Today marks the one-week countdown to my first-year blogiversary. No fooling! This is a hodge-podge kind of post, so stick with me. (Details about my first giveaway are at the end.)
First up, my (belated) entry for “Bloggers do b&w stripes better,” the latest Bloggers Do It Better challenge. I wore this casual combo this past weekend, on a glorious 75-degree, sunshine-y Saturday. This outfit was also inspired by this look from Seersuckers + Saddles.
And I am amazed at this hair flip shot that Sam was able to capture — cracks me up!
I wore flats and rolled-down sleeves on my way to pick up Sam from the airport, as it was a bit cooler in the morning. But when we went shopping for patio furniture later in the afternoon, I switched out my flats for black strappy wedges and rolled up the sleeves on my cotton jacket.
Details: Striped dress: Old Navy, new and gift-carded / Red jacket: Macy’s, new and gift-carded / Flats: Payless, last summer / Strappy wedges: Target, last spring / Tote bag: Christian Siriano for Payless, winter
I call this one, above, “Secret Agent Jen.” You can also see the way the stripes on this dress make a chevron detail on the sides. And below is a shot of our new patio furniture! 🙂
My first giveaway!
To help celebrate my one-year blogiversary, I am giving away a $25 Old Navy gift card, which can also be used for Gap, Banana Republic, Piperlime, or Athleta (in-store or online). This giveaway isn’t sponsored by Old Navy or its affiliates; it’s an e-gift card of my own that I will pass on to 1 lucky winner.

But wait! There’s more!
Also starting next week on my blogiversary, Erin @ Loop Looks and I will be embarking on a week-long “Mutually Inspired Series,” recreating looks inspired by each other that hopefully will inspire you, too. 🙂
Erin and I have done this a few times already (see here and here), but we’ve about to take our mutual inspiration to the next level! I’ve been busy pinning possible inspiration looks, but I’m asking y’all to help me with the final inspiration look. So please vote below for your favorite outfit of Erin’s, and I will then recreate the winning look next week.
Thanks in advance for helping me out! 🙂
