Shania's look confirms two very important things: 1. Fall is officially here and 2. Classes are back in session, and we need to dress accordingly.
I love that Shania wore some of her summer pieces to class, in order to transition her personal style from poolside temperatures into the cooler months.

Elements of Shaina's Outfit
1. Simple Necklace & Camo Jacket
Shania's aqua stone necklace caught me off guard - it's such a great little statement. Paired with her camouflage jacket and nude dress, it accents her look in a simple, yet dramatic way.
You can't leave home without a backpack when headed to class. Sometimes the most simple bags can make the biggest impact and Shania's is no exception. This black Jansport bag is utilitarian, making it the perfect addition to her cool camo outfit.
3. Gold-Toed Sneakers
Thanks to Shania, these platform Pumas are next on my list of fall must-haves. The bold gold toes accent the simple grey style that's currently so popular around campus.
