Christmas In Chicago... (+ scarf giveaway post)

*singing* There ain't nothing like Christmas in New York Chicagoooo" (not to take away from N.Y)...
Christmas in Chicago was nothing short of AMAZING...! I mean, the city just FELT like Christmas. I thoroughly enjoyed the weather (snow flurries and brutal winds), shopping, the store's window displays, walking pedestrians, taxi's, deep dish pizza, Garretts popcorn and EVERything downtown Chicago offered...!
I've been the city before, just not during the holidays.... Can't wait to go next Christmas ;)

MotifMana and I are on our last giveaway for the season (scarves)!! It was fun and thanks to ALL of you who participated, hope you enjoy your gifts.... :)

I purchased several of these hats in different prints from Dillard's before my trip. They were comfy and
and kept me warm and stylish Anna and Ava

This pic is alll about the Beanie and the Apple :) 

Although I wanted to keep warm, I still had to add my mixed prints in the cut

Gold Snakeskin and Grey...

Ok, Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and I'm wearing short sleeves!! The sun was shining so bright and the temperature so warm (68) that I may have gotten a little carried away on this outfit shirt tied up and thangs. This shirt is really boxy so knotting it in the front was the only way for it to look appealing...
Giveaway #4 is here!!!

Sweatshirt, Pencil Skirt, and Faux Fur....

 Ok, so you may know by now that MotifMana.com and I have collaborated to post and discuss a few of our "Favorite Things" in an effort to provide you guys with gift ideas for the women in your life.
She and I agreed that "midi rings" are great gifts and are giving some away!! It's still time to win them, read the stipulations in my previous post :)

I'm loVing pencil skirts and sweatshirts these days!!! I have so many separates that I will be wearing this fall/winter. I just love the femininity of a pencil skirt and the casualness of a sweat shirt!
Either one (or both) can make great gifts!
