The Sam Edelman Louie Times Two

The Sam Edelman Louie boots in rose suede (see it in more colors) that I bought at LF are becoming my cornerstone boots for summer days, so I bought them in black as well. To me, the Louie boots are the poor woman's version of the ubiquitous Isabel Marant Dicker boots, except that the fringe detail, inside zip, and foldover cuff gives them more character.  I can attest to their high comfort factor after being on my feet in them for several hours at street fairs and while sourcing vintage apparel.  I initially chose the rose suede because of its neutral hue and leg-lengthening effects. For fall and winter, the black ones will not only show less dirt, but they'll work well with dark tights. (See more colors here.)

Two other things I'm obsessed with this week are vintage 501s that I've bought over the past few months and turned into distressed cutoffs, and any ivory or white top that's lace or crochet. My go-to outfit for casual summer days is fast morphing into an iteration of the aforementioned items.
