The blended blog – spread the love

Hi friends and Happy Monday to y’all! I hope you had a great weekend. Can you believe this is the last Monday of February? We’re getting dangerously close to spring. YIPPEE! Today is a fun day for my little blogging community. A bunch of us participated in a gift exchange hosted by the girls from The Blended Blog and this is the day we are revealing what we received and who we were paired with.

I was paired with Carrie from A Stylish Fit and I’m so happy I was. Carrie is a super sweet lady with not only a wonderful sense of style, but great insight on life. She blogs about fashion, faith and all things lifestyle. She’s recently been doing some wonderful posts on marriage.

It’s so fun to get a little “happy” in the mail. My niece called presents “happy’s” when she was little and I just love that.

 When I opened my package and saw a Kate Spade box, I knew there would be something fun inside.Carrie must have known I am a huge fan of Kate Spade.

Sometimes a sweet little necklace is all an outfit calls for and this one is perfect for those occasions.

Isn’t it cute? Naturally I forgot to take a picture with it on, but I did have to laugh last week when Kellyann did a post and guess what she was wearing…

It’s perfect with an off the shoulder dress like this and will also look so cute with any kind of top with a v-neck.

Carrie, Thank you for such a sweet little piece to add to my collection.

Pop over to Carrie’s blog and check it out and take a little peak at what I sent her.?

Here’s to a great week ahead!

    I’ve been really into simpler jewelry lately, especially with my more casual outfits. I can’t believe she sent you something sweet from Kate Spade!! I’ve really been loving Carrie’s marriage posts lately, so inspiring! I wish I had gotten in on this gift swap, how did you find out about it?!


    • March 3, 2018 / 9:20 pm

      I wish you’d gotten in on it too. I figured you would be. I probably saw it on Andrea’s blog if I had to guess. I can’t honestly remember. If there’s another one, I’ll make sure you know about it. Have a great weekend. XO

    • April 13, 2018 / 10:13 am

      I just love a good accessory that can be worn multiple ways. Happy Friday, Laura! XO
