Denver Style Magazine: What is the inspiration behind your look today?

Shea: "This outfit allows me to be color-schemed for summer while maintaining my “comfort first” rule. I prefer soft, easy to wear fabrics that I can feel comfortable and cute in throughout the entire day."

DSM: Tell us about your shoes, they juxtaposition your dress and put an edgy twist on the feminine floral pattern.

Shea: "I like matching a short dress/skirt with big chunky boots, the asymmetry of their shape, I think makes the look more visually catching." 

How-To: You can recreate a similar look with a fuzzy scrunchie, a floral skater dress and platform boots.
