Shopping & Coffee!! Awesome Giveaway!!

There's nothing like updating your wardrobe for fall.  I absolutely love picking up some new jeans and a few sweaters to kick off this glorious season!  While fall is not quite here yet (and there's really no reason to rush summer out the door), it still would be silly not to take advantage of all of the back-to-school sales going on!  And just to help you out with that fall wardrobe shopping, I've partnered with a few other bloggers to offer one lucky reader a little shopping spree at gap!

one winner will receive:
$100 to gap
$30 to starbucks (because you need to fuel up for that shopping trip!)

I wouldn't be able to bring you this awesome giveaway without partnering with some fabulous blogging friends!  Each of these girls is so sweet and generous, and i hope you take a moment to stop by each of their blogs and check them out!

this giveaway will run for a week and a winner will be chosen at random and notified by email. 
all entries will be verified, so play fair!  good luck!

Transitioning into Fall

I guess if we are in August, its safe to go ahead and post about fall! I don't know about y'all, but I'm ready! I wanted to share with you some great fall trends for this years, but pieces that will help you transition during those days in between! This Fall, its all about bold colors, shift dresses, and plaid! 3 of my favorite things!!

Just by adding a pop of color to your outfit in a shoe, or bag is the perfect way to wear this trend if you don't feel comfortable walking around in bold color, head to toe. Y'all know I love a shift dress!!! They are just so comfy, you can dress them up or down and it's something that you can just throw on without thinking about an entire outfit. How can you not love this trend?! I'll be wearing them all fall! And plaid is back ladies! The 90's are knocking on our door and I'm not hating it! There are so many ways to wear plaid, and it doesn't have to look grungy. Find a plaid shirt in lighter colors, instead of the red and black that most people think of! Paired with boyfriend jeans and cute ankle boots, oh my gosh, I can't get enough!! Happy Monday!!!!

Confessional Friday

Happy Friday loves!! If your like me, all I want to do on this Friday is stay inside with little Daisy, watch movies/blog/be lazy. I actually love rainy days like today, except when I have to go to work. Which happens to be in 2 hours. But anywho, I am linking up with the super cute, Leslie, over at A Blonde Ambition to do Confessional Friday!

So in the words of Usher, These are my confessions:

1. I confess that I am so ready for Fall!! I hate to rush summer, but especially this week, with the weather being so nice, I'm ready! I can't wait for jeans, boots, scarves, beanies, crisp air, camping, football, and hot coffee! Can I get an Amen!!!

2. I confess that I have a dreamers heart. There are so many things that I want to accomplish or make successful, but I know that it takes patience and a lot of hard work. That whole patience thing is what me and God have a daily struggle with. I'm not good at it, and he is always testing me. I just have big dreams and I refuse to give up or feel like I "have" to do something for the rest of my life, that doesn't truly make me happy! Do what you love!!!

3. I confess that I really want a cute pair of Birkenstocks. Preferably these:

Or these

4. I confess that I'm trying to give up my addiction to Starbucks and just make my own iced coffee, but please let me tell you, it is not the same! I do not like it, and Brian is just going to have to come to terms with the fact that I spend $2.65 at least 4 times a week at Starbucks, and we need to somehow fit that into our budget! Hey, I get free refills as many times a day as I want! That's like cutting the cost in half! What more can he ask for?!

Have a great weekend Y'all!!!
