A Maxi Dress, A Necklace, Wrestling & A Giveaway

What do those four things have in common?  Typically, nothing. Today, they have me: the glue that binds them together into one cohesive blog post! ;)

When I was in Destin a few weeks ago, I had a chance to visit the Loft Outlet and seriously could have spent my entire paycheck in there! Instead, I narrowed my purchases down to two dresses.  This little dress that I wore last week and this lovely maxi dress. They were only $19.99 each! They actually had dozens of different dresses at that price. I can't wait to go back when Whitney comes in town. =)

Dress: Loft Outlet
Tank & Sandals: Target

Do you remember when I won this gorgeous necklace from Castellammare Designs? Well, I was thrilled when the owner reached out to me later and offered to give away a piece to one of my readers!

Necklace: Castellammare Designs (purchase here)
Rings & Earrings: Premier Designs Jewelry
Bracelets: Target

Castellammare Designs jewelry is sweet and feminine, while being lively and playful at the same time. Kind of like me! ;)


Do you see that big ole ring on my forefinger?  That beauty is my husband's college National Championship wrestling ring!


Wrestling is in our blood!  My husband's dad and uncle (who are twins!) wrestled in the Olympics in both 1968 and 1972! My husband, his brother and all of his cousins wrestled in high school and college. And you want to know the kicker? My husband's cousin, Sam, is wrestling for Team USA this year in London!! We're all so excited and can't wait for the opening ceremonies Friday night! Go Sam!!

Anyways, back to the matter at hand... this sweet necklace!


I love how she's designed it with the ribbon, in my personal power color. =)


Castellammare Designs wants to give one of you the piece of your choice! Just like I specifically chose this necklace in my favorite color, you'll be able to browse the items in her shop and choose the piece that relates to you best. Maybe a piece that speaks to you in some way or that you feel represents what you're all about!

Ahhh, cut off leaf earrings: http://www.etsy.com/listing/100522597/cut-out-leaf-earrings

Drat that self-imposed shopping ban.

Thank God our Loft Outlet is an hour away from me. My fave dresses and tees all seem to come from there. I find an excuse to stop in every time I visit our state's bar association, which is at least every other month :)
