DSW Shoe Hookup: Back to Class Contest

I’m so excited to share with you the second installment of our DSW Shoe Hookup – Back to Class campaign. Even better? I’m hosting a Back to Class contest with DSW so you can get your chance at free shoes. But first, let me share with you my second style post to get you into that Back to Class spirit with my new boots!

When I received this gorgeous Steve Madden Rubin bootie, I fell in love with the color. That warm cognac? It’s so perfect for earthy and wine colors – the shades of Fall. It reminds me of the leaves falling come “Ber” months. But if you’re more of a black, pale blue or taupe kinda-girl, don’t worry – it comes in those colors too! This pair of cognac boots however, were the perfect match to my new bucket bag. Not that I matched them on purpose – it just so happens they go so well together like toast and butter!

To complete the shades and prints of Autumn/Fall, I mixed in a little bit of leopard in the form of my new pair of sunglasses c/o Haze.

I added in some faux black leather to get that Fall look on point. And as we transition from Summer to Fall, I chose a floral dress but with a black color base.

I hope you love this look as much as I did. It’s a great transitional outfit. You can take off the jacket when it’s still warm outside. But when the temps start to drop, a light jacket such as this, completes this Fall ensemble. And the boots? They are great for any season… seriously!

    May I ask where you purchased the JS faux leather jacket? I LOVE it! I’ve been trying to search for one and had no luck finding one I actually like.
