I Feel Pretty | Formulaic + Big News!

BIG NEWS!

I’ve got some big news, ya’ll.  But I really need YOUR HELP!

UK Clothing brand Wallis is preparing for it’s first US launch.  They’re holding a contest to find a US ambassador to represent their brand.  My little blog got picked to be in the competition with 28 other bloggers!

ME, a mom of three that’s almost 40.  I know the odds are against me but…

It’s a voting based competition.  Since I’m not one of the bigger blogs, I really have to rely on you guys to come through for me.

It takes three clicks and is super easy to do.  Just go to the Wallis Facebook Page, click on the pink Blogger Ambassodor Contest box under the header,  then find my entry and vote for me.

Or you can simply click HERE to go directly to my page and vote!

I will have the opportunity to create an outfit using Wallis fashion in the coming days, so stay tuned!  Until then, I would love it if you could please drop by and vote for me.  You can vote once a day.

THANK YOU!!!

Now on to this week’s outfit.

I am a firm believer in formulaic dressing.  It makes putting outfits together effortless.  When I find an outfit formula I love, I stick with it!

So, if you think today’s outfit looks vaguely reminiscent of last Wednesday’s, then you’d be right (and pretty observant)!

Both of these outfits employ the same formula.

Spring Outfit Formula

Blazer + Trendy top + Colored skinny denim + Statement necklace + Great wedges

[Seersucker Blazer (on sale)/Cuffed Skinny Jeans/Floral Tank (on sale)/Wedges (on sale)/Bee Earrings/Necklace]

Remember the knock-off J. Crew wedges from Target that I told you about in this post?  I snapped them up on sale over the weekend.  Get yours HERE while they last!

It’s Your Turn:  What’s your favorite outfit formula?  Tell me in the comments!

 

I Feel Pretty

It’s time for this week’s I Feel Pretty link party but first let’s take a look at last week’s Pretty of the Week.

She’s Lindsay of Lindsay J. Everyday!

Lindsay is a girl after my own heart in her own version of the spring outfit formula!  Her cobalt blue blazer, trendy lace top, statement necklace, awesome wedges and pop of pink make for a perfectly stylish transition into spring.

  • A blazer, boots, jeans in winter and a pencil skirt, cute top and heels in summer are my uniform. I always feel pulled together wearing either look. I love your blazer and top paired together too!

    Congrats on your nomination too. That is so exciting!

  • Great outfit! Perfect for Spring. Love your colored denim too!

  • I LOVE your outfit!! And the fact that it’s from Target is even better!! The blazer and top look so cute together!

  • Formulae are about knowing what works for your shape so I say go with it! Then if you get bored you just learn a few more basic formula to add in to the rotation 🙂 Thanks for sharing with WW xo

    Congrats girl! Good luck. 🙂
    I love your spring formula. 🙂 I don’t really have a formula, but I love anything with a colored bottom and stripes. 🙂

  • Hey Alison, congrats on the nomination! I’m heading over there now to vote! I like your formula idea. When you break it down, it’s basic….however, your looks always look so individual. Bravo!

    Love those fun spring capri’s. So cute!
    I have that Target tank top, love how you styled it!
    I will vote for you as soon as I get home from school (facebook is blocked at school. boo!)

  • CUTE outfit! I love, LOVE those colored skinnies. I think I may just have to make a ‘grocery’ trip to Target. You see how that works? Skinnies included in on the grocery list. Good luck! Voted!

  • It’s good to have those go to basics that you can rely on to feel pretty, especially when you are short on time or get a last minute invite. Great idea!
