What I Wore | '90s Floral Dress + Swell Caroline Giveaway & Review

What I'm Wearing
Black & White Floral Maxi Dress -- Laura Ashley (Hand-me-down from my mom)
Jean Jacket -- Express via Thrift Store ($8)
Mustard Flats -- Old Navy ($4)
McGuire Double Strand Necklace -- c/o Swell Caroline
Tote Bag -- JustFab ($18)
Anchor Post Earrings -- c/o Swell Caroline

Hello lovelies! Yesterday me & Gaby helped our mom go through her closet and clean out things she doesn't wear anymore. I rescued this '90s floral maxi dress Laura Ashley from my mum, as I thought it looked totally on trend for this year with the black & white floral print. Besides, when the dress is paired with the right accessories, it looks very current & cute, and not at all from the '90s. Which in my book, isn't a bad thing. I'm one of those crazy people who loves '90s fashion. Yep, I said it.

Too help accessorize my outfit I used a statement necklace & anchor post earrings from my August sponsor, Swell Caroline. Which is an amazing company, btw! The girls who work there are really sweet, and they wrote me the sweetest note when shipping me my goodies to style on the blog. They are definitely one of the best companies I have worked with.

      
Besides having classic, preppy, and on-trend (think J.Crew) type jewelry for sale on their website, Swell Caroline also has some of the cutest packaging around. If you love gingham like me, you will adore the little pouches that their necklaces come in. These adorable gingham pouches were a fun surprise, when opening up my package once when it arrived in the mail.

How would one of you like to win one of these necklaces that I have worn on the blog? Well, to enter the giveaway just leave a comment below with your favorite thing from Swell Caroline. Once you have done that, you can earn more entires by using the rafflecopter widget.
