30x30 Day 29: "Dressed" Up and a Button Swap

Day 29:

Earlier this month a lovely blogger asked me if I wanted to swap buttons to post on each other's blogs. I thought that was a great idea, except I didn't have a button. Well, my sister came to my rescue again and made me one. I thought it would be fun to do a free button swap for February, so if you're interested, grab mine and leave a comment, and I'll stop by your blog and do the same. Nothing better than sharing the blog love :)

Now, onto my outfit: I honestly can't believe how versatile this dress is? It works perfectly as a shirt today. Silly me had this put away with my summer clothes until I began searching for my 30x30 items. This challenge has really made me rethink what I truly have in my closet and how I chose to wear it. I feel like I need to get up on a soap box and teach about the power of restyling, but honestly that just sounds like too much work today. 

Also, I was nominated for the Leibster award again by Vita at PixieVita, stop by her blog and say hi :).

  18. I love that you wore the dress underneath the skirt as a top! Another genius idea from Ginny, I love it! Mr Bertie would love you and your ideas, I should take a leaf (or maybe a whole tree) out of your book! Lol.

    I now have your button in my sidebar (under my lists of blogs I love, which yours is one of yey) My link to my button is in my sidebar if you want to do the swaps? :)

    Have a great Friday :)
