Casual Outfit, Giveaway, and a Link Up with Co-host!

4:00 AM

Top:  Banana Republic (online similar here) // Shorts:  Marshalls (Old) // Shoes:  Converse (ThredUp)  Similar // Tote:  Ewa Bazaar this is the giveaway item

SO MANY THINGS ARE HAPPENING TODAY!  We have a giveaway, a link up, and a co-host.  Ewa Bazaar and I will be giving away the above Ralph Lauren tote.  Whoever the winner is will get to choose between the two colors pictured above.  As you can see I have the purple one.  I use it every day for work.  My cousin uses it a lot as her actual purse, and the best part is since it’s so big you can use it as an overnight bag.  There’s also a zipper so you don’t have to worry about your things popping out.  Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to enter into the giveaway.  Make sure to enter in all of the options because I will be carefully checking each and every entry to make sure any mandatory options are followed and the more you follow, the more entries you get.  You can also enter everyday!  The giveaway will end in two weeks on July 6th so make sure you get all of your entries. 

Now, for today’s outfit it’s super casual because it was my weekend outfit.  It is starting to warm up here in Jersey and I’m LOVING it!  So, since I can finally fit into these shorts again since I started a healthier lifestyle I paired them with an off the shoulder top, and my new white converse.  Off the shoulder has been EVERYWHERE, and I’m sorry but this is a trend that I’m in love with even if it seems repetitive.  I’m actually very fond of my shoulders.  I know, I know, that’s a weird thing to like about your body, but I’m just a very strange person haha!  I'm keeping the writing portion of this post shorter than usual just because there is SO MUCH in this one post I don't want to make your head hurt!

Keep scrolling to enter into the giveaway!

Now, moving on to our co-host, Fonda from Savvy Southern Chic!

 Hi, I'm Fonda. I'm a creative girl who's discovered that the clothes in my closet can be remixed and that putting together new outfits is as much of a creative outlet as any other art form. When you're required to wear business wear most of your life in a conservative environment, it becomes a necessity to learn to mix and match to avoid boredom.  For years I've worn suits and outfits as if they were "uniforms", only to be worn one way. Then I discovered fashion and style blogs and all the great inspiration they offer.  While most of my outfits are business attire because I work in a conservative office, I also love sharing my casual off duty attire as well.  I'm excited to co-host with Monica today and look forward to seeing your outfits!

Now, moving on to the top 3 most clicked from last week!
