Pretty Posing

* Dress – H&M * Pumps – Jessica Simpson * Earrings & Bracelets – Forever 21 *

Okay so I have been SUPER excited to wear this dress I
bought while I was in Orlando a couple of weeks ago.  I am sure if you
have been reading my blog for awhile you know I LOVE stripes!  However, this dress was a little bit too
colorful for me, but I was coerced into buying it anyway.  I am trying to incorporate more color into my
closet so this piece was perfect even if I was iffy about how it would really
look once I decided to wear it.  
Since we are having summer time temps this week today was
the perfect day to bring this baby out! The material is very light, and the
dress isn’t lined.  I almost wore my safe
shoes, my Jessica Simpson platform sling backs, just my luck they were in my
car, lol.  So I grabbed my sparkly
Jessica Simpson d’orsay platform pumps and they matched perfectly.  I wish all of my outfits came together this
Okay, now for the good stuff! I have cleaned out my closet
and I have some goodies to give away. 
This is what I am thinking.  I
will list the items here randomly to keep it fair and the first person to
respond to answer my question in the comments section would receive the item.  You must be a follower via Google Friend
Connect or email subscription (and yes I will check). This will be
open to US followers only.  Lastly, you
must email me a picture of you wearing the item you won! Okay, I think this will be fun, you guys let me know.  If
there is no interest then everything will be donated to Goodwill.
