It’s hard to believe that Fall is here already. Especially round these parts where cool weather feels like it’ll never come. To kick start this wonderful season of holidays, cinnamon smelling things, pumpkin everything, sweaters, boots and more, I thought we’d have a little challenge.

Wearing a blouse or shirt over a dress is a great way to not only add layers, but it’s also a perfect way to mix textures and/or patterns. Plus, it might help you get out a fashion rut or find a new use for some articles of clothing you’ve had hanging in your closet for a long time.

I want you to put together an outfit with a blouse, shirt or vest over a dress over the next two weeks and email┬áme a picture of your lovely self at thegirlwiththesmileblog@gmail.com. If you’re okay with me sharing your creation, I’ll be posting readers awesome outfits on Friday, October 3rd, 2014. If you’d like, you could also take a pic and post it on instagram and hashtag it #blouseoverdresschallenge.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!! ­čÖé

Age Is Just A Number

I turn 33 today and I am determined to make this an amazing year. I’m going to focus on being healthy, getting in shape and spending as much time as possible with my boys. I met someone the other week and after talking to her, I guessed that she was five or so years older than myself. It come up in conversation that she was only a year younger than me! That same day, my coworker (who is 25) was mistaken for an 8th grader! Age is only a number and after you turn 20, I think it’s hard to determine really how old someone is. All this to say, have a youthful mindset, take care of yourself and be happy because that makes the biggest difference in how old you look. ­čÖé
