Link-Up: 2016 NPC Badge Day!



     Welcome to my second annual fashion post link-up on Southern Belle in Training for NPC Badge Day! (Check out last year's post here!) As y'all know, one of the highlights of my college experience has been getting to be apart of Greek life at my school. I'm a sister of Alpha Delta Pi, which is one out of the 26 Panhellenic national sororities. Every year, the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) hosts a day when women of all sororities- both collegiate members and alumni, are encouraged to wear their organization's pins and pin attire, and to celebrate being apart of the larger women's Greek community!

     As a sister of ADPi, I take so much pride in wearing the diamond shaped badge of my sorority. I know that sisters of other sororities also understand the significance of wearing their own pins! In honor of NPC Badge Day and to promote Greek unity in the blogging community, I decided last year to host an annual link-up where bloggers can share pin-attire inspired fashion posts, or other posts related to Greek life on NPC Badge Day. :-) Please feel free to join in the fun and link-up a relevant post!! I'm leaving the link-up open through this week.

     For last year's Badge Day outfit, I featured a very business casual and traditional pin attire outfit. This year, I wanted to show y'all the way that I normally dress for pin attire days or chapter meetings. My sorority holds weekly chapter meetings on Sunday nights. I often get dressed for church in the morning, keep my dressier clothes on all day (it motivates me to do homework!), and then change things up slightly that evening for my chapter meeting. See below for a perfect example of what I would wear on a Sunday:







     
     This gorgeous blue maxi dress would be perfect to wear to church on Sunday morning, for lunch with friends, and it's also comfortable enough for a day of homework afterwards! 







Dress: c/o Pink Blush // Cardigan: J. Crew Factory // Shoes: Rack Room Shoes {similar here} // Bracelets: c/o Jet Chic Arm Candy, Kate Spade // Lips: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie
  
     Later that day for chapter I would change up my accessories a little bit, and add a cardigan and pin to make it a little more conservative. This outfit is transformed from afternoon casual to pin attire appropriate!  


      My outfit details are linked above, and the NPC Badge Day link-up for all of you to link your posts to is below! And lastly: I have a fun giveaway for y'all :-) 

     Pink Blush is an online boutique that sells very fun and trendy fashion and accessories! (They also have a huge section on their website of maternity clothing- perfect for if you or someone you know is expecting!) I styled a gorgeous top from them in Saturday's blog post, and the dress that I'm wearing here is from Pink Blush as well. They are generously giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky Southern Belle in Training reader! This giveaway will run through Tuesday, March 15th, 2015
