A Dress Styled Over Skinny Jeans | Aspire Style Challenge: Please Vote For Me!

Aspire Style patterned dress layered over skinny jeans
This dress layered over skinny jeans is what I wore at the weekend and is also a style challenge entry - as you lovely readers helped me win one in April, I was hoping you'd vote for this outfit too...! I simply need as many "Likes" as possible on the Aspire Style Facebook competition page :)

I was contacted to see if I wanted to take part in a dress styling competition for the brand - five bloggers have been challenged by 
Aspire Style to create an outfit based around a dress from their site. I chose the Louche Zaza tropical bird print dress which is a great piece for layering over skinnies and has a gorgeous print - the black floppy hat and the strappy heels are the perfect finishing touches. I feel more than a touch Rachel the Hat in this outfit; I think I was subconsciously channelling the Welsh beauty when I put this together!

So if you like the way I've styled it...



The winning blogger will receive a £250 Aspire Style wardrobe that I'll be offering in a giveaway as a thank you!
