Chambray 3 Ways : meet Sue & a GIVEAWAY :

Happy Monday, friends!
I hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend!  I still can't believe Summer is half over... I've already started back-to-school shopping for the kids!  And... a little "just because" shopping for me too.  Got to take advantage of these end of the season sales, right?

Speaking of shopping, Sue is here with a great fashion post AND an awesome giveaway!
Sue has been a bloggy friend for a long time now... probably one of the first bloggers I felt I had a connection with when my blog started taking off.  I am so excited to have her here today and I KNOW you'll ADORE her as much as I do.

Hello to the awesome readers here at Lena B, Actually! I'm Sue and I write about life and other things over at As It Seems. I want to tell you a secret: I am not a fashion blogger. So why am I doing a wear post? I still love fashion and more importantly, I love feeling comfortable in my clothes and still looking good. Five months ago I gave birth to my darling daughter, Everly. Since then it's been a new challenge to find clothes that look good and feel good for my post-baby body. To add to the excitement and stress of life, we moved a month ago from Japan to Utah. I have nothing but a suitcase of clothes because all our worldly possessions are being shipped to us. So I end up wearing the same things over and over. 

To keep things interesting I try and style them differently each time I wear them. And so I give you a favorite piece of mine, the chambray button up, styled three ways. I like to call it mom fashion. Easy, comfortable, cute.

I think maxi skirts are a must for easy summer fashion. They're like wearing pajamas in public. This is my new favorite. I love the asymmetrical stripes to give it a different feel than most maxi skirts. I also feel like a legit blogger now since I have a red floppy hat. I love to wear it in the evening when I take Everly on walks.

I love the pink shorts in this outfit. They're linen and so comfy/casual. Perfect for summer! These accessories are some of my favorites. Especially the headband- I made it myself! Don't you love wearing DIY items?

This last outfit is just a little more dressy. I wear things like this on date night (if it ever happens!) or out with friends. I'm a big fan of the high-low trend. I feel like it adds length to my 5'3" body and that's always a good thing.

If you made it through my outfit ramblings you deserve a prize.
One lucky winner will get a pair of lightning bolt earrings from Forever 21, a headband made by me (just like the one in the second outfit), and a $15 gift card to Target (since that's where my fab chambray shirt is from). Just because I love you. A big thank you to Lena for letting me share her space today and good luck in this little giveaway!
