Layered + Blog Design Giveaway!!


 Crave Boutique Dress c/o // Madewell Top (save, splurge) // Sole Society Pumps c/o // ASOS Faux Fur Snood // Citizen Watch c/o // Reece & Blaire Bangles c/o // DV Italy Pearl Necklace via Chicpeek c/o ($10 off with boswell10)

I love trying to find new ways to wear things to help maximize my wardrobe.  I have this exact dress in red and wore it here, so I wanted to challenge myself to wear this one in a completely different way.  This dress is one of those flattering styles that look good good on everyone.  The faux wrap style elongates the torso with the v neckline, and the long sleeves are slimming.  I have worn both of these dresses out to dinner with Shane, to work and to a work function.  I love how versatile it is also.  Layer it with a button down underneath and a scarf, and it immediately updates the dress and makes it look like an entirely different outfit.  I have also worn a pencil skirt over it to make it look like a blouse and skirt.  I think this outfit would even look great for a holiday event.  Do you like layering your outfits to help create a completely different look?  
 

Today I have teamed up with Chris from Hubby Jack's Blog Attack, aka Mr. Holly, to give away a new blog design!  Chris first designed my blog almost a year ago.  I don't think he really knew what he was getting into because I think it has been an ongoing project over the last year (I'm a tad bit OCD.)  Every time I had an idea about a new item I wanted on my blog or something I wanted changed, I would email him.  He recently gave my blog a little more of a nip and tuck this weekend, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.  I decided to stick with the same header and just have it resized a little as I absolutely love the header that he created for me and don't really want to change it.  He added some new gadgets on the side and changed up my pages also.  He was great about coming up with great ideas but also listening to everything that I had to say (which was a lot.)  = )  Make sure you enter the giveaway using the rafflecopter widget below, and good luck!

  14. Choosing outfits in fall/winter is always harder for me. I love to layer, but I can find myself using the same layering option over and over. Love the way you mixed things up here with a collared shirt underneath the wrap dress!

  40. I have to admit I am terrible at layering. I try though.... i guess it has to do with the fact that i dont need it that much as where i live its warm all year long. Although my office A/C is another story.
    I'd love to have a blog overhaul, my blog is quite primitive.
