Daily Threads and Giveaway Winner

top: c/o megan nielsen, pants: gap, shoes: vera wang {similar}

 

First thing: how amazing is this top? My sweet friend Megan Nielsen makes some gorgeous clothes. Some time last year, when I first came across her work, I was in love. I particularly could not take my eyes off of this top and last week I found it in my mail box! How sweet is she? Her new Spring Line should be debuting very soon! So keep an eye on her shop for when these gorgeous pieces are revealed. And keep up with her in general on her blog.

Second thing: white skinny jeans! My local Gap offers 40% of any one item - I'm not sure how long this will last, but I just realized I should make a trip there everyday to snag up some clothes all 40% off... duh. Ok, anyway. You all know that white, skinny jeans have been on my want list for a terribly long time. When the sales associate informed me of the discount, I had to. I felt like they were a bit tight, but four people in the store told me they were fine. So I just went with it.

Third thing: the Apothica $50 Gift Card ended on Friday and I am excited to announce the winner! So congratulations to Gina of The Crave to Save! Email me within three days to claim your fabulous gift card!

I sometimes feel bad scrolling through the comments to find the winner because I want to give everyone who entered a gift. But I can't. Keep checking in, though. I have a fabulous giveaway lined up for May and I'm also thinking about a giveaway of my most popular Etsy Shop item - the Turquoise Pendant!

Great jeans! They're not too tight at all. And Gap discounts are the awesome.

I have been dying to buy a pair of white skinnies too but was always hesitant!

you inspired me to do it! they look gorgeous by the way.
oh and the shoes...Yeah I stared at them for a loooong time, then drooled.

Gertrude said...

That top is so cute! I really love GAP but shipping to Malta is so darn expensive! xo

GoodFrameofMind said...

Ya, for wish list items! I love when Gap has ridiculous deals once a week! I'll have to check out the Gap white skinnies, bc I've had a hard time finding a pair that's not see-through :/

Little Lovables said...

love that top, the jeans look great, I don;t think I could pull them off like you do!

Hayley said...

SUCH a beautiful top. I love it! and gap, oh man, the one near me isnt the best. I had to tell them about the flashsale, then find an article online about it to show them. Wish they gave me 40% off. enjoy it for those of us less fortunate.

Holly said...

what a find! the white jeans i mean lol.... and yes they will stretch, gap denim always does. ;)

Sarah said...

I love how white skinny jeans look, but I don't know that I will ever work up the nerve to own some. You're rocking them, though, and I don't think they're too tight. And, of course, I don't need to tell you that your top is fabulous.

Stacey Kay said...

I just love this top on you. Great outfit!

It seems like I've been away for so long, I can hardly keep up with what's going on with you/your blog! Everything is so great...I feel like there's so much to congratulate you for (winning all sorts of cool contests, and having amazing blouses show up in the mail!!) Very well deserving!

Very jealous! My Gap said that the discount couldn't be used on denim. I really wanted to coral skimmers but they didn't have my size.

Lydia Marie said...

Oh man that top is cute. And you seriously look ah-mazing in those white jeans.

Tyra said...

You are daring hanging near all that red mud with white pants on!! Love the look friend!!

Mandy said...

Gap jeans are the bomb, and it's a shame I just recently discovered them. These white skinnies look great with the gray top and natural heels!

Virginie Lavallée Bélanger said...

Two things: Megan Nielsen is awesome and you look great wearing her design!

And you look fierce in those white jeans for sure!
