wanna make this girl's day? she has a special request!!

dress: belk / shoes: madden girl / headband: much love illy
tights: courtesy of we love colors / rings: gift from a friend and adorn joy

so over the weekend, the family and i made a shopping trip out to Savannah. we (as in mom, me, and ashley; dad was chilling out at Barnes and Nobles with his coffee and laptop. where he is perfectly content) were specifically headed out there to restock on summer clothing, especially as the temps were rising here in the south. notice i wrote were rising. past tense. since monday, the temperatures decided to fall. not too drastic but just odd for this time of the year to be sending me chills and goosebumps, especially here in the south.

yet we're gonna look on the bright side here. it's not freezing cold, nor is it blistering hot (and i hear those hot days are coming!). i can still walk out without a coat and i'm still able to wear my favorite colorful accessories. i'm especially in love with these pink polka dotted ones from We Love Colors. i'm not even crazy about the color pink - but are they not so fun?! love 'em!

quick change of gears, 
i have a special request.

i would love to make a big ole party of a post of those of you who rock Much Love, illy products!! i've been wanting to do this for a long time but just haven't gotten around to it. so if you have a photo or two of you rocking an poppy garland headband, hair charm, ring or whatever - if it came from my shop and you are wearing it - i totally would love to include it in my post! if you are game, shoot me an email (muchloveilly[at]gmail[dot]com) with your photo, including your name and blog link/name. 

and a BONUS!! if you send  me your picture by the end of the week, i'll reply to you with a discount code for 20% off of your next order from Much Love, illy! it would be a small way to thank you for your support of me and my lil' shop. can't wait!! you're gonna make this girl's day!!
 much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

 and a couple more things...
first, have you entered Polly's incredible giveaway yet?! if not, you really should!
second, are you Emma (#117) of An Owl's Nest? if so you just won the Along for the Ride giveaway!  shoot me an email at muchloveilly[at]gmail[dot]com so that we can make sure you connect with Laura for your shop credit!

  3. You are adorable! I love the dress, the tights and shoes. Plus your headband is just perfect. I wish my hair would sit better with headbands.

    Unfortunately I have no camera at the moment. I was trying to take a photo of my pink poppy headband (that I wore on Sunday) with my iPhone but don't think it was that great. I will have to try anyway :)
