Twofer Tuesday and a Giveaway!

Because I wear clothes all 7 days of the week, but only do outfit posts about 4 days I often have a little backlog of photos to share. This is great when Matt goes out of town, but in an effort to show more outfits, but not write more posts, I am going to start showing you two outfits on Tuesdays. Hence the Twofer Tuesday title. God, I love alliteration.

Can we just take a minute to admire the burning bush? I wish I had gotten more outfit pics in front of it before it lost all its leaves.




Sweater- New York & Company (similar, similar) // Vest- Forever 21 (similar) // Jeans-Gap // Boots- Etienne Aigner via Shoes.com (similar) // Boot socks- souvenir from Ireland (similar

I actually wasn't sure about posting this. I like the colors, but I had a different top planned for it. It is light greige (grey/beige) with a high ruffled neckline. Of course when I put it on, it was way too librarian/old fashioned teacher looking with my bun. A new top helped, but a pair of boots and different hair style would have been better. 



Blazer- New York & Company (similar, similar) // Tank- Banana Republic (similar, similar) // Skirt- Ralph Lauren via Goodwill, altered by me (similar) // Tights-Walmart // Shoes- Target (similarsimilar) // Necklace- Groopdealz // Earrings and ring-gifts

So I have had this necklace from Groopdealz for a while and I love it. A few weeks ago I saw the matching bracelet and of course I got it. Well, actually I got two. See I was really close to 200 followers on Bloglovin and because I missed my 100th post and my 100th followers, the least I can do is a giveaway for 200 followers! I wear mine all the time and love the extra sparkle it gives to an outfit. I finally reached 200 on Friday (and then finally figured out out to use rafflecopter...hopefully). Thank you for reading my little blog. Your comments always brighten my day and it's been tons of fun so far! Good luck everyone!

  1. Nice giveaway! I don't have any "blingy" bracelets like this, so it would definitely fill a hole for me. Both outfits are cute! I just got boot socks recently and love what they add to an outfit!

  2. I think it would look great with some camo skinnies and a black sweater! A little contrast!

  12. What a fun bracelet! I'm pretty sure it would go with everything, but I can't wear bracelets to work when I'm typing, so I would save it for church or maybe some holiday parties!

  13. I would style the bracelet win a gold chain bracelet and a colorful bangle for an arm party that can be worn with any outfit.

  15. 1) I too have a weakness for alliteration. 2) That first outfit is super cute, I would wear every bit of it. 3) That burning bush is GORG. 4) I LOVE the blazer in the second outfit!

  17. I hear you on the leggings! I have a fleece lined pair that I love instead of tights. Darn midwest winters!

  28. I will like Twofer Tuesdays. I love your style and I'd love seeing more outfits from you. Love the first Outfit. The second Outfit (in my honest opinion) falls a little flat from the waist down rather than that it is nice.


    I love the Silver Sparkly Necklace you got and the beautiful bracelet (I hope to win). First time I would style it/wear it for New Year's Eve with whatever Outfit I will have on, that night. =)

  29. After I saw the pics of the second outfit, I agree with you. I even debated about posting it. I decided to post because I wanted to be honest about what I wear. I think patterned tights or a pair of boots would have made it much better, but I was in a rush that morning. :)

  30. Twofer Tuesdays! What a cute series name! :) I really, really love that first outfit. Vests are just so versatile and great!

  31. I couldn't agree with you more! I think I might be addicted to vests! ;) They are such a fun layer and add a lot of interests to outfits that could so easily be a little boring.
