NEUTRAL NECESSITY AND A J.CREW GIVEAWAY

camel cashmere sweater, j crew

SHOP NEUTRALS

I can not get enough of neutrals for fall. Whether it’s camel, blush, gray, ivory or any other neutral soft hue I love the effortlessly chic vibe of the toned down palette. I’ve slowly been adding more neutral pieces to my fall and winter wardrobe and they are quickly becoming closet staples because they are so wearable. Not only do neutrals make any outfit look chic, but they go with anything that’s already in your closet, so it’s a win-win! One of my favorites, J.Crew, has a ton of fabulous neutrals this season, and I’ve teamed up with some bloggers to give one lucky winner a $250 J.Crew gift card. Lucky for you, they are also having an awesome promotion right now with an additional 25-30% off all sale items! Perfect time to stock up on sweaters, jackets and maybe even some cozy pjs. See some of my latest posts featuring neutrals here, here, here and here.

You can enter daily over the next two weeks and earn bonus entries by sharing the giveaway with your friends on social media. Good luck!

Prize: $200 J. Crew Gift Card

Rules: Use the Rafflecopter form to enter daily. Giveaway ends 10/17 and is open worldwide.

  50. To be truthful, finding this blog was the good thing so far! I really do love your blog and your style! Your style is very chic but it is also laid-back with flats and combining different casual pieces. I really do love that because it is difficult for me to run after a 4-year old in heels all day! I needed the practical ideas for my wardrobe!
