Now & Later | Peep-Toe Booties

Peep-toe booties have been on my wishlist for several years, but I wasn’t sure how practical they’d be, given the open toe. But then I spied this pair on sale, and was instantly smitten…and turns out, they have a longer seasonal life than traditional closed-toe booties! #whoknew

Granted I won’t wear them in the thick of Winter, but for us, that’s only a couple of months. Thanks to the open-toe, I can wear them Summer and Spring, and because of the bootie shape, they’ll get me through Fall, too. Talk about perfect transitional shoe!

I always make my kids wait until school starts to bust out their new shoes, but I couldn’t follow that rule when it came to these cuties…and instantly styled them for a night out with my favorite $25 dress.


I carried the leopard clutch, of course…it’s pretty much my nighttime go-to now (see it here in my latest Date Night Style). I love how the booties add a little edginess to an otherwise simple outfit, not to mention, the block-heel makes them comfy and easy to walk.

I’ve worn this dress with everything from flat sandals to sneakers, but adding the bootie and a statement earring easily takes it from Day to Night.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small in these pics, but I also have the dress in XS, and I much prefer the smaller size. Sizing up provides more length, but also adds volume. See the XS (my usual size) on me here, and the crewneck version here.

And the addition of a moto or jean jacket takes the whole outfit into Fall.

Now let’s fast forward a few months and see the booties in Fall action. This may not seem like much of a Fall outfit, but considering it took a small army to peel my jeans off after wearing them in 100-degree heat, it’s as Fall as this girl can manage in July!

But once it cools down even more, I’ll swap the halter top for a plaid shirt or sweater, and pair them with the same jeans and booties.

In the meantime, I love this top paired with jeans or black shorts for nights out.

Are you anxious to pull your booties out now? What are your thoughts on the peep-toe? And better yet, has anyone attempted jeans in this ridiculous heat?! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for Little Miss’s new nook reveal!

Update: Even if an item shows as sold out, keep checking back if it’s on your wishlist….things are being restocked daily!

    Peep toe booties are on my wish list! Those are cute on you. I'm so glad I gave this dress a try even though it looks so short on the model. I got my regular size and it's perfect. I could easily size down but happy with the length. I now want it in the high neck version!

  8. Pull my booties out? No…I'm ready to leave the 100 degree heat and pull my entire fall wardrobe out! 🙂 I love the peep toe booties and am considering a different pair from the #NSale.

  9. Totally kicking myself for not ordering more than one color of the dress….received yesterday and I love it! The booties….love them and made the mistake of ordering both colors…now I have to decide!! I really don't need another black pair but I think they just pop in black. And that halter…girl…you definitely make that halter so much cuter than the pictures online!
