One Year of Blogging Giant Giveaway!

It's hard to believe that exactly one year ago today, I put up my very first outfit post. While it seems like a long time, it also feels like I've been doing this for way longer than I actually have After reading personal style blogs for years, I never thought that I'd be able to do it myself, but I'm so happy that I did. Not only has it challenged it me to define my style, take more risks with fashion, and learn more about photography and graphic design (both of which I'm still complete novices at), but it has introduced me to some of the most amazing people from around the world. I'm so fortunate to have met and worked with incredible bloggers, and I'm excited to see who I'll have the pleasure of meeting in the next year. One of my favorite parts of blogging, however, is that I've had the opportunity of discovering and collaborating with small business owners. I'm a gigantic fan of supporting "the little guy," and I'm so excited to offer one of my readers the chance to win a BUNCH of store credit and awesome items from my favorite small business owners. 

Here's what you'll win:

If you've been reading for a while, you know that I love August Wrinkle. I've had the pleasure of styling up a few of their items and I find myself wanting just about everything they stock. Jana is offering the item of your choice (whether it be clothing, jewelry, accessory, etc.). The only problem will be choosing just one.

Hannah of The Braided Bandit is not only super stylish and a fellow Flock Together girl, but she also owns the most adorable vintage store, The Braided Bandit Vintage. She has the best eye and stocks her store with the sweetest pieces. Right now, it's full of adorable collars and pretty floral frocks that are begging to worn this summer. Hannah is kindly offering a $30 gift card.

Every time I scroll through the items in Heidi's shop, Heidala's, (and trust me, I've done so plenty of times), I can't help but imagine them being worn on the beach and paired with a sun hat. Heidala's creates such pieces as lacy crop tops, printed shorts, colorful skater skirts and more. Just in time for summer, Heidi is offering $40 in store credit.

It's always a treat when my favorite bloggers turn out to be talented on top of being well-dressed. Kati of Almost Stylish is one of the sweetest bloggers I've met in addition to creating some of the most fun pieces I've seen on Etsy. For her shop, Katinka, Kati creates the coolest patch kits (such as elbow patches and knee patches). Update: due to some technical issues, the winner will be receiving the classic patch kit from Katinka, Kati's most popular item. 

There are a large amount of vintage shops on Etsy that I have favorited, but Jo's shop, Sloppy Jo's Sloppy Seconds, had me falling in love the moment I stumbled onto it. I get so frustrated with amount of vintage shops that carry skirts that are too long for me and itchy sweaters, but there's something so fresh and flirty about the pieces at Sloppy Jo's. Jo is offering $15 in store credit, but you may have to fight me for that chevron dress.

No big giveaway would be complete without accessories, and the ones from Sassy Stitches by Lori are by far the perfect choice. Lori handmakes a wide variety of bags, totes, clutches, headbands, and more, and each item has a classic appeal that will go with anything. Lori is offering $15 in store credit to her shop.

Keep it all or give some it as gifts — one person will win it all. Thank you all for the amazing support I've received over the past year and good luck!

The giveaway will remain open until next Friday, 06/07, at 12 a.m.
