Blogging Essentials Giveaway Part 2 and a Nasty Gal Faux Fur Coat

This has probably by far been my favorite coat this winter. (Don’t worry, it’s faux fur!) I got it when Nasty Gal was having a discount on their new arrivals, so I was so excited. I wear it ALL the time! I definitely wore it to Sundance 🙂 It’s probably the only reason I will be sad when it gets warm. Even though it’s March, I would highly suggest picking one up before you miss out!

Also scroll down because I have part two of the Blogging Essentials Giveaway for you guys today!

Albion Fit Giveaway!

Today I am really excited because I get to introduce you to one of my favorite brands: Albion Fit! Make sure that you enter the Rafflecopter Giveaway below because one of you will be lucky enough to win a $50 gift card to spend on whatever your little heart desires from Albion! There is also another surprise at the end of this post, so make sure you check it out!

First of all, whether I am working out, trying to be comfortable while running errands, or lounging on a Saturday, Albion Fit has the most comfortable clothing! Their leggings are seriously the softest, but most supportive things you’ve ever put on. I say supportive, because you’ll never get that “are these see-through” or “can you see my cottage cheese” in these feeling like you do with some leggings. I’m literally obsessed with them. The shirts and jackets are amazing too. Soooo soft. I love them. Not to mention they are adorable and very high quality.

 Albion Fit also strives to be environmentally concious. They are committed to the environment and making their facilities greener each day by recycling and using earth friendly products.

I love Albion so much, that I have another outfit coming up this week too because I couldn’t decide which products were my favorite, so keep your eye out for another post coming soon!

I cannot wait for it to be warm. I have a little bit of a transitional outfit today as well as a Transition to Spring Giveaway where you can win $150 in paypal cash to go towards your new spring wardrobe!

I fell in love with this skirt and it was a no brainer, have to have that buy. Surprisingly I just keep thinking of so many ways to wear it. I was a little nervous at first. I literally would wear this every day if I could. I just love the bright color of it!

Cozy Striped Sweater

Ok, first off, I am in love with these photos that my friend Brittney Johnson from Haizel Creations did for me. Be sure to visit her website because she takes beautiful photos and can pretty much do them for whatever you need! She is also a fantastic videographer. Take a look at her Vimeo page here to see more of her video work! Plus I just love her to death!

This outfit is just super comfy and perfect for February, when you don’t know if it’s going to be freezing and snowy or crisp, but sunny. I love a good oversized sweater.

‘Ily’ Classic and Lace Skirt

I know, I know…I’ve worn this skirt so much! But I love it! I promise you won’t see it for a while unless I post some of my family photos. It’s just so versatile! I dressed it up in these posts, but I made it super casual for today’s and that is why I am in love with it! I threw this on to run errands when I was in California because it was so hot and I literally only packed jeans and winter things. So luckily it totally worked for a casual outfit too! P.S. It’s on sale at J.Crew right now and they have two colors (see link below)!

Also, this is one of my favorite sweatshirts. I wear it all the time because it is soooo comfortable. Simple and “classic” 🙂 Ha I’m so funny. It’s from Ily Couture and I love all of their apparel. Always cute and always so comfy!

Just a little post because I’m getting excited for spring! I can’t wait to wear tanks and shorts! I know it’s only February and I’m going to have a bunch more wintery posts I’m sure, but I took these when I was in California (as you can see by the guest appearance of Tika, my puppy). It was soooo warm. I just want it to be sunny!

This tank is from Recycled Consign & Design. They have the cutest things at their shop. They always have very unique styles and prints, so I highly recommend that you check them out!

My REAL Valentine’s Outfit

So, I will preface this by saying that I snapped these pictures outside of my office in like two seconds, but I just loved this shirt so much that I had to show it off. My friend bought these for all of us for V Day and I thought it was the best thing ever. So, I didn’t really dress up all cute or anything. This is what I really wore for Valentine’s. (Confessions of a blogger…we’re not always dressed up…shocking huh?)photo 3-8 - Version 2photo 1-9 - Version 2photo 4-5photo 4-6photo 3-10
