LOOK OF THE DAY: FEATURING GIFT AND GIVEAWAY WIN ATTIRE FOR A BBQ


Happy October, Blogland!!!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far! Last week, I said I would be posting a Look of the Day from the Ladies Night BBQ I went to and I'm here with just that!

This Look of the Day post is a little different because it doesn't contain a price breakdown, and this is because the majority of it consists of gifts and blog giveaway wins, which doesn't really make the price accurate, but I still did list each item.

For my birthday, my fiancé gave me a dress that he thought I would like, "looked like me" and was in a color and length I tend to wear, and kiddies, he hit it out of the park! It fits perfectly, comes to just above the knee, which is one of my favorite lengths for everyday dresses, but a little longer in the back, which is FAB, and is in one of my favorite coral colors that I love to wear in the summer...I feel like this color makes you glow and look a little tanner! :)

I have worn it a few times since he gave it to me, and gotten compliments too! It is so comfortable and can really be dressed up or down, but the bonus is that it has a shelf bra, something he knows I love...and just keeps things, especially a strapless bra if you wear it without a mini tank underneath, in place! You ladies know what I mean! LOL!

Oh and to the BBQ we each brought different sides to go with the burgers, turkey burgers and hot dogs that the hostess was making on the grill. So, I made a pesto, feta and spinach pasta salad with tomatoes that I thought would be fresh and a tasty compliment to the other goodies! :)
