Back To Class Style

Booties: Steve Madden c/o DSW
Dress: similar
Jacket: H&M
Fall is just around the corner, which means everyone is heading back to class and shopping is a must. This time of year is always one of my favorite times for style and fashion. While the leaves and trees are slowly fading away, new trends are being born and reinvented, and there is a special buzz that only the September issue of Vogue can bring, right?
In celebration of all of this, I've teamed up with DSW to bring you a series of "Back to Class" looks. This first look today is an easy transitional look from summer to fall. (If you live in a warm climate like I do, these transitional looks are vital!) I am all about comfort, especially in a classroom setting. For a laidback, yet stylish look, I've paired a vibrant shirtdress with a denim jacket and classic, lace-up booties. FYI, the trend for fall is boots, boots, and more boots! Over-the-knee boots will be all over the place (which kinda, sorta terrify me with my 5'2" frame, but I am wanting to try!) as well as the ankle bootie. They look great with a skirt, dress, or a pair of distressed skinny jeans. Once it gets a little colder, I will be wearing some chunky socks for a more textured, winter look. Basically, you can't go wrong with a pair of ankle booties, and DSW has hundreds of styles to choose from. Also, if you sign up for their free rewards program, you earn points on every purchase and you'll receive $10 once you've hit 1,500 points. I've been a DSW Reward member for over five years now, and I always look forward to the birthday coupon, because, almost free shoes! There are tons of others perks, which and you can read about and sign up for here!
Stay tuned for my second look and an awesome shoe giveaway next week, follow along with the hashtag #DSWShoeHookup to see how other people are wearing their DSW kicks, and be sure to take a peek at how my fellows blogger ladies are styling their fall looks!
