Train Travelin' & GIVEAWAY!!!

I'm gonna make you hold out on the giveaway. How do you feel about that?
I guess you have the freedom to scroll down, but I assure you, you won't want to miss Husband's pick for today's photo location. I swear, the man is a location scheming MASTERMIND. I have no idea how he remembers these places even exist in our semi-sorry little "city." All I know is that I'm thankful for his eye, because I'd be having lots of blurry photos with my hallway as a background if it weren't for his talent and patience. So, Husband, if you're reading this (and I know you are), thank you a million times over.

Without further ado...
{side note... now many bloggers say, "Without further ado...?" a lot. that's the answer}

1960s inspired shift: Emma & Michele, via Ross (gifted by Rochelle)
I TOLD YOU SHE SPOILED ME TO PIECES!
cognac buckle boots: Silhouettes
stamped copper earrings: gift from Jen 

Warning: Photo overload. Couldn't help myself (or choose)!


Had to throw the blooper in, up there. I look angry, don't I? I promise, I was just tired of eating my hair. The wind is WICKED in North Carolina, today! Hands up if you love this dress as much as I do! My hand is waving, frantically, because every time I look at it, I love it MORE than I did the last time I saw it (read: 10 seconds before now).

And now... What you've all been waiting for!
To celebrate the milestone of reaching 300 readers this week, I am hosting a very special, very personalized giveaway!

First, I want to thank each and every one of you pretties that reads this blog. You all have inspired me to do better, go harder, and not give up when times get tough. You've seen me through some mini hiatuses, let me wear sweatpants, looked at blurry photos, and have stuck with me through even the most boring of posts. And to all of you newcomers, WELCOME! I'm so glad to have you, and I hope you're here for the long haul. Ask the veterans. I promise I can be funny, sometimes. I also am continuing to work hard to create a more reader-friendly page that is fun to visit and easy to navigate! 
Once again, thank you all for everything!

The lucky winner of my 300 Reader Giveaway will receive ONE from EACH category!

A $25 gift card from your choice of:

and...
TWO pairs of solid color tights (your choice!) from


Pretty darn exciting, RIGHT? Yes, that's how thankful I am. And YES, that's how much I love you!
