How to add glam to your casual look. My life is 99% casual, and there’s rarely a need to even add lipstick unless I feel like it. But don’t you enjoy getting a shot of glam into your everyday looks? Me too.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
The chambray wrap top (similar) is by Loft via Poshmark. I adore this color, it’s just like the sky on a clear, cool day. Even though it’s a casual piece, I love the way it fits and flatters. Style tip: use a wrap shirt or dress to create a waist, if that’s a look you like.
The deep emerald eyelet lace skirt (similar) is also from Loft (retail!). It’s a perfect year-round piece in Florida, as it looks sweet in the winter with an ivory pullover and boots (what are boots??). Lace also adds glam to any look, even if it’s just a hem or cuff.

Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for
your blog. You have some really great articles and I believe I would be a good asset.
If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write
some material for your blog in exchange for a link back
to mine. Please blast me an email if interested.
I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without
a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something relating
I saw your publications earlier, but this one I believe the best.
