Getting things in the mail is a rare treat these days in our electronic age. Well, mail dreams came true when I found out a couple of weeks ago that I won a drawing for an article of clothing from Mihaela at Fashion Sky Fall. You can imagine how jazzed I was to receive the top in the mail! Mail! Clothing! Fellow blogger love! It was a big day.
Blogging is such an interesting way of connecting to others around the world and even in our own communities. I’m endlessly grateful for the support I receive from readers, and amazed at how we end up forming relationships with those whom we have not formally met. A blog is often a glimpse into someone’s life, and a welcoming of others to share in our journey. Mail, blogging, readers, comments…it really is a small world after all. How wonderful to share it with each other to make our worlds both smaller through connections and bigger through expanding our horizons and awareness of others. A thank you to Mihaela at Fashion Sky Fall for her blog and to all of you out there in the blogosphere for supporting one girl’s dream of being a fashion blogger.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I love white lace as an unexpected fabric for fall and winter. Lace really seems to be showing some serious staying power this fall and winter, as I’ve seen lace dresses all over the place in blogs and on Pinterest. I like to layer on top of the lace to stay warm, and also to make the lace piece look purposeful in the cool weather, not out of place. You know how I feel about transitioning clothes to all seasons whenever possible, and this top is definitely no exception. In spring and summer, I’ll pair it with capris or tucked into skirts. Many pieces can be transitioned; try to transition them before you pack them away for the fall and winter months!
2) When wearing fitted pants (such as leggings), I like to go layered on top to not look too “fitted’ for work. The lace top definitely added some length over the leggings, but I added the cardigan for even more length over the leggings. In a conservative work environment such as mine, leggings are not allowed as “pants” but you can wear them with long tops and sweaters. I don’t let the conservative dress code stop the leggings, but I do wear them with coverage in the form of layers! After all, I basically live in leggings in winter. Fleece leggings. Need I say more? They are real and they are magic. Get ready for those babies to be busted out on the blog pretty soon.
Anyone else sport leggings at work? Still wearing your lace?
Thanks for stopping by, lovely readers!

Congratulations on winning Mihaela’s drawing! Love that scarf btw! 🙂
Great outfit! Great minds think alike and have the same taste: I purchased the EXACT same cardigan from Mexx last month for $25!😉
Such an amazing outfit! I absolutely adore those boots!
Love the prize & love the blogging love!
You’re killing me with the layers. Even the necklaces!
Another perfect outfit.
I really love that top!
Lace is my thang – I love the top layered with the thin cardi! Blogging community is super sweet and supportive.
I love this entire outfit, but especially that lace top for winter. I also love the pop of red/wine with the neutral outfit. I need to grab a few tunics to wear over leggings for work. Come winter, leggings and boots are all I want to reach for.
I love your top AND your boots. Great choices!
What a beautiful top. It looks really great with the scarf colour. Congrats!

That lace top is gorgeous layered for fall. Perfect way to transition a piece that is otherwise thought of as spring/summer!

That top is beautiful! Congratulations 🙂
so cute! and so true about finding friends in the blogging world – the internet can sometimes be a wonderful place. 😉
Congrats girl! We really are twins, I won something too! Just waiting until it comes in the mail. 🙂 That shirt is beautiful! I really like your outfit today, it’s so femenine and fashionable. Your necklace is oh so delicate. And UH I always rep the leggings at work…when I can get away with it. I pretty much wish I could wear sweatpants to work every monday, when that feeling seems to strong to fight, or when I just can’t button up that pair of stretchy limited work pants I reach for the leggings. 😉 Also might I add that you are wordpress, you are everywhere haha it’s so funny I’ll think I’ve discovered a small little blog read and start reading through a few of their posts to go offer some inspirational motivation and then it’s like bam there you are haha, you are everywhere! You and your little blue skirt icon. So we should be thanking you for the support! 🙂
Haha! Well, I think it’s a team effort to get all of us to feel supported doing what we love!! xo
Wow thank you so much for this lovely post and you look gorgeous ❤ I hope you like it, it makes a great effect with the rest of your outfit ❤ Have a wonderful evening 🙂
