A Green Garden + a Shabby Apple Giveaway









Top: Ruche; Skirt: H&M (similar); Shoes: JC Penney; Bracelet: Tiffany & Co.

I recently bought this beautiful floral top from Ruche and struggled with how to wear it. It's particularly short, has a peter pan collar and flowy sleeves, and was difficult to pair with anything in my closet. And then I tried it with this pencil skirt and totally fell in love. It's a keeper and I'm glad I was brave enough to keep trying to make it work!

CP and I are begrudgingly back at work this week, but getting back to our regular photos and blogging is making the transition decidedly less awful. Though I think we're both just ready to retire from our day jobs and be independently wealthy bloggers from here on out!

In some more exciting news, we're hosting a giveaway courtesy of Shabby Apple! You could win a $50 gift card to anything you want at Shabby Apple, including gorgeous sterling silver jewelry (like the necklace to the left that I actually just ordered), cute beachy dresses and gorgeous shoes! 

We're thrilled that Shabby Apple offered to host this giveaway and hope you'll visit their site to check out some of their gorgeous items! Enter below through RaffleCopter!
*Open to U.S. residents only!
