31st Birthday + $50 Sole Society Giveaway!!

 J.Crew Factory Top // Max Studio Jeans via Marshalls c/o (save) // Sole Society Sandals c/o // Sole Society Bag c/o // Citizen Watch c/o // Nine West Sunglasses via Marshalls c/o (save, splurge)
 
I just remembered yesterday that it's my birthday today.  Last year it was all I thought about for months.  Fast forward to turning 31, and I almost forgot it lol!  We are in the process of moving so it has been an extremely busy couple of months so far, so I guess it sort of slipped my mind.  We bought a new vehicle last month, then decided to move 2 weeks later, all while being almost 6 months pregnant.  Remind me next time I'm pregnant to tell Shane no when he says he wants to move.  = )  What a year it has been!  I graduated with my masters.  I got a promotion at work.  We finally underwent IVF to have a little one on the way, and I can't wait to finally get to meet little Leighton this year!  To celebrate I am hosting a week full of awesome giveaways!  Monday's giveaway was for a Kendra Scott Rayne necklace.  Tuesday's was for a Sew Sarah monogrammed clutch, and today is another wonderful giveaway from Sole Society!
 
I love Sole Society and wear their bags, shoes and jewelry pretty often.  I just received these beautiful cobalt blue sandals and brown handbag from them.  They are both such great weekend essentials.  They're those kinds of items that you can easily just throw into your overnight bag with you and take for a long weekend getaway.  I love my large handbags, and this one is even a great size to use as a weekend bag.  It also has a zippered compartment on the bottom, which I love.  I recently wore this outfit out to dinner in Orlando a couple weeks ago, and it was the perfect casual outfit that was still nice enough for a dinner with colleagues. 
 
Let's get back to the giveaway!  I have teamed up with Sole Society today to give away $50 to use on anything from their website.  To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget below.  If you won, what would you choose?

  1. Hmm I'd have to say the bag. For sure. Especially with a toddler who seems to need a lot more than a baby does when we go places.

  32. Happy Birthday! Hosting a giveaway on your birthday--aren't you the one who is supposed to get presents? ;)

    Right now I'm really liking patterned bags, so I'd probably pick up the little Cody bag and spend the rest on a pair of earrings or a bracelet from there. The Jenny wedges are so cute--I already own two pairs of equestrian colored wedges, so I probably don't really need a third pair.

  33. happy birthday! i would definitely pick the bag, i've been in search of a good brown handbag!

  85. Happy Birthday! I love those cobalt sandals--I've seen them on several blogs and would love to add them to my summer wardrobe!

    ReplyDelete
  86. If I could choose either the Sole Society bag or the Sole Society sandals, I would choose the bag because it is gorgeous and I live in a cooler climate where sandals can only be worn for a short time.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Seriously, do you guys ever slow down?! LOL, i cannot believe how much you and Shane do at one time!! I hope you can relax before the baby comes. :-) And the shoes would be my choice, for sure!
