It's hot, and I'm in boots. The weather has been hot and sticky this past weekend in Toronto and as I had mentioned in a previous post, the warm weather calls for a simple slip dress - but this time with a pair of booties. Call me crazy, or a gluten for punishment, but the last thing that I want to wear in the ultra hot weather is a pair of sandals - I find them so uncomfortable when your feet start to swell in the heat. Plus, I've just been hating showing my feet in public lately. Sporadic onset of foot phobia - it's a thing! Read on for additional photos, outfit details, and to see how I beat the heat this weekend in my own special way.

There is some method to my madness with the summer bootie. I find that I crave a little more structure in a shoe when a heatwave hits - the fact that the boot encloses my entire foot actually helps to keep my feet from swelling (TMI? Oh well!) Wearing a boot is also essential with city living, helping feet to stay clean when running errands in crowded city streets. Plus, who doesn't love the look of a boot with a dress - high fives all around!
I hope you have a great start to the week! Let me know how you've been dressing for our hot summer weather.
