My Must Have Items + Gussy Sews Giveaway!

Chambray: Madewell | Dress: Madewell | Tights: Forever 21 | Boots: Famous Footwear | Cowl c/o Gussy Sews | Clutch: Rouge + Whimsy | Bracelet: J.Crew

I debated forever over whether I should get this grey Madewell dress or not.   After seeing my pregnancy twin and blogger friend, Chasing Davies, wear it a couple of times and then realizing that the store only had one dress left in my size, I had to get it, and I am SO GLAD I did.  I’ve already worn it twice since I’ve got it a few weeks ago.  I can’t wait to try it every single one of my button down shirts, polka dot ones, chambray ones, gingham ones, tartan ones, all of them HA.

And the chambray shirt?  Well you KNOW that’s a staple and it was about time I got a new one.  I’ve worn it twice a week since I’ve gotten it.

Let’s talk about the accessories.  A polka dot clutch, you knew I had to get one since I need to own everything in polka dot print, tops, sweaters, pants, scarves, and of course a clutch.  This one is lovely because it’s colorblocked with leather and I think it’s just gorgeous.

Finally, I am in love with my Gussy Sews cowl.  It’s soft, it’s warm, it’s high quality and I LOVE the way orange pairs against grey, so I had to do it.  I like to do the double circle myself, but you can certainly wear it with a single circle around your neck too.  Oh hey, and do you want a cowl of your own or any other Gussy Sews product?  You are in luck… because she’s giving away $50 credit to her shop, right here, right now.  Boom.  Happy day!

  1. My favorite Gussy items is the tiny tulips medium zipped pouch. the color combo is beautiful! Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. And I’m so glad you got the dress, too, because you look adorable. :) Now we’ll just have to not wear it out to the same events at the same time – because that is so something we’d do! :)

  3. Wow, Sandy! You look absolutely stunning! I love how you chose to wear a topknot, it instantly makes this outfit more girly. I love how you incorporated a dress and some color into this fall outfit as well – you look lovely! x

  4. I’m trying to grow my hair out and one of those ruffle headbands might just be the thing I need to distract everyone from seeing that awkward middle stage I’m in! :)

  5. My favorites are her infinity scarves–I love the color you’re wearing and the yellow one! I’m glad you like your Madewell chambray–I can’t stop wearing mine!

  6. I have a very similar dress, but I hadn’t yet figured out how to make it work for winter. Now I know!

  7. I love how cute her ruffled medium zip pouches are! They fit a few diapers and wipes perfectly and are a much cuter diaper bag accessory.

  8. Love all of her products but really love the infinity cowls!

    Thanks for a chance to win your fun giveaway!

  9. I love the cowls too!!!! especially the moss envy & pumpkin spice colors
    Thanks for the great giveaway!
