WINNING Fashion Friday!

Warm up in the blizzard by letting thoughts of Taste of the Nation Hartford enter your mind…and enter my giveaway to win two tickets!

I’m not gonna lie, it’s been pretty tough to stay positive ever since I heard about the impending doom of Winter Storm Charlotte.

Or is it Nemo?

Whether the snowstorm is named Nemo, Charlotte, or something else equally random, it still means that I will be spending tonight drinking a bottle of 2fly I’ve been saving and hanging out with my parents and the DVR. Honestly, that doesn’t seem so bad. What I dislike is when snow interferes with my plans! The gym is closing early so I’ll be working out at home today – bah. Daybreak has already announced they’ll be closed tomorrow, so no weekend morning cafe trip – double bah.

But it’s not Fuck-It Friday (okay it is, but Maria has that under control). It’s Fashion Friday and it’s WINNING!

The Houston fashion bloggers behind House of Alice Rose encouraged me last Friday to enter their #FashionFriday Instagram photo contest! So I went for it and tagged @house_alicerose when I posted my #ootd:

The floral blazer has been featured on the first Fashion Friday! And so freaking weird, I just realized I’m wearing a cardigan today that I featured in that post.

And what do you know, I WON!

I received my House of Alice Rose tote bag prize in the mail very quickly after said WINNING took place!


Cute wrapping!

I am honestly just excited to have won a contest that is anything fashion related! Does this make Fashion Friday legit?!


The tote bag came with a kind hand-written note!

I sure hope so because I have a few outfits to share with you today!

Fell in love with this Reebok jacket after seeing it in blue during the Fitness Mag Meet & Tweet fashion show! Was psyched to find it on sale with free shipping too.
