(Almost) Chambray Shirt + {GIVEAWAY}

It's offically 12:01 on July 27th, so that means happy one month anniversary to the duckling! *cue music and dancing* This seems like a pretty big milestone to me, and though I'm not sure if it really is in the blogging world, I feel like this first month is something crucial. It's the start of something new. It's the very beginning where everything is fresh and undiscovered. It's when all the ideas come climbing in through your window at night and plop into your dreams with a big loud crash. It's also a time when people become discouraged, lost, and unsure. Thoughts float around saying "this is pointless" or "give up before you look like an idiot". Thankfully, I have a very supportive family, boyfriend, and set of friends who are always encouraging me. I also have a very supportive group of readers! Small though you may be, you are really what makes me think I might have found something I'm good at after trying on dozens of different things (and taking a lot of time to figure them out).

So, I have an outfit before we get on to the giveaway!



Ralph Lauren denim button up, Goodwill Outlet- 25 cents
American Apparel Disco Pants, online- $75
Jewelry, H&M- cuff, $1  necklace, $5
Ring, yard sale- 25 cents

One big thing I've seen throughout the Spring/Summer is the reappearance of the "chambray" shirt, which is basically a denim shirt, haha. Now, most of the ones that I've seen around actually have two breast pockets. Mine doesn't (which is why I included "almost" in the title), but I snagged it at the Goodwill Outlet back in January or so. If it qualifies or not, I'm not entirely sure, but it's super comfortable and a really easy way to look casually cute. Throw on a pair of white shorts/pants, leggings, or even a pair of jeans if you're feeling daring. I've not been able to work up the courage to try out the double denim look yet, but I think that's because I'm secretly holding out to be able to try it with a pair of boyfriend jeans I've been eyeing lately...

The disco pants have made a reappearance! A testament to their versitility again. The loafers I have on have some studding on the front of them, and I love them to death, but they're just a wee bit too small so they keep rubbing the backs of my feet :( I've only been able to wear them twice. I might end up selling them, so if you're interested, shoot me an email. (Please oh please excuse my weird facial expression in the close up. For some reason I was having MAJOR issues keeping my eyes open whenever the camera went off. I looked so drugged up in half of the pictures that they were totally un-usable, haha)

GIVEAWAY

To celebrate our one month birthday, I've got two prizes to giveaway! The first is this super cool cocktail ring that is so unique, and I am jealous of whoever ends up getting it. Great conversation starter, and a really great way to add interest to an otherwise everyday outfit. The second is this pair of very pretty mint/blue feather earrings. I have a pair of dark pink ones that ended up matching perfectly to my pink shoes, so I can't wait to pair them together!



Now, it's super easy to enter and there are up to 8 chances to enter! Just follow any or all of the instructions below, and bada-bing-bada-boom, you're entered! This will run until Friday, August 3rd, and two (random) winners will be chosen! The first will have their pick of the prize, and the second winner will get the second one. Best of luck everyone!

    1. Haha yup, I was at the goodwill outlet where they measure everything by weight and just charge you from that. I got a board game, velvet shirt, denim overalls, this denim shirt, and a skirt for somewhere around 3 dollars I think.

    1. I know! My only guess is that the person selling it just didn't know what to do with it. Lucky for me!
