Lookbook: By Your Bootstraps


I took these photos a couple weekends ago. I didn't end up doing half the things I had originally planned to do. I blame it on being too jet-lagged from my trip. I fell asleep in the wee hours of the morning and woke up in the afternoon, which means I missed my morning window to take outfit pictures. And have you realized that it's starting to get dark early again? I swear that came out of nowhere. DST is not until November, but I think I'll have to start watching the clock sooner than ever.

These boots from SOREL are a pretty sweet addition to my fall wardrobe. They are a combination of both bold and beautiful. I feel like I can wear them with denim or with shorts. This boot style has a very comfortable fit while still feeling quite refined and modern. Definitely consider adding a pair of these or one of the company's other styles to your wish list this fall.

Right now you can also share your back to campus look with #SORELstyleContest on Twitter or Instagram and win a trip to New York for teenVOGUE's Fashion University, or one of ten $250 shopping sprees and SOREL boots. And I know you want a pair so start sharing!
