The LWD (and bonus award)

I found this inspiration photo on Pinterest and fell in love with the classic look. I just scored a LWD (Little White Dress) and needed a way to style it that was work appropriate. The LWD alone was sexy and form fitting, so adding a navy cardigan and cinching it with a belt gave it a classic and posh look.

Outfit Details:
Navy Cardigan: Target // Little White Dress: H&M (in stores now)
Belt: Old Navy // Nude Heels: Nine West

Also I was very excited when Ashely from Ashley's Passion for Fashion nominated me for the Liebster Award. She is such a doll so please do check her out! 
There's a few questions to answer for this award and then I will pass it on to nominate others.


1. Which blogger inspires you or you simply just love and cannot get enough of?
All bloggers inspire me in some way because I love seeing what other people are into, other's styles, hobbies etc. I think we can always learn something from others. But if I have to pick one it would probably be Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, since that was one of the first blogs I ever discovered and started reading.


2. What is your horoscope sign?
I'm a Leo with a birthday coming up very soon (August 4th)! I used to think I was a Leo to a T, and read my horoscope daily, but now I don't really follow that stuff too much anymore.


3. What are two quotes you love?
In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. -Albert Camus


Be the change you wish to see in the world. -- Ghandi


4. What is one thing this summer you must do, no ifs or buts about it?
Hmmm....pretty much anything on my Summer Bucket List. I think I'm doing a pretty good job actually of checking stuff off!


5. What are 3 words your friends would use to describe you?
Silly, fun, loyal.


6. What is one dream you hope to achieve in your life journey?
Land an awesome school counselor job (in the process of looking right now) and to become a successful life and style blogger : )


7. What is your favorite dish to eat?
This is too hard to answer. But I think I'd have to say pizza. What's that saying, even when it's bad it's still pretty good? haha


8. Who is one person that inspires you in your life?
Another difficult question. I don't think I can pick just one - but I believe my parents, friends and lovely bf are all sources of inspiration on a daily basis.


9.  What is one thing you are looking forward to this fall?
Um...EVERYTHING. Fall is by far my favorite season. Sweaters, boots, jeans, football, pumpkin flavored everything, changing leaves, halloween - bring it on!



10.   Favorite television shows that start up in the fall or now summer?
I don't watch too much TV but I am excited to Intervention and Hoarders to come back on. It must be the counseling/psychology side of me that loves this kind of stuff!

11. What are the top 5 places you want to travel?
-Italy
-Greece
-The Philippines (to visit family)
-St. Lucia (romantic getaway)
-Paris (for the fashion)


Well that was fun! Here are some blogs I'd like to nominate:


Olivia Moone


The Teacher Diva


Mr and Mrs Powell



Hope you all enjoyed the LWD look of the day and bonus award!
 Do you all own the LWD? How do you style it?

-Pretty Little Things

  10. Ohmygosh, so many thoughts... (1) I love your outfit today, the inspiration pic is great and you did an awesome job recreating it! Sometimes white dresses can feel too casual/beachy for work, but I love how you made this work-friendly :) (2) I love that invincible summer quote by Camus! (3) I LOVE Intervention and Hoarders too!!! My husband can't stand it, but I'm obsessed and watch them ALL the time. In another life I would be a certified professional organizer and work with Hoarders, I swear. (4) I've been to Greece and it was amazing - definitely go if you ever get the chance! And my sister went to St. Lucia on her honeymoon, it looked beautiful too :)
