Congratulations to Angie from The Work At Home Wife. She is walking away with a brand new dress from The Shabby Apple!

Blog Conference season is most definitely upon us. In just a few short weeks, the girls and I will be headed to San Diego for BlogHer, and then it is onto Chicago, Denver, and Atlanta for Bloggy Boot Camp.

And like any good blogger, the inevitable question presents itself:


What am I going to wear?

That’s why, for Day 2 of our spectacular Birthday Bash, we’re solving this problem for you! Today’s giveaway from the Shabby Apple is sure to have you looking and feeling fabulous at your next blog conference (or any other event)!

what to wear out

Say hello to the Gondola Dress from the Shabby Apple!

Borrowed from the boys, navy blue sailor stripes are oh-so en vogue, and the Gondola dress is a prime specimen. A springy green, capped-sleeve top tucks into the wide-cinched waist, and a full circle skirt drops just below the knee.  This fresh summery take on the perfect vintage silhouette pairs perfectly with espadrilles and a sun hat, or a scarf and Fellini-esque sunglasses.  Dress is made from very lightweight delicate fabric, is not lined and has a very generous fit.

If you’ve fallen in love with this dress like me, then leave a comment telling us your favorite item in your closet right now.

For extra, optional entries, you can leave a separate comment saying that you:

Good luck!
