Guest Blogger: SeeKaylaGo (& a Giveaway!) [CLOSED]

[This giveaway is closed]
This week I’m off on vacation in Disneyland celebrating Peanut’s 2nd birthday! I have a few awesome guest bloggers lined up for the rest of the week and I think you’ll love them! First up we have Kayla, who is one of my best friends in real life. If you look through my refashioning label, you’ll see her name pop up all the time because she’s the one from whom I stole all the clothes that I refashioned. 
She’s here today to share her favorite wardrobe items, and do a giveaway!
_____________________________________________
Hey Guys!  I’m Kayla from SeeKaylaGo and I’m so thrilled to be guest posting here at Merrick’s Art! 
I originally started my blog because I woke up one day and realized I hadn’t been dressing for myself for the past several years. What does that mean? Well, I was dressing for what I thought my husband thought I should wear. Or what was easiest to wear. Or what I picked off the rack and thought could only be worn one way. I wasn’t looking at clothes in the way that I should have: as an avenue to express myself and as a way to have fun! 
So, SeeKaylaGo was born and I literally donated three quarters of my wardrobe {but you all already know this, as Merrick was able to make some super cute things from my throw-away pile πŸ™‚ }. Getting rid of that many items was super liberating, but it also meant I needed to rebuild my wardrobe from the ground up. 
Today I’m going to share with you 12 {can’t live without} new items since rebuilding my closet.
My List:
1. Striped Tee {H&M}
 2. Chambray Shirt {F21}
3. Dot Cardi {Target}
4. Coral Tie-Blouse {Soel Boutique}
5. White Ruffled Blouse {Anthropologie}
6. Green Jersey Pencil Skirt {gift from Merrick}
7. Teal Skinnies {Joe’s}
8. A Great Fitting Pair of Dark Wash Skinnies {7 for all Mankind had-me-downs!}
9. Bold, Oversized Scarf {Target}
10. Leopard Flats {Aldo}
11. Brown Flats {DV via Nords}
12. Classy Black Wedges {Tory Burch}
 
How many ways can I wear 12 items?
This was actually really fun because I realized I could wear any of the tops with any of the bottoms, switch up any of the shoes, and could’ve added the scarf to pretty much all of them.

This is fourteen different looks, not even counting the other outfits I could’ve made by switching up the shoes. Also, you could add different accessories to make even more looks! It is so awesome to be able to go into my closet and have versatile pieces I can wear in so many different ways. So if you are like I was, let me just say it’s never too late to start over and rebuild your wardrobe. You aren’t stuck with what’s in front of you. 

Okay, now for something exciting! To help get you started on rebuilding (or adding to) your own wardrobe, I’m giving away a bold, oversized scarf that I can already see working in a million different ways:
