Transition + A ShoeMint Giveaway!

September 16, 2013

Filed Under: Style

The bohemian style inspiration that I picked up while on our road trip is still going strong. Fall is the perfect time for natural colors and relaxed silhouettes and I am taking full advantage!

I originally bought this dress for summer weather, but it easily transitions into fall by layering over top with a cardigan. The addition the ankle boots really enhances the fall vibes and a long pendant necklace adds to the bohemian feeling.

This look was the perfect transition into autumn ensemble, but I know these boots will last me well into colder weather. For a chance to win your own pair of shoes from ShoeMint, check out the giveaway information below!
