cold hands, warm hearts swap 2011 link-up partaaaay!!

 yellow cardi: Belk / paris tee: Urban Outfitts / cobalt blue pants: TJMaxx
hanakai booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes /floral scarf and rust fingerless gloves: from my Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap Package

i've always been a big snail mail nerd. i always think that there is something extra special about receiving a package or a letter in your mailbox. and this continues to be proven true today as i'm currently sending off Christmas cards and packages!

and of course, i was as giddy as ever when i received my Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap package from my co-hoster and partner in crime, Sandy! i adore the rust fingerless gloves she sent me, so perfect for the warmer weather (warmer in comparison to Chicago) here in South Carolina - and anyone knows my mad love for floral and scarves?! 
Sandy definitely knows that about me so i especially am digging the scarf! 


other goodies Sandy included were a darling cuff bracelet, smart tip gloves, floral belt (the one i wore in this outfit), and animal print tights (in LOVE!). and big oops on the sour patch candies - ate that as soon as i opened up the package - and also on the cupcake decor. totally used those at a Christmas party - but hey, you know that they were mega loved! 

and to all the CHWH participants, thank YOU so much for making this another successful year of package swapping! tweets between CHWH partners becoming immediate besties rocks my face off. soooo...be sure to take pictures and leave some link-love in  a post - and then head over to Sandy's and link-up at the haaa-uuuuge Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap link-up party we're having over HERE (the link-up party starts at 10PM CST, December 13th). the party also gives you the chance to blog hop and make even more new friends! 


and if you have not yet received your package (we understand the holidays are such a crazy busy time!), the link-up tool will last until early January so there's still plenty of time for you to join the party fashionably late! 
cannot wait to see all the incredible packages and posts!

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]
