AE: Bloggers Do It Better


Hi Lovely Friends. Last week, American Eagle sent the beautiful Cara of A Fashion Love Affair and I the same dress and asked us to style it in our own individual way for summer. Usually when I'm presented with something super girly, my instinct is to rough it up a bit, or pair it with something that will give it an edge, hence the leather jacket. I'm trying to dress more colourfully for summer (after wearing nothing but grey and navy all spring), and this dress does help accomplish that. You can click here to see how we both wore it.
P.S. I finally went through with it and cut my hair... what do you think?


Wearing: American Eagle dress, Muubaa leather jacket (similar here and here), Urban Outfitters purse (similar here and here), Sam & Libby sandals, Kate Spade bracelet, Givenchy Lipstick in Shocking Pink. xE

That's such a beautiful dress. The girlyness suits you so well, but LOVE how you edged it up with the leather jacket.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment earlier! :) I love your blog and you are so pretty and have great style! I really like how you edged up the girly dress as well, because I always think girly should be mixed with edge as well. Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by again.

I'm now following and hope you stop back again and follow too if you like! xx Pip
