a {giveaway} with le cou…(NOW CLOSED)

Le Cou

Le Cou

I have always wanted to be one of those girls who could pull off the layered look with a collared shirt under sweater, but I always find it to look too bulky. I was recently introduced to Le Cou who makes the modern version of the dickey. When's the last time you heard anyone say "dickey"?!? They not only make a collared shirt version but a bunch of other really pretty and chic styles as well. I also love that when your body changes (pregnancy, post-partum, etc.), these pieces go with any other clothing you are wearing in whatever size you're wearing. So that you can experience the wardrobe possibilities these pieces add, today we've partnered with Le Cou to give away TWO pieces of your choice to three lucky readers (up to $180 value per winner). Here are some of my favorites below…

  1. Adore the wakefield in blue gingham and the Miette in Cream!
    I have wanted one of these forever! I think they are also brilliant for nursing mamas (which I am, at the moment) to look a little more put together without having to unbutton a shirt under another shirt. I miss layers! I never win anything but since I have been online stalking these for a while I had to try, anyway 🙂

  2. The Wakefield in white — such a genius take on a classic look…. Though the Wakefield in gingham is a close second.

  3. The wakefield in petal pink is so pretty and I love the royal blue gingham, too!

  4. The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray or the Olympia in Midnight – both so chic with a modern twist. Love them all!

  5. I love the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham, and the bows are beautiful too! I’d have to have the Anika in Dark Blue Chambray.

  6. This would be the perfect birthday present to me, as my birthday is by this Friday. Fingers crossed.
    Olimpia in petal pink would be glorious!!!!!

  7. LOVE the collection of Olympias – but my favorite is the Petal Pink – so flirty!

  8. For my style, the most versatile would be the Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray, and Olympia in Midnight!

  9. All of these are great but if I had to pick just two, I’d go with the polka dot chambray and olympia in petal pink.

  10. Love them all, but if I won, I’d choose the Wakefield in white and the Uma in Tile. Great giveaway!

  11. Love Love LUUUUUV the Olympia in Petal Pink.. I need that prettiness in my life!!!

  12. aww this was my idea that i never went for! i’m sure everyone says that. i love the wakefield royal blue gingham and olympia in white!

  13. The Wakefield in gingham and white for me! I actually have a dickie that came attached to a Tory Burch sweater. Gave the sweater away, but kept the dickie;)

  14. OK Joy, I just have to tell you that I went to the Website and bought the white Wakefield because I couldn’t wait to see if I won the giveaway. But if I did, then I would definitely get the gingham one!

  15. How interesting! I’ve always loved the layered look but get too hot when I try it! Awesome solution! I’d get the Olympia in Dark Blue Chambray and the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham. They should do a Men’s collection too!

  16. This is brilliant! I thought the same thing about feeling like layering button-downs under sweaters just feels too bulky. This is actually pretty hard! I think I’d try the classic Wakefield in White to start, even though the Wakefield in Dark Blue Chambray and Blue Gingham are adorbs.

  17. I want them all! But if I had to pick one, would be the Wakefield in midnight.
    Loving Le Cou!

  18. Dickey me UP! So cute. I am ALL over the Wakefield look. Crisp collars forever. Wakefield in any design – Blue Chambray, the amazing Geometrique, Polka Dot Chambray. Yes and yes! Thanks for the cute giveaway opportunity, Joy and Le Cou! XO

  19. Love this site! I’d go classic- The Wakefield in White or in Royal Blue Gingham.

  20. Love, love, love the Wakefield in white and gingham. Such a great way to change up the look of a sweater or crewneck shirt. This is a much improved version of the dickeys I used to wear (yes, I’m THAT old!) in the 60s!

  21. Love the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham AND the Olympia in Blue Chambray – very Emily Henderson-esque!

  22. Being a busy Mom myself, casual chic (not that I’m very chic anymore…) is what I feel best wearing. Love, love, love the blue gingham!!! The black one is gorgeous too!!

  23. Ideally, I would want all that Le Cou has to offer. But the Wakefield in petal pink would go so well with my sleeveless black shift suitdress that I wear all the time for work!

  24. I would like the Uma in Tile and The Wakefield in Petal Pink. Or maybe the Wakefield in blue polka dot?? So many dickeys that I want! Thanks, Oh Joy and Le Cou – this is a great giveaway!

  25. The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray has a little edge to it yet it’s so versatile!

  26. I’ve been on the hunt for a good dickey for years! So excited to have discovered Le Cou thanks to this post. I’d love the Miette or Wakefield in any color!

  27. This is GENIUS!!!! I think I will do the Wakefield in White… Classic and will go with anything!!

  28. Probably the Wakefield in Royal blue gingham and the Wakefield in petal pink! They’re both so beautiful!!!

  29. The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and Polka Dot Chambry! Pure Style! ( No Cousin Eddie – from Christmas Vacation! :)!

  30. I would love to win the Wakefield in dark blue chambray or the Wakefield in the royal blue gingham. Both are amazing.

  31. OMG! Can I get all of them?!?!
    I would really wanna win the ‘Olympia in black&Cream Gingham’ or ‘Uma in Tile Edition 01:African Wax’
    *Fingers Crossed*

  32. Such a great concept! I love layering but hate how uncomfortable shirts are underneath a sweater. I would definitely do the Wakefield in polka dot chambray, Olympia in white, and the uma in onyx. I love the neckties too! The Anika is so chic! Honestly I Love them all!

  33. I have the Olympia in Black & Cream Gingham — and it is fabulous!
    So to add to my collection I would love to have the Uma in Tile
    Edition 01: African Wax and the Miette in either Black or Cream.

  34. I would LOVE the Olympia in dark blue chambray and The Uma in Onyx Please (If I’m lucky enough to win that is!) xx

  35. Olympia in pink. So beautiful.
    But also, the Wakefield in polka dot chambray.
    Really depends on the outfit.
    🙂

  36. I am in love!!
    If I’m the lucky one today, I’d be ever so grateful to have the uma in time and the wakefield in geometrique.

  37. I have been adoring mock shirts for a while now and I love love love Le Cou’s Miette dickey in Cream and Olympia dickey in Petal Pink! As if coming out of my cotton candy dreams!

  38. Eeeeks, I love all of these. I’d definitely go for a wakefield in white for a wardrobe staple, and for fun I’d love an Olympia, one in every color! 🙂

  39. Definitely the Olympia in pink! So sumptuous and regal, the Marie Antoinette of dickeys.

  40. These would really up my boring wardrobe! I love the Wakefield in polka dot chambray and the Olympia in black and cream gingham.

  41. These are great!! I’d have a hard time choosing between the Royal Blue Gingham and the Uma in Tile.

  42. I absolutely love the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham!! So cute. What a fun idea! I’d stock up on the Polka Dot Chambray too. We all know polka dots are a neutral 🙂

  43. This site is lovely. The Wakefield in Geometrique, the Anika in Navy Stripe, and the Olympia in Black/White Gingham are my faves!

  44. 100% need The Wakefield in White because, duh, classic and also need The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray. I want to be brave enough to wear the Olympia in White.
    This is my dream item. So happy you introduced me! It’s my favorite look, but like you said, it looks too chunky on me. 🙁

  45. The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and Uma in Onyx are such classic wardrobe staples for rocking the preppy, minimalist look. Totally appeals to the college kid in me! 🙂

  46. So hard to choose! I love the chambray! I’m coveting the wakefield in chambray or chambray with polka dots.

  47. The polka dot Wakefield is by far my favorite….but one can never go wrong with a classic white either! They’re all beautiful.

  48. Uma in onyx is solo chic! Miette in cream is stunning! And for good measure, Olympia in black and cream for some versatility!

  49. The uma in dark blue chambray and the Wakefield in the polka dot chambray! Love the retro vibe of these!

  50. I’ve always loved the layered look, but felt with my busty build that the extra layer overly-accentuated, and not positively. Plus I tire of adjusting and readjusting the layers!
    I like the the Wakefield in white, dark blue chambray and in royal blue gingham, as well as the Olympia in black & cream gingham.
    Thank you so much for the opportunity. Love reading your blog!!!

  51. I actually love the two you showed! The Olympia in petal pink & Wakefield in blue gingham ?

  52. Love this idea! Especially with summer coming up, since these would be great for warmer days and with summer dresses. I love the Miette in Cream and The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham.

  53. The Wakefield in polka dot chambray and the Uma in Tile: African wax print. They are all so lovely!

  54. Love how the Wakefield in Petal Pink and the Uma in Dark Blue Chambray both are classic yet bring their own personality in their own unique shades/colors!

  55. I’m so on board with the dickey!! I would love to wear the Olympia in petal pink under a soft grey sweater!

  56. I love the structure of The Wakefield in Petal, and the subtle romance of the Olympia in Dark Chambray. What a fun way to add flair to an outfit.

  57. Love le cou!! Already have the miette in black, but would LOVE the Olympia in gingham. Also love the African wax print color.

  58. I love the blue one!! It would be perfect with a mustard colored sweater and maroon colored pants!! I do agree about the bulky look..i am a small framed gal too, and it just looks like i rolled out of the dryer…this is a great option!

  59. I’m in love with the wakefield chambray polka dot, the uma in onyx and of course the gorgeous Olympia in black and cream gringham. Good luck to everyone

  60. Oh so pretty! I always feel trapped when wearing a shirt under a sweater. Those sleeves in sleeves, yikes! I would go for the wakefield dark blue chambray and the Wakefield in petal pink.

  61. The Wakefield in White!!! I love all of them, but would probably use the white the most 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  62. I’d choose Wakefield in White because it’s so classic and the Wakefield in Geometrique because it’s so different from anything I own.

  63. My favorite is The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray. Thanks for opening this giveway for abroad. 🙂

  64. The Wakefield in Midnight
    The Wakefield in White,
    Im going for the classics.

  65. I would choose the Olympia in Petal Pink and Black & White Gingham. Love that bow!! A bow neck without the bulk! ?????

  66. So hard to choose… The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gongham and in Polka Dot Chambray.

  67. Yaaay happy to have an international give away on your blog?? I would chose the Miette in cream and the Olympia in midnight.

  68. So hard to choose! I think I’d go for the Wakefield in White or Olympia in Petal Pink

  69. Such a cool idea! I would love the Wakefield in gingham or Olympia in white.

  70. Olympia in white is my favorite. I just love any bow detailing! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  71. Such such a cool idea! Love the Wakefield in gingham and Olympia in white. (Reposting from above because I typed the wrong email in that one!!)

  72. I love them all, but the Uma in tile and the Olympia in gingham are my most recent obsessions. Olympia in blue chambray, and Miette in black are always on display, they’re the perfect accessories to my wardrobe and my home decor.

  73. I think I’d get the Wakefield in white for a nice classic look and the African wax as well! I feel like it’s important for me to have a funky/colorful wardrobe since I have a little boy lol I wanna stay “cool”

  74. The Wakefield in gingham and white! I’m hitting my 2nd trimester so less layers during the summer will be great!! Thanks!

  75. Hard to choose! But I’d probably pick The Wakefield in Royal Gingham Blue and Petal Pink.

  76. I love the classic “Wakefield” in white – can’t go wrong with that staple. But also LOVE the look of the Miette. Tough choice and hearing “dicky” brings me back for sure!!

  77. The Wakefield in white! I’ve definitely made a few makeshift versions of these before, but they don’t look quite as nice! ?

  78. Miette in black, hands down no doubt. Though Olympia in gingham is a very close second. Gotta love a dickey!

  79. The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray is amazing! So many options to pair it with. Lovely giveaway, thank you!

  80. The Olympia in petal pink and the our first edition African wax print! So gorgeous and bold!

  81. I was going to go with the Wakefield in Black as a classic but I can’t resist the Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray – classic yet fun and fresh!

  82. The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray would look so cute under so many sweaters and dresses. A++

  83. The UMA in Tile — love the African print… and probably the OLYMPIA in black + cream gingham… gorgeous!!

  84. I’ll take Wakefield in Dark Blue Chambray and the Olympia in white, please 😉

  85. Wakefiel in blue gingham and the olympia in petal pink are two classic and stylish ways to bring a simple sweater to life =)

  86. I have fallen in love..
    Olympia in pink…
    I would share the prize to just have one…

  87. Oh my these are genius! i would choose the The Wakefield in polka dot and Uma in tile.

  88. I love the Wakefield in blue gingham and dark blue chambray – what a genius idea!

  89. Omg I’ve been looking for someone to make this! I perspire A LOT and can’t layer clothes… I love Olympia in petal pink & the Wakefield in royal blue gingham.

  90. A soon as I found out about this company I ordered 3 dickeys. That’s because I’m one of those people who’s always playing around with scarves just because like to have that one extra thing around my neck. Scarves looked great when I left the house, but a little (or a lot) less great by the end of the day. The dickeys proved to be the solution. They didn’t loosen and droop. They didn’t ride up from a sweater’s neckline. It felt like,” Where have you been all my life?” So I ordered 3 more. That said, I’m still craving the Olympia in Petal Pink and the Miette in Cream.

  91. It really is a toss up between the Olympia in petal pink and the Miette. They are so beautiful!

  92. The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and the The Wakefield in Dark Blue Chambray are fantastic!!! What a great company. Thanks for introducing it to me!

  93. These are wonderful! I especially love The Wakefield in white and dark blue chambray. So useful!

  94. The Wakefield in white and in polka dot chambray are my favorites, though Miette in cream is pretty stunning too!

  95. The Wakefield in Geometrique is unlike anything I’ve ever seen and I’d love to wear it everywhere.

  96. I like:
    The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray &
    Olympia in Dark Blue Chambray
    Perfect for the japanese Springtime! (^-^)

  97. The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and The Wakefield in white ?? so beautiful

  98. I already own two – the Wakefield in gingham and one in polka dot chambray – but would certainly love to add the Uma in onyx and another Wakefield in pink. Oh pretty please! I need more!

  99. I think the Wakefield in polka dot and the Olympia in chambray are both very chic and would make a great addition to my closet!

  100. These are so great! And as a lover of layers and someone living in Florida, light layering options are a find!
    The Wakefield in Geometrique Edition 01: African Wax is AMAZING! The Wakefield in Petal Pink is perfect and classic! Can I have them all, please!?

  101. I would choose the Olympic in black! So chic and cute. Where I am is way too hot for layering, even in winter.

  102. I’d love the Olympia in petal pink and the miette in cream! All our lovely!

  103. Definitely The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and The Wakefield in White. These are great and I love them! So practical and perfect for any woman! Ahhh they are just so beautiful!

  104. I would get the Wakefield in either the Royal Blue Gingham or the Dark Blue Chambray.

  105. I heart Le Cou! They’re all so beautiful, but Olympia in black & cream gingham for me 🙂

  106. The Olympia in dark blue chambray would be amazing! I come from a REALLY tropical country and have dressed down so much since having a baby since babywearing and anything more than a short sleeved top would make me sweat buckets. The Olympia would be a lifesaver!

  107. The Wakefield in Dark Blue Chambray
    Simple and can go with ANYTHING! thanks for the chance!

  108. Wakefield in white! Or maybe do it up with one with a bow?! I love the look, but hate the bulk, so this idea is awesome!

  109. My dreams of a preppy look postpartum may come true!! My favourites are the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and Miette in Cream. Fingers crossed. Xo Jenna

  110. I adore the Olyimpia in white and pink, and the Wakefield in dark chambray is not too shabby! ?❤️❤️❤️

  111. I just wore my LS denim shirt under a wool cable knit sweater and my coworkers loved the look! I would love to wear a dickey because yes, I felt a little bulky. The Uma in Dark Blue Chambray.

  112. The Wakefield in White – a classic! And then it’s a tough choice between the Wakefield in Dark Blue Chambray or Polka Dot Chambray!

  113. I think the last time I heard “dickey” was on 30 Rock.
    These are gorgeous! I’d never thought of updating th dickey to have glorious bow collars. Though if I had my pick,I’d probably gi with the Wakefield in Gingham. It makes a beautiful but understated accessory.

  114. Awesome idea for lazy days when you still want to look smart 🙂
    Loving the Uma in Onyx and The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham!!

  115. This is such a brilliant idea!!! It was so hard to choose just 2 but my absolute 2 favorites is the Wakefield in White (love love the look of a layered crisp white shirt). And the Olympia in black cream gingham!

  116. Hello !!! Thank you very much from France for this great giveaway !
    I really love the Wakefield in Petal Pink, so classy !
    And thank you for your blog.
    Julie

  117. So beautiful, I see the Olympia in Dark Blue Chambray with a chambra dress i would like to sew…. perfect to go with thé dress, thank you

  118. They are all great, but I have a small preference in the Uma In Tile & Uma in Blue Chambray! Thank you!

  119. Oh my… well, considering my current obsession with pink (Maybe it’s a hint that I’ll eventually have a girl? Hopefully!), my eyes immediately gravitated towards the Olympia in Petal Pink. I saw it on your Instagram post last night and was immediately ‘wow’ed!’

  120. I love the Olympia in any color. Really liking the Wakefield too. Who know dickeys could be so chic?!

  121. Oooh, how fun!! I would choose (1) the Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray and (2) Olympia in Petal Pink!! What a useful idea. 🙂

  122. I love the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham, I’ve always wanted one like this! It’s simple and casual, but also chic at the same time 🙂

  123. I love the Le Cou dickie I got through kickstarter — so versatile!
    The The Wakefield in Geometrique Edition 01: African Wax is really fun. And I love the Uma in all its fabrics/colorways — so sharp!

  124. What a beautiful idea this collection ! In love for the Olympia Dark Blue Chambray.

  125. I would love the Wakefield in pink or Olympia in…any color really! I LOVE this idea. Everything old is new again 😀

  126. Olympia in petal pink and Wakefield in blue gingham! This is brilliant! Have been having a hard time looking for these styles that fit, a dickey solves the problem!

  127. The Olympia in white and the Wakefield in Midnight are up high on my WISHLIST :)!

  128. The Olypmia in petal pink is an absolute dream and the miette in cream is so chic!
    Even if I don’t win, I’m going to have to have one of these. Great idea Joy – I am also a fan of the layered look, but not quite adept at pulling off the look without looking like I have added 10 pounds to my frame….

  129. They’re all so cute, it’s tough to choose! I think I’d pick the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and white.

  130. I love them ALL. But my favorites are The Wakefield in Polka Dot Chambray; The Wakefield in Petal Pink; The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham; The Wakefield in Geometrique
    Edition 01: African Wax (WOW)

  131. I would go with the Wakefield in polka dot chambray for everyday use and the Miette in cream when I’m feeling girly.

  132. So many lovely options! If I were to pick just two it’d be Olympia in pink and Wakefield in white. I’ve found layering is tougher while nursing – baby has no patience for me to take off and unbutton multiple things! Thus offers a great solution!

  133. Oh, that’s so great! I’d choose “The Wakefield in Dark Blue Chambray” and “The Wakefield in White”. They’re basic-but-not-so-much, at least for me 🙂

  134. The Wakefield in Geometrique Edition 01: African Wax is so cool! In love with that pattern.

  135. Oh my gosh, I have been waiting for these to be made! I always hoped someone would come up with this idea and now, thanks to you, I know about this company! I would absolutely go with the classic Wakefield in white. Thanks Joy!!

  136. These are genius and so stylish–def need the The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham & the Uma in Onyx

  137. Whooeee these are cute! The Olympia, as a nod to my hometown, and the Uma because of that notched collar in the back. Brilliant.

  138. The Wakefield in white AND blue gingham. (But oh how I hoped they had a Peter Pan collar!)

  139. Omg! The concept is brillliant! I’m totally in love with the Uma in Onyx or the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham.

  140. Omg! The concept is brilliant! I totally love the Uma in Onyx or the wakefield in royal blue gingham.

  141. Yes! I feel the same way – too bulky with a full shirt. I feel too constricted.
    I would love the Wakefield in White and the Olympia in Midnight.

  142. The Uma in Tile, for sure. I’m a sucker for colorful details with neutral overlays and this geometric pattern is to die for. Very Bauhaus 🙂

  143. I already have the Wakefield in white and love it. It seems to go with everything! The Olympia in white and the Wakefield Royal Blue Gingham are on my list to purchase, so a chance to win them just can’t be missed!

  144. I love these! I would definitely choose the Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham and the Wakefield in White. I love the layered look, but I always feel like things get bunched up and uncomfortable as I move throughout the day. These would totally solve that problem.

  145. I’d choose something classic like the Wakefield in white and something a little fancy like Olympia in white. These designs are so beautiful!

  146. OOOH! The Wakefield in African Wax has my name written all over it! I know exactly which pullover and earrings I’d rock with it, too. Then, for when I want to channel a Kehinde Wiley portrait, the Olympia in Petal Pink.

  147. love the wakefield in gingham or polka dot chambray! these would be perfect for my growing baby bump…such a genius idea!

  148. The Olympia in petal pink is amazing and romantic. It reminds me of this great dress my mom would wear in the 80’s when she was going out for a big night.

  149. The Wakefield in Royal Blue Gingham. This would be such a good addition to the wardrobe. SO handy for work. Thanks for the intro to the site (and I hope i might win)

  150. I love the Wakefield in Royal Blue and the Olympia in white. Thank you for this awesome giveaway!
