{Giveaway - Shabby Apple}

Warmer weather brings so many good things. Beach days (for some), park days, after dinner walks and bike rides, longer days and a huge welcome back to incorporating more skirts and dresses into the daily wearables.

To celebrate a little early Spring and the upcoming St. Patrick's day holiday with a little green I have an awesome giveaway by Shabby Apple. You've read me rave about their beautiful dresses before. I own a few of their dresses and each is very well made and high quality.

This beautiful dress from Shabby Apple can make its home in one lucky winner's closet.

I love the color and the petal details. You could wear it with flats or some sexy wedges, with a thick or thin belt or just as is. A very versatile and beautiful dress...and in my favorite color.

Ok, this is the THIRD shabby apple giveaway I have entered. Third time's a charm right? I totally love that dress. I've been eyeing the houndstooth dress for awhile. How do their sizes run? true? big? small?
Love their stuff.

And I like shabby apple on Facebook.

Pick me, Pick me!

banananutmeg said...

oopsie...I forgot to add that my fave part of spring is that winter is OVER! I'd wear the dress loose...and maybe try to fill the extra belly space with a baby this summer.

Kyjah and Brandon said...

I liked it too. My favorite thing about spring is taking walks with my family, holding hands with the hubby, while Owen follows along on his bike and Norah tries to keep up on her big wheel.

My FAVORITE part of spring is the fresh fruits that you can eat right off the tree including plumbs and peaches. If I won this beautiful dress I would wear it to church.

My favorite part of Spring is the kids' excitement to get outdoors and play. It usually doesn't last until summer because then it gets too hot. So Spring is perfect!

I could use a new Easter dress! I'd pair it with a slim belt and my vintage red heels courtesy of my great grams

Family Scads said...

Okay, so no secret here, but my VERY favorite about spring is that I am able to leave the house with ALL of my children. No more Beckham lock down, no more taking turns going to church/staying home with the little man, no more nasty winter germies, blah, blah, blah! Yup, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!

For years I have been wanting their "Antiquated" dress, but have never had the guts to lay down that amount of cash. But, someday, I will!

Miss and love ya!

How would I wear a gorgeous green (also favorite color) dress that I won on the best holiday of the year? Really? :) Actually, I have a friend's wedding coming up that I am pretty sure an ex-boyfriend (who is now engaged) will be attending. I was telling a couple of friends that I needed to get an awesome dress to show off my recent weight loss.... Are you getting the picture yet? :)

And Erica, you know my ties to St. Patrick's Day run pretty deep, don't you? Consider the blog post done! :)

My favorite part of spring is the feeling of fresh new starts - from new flower buds to spring cleaning! I would love this green dress (to compliment my copper/red hair!). I like simple. I'd leave the dress as-is, maybe don a cute pair of metallic or embellished flats. That's it. It's a winner on its own! :)

Cari said...

I LOVE SPRING! Seasonal depression is the worst so when I see blue skies, sun & green grass starting to peek up from the dead of winter, I feel like myself again! The spring bulbs finally protesting the cold by pushing out of the ground with their bright colors, the birds singing, baby plants starting to grow for the garden-- everything just seems better in the spring :)

If I won this dress, I would wear it barefoot in the park and make a lovely picnic to celebrate!

My favorite part of spring is ditching the socks. I seriously hate socks but during a Utah winter (October-April) they are a necessity. But I love sandals and pedicures.
That dress is beautiful and I would love to try it with a belt. Probably flats or wedges.
