Back-to- School with Kohl's: Plaid Shirtdress and Ankle Boots

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kohl’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

Get back to school outfit ideas from Kohl's.

If there's one good thing about the end of summer, it's the chance to shop for new clothes like back-to-school fashions. Growing up, that always meant a trip to Kohl's, and while my back-to-school days are behind me, I was excited to team up to share some outfit ideas for those all-important first days back in class!

For fall, I always go back to plaid and stock up on comfy shirts, but a plaid shirtdress is just as versatile and easy to wear. Here I paired a So Plaid Shirtdress with So ankle boots for an effortless look you can wear now when the weather is still warm and well into the winter months with tights or leggings. I'm wearing a size medium in the dress, and the ankle boots are true to size. Both are soooo comfortable. The dress is super soft and lightweight which makes it great for layering (but it's not sheer, so you can wear it alone, too).

Throwback Thursday: Miranda Kerr's Stripe Sweater and Ankle Boots Look for Less

Get Miranda Kerr's moto jacket, striped sweater, olive pants and ankle boots look for less.
This streetstyle look seen on model Miranda Kerr back in 2011 is just as chic today as it was back then. When you combine classic stripes, a leather moto jacket, and ankle boots, you really can't go wrong. This look doesn't stop at simple neutrals, though, because the olive skinny pants and rich burgundy bag really take things up a notch. I think I've personally worn some permutation of this outfit about a million times because it's so easy to throw on, yet always looks pulled together and like you've put some effort into your look (even when you haven't). Print this "look for less" out and hang it in your closet, ladies, because you'll reach for these pieces time and time again, even when you think you've got nothing to wear!
