Make it My Own Monday & exciting news

Morning all!
Holly and I picked out a pretty sassy little outfit for last week's MiMO Challenge


THIS very outfit, which I pinned a few months ago, was the dang reason for my wild goose chase, aka the great grey boot hunt of 2011.

However, I'd like to think it paid off!

I turned this very boring bit of cotton essentials....
Into this super cute (and awfully comfy) outfit!


If we're being honest... that grey dress is what I typically throw on in the summer as a swimsuit cover up.

I also belted my blazer, added the plaid scarf and some wrist bling to kick it up a notch.


Grey Dress: Forever21 (few years old)
Black leggings: Target
Blazer: Charlotte Russe (few years old)
Boots: Elle (from Kohls)
Scarf: Forever21(few years old)
Belt:NY&Co (few years old)
Watch: Michael Kors
Daughter Bracelet: Brighton (gift from my momma)
Silver Bracelet: ForLove21

And also some exciting news....
We have had such rave reviews about our MiMO Mondays that Holly & I have decided to make it a link-up for anyone else who wants to join in on the challenge and Make it Their Own! 

Your mission:
Take this outfit and Make It Your Own at some point this week...

Then come back to either Holly or I's blog next Monday to see how we made it our own, and then add a link to your post showing us your twist on it too! 

We're really excited to see everyone's unique versions on the outfits every week!

I'd love to participate in a link up like this... but I think I'd rather it be a "pick your own" pin or outfit and recreate it, ya know?
