What I Wore - Week 9, Friends I Love + Day 10 Giveaway...One, I Promise, You Won't Want to Miss!

Commenter #52 was picked by Random.org

Congrats, Jenny from Southern Institute....you WON!

The title makes it sound long, but it isn't too bad.
And, I promise, there is something you will really want at the end!!

Linking up again this week with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy.
Did you know I get to spend almost a whole week with her in January?
And, a few other girls I am so excited to get to know better.
We are going to Blissdom....on The Party Plane!

Here is What I Wore - Week 9.
Taking pictures each week helps me be accountable for putting myself together
most days and remembering what I have worn in the past that worked well together!

You've seen most of this before...but the ruffly blouse is new!

Grey + White Striped Ruffled Tank - Target {there now}

Cream Scoop Neck Top underneath - Nordstrom

Boyfriend Cardigan in Charcoal - Target {there now}

Jeggings - Same as last week. Nordstrom
The only pair of jeans I own that are comfortable right now.

Ruffled Boots - Anthropologie {breaking in nicely}

Lisa Leonard Necklace that my daughter borrowed, then lost {about a year ago}, and just recently found!! Yay!

I got dressed in that last outfit late in the day for a fun party.
Our Chicks in Aprons Christmas Party + Gift Exchange with our hubbies.
I can't look at this picture without feeling an overwhelming amount of love.
These are my friends. Some I know better than others.
But all of them have a special place in my heart...for very different reasons.
Each tugging on a different heart string. I feel blessed to call them my friends.
We had a very, very fun evening!


The next morning, I picked up the jeans and blouse off the floor.....

....and made it a 'day' outfit....a little more casual.

Same jeans, blouse and scoop t {remember I put them on early evening the night before}!

Cropped Grey Cardigan - Juicy Couture Cashmere {Marshalls}

Nine West Outlet Brown Boots

Sunday Church.

Black Capped Sleeved Cami - Undertease

Black Ruffled Cardigan - Target

Black Layered Lace + Satin A-line Skirt - Macy's 6 years ago

Grey Rose Tights - Charlotte Russe

Grey Mary Jane Pumps - Payless Shoe Source

Rosette Necklace + Bracelet - Allora Handmade
{normally I wouldn't wear these together, but for some reason it really
worked with this outfit}

Sweater - Abercrombie + Fitch

Long Sleeved Blue T-shirt - Target

Jeggings + Boots - my regulars

Hat + Vintage Button Brooch - Coming Soon to FVK!

.....in all different combinations!
I had my brooches out at my Trunk Show with one of my hats used as the display. Everyone tried to buy the hat too! When I told them it wasn't for sale...they all said 'it should be...as a package!'

* * * * *

And, now I have saved the best for last.
It's Day 10 of my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - April Kennedy Style!


I thought it would appropriate if my Giveaway complimented my What I Wore Post!

So here it is.....

A $20 Gift Card to Anthropologie!!

You can thank my husband. He braved the crowds and the crazy parking lot
{25 minutes to find a parking space} to pick this little beauty up yesterday
so I could give it away today. Now that is L♥VE!
