Disclosure: Thank you to DSW and Shopstyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were chosen and loved by my nieces and nephews!
I don’t know about where you live, but schools here in Indiana are back in session and while this is always such a busy time gathering all of the supplies, meeting the teachers, and making sure your kids remember how to wake up at a reasonable time in the morning, it’s also such a precious time to watch your littles step into a new season of life. While I don’t have kids of my own [yet!] I always get a little emotional knowing my nieces and nephews are jumping into a new school year. I will never understand how they grow up so fast [I swear yesterday they had pacifiers in their mouths and their biggest worry was what toy they were going to play with], but here we are.
I take my responsibilities as “Aunt Erin” very seriously and one of those is to help make sure they are putting their best foot forward as they head back to school [pun intended]. The best place I have found to shop when it comes to footwear for the entire family? DSW. They have a HUGE selection of well-known and trusted brands at prices you can’t beat. Not only do they have you covered in the shoe department, but they have a ton of back-to-school essentials as well! With your ability to shop online [their shipping is so fast!] or in-store, you can’t go wrong when choosing DSW for all of your back-to-school needs! Another major perk of shopping at DSW? Their shoe donation program, Soles4Souls where you can donate gently worn shoes (up to 1 pair per week) which are vetted and donated to nonprofit organizations in developing nations! Sign up for FREE to become a DSW VIP Member (comes with perks like free shipping!)
I thought it’d be fun to give my nieces and nephew a run at this whole modeling thing for them to show off their new kicks. Thankfully, they were up for the challenge [anything is possible when free shoes are on the other side of the task ;)]

Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
