Day 10 (14 + 15 + 20)

15 Striped long sleeve top + 14 reversable birthday dress + 20 high heeled docs =

Day 10 (14 + 15 + 20)

Today is day two of our two day Living Paper Doll Project (if you think you would enjoy it, please let us know, I think we plan to try and do another round before the 30x30 is done!) and I am styled by the lovely Liz at 26 and Counting. (Liz is Styled by Suze, Suze is styled by me)

HOW CUTE IS THAT? And honestly? This outfit would have never, ever crossed my mind. I love to layer, but I tend to layer out, and this shirt under a dress look is more layering in, if that makes any sense at all...

Day 10 (14 + 15 + 20)

The tee is so cozy and soft under the dress, and so warm. Even belting it was Liz's idea! And stripes and floral together are basically my favorite pattern mixing of all time. OF ALL TIME!

Day 10 (14 + 15 + 20)

And now, today's poem:

Day 3 poem

I have to admit, if I were even a little more awake I would have gotten that. But I literally wake up to Nathan saying "Turn your light on" so that I can read the poems and am still pretty bleary eyed and brain dead when I read them.

A hand for my rings! (ETA for Suz, It's from Urban Outfitters) I had specifically asked for something like this so I knew as soon as he handed the tissue paper package to me what it was. I love it. I even put my rings on it this AM before I got dressed. (And then I forgot them, but that's just how I roll.)

Not to toot my own horn or anything {toot toot}, BUT you look amazing! I absolutely love it all! And I love your hair pulled back.

Can we do this again? It's been so much fun!

Melissa said...

Stripes and florals, stripes and florals! Holy cow, you look fantastic! I really love this combination on you. That dress is awesome on its own, too!

I'm loving these little poems. You guys are so sweet. :)

Love the outfit. Also, if you and Nathan wouldn't mind sharing, where is that hand from?? I collect hands (which my fiance thinks is creepy, but I digress) and I also study palmistry.

missvinylahoy said...

Um, yes, Liz. Toot your own horn. So cute!! I love that this isn't something Erin would usually wear, but it LOOKS like her, you know? Very cute, comfy and WARM!!

Ana - Better in Sepia said...

Love the outfit, the shirt "in" really is unexpected! I would love to participate, where do I sign up?

You know what's funny? Nate and I saw that hand at Urban Outfitters a couple of days ago and almost bought it!

Suz, Urban Outfitters. The one online doesnt have the cool markings like this one so I guess you have to get it in store!

grace said...

I really really really really want to be someone's paper doll. It would make my 30for30!

Elissa said...

A great job goes to Liz! I love the dress belted with the striped shirt underneath. And Nathan continues to deliver...what a great gift for a jewelry lover.

I love the idea of you guys styling each other! Totally mixes things up and doesn't require a lot of thinking on your part...well at least for yourself. :)

overcaffeinated said...

Ooo, love the floral, studs and stripes together. I don't think I could pull it off, but you definitely do!

Great present from your DH, and I love the idea of Seven Days of Valentines. Need to introduce this concept to my DH. LOL

Rebecca said...

Nathan has been picking the cutest presents for you. A long sleeves shirt under a dress is one of my favorite layering combos.

Keely said...

Love this! The stripes and florals are just perfect together. You and Suze and Liz are too freakin' adorable.

Futurelint said...

Super cute look and your legs look so long and lean today! I feel like I always forget the "layer under" thing too... I always just put cardigans over dresses but really need to try them with shirts underneath!

Amanda said...

Very cute outfit! It would never have dawned on me to pair these pieces up together but they not only work well, they look great on you!

Kyla said...

I love that shirt under the dress! Good pick by the ladies!

myownlittleuniverse said...
