I am a firm believer that boots are a year-round style staple. Mostly because I’m stubborn and utterly devoted to boots, but also because I really think they can work in Summer. And with the newest round of cutout booties, these boots were literally made for Summer. (Hear that? That’s the sound of me cheering “I told you so!” to all of my friends and family who made fun of my “Summer booties” in Summer’s past. Okay who am I kidding? They’re still going to make fun of me, but fashion is expression, and I’m going for it.)

As for the round-up, I’m leaning towards the cutout booties with a pointier toe. Though the chunkier versions look edgy on some (and I’ve seen them look seriously chic on a few celebrities, i.e., Nicole Richie, Miley Cyrus, etc.), they remind me so much of the 90s and some things should stay in the 90s … like my entire wardrobe from 1994 to 1999.
