Ann Blanche Spring Giveaway!


Today marks the first official day of Spring. 
(Can I get an Amen up in here?!) 

Today is actually twice as special for me because this long-awaited first day of Spring is also the Persian New Year! 
During our new year we visit with loved ones, eat way too much food, and exchange gifts. So, to celebrate this tradition of gift-giving (and since I can't feed delicious Persian food to all of you), I figured-- why not host another giveaway with the one and only Ann Blanche?! 

One lucky gal will win a beautiful pair of Ann Blanche flats AND a gorgeous summer scarf. Just use the Rafflecopter app below to enter.

Happy Spring, friends! 


The small print: Giveaway ends on Friday, March 27th, and is open to U.S. and Canada residents only. Winner will be announced on the Hello Gorgeous Facebook page and must claim prize within 48 hours. If prize is left unclaimed within this time, a new winner will be chosen.

Turtlenecks + Hope.

It's that time of year again--
The time when it feels like it's been Winter for approximately twenty seven months.
The time when those of us living in cold climates have worn the same sweaters and pants and tights for months on end.
So, what's a girl to do??
Pair cozy tops with fun bottoms that give you a glimmer of hope for warmer months to come, that's what!
Spring is right around the corner... I can feel it!

Ann Blanche New Year's Giveaway!-CLOSED.


Usually I'm not a big proponent of of New Year's resolutions. I think making big life changes should happen when you're ready and not necessarily because it's the turn of the calendar year. But, something feels different this year. 
I'm excited about turning over a new leaf and I actually have a whole list of resolutions. Most of them are uber exciting things like: be more organized, don't save a task for tomorrow when you could do it today. And the always popular: get back in shape. 
(Although, to my defense on the last point, my gym unexpectedly closed this past Fall. Not being able to lift and do BodyPump anymore was absolutely devastating. But, one of the gym owners just opened a brand spanking new gym. So, I can't wait to get back into the game and regain the tone and muscle that I've lost!)

Like many, one of my other resolutions has to do with personal style. In 2015, I want to continue having fun and experimenting with fashion and my everyday style. And what better way to kick off this particular resolution than by giving away a pair of gorgeous ballet flats from Ann Blanche?! 
One lucky winner will be able to *step* into the new year with a pair of these fabulous flats! (Seriously, they are SO cute & versatile.) Just use the Rafflecopter app below to enter. 

Good luck and Happy New Year, Loves! Here's to an amazing 2015!
(P.S. I will be back to regular outfit posts soon!)


The small print: Giveaway ends on Friday, January 9th, and is open to U.S. and Canada residents only. Winner will be announced on the Hello Gorgeous Facebook page and must claim prize within 48 hours. If prize is left unclaimed within this time, a new winner will be chosen.

Work & Play.

It's been years since I have bought more than a handful of clothing items that were strictly for "play". Due to my very exciting night life (or lack thereof), almost everything in my wardrobe tends to pull double duty. If I can't use a piece as part of my work wardrobe, it's very likely that it will hang out in the back of my closet for a very long time.

However, with a little creativity, many things can be fashioned into workwear.
A chiffon dress? Great! Let's put a sweater over it and make it work appropriate. 
A fitted pencil dress? Let's put an oversized cardi over it and belt it.

I guess it must also be said that my office environment is pretty casual. So, I often use the term "work wear" loosely. Regardless, the idea still holds true. Pieces that can be used in different situations often give the best bang for your buck--easy peasy day to night transition is where it's at!
