Guest post: Ally of Life As I Know It

Today, Ally is taking over the blog while I am away. She is fabulous and I couldn't be more excited to have her here! And how fabulous is this look she put together! Perfect Paris look.
 

Hey guys I'm Ally from Life as I know it. I'm taking over for Jessica today while she's in gorgeous Paris with her mom for the week. I don't about you but seeing all of the amazing places Jessica gets to visit makes me uber jealous! She and her husband have had some awesome opportunities and I love following along on their journey through her blog.  

She told me I could post about anything so my mind automatically went to fashion. I'm a Registered Nurse as my real job but if I could have any job I'd love to work in fashion. Maybe it's the fact I wear scrubs everyday but assembling outfits and shopping is my passion. I decided to put together a simple but cute outfit to wear whether you're touring Paris like Jessica or walking around your own town.

First I chose this adorable Chambray shirtdress. I love how chambray is a neutral and you can wear it for any season. Madewell makes the softest denim so I'm sure this dress will feel like you're wearing you pj's. With the sun beating down on your head a hat is a necessity. This cute bucket hat would shield your face from the sun while still looking chic. I can't rave enough about the Cuyana Leather tote. I own one in this caramel color and it goes with everything. It's the softest leather and I love that you can personalize it by adding your initials. I'm sure Paris is a bit cooler temperatures right now than where I am in Charleston, SC so I figured a cute scarf could protect you from a cool breeze. I love how this scarf has so much going on with the pop of red and the polka dots. Lastly, you need a comfortable pair of flats. I have yet to try a pair of Tieks but I have heard nothing but great reviews. A pair of bright red shoes are just what this outfit needs to bring it all together.

Hope you're having a great time Jessica and I know we all can't wait to see pictures of your trip when you get back! Thanks for having me! xoxo

I just recently started seeing Tieks everywhere and have been super intrigued - the fact that they are so compact makes it so much better! I love the scarf!!

Very cute outfit Ally!! I love the mix of the blue and coral. I've also heard a lot about Tieks and how comfy they are.

Love the colors of this outfit! It looks so comfy and cute! I reached out to Tieks before our Europe trip and they offered a 30% discount, really wishing I had taken them up on it now!

I could totally wear this right now in the city! I want to know what Tieks are all about why do they have to be so expensive?!

Rebecca and Lori said...

I love this look! I can never seem to find a chambray shirt dress long enough for me, though. I'll have to check out Madewell.
