Your Summer Style Contest

Skirt by Kate Spade

Summer is just around the corner. In fact, it hit 88 degrees in Arkansas this past weekend. Which leads me to believe that this summer season is going to be hotter than ever.

…and I don’t just mean temp-wise. I know there are some stylish ladies and gents out there who read this blog and I want to see them!

The Contest

You’ll have one week to compile, style and model a summer-inspired outfit. It can be a dressy look or a super casual look, whatever you feel like wearing. You’ll then model the outfit and have a friend snap a pic of you in your outfit.

Next, you’ll email A Blonde Ambition at askblondeambition{at}gmail{dot}com and include:

·         Photo of you wearing your look (MUST be full body – gotta see the shoes!) Must include who took the photo and a link to your blog (if you blog)
·         Description of what inspired the outfit
·         List of where each item came from

Example of how a submission should be submitted:

Photo:   Self-taken, my blog is A Blonde Ambition, www.blondeambitionblog.com
Description:   I was inspired by seeing a similar outfit in J. Crew's S/S12 Lookbook
Items:  Shirt by J.Jill, Necklace from Belle Boutique, Skirt by H & M and Shoes from Target

I’ll then post the first 30 submissions to A Blonde Ambition’s Facebook page.  (I say first 30 only, just because I have a regular job/laundry/reality TV/husband/dogs, etc. and don’t have the time it takes to upload eleventy hundred looks to FB. Sorry, y’all.)

The Rules

1.     When sending your pic and description via email, YOU MUST include the following words in the footer of your email:

" I (insert your first and last name) give permission to A Blonde Ambition blog to post my photo to the ABA Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/ablondeambitionblog, as well as to the blog, http://www.blondeambitionblog.com "

-          Entries excluding the footer will be disqualified. Sorry. I've got to cover my rear when it comes to legal stuff.

3.     All submissions must be turned in by Sunday, April 9th. Voting will begin on the evening of Tuesday, April 10, 2012 and will end on Friday, April 13th at 11:59 p.m. CST.

4.      Contest is only open to U.S. residents.

5.      This is totally open to non-bloggers, too. And also open to guys! I know there are a few male readers out there, so feel free to submit if you’re a dude with style, too!

How to Win

1.      Send your friends and family to your pic and have them “Like” it. Each “like” counts as one vote.

2.      For an extra point, have them “like” A Blonde Ambition’s FB page and leave a comment telling me they did so.

What You Win

-A GORGEOUS white statement bracelet.

-A feature on the April 18th Trend Watch Wednesday where we’ll talk about your look, what inspired it and how others can replicate it.  It will also link readers over to your blog (if you have one!)
