Rocky Barnes: Our Fall 2017 Style Ambassador

rocky barnes blog 1

You guys. Count us among it-girl Rocky Barnes’ faithful following.

Take one look at her travel-centric lifestyle blog and Instagram feed. You’ll instantly see why this California-cool model has amassed so many fans. One day she’s wearing a tomboy-inspired denim on denim look. The next she stuns in a gorgeous gown. The confidence and ease is the same in both looks. And we can’t help but find that confidence contagious.

Rocky’s style is original. She imbues her personal touch and eye for accessorizing into every outfit. When we step out this fall, we will channel Rocky’s insurmountable confidence and penchant to dress originally.

Rocky handpicked a few of our favorite boots from our Fall 2017 Collection: MERCIA and MESA.

First is MERCIA, a mid-calf boot Rocky wore in burgundy suede. She styled it with an asymmetric patchwork skirt that shows off the boot’s beautiful leather. Over the skirt, she wore an oversize sweater tied together by two belts. The mismatched belts put an original and surprising spin on this look.

That creative impulse to mix and match belts is what catches the eye and defines an outfit. About her unique eye for accessorizing, Rocky told us, “Accessories make an outfit. I love adding statement jewelry or a cool bag to finish off a look. I love collecting accessories from my travels, they are always memories of places I have been and have a great story behind how it was discovered.”

Rocky also wore MESA, pictured below. She styled the ankle bootie with a vintage-inspired pair of two-tone crop jeans. When we asked her about some of her closet staples, she said among her favorite pieces are, “good denim, vintage convert shirts, and kimonos.” Check, check, and check.

These three staples come together in a cool, nostalgic get-up. Of course, nothing goes better with a great pair of denim jeans than a great pair of ankle boots. Rocky picked MESA in fumo greyIt’s available in four other leathers here.

This fall, take a cue from Rocky and transform your outfits into something originally yours.
