Thanks to Mode Media and DSW for sponsoring today's post. All opinions are honest and my own.


It's back to business as usual around here. Before the kids went back to school, we had to pick out the perfect shoes. Summer is for sandals, but our school has a no-open-toe-shoe policy that makes footwear a challenge.

Bobs are a favorite for school shoes. They work for warm or cold weather, and with dresses, shorts, and pants.

An easy way to transition from summer to fall is with layers.  Leggings, jackets or sweaters keep warm weather outfits in rotation.  This little "leather" jacket gives a sundress a whole new look.

The details on the Bobs are so cute. There's a little rhinestone in place of the O on the tags. Little details like that go a long way for my girl.

For me, back-to-school style means bus-stop style. Or running-errands style. In other words, How can I get dressed as quickly as possible and look put together with the least amount of effort?

It's all about the shoes! Shoes transform an outfit from sloppy to chic. Plaid is super trendy for fall. This tunic with my favorite skinny jeans looks totally put together with these adorable booties from DSW. Another staple in my bus-stop style is the sunglasses. Sunglasses can go on top of the head to hide an unfortunate hair day or, if you aren't camera ready, they can hide tired eyes.

I love these booties and am looking forward to crisp fall days when I can happily wear them to the bus stop and beyond!
