It's Friday!!! Hallelujah! I'll tell you, the first week of no school just about put me into crazy mode. Trying to stay on top of blogging and my commitments while keeping my girls occupied has been quite the task. How many more days until school starts? Kidding...sort of.
Anyway, as you may or may not know I was awarded the ultimate privilege to be the 2013 Wallis U.S. Blogger Ambassador. Part of this amazing experience is getting to style different pieces from their brand, like this polka dot maxi dress.
Every month Wallis will be featuring a 'this month we'll be wearing' campaign where they pick the top 10 must have products for that month to help you with adding to your wardrobe.
Wallis knows we are busy ladies and short on time so they want to make it easier for all of us. They have taken the initiative to pick out versatile items that you can dress up or down and wear on numerous occasions.
And this maxi dress is one of them. I chose to layer a simple white oxford over this dress and also knot the bottom of it so that my flats wouldn't be hidden under the length. Knotting pieces such as tops, maxi dresses or skirts is a fun way to add a twist and create a fresh look to items that you already own.
What ties have you binded lately? This seems to have become quite the trend; one that can help extend all of our wardrobes. It's kind of fun, right?
Speaking of ties that bind, I have a few ladies that I have bonded with and wanted to share with your their blogs and shop. This is a new feature I will be doing for my sponsors in lieu of the monthly group giveaways. They are definitely worth the click and I bet you make three new friends.

Okay, Maira-Isabel from Agape Love stole my heart from the get go. Why? No, not because she is naturally radiant, but because she is a wife, mom to three GORGEOUS children and strong in her faith. We have so much in common, right? I want to be her new BFF. She chats about fashion, her weight loss journey and photography, plus a hundred other things. This girl is the total blogging package.
