I *heart* Elizabeth McKay {giveaway #1}


We all have that go-to dress in our closet for every season. The one that you can dress up or dress down. The one that is appropriate for almost every occasion. My go to dress for spring, summer, & fall?

{pardon the grainy cell phone image. this was taken circa may, pre-birthday, which meant new camera!}

After finding my perfect "go-to" dress, naturally I wanted to see what else the line had to offer. Upon first click I knew this line was for me. The updated style on classic pieces: perfection. I was super excited to find that I was listed & linked as one of Elizabeth McKay's "Blogs We Love."


In honor of Barefoot in the Park's 3rd birthday the kind team over at Elizabeth McKay has graciously offered to my wonderful readers a giveaway of a signature piece in the line, The Elizabeth Shirt in Elephant Print, Elizabeth's favorite animal!

How to enter:

1. Go to Elizabeth McKay's website, and leave a comment here with your favorite piece OR favorite thing about the line.

2. If you're a follower of BitP, you get an extra entry just for being you (just let me know!)

3. Winner will be selected at random (most likely drawn out of the big red hat pictured above by my lovely husband) on FRIDAY FEBRUARY 4th!

5. Good Luck!

After you fall in love with the line (I know you will) be sure to check back when they launch their new site on

2/15/11!:

It is so hard to say just one item is my favorite. I love most of the collection. I really like the Lindsay dress or the Scotland dress.

Pretty stuff, I've never been to her site before. I think my favorite is her famous The Elizabeth Shirt. And I'm a follower.

I have a shirt from the year her line came out that I absolutely love. It's navy with green stitching and about 20 little buttons down the front. It has ruffles at the shoulder, neck, and down the front. It was part of the inspiration for my wedding!

Of the new stuff I love the Lindsay dress.

Of course I'm a follower too!

I like pretty much everything as well. I really like the tall ruffle collars and as for dresses I'd have to go with the Scotland dress or the Grace dress.

1. I love that the line is so preppy yet cool, vintage yet modern. It reminds me of a not-so-bright more toned down version of Lily Pulitzer! Which is good! I love it!
2. I follow BitP.

I love Elizabeth McKay's whole line -- just got a pair of the Mint pants (in black with hot pink welting), and I love them! They fit like a dream, and the corduroy is oh so soft. My next favorite item is the Pimms top. So elegant yet fun!

I really am smitten with the BtoB dress - it would by fabulous for Bridesmaids I think and could be worn again too. I'm a new follower also!
