Lace shirts, sea shells + Oakleigh Rose Style Giveaway & Bloggers Who Have Inspired me link up

May 19, 2015

Thank you everyone for the lovely Birthday wishes in my 30th Birthday post yesterday (read Here).  I had a good one and am just feeling the love all around. God has truly blessed me with such a wonderful blogging community, family and friends and I couldn’t ask for more. You guys or gals are awesome.

I have been loving all things lace lately and have actually added quite a bit of lace detailed items to my wardrobe this spring, from my white Birthday dress I wore for yesterdays post here, to todays lace number that I can’t wait to show you.

Recently I won a gift card from Jacqueline to Oakleigh Rose Style Boutique where I recently purchased two lovely lace detailed tops. Today I am showing you two of them together and tomorrow I will show you how I styled just one of them. I am wearing a lovely chiffon blouse called Island Chiffon Top (from the Curvy section). This lovely chiffon top is AMAZING! The front top and sleeves show just the right amount of lace and adds an elegant touch. The material is strong and simply amazing to touch. I counted five compliments on this lovely chiffon blouse alone from people at my church. Underneath this lovely chiffon top is this a lovely camisole with lace scalloped detailing at the bottom trim that you was just as comfortable to wear and the material is soft. (see the exact camisole here).

I choose to pair this lovely blouse and camisole with skinny blue jeans cuffed at the ankles and an older pair of cognac flip flops for a more laid back look. I felt like I was on vacation at the beach in this get up so I choose to pair it further with anchor and pearl long earrings and my new beach shimmery inspired charm bracelet from My Arm Charms for an added sea and vacation look. The bracelet is even discounted for $9.99 too so you NEED to check it out because I love it.

This new bracelet is just adorable with real sea shells as charms, a mix of pearls and gold sea stars with inlaid pearls. Now what could say beach and vacation more than that, this bracelet is a “charm.” 

 I have enjoyed shopping with Oakleigh Rose Style boutique and have even been in back in forth communication with the co-owner Maeghan whom has been so kind to offer one of my readers a $25 gift card to their boutique. Not only has her offer been so kind, but I have enjoyed Maeghans genuine passion for her customers and blog partners alike. Thanks Maeghan for this collaboration!

 Now on to the featured five from last week and link up:
 irenefloralskirtIrene linked up a lovely skirt that she styled with a cute edgy black crop top and black high heeled sandals. While her skirt is several years old I just loved how she pulled it out to style it for the blogsphere. I have “known” Irene since I first started blogging and I love her classy, retro and feminine style. You can check out this post here.

Amy linked up an edgy but fun mothers day outfit. She inspired me to think outside of the box on holidays such as mothers day. When I think of mothers day I think of moms dressing in floral or feminine pieces but Amy choose to add some edge to her outfit wearing pleather and all black to church and to celebrate mothers day in all black style. You can find out more of how her mothers day went and the deal she got on her skirt here. sherrybridge   Sherry linked up a great statement dress that she has obviously fallen in love with from her recent Gwyniee Bee (or sizes 10-32 clothing box set subscription). Like Stichfix this is a service you can subscribe to and get up to 3 items in a box that if you are curvy like me you can try for a month or buy and return what you don’t want. I may have to try this. See the post here. 9thingsiwillneverblog I just loved Andrea’s post on 9 things she would never blog about. I loved some of the witty humor in this post as well as the justifications and heartfelt reasons why somethings are better left unsaid or unknown. You can see what those 9 things are here. Spouse Della posted a great post that serves as a reminder to all of us who are married on some tips to remembering and spending time with our spouses. I loved gathering a few ideas and being reminded of how important our partner in marriage really is in our lives and how we take that for granted sometimes. You can read her tips here.
