitted black top with loose sleeves.
Clutch: Crystalyn Kae
I like getting lots of use of my clothes so I need to make sure I can wear items more than one way. These pants passed the test. Plus, they were cool and comfortable on my trip to NYC. I neat the heat in style, so I consider this a win. I wore these in parks, subways, on the street, and out to eat.
What’s your go-to traveling outfit?
