Pink & Preppy {+ a giveaway!}.

Dress: c/o Seersucker Sassy Boutique {get it here!}  // Blazer: Ann Taylor  // Boots: Tory Burch {Last season, super similar for this season here} // Hosiery: c/o Hanes Hosiery // Sunglasses: H&M // Necklace: c/o Seersucker Sassy Boutique // Bracelet: {From the store I work at in Maine!} Ring: HJ Greek //  Lips: Liner is NYX lip liner in Rose, Lipstick is Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien 

     Few things make me feel happier and more productive then putting on a cute outfit for a long school day! I just always feel that I can accomplish more when I am dressed up. This fun pink dress that Seersucker Sassy Boutique sent me just screams "Classic Annaliese outfit." 

     To make this cute pink number more fall-esque (and also better suited for a school day), I decided to add some preppy touches to style it, including my beloved riding boots and new favorite blazer, and a fun pearl statement necklace (also from Seersucker Sassy Boutique!) to finish it off. My style can be many different things, and I do enjoy experimenting with different trends, but preppy looks are always a style favorite that I'll return to! 

     Seersucker Sassy Boutique is being so kind as to give away one of their Braided Pearls Necklaces, which I am wearing in this post, to a lucky reader of my blog! This necklace adds such a fun twist on wearing a traditional strand of pearls- perfect for adding a modern yet preppy touch to any outfit! This giveaway will run until October 16th, 2015.

      I just have to give a quick shout-out in this post to one of my best friends, Mia, who took these incredible blog photos for this post! Seriously- how amazing is the lighting and photo quality?! Mia was my roommate for the spring semester last year, and she went through sorority recruitment this fall and just became an ADPi. Somehow though when we lived together I never knew that she had some mad photography skills!! Luckily now I know! ;-)

Mia and I as roommates last year.

Bid Day just a couple of weeks ago!

     Best of luck entering the giveaway sponsored by Seersucker Sassy Boutique! Hope that y'all will have a wonderful weekend! It's Fall Break for my college- I'm excited to be heading to Asheville for an overnight trip this coming Monday!
