The last few weeks I’ve teamed up with DSW for their Back To Class program to bring you a few fun back to school looks, and today I’m excited to share my third and final look. My first look was preppy with my leopard boat shoes, the second a little edgy with my nike running shoes, and this time these Steve Madden lace up booties inspired a simple boho look. With all my chambray wearing, I’ve never worn it open like this and I really liked how this look came together. Perfect for a lived-in, laid back, comfortable-chic look for a day of classes on campus. 
Also, I’ve mentioned it the last few weeks, but DSW is really one of the best places to buy shoes. I’ve been buying shoes there since high school and in addition to having amazing shoes at great prices, they also have a killer rewards program. It’s free to sign up, for every purchase you rack up points, you get extra discounts in your inbox, a gift certificate on your birthday, and more. They’re the best. You can sign up right here!
ALSO! Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway last week! The winner is Roisin McGahey! Watch for an email from me to claim your prize!
