My New Favorite Outfit: Preppy

Monday, February 17, 2014


Today I'm feeling pretty preppy in this look.  I love cut of this dress and I've been wanting to layer a chambray with it for quite a while.  I decided to add my fun J.Crew Factory bow cardigan on top and I'm loving the result.  The weather is actually supposed to be making a turn for the better here, 50 degrees people! That means I can actually wear a dress without tights and not freeze to death.  I've really missed wearing a lot of my dresses and skirts, but it's been so stinking cold and I'm just not crazy about tights. 

You guys know I love a deal, so when  Coohpons asked me to share their fabulous discounts and promotional offers with you all, I was on board.  They offer coupons to stores like Gap, so you can find yourself a dress similar to the one I'm wearing today, Target, so you can "Buy All the Things," along with hundreds of other retailers. Happy saving!

Also, there are two link-ups on the blog this week!  First is on Wednesday called "Many Days, Many Ways." Link up a new post where you've taken a piece and restyled it many ways.  The link-up button is on my side bar. :)  The second link-up is on Friday called Style Swap.  Pick a blogger buddy to swap styles with and link up your looks this Friday!

  13. Two link ups in one week? Ginny, you impress me. Posting five outfits a week is exhausting enough for me, I don't know how you do it. But I like that you do :) I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with on Wednesday! Also, I adore that cardigan. It is just so stinkin' cute!
