We’re ALL celebrating this week because this blog would be nothing if it weren’t for all of you. Pinterest Told Me To turns 2 this week (on Wednesday), and I have all of you to thank,
so we are partying this entire week!
But seriously girls.
Thank you for reading, thank you for commenting, thank you for e-mailing, and thank you for just being so dang sweet.
AND thank you for telling your friends and family about this blog.
Growing a blog is really tough, and you have all made it so much easier and WAY more fun!
I mentioned last week on THIS post that I had reached out to Piperlime to see if they wanted to participate in the birthday celebration this week, and they agreed!
They sent me some goodies (that you will get to see today!)…and….wait for it…….
They are giving away TWO $250 gift cards!
1 reader will win 2 gift cards: 1 for herself, and 1 for a friend.
And before we get started on today’s outfit….Piperlime is featuring some must haves of their own this week. Click HERE to see all of their must haves and enter the code “MUSTHAVES” for 25% OFF until Wednesday!!!!!
And I’m not sure if you know this about Piperlime, but it’s FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS with NO MINIMUM PURCHASE! We LOVE you for that Piperlime!!!!
Now what did Piperlime send me that I’m featuring today?
THIS dress, THESE shoes, THIS watch, and THIS jacket.
Sometimes I put an outfit together and it doesn’t live up to the expectations I had for it, but that wasn’t the case with this outfit at all! I absolutely LOVED it when it all came together.
I also loved the pieces on their own too!
I’ve been wanting a striped dress for a sweet forever, so when ordering from Piperlime, the dress was a no brainer. I wanted to get an entire outfit, so the leopard flats were a MUST of course (stripes and leopard together are always good!),
and I thought the jacket would give the whole outfit a little bit of edge.
I’m wearing a small.
It was a little boxy on me when I was wearing it by itself, but to be honest, I like shift dresses like this that aren’t clingy. When it comes to dresses, I actually like boxy and short! I know it sounds weird, but I think it’s flattering to my figure.
Still, if you are worried about the boxy nature, just put a denim or leather jacket on with it.
When I put the jacket on it gave me a waist and some shape.
I’m 5’4″ and it was short on me, but like I said, I like my dresses short.
And here’s the best part….THE DRESS HAS POCKETS!!!!!!
And who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?
Nobody. That’s who.
This dress is more money than I would usually spend on a dress, but it’s so well-made and versatile that I do think it’s worth it. A GREAT staple piece!
(Just imagine it with boots and leggings!)
Click HERE for the dress c/o Piperlime.
Click HERE for a very similar jacket option that is fully stocked, still a great price, with a 5 star review!
If you can’t tell from the picture below, I totally dug the outfit. 😉
So anyway, I headed outside.
Even though it was August.
And even though I live in Texas.
It was 97 degrees.
At 2:30 p.m.
And I was on my front porch.
In a leather jacket.
Yep, I’m crazy.
Oh mama the shoes.
You ladies better prepare yourself that these babies are going to be my GO TO flat for the fall!
(And if we’re being honest, I’ve already worn them twice this summer,
and I’ve only had them a week!)
AND I JUST REALIZED THESE ARE INCLUDED WITH THE MUSTHAVES CODE WHICH MAKES THEM $15 OFF!!!!!!!!!
That means they are ONLY $45!!!!!!!!
BUY THEM! BUY THEM NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They run true to size.
THIS watch was a bit of a departure for me (I usually go for the big and chunky bands), but it has definitely become my favorite watch of the moment. The face is still quite large (which I love!), but the band is dainty and feminine. It’s the best of both worlds!
And I love that if I don’t want to wear any bracelets, the wraparound band is still jazzy enough on it’s own. It’s a really great watch!
It comes in this pecan color below and black. I love the cut of it!
Similar jeans at Piperlime HERE (Joe’s jeans ON SALE now, but not an additional 25% OFF) and HERE. Click HERE for all designer jeans that are 25% OFF right now with the code MUSTHAVES.
Similar booties at Piperlime HERE from Steve Madden.
I thought I would remind you of some of my past outfits with pieces from Piperlime.
Click HERE if you want to see the original post that includes links to other items in the outfit!
And if you remember, the black lace top I highlighted last month was also Pim+Larkin.
It’s already on sale, and another 25% OFF with the code MUSTHAVES!!!!!
And it comes in cream (which I LOVE!) and lavendar too.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
I’ve now worn the top a handful of times, and can say that my “risky”
purchase of adding a lace top to my closet has totally paid off. It
really sasses up a pair of jeans and is great for a girl’s night out or a
date night! If you’re new here, click HERE if you want to see me style the top in several different outfits, and you’ll see why I absolutely adore it!
The high scalloped neckline is so pretty, and the black lace is sexy!
Want to see some of my other current favorites at Piperlime right now?
I have LOVED every single thing I’ve received.
Now…some of it is a little out of my price range, but a lot of their stuff is totally affordable, and in your searches you can specify the top of your budget so you won’t waste time browsing through things that are out of your price range!
I’m thinking Piperlime is going to be added to my FAVORITES list.
(And let’s be honest, that’s a short list with Nordstrom, LOFT, and Anthropologie.)
