Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1 { Blog Tour + Giveaway }




I am so excited to be the next stop on the blog tour for Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1 - a collection of some of the best and most favorite designs from the Kelbourne Woolens archives. I absolutely adore the photography and styling of this book, it's such a treat to flip through. 
 Courtney and Kate took a really fun approach to the tour and have asked us to create an outfit around our favorite piece from the book using Polyvore. I found it challenging to choose just one item from the book - there were so many that I could imagine in my daily wardrobe. I decided to go with the Springtime in Philadelphia hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn - it's casual and fits my style well....

This was my first time using Polyvore and I didn't really anticipate how engrossed I would get in the process! I had so much fun choosing my outfit and spent way too much time deciding which bag and shoes to wear... you can even add your favorite nail polish colours, it's endless amounts of fun!

Would you like to win your very own copy of the book? Simply leave a comment below for a chance to win a signed copy! I will announce the winner this Friday, good luck!!!

...jump on over to Stephannie Tallent's blog this Thursday to catch the next stop on the tour.
