We’re leaving this morning to take C to college in Massachusetts, and R starts back to high school in just over a week. Surreal doesn’t even begin to describe my feelings on the matter. Fortunately we’ve been keeping busy with making lists, packing, and shopping for all the things.
Meanwhile, DSW reached out about partnering on another post, and the girls were all in. I mean, what teenage girl doesn’t love shoe shopping? I thought it was amusing that all three of us picked white or off-white shoes.
Not only does DSW have a wide selection of on-trend shoes at great prices, they have a large accessories department with lots of backpacks, water bottles, and other back-to-school necessities.
R added this stainless steel water bottle to her order because she always brings water with her to school, to stay hydrated throughout the day.
She also chose these Birkenstock Arizona slides in the white, which is super on trend right now. She already has the Mayari in the mocha, and she likes them so much, she decided to add the Arizona to her closet.
We often have warm weather well into the fall months here in Pennsylvania, so she will get a lot of wear out of these before she has to pack them away for winter. These run true to size, and they have adjustable straps for the perfect fit.
C went the opposite direction from sandals, and she picked out these lug sole hiker boots in the off-white. She has a pair of Crown Vintage hiker boots from a couple years ago that she wears a lot in the wintertime, and they held up great, but she was due for a fresh pair.
These will be perfect for Massachusetts in the fall and winter. They came with an extra pair of laces with more vibrant colors, but she liked this neutral pair best. These boots run true to size, or size up if in between.
And I was thrilled to find these Marc Fisher booties for under $100. They come in four colors, and I chose the beige suede because I love how it pairs with the light wash jeans that are trending this season.
These are the pull-on style with a 3″ woodgrain block heel and the snip toe that is very much on trend right now. They’re very comfortable right out of the box; I wore them around for an hour or so they day we shot this look, and they felt great on.
Don’t blink, mamas! I feel like it was just last year that we were shopping in the children’s department for back-to-school shoes, and now both of these girls wear a larger shoe than I do!
Whether you’re shopping for little kids or big ones, they can start off this new school year in style with a range of sizes and trendy, seasonal styles at DSW.
