One Style, Two Ways: Double Fringe Side Zip Boot

Melissa from Bubby & Bean and Laura from Roots & Feathers

Autumn is officially here.  Which means finding the perfect pieces to keep us comfortable on cool days and cozy during chilly fall nights.

To celebrate the start of our favorite season we asked bloggers Melissa and Laura to each put their own unique twist on styling a classic suede staple, the Double Fringe Side Zip Boot.

Melissa and Laura both had boho chic comfort in mind when styling these cozy, casual looks incorporating a few fall essentials: cool tones, lots of layers and the perfect ankle boot.

Each Minnetonka boot can be worn a million different ways. Show us how you style your favorite pair for the chance to win!  Enter our #MyMinnetonka contest now.

Chelsea from Zipped and Shaynah from Ruffled Snob

A single Minnetonka style can be worn a million different ways. We asked two Minneapolis bloggers who definitely know more than a thing or two about awesome personal style, Chelsea from Zipped and Shaynah from Ruffled Snob to take one moc and fashion it two different ways.

Inspired by the eye-catching black and white pattern of our new Baja Moc, Chelsea and Shaynah created two classically cool fall looks that have us dreaming of cozy knits and distressed denim to wear all season long.

How would you style the Baja Moc to make them #MyMinnetonka? Show us your Minnetonka style on Instagram for the chance to win!

What’s your Minnetonka story?
Minnetonka has been carried in our store for over 35 years.  We have a strong focus on comfort footwear and Minnetonka fits right in.  It is one of those classic American brands that everyone seems to not only remember from their past, but a brand they still love to wear today.

What is the most popular Minnetonka style in your store?
It’s a tie between  the 3- Layer Fringe Boot and the Kilty Moc.  We’ve also started carrying more of the spring product recently which has been extremely popular. We are really looking forward to the fun colors available this upcoming spring!

What’s your favorite pair and how do you like to style your mocs?
Brittany had a hard time deciding between the Front Laced Knee High boot and the Double Fringe Side Zip!  She  loves to style her Minnetonkas  with either leggings and a cute top, or with shirt dresses.

Geof’s favorite pair are the Moosehide Classic Mocs.  According to him, the great thing about Minnetonka is you can dress them up or down as needed. They go great with jeans, slacks or shorts.

What are a few must see destinations near your store?
Well we can’t go without mentioning that we are located right outside the Florida State University campus, home of the 2013 National Champions.

We have the Tallahassee Burger Trail, a list of local restaurants serving the best hamburgers around.  Go to any location on the trail and you’ll be satisfied!

We also have several great music venues around town including the Bradfordville Blues Club, a historic landmark in Tallahassee that has hosted nearly all the great blues bands around.

And Club Down Under an on campus venue in the FSU Oglesby Union that regularly hosts great bands.  One of our employees sings in a salsa band there pretty frequently!

Teysen’s Moccasin Shop is a third generation business, currently owned by Greg and Vicki Teysen.

Teysen’s has carried Minnetonka products for over 60 years and we’ve always enjoyed the variety of styles that Minnetonka has offered.

Being in the Midwest’s premier tourist destination, Mackinaw City, the travelers who visit Mackinaw (as well as locals alike) have always been attracted to Minnetonka’s mocs, boots and slippers.

Pictured here are owner Vicki Teysen, employee Barb and manager Kelly Myers. All three have worked at Teysen's Moccasin Shop since its opening!

What is the most popular Minnetonka style in your store?
Currently the Kilty in taupe is our most popular style, but all of the Kilty colors are definitely customer favorites.

What’s your favorite pair and how do you like to style your mocs?
My favorite pair of mocs are my dusty brown Kilties.  I like to style them casually with either jeans or capris.

What are a few must see destinations near your store?
There are a number of must-see destinations near our store including two Historic State Parks in Mackinaw City, a restored Historic Village west of town and an International Dark Sky Park.

Along with the Mackinac Bridge, Mackinac Island, Tahquamenon Falls and the Soo Locks.
