Surprise :: Stripe Dress, MacBook Air & Kate Spade

Frequently Asked Questions - Start a Blog

Happy Wednesday! While I am preparing new looks to share (and this fun stripe dress styling!), getting ready for an upcoming vacation, have one giveaway currently going on and typing away on my own MacBook, I figured why not give one away (below)?

I love mixing just about any pop of color with black and white stripes! It’s best to pick one piece to be your focal point when adding to stripes. I choose black for my bag and shoes to keep the boldness of the red blazer as the only “color” I wore. Stripes never go out of style, so it’s safe to say that you should invest in a few key stripe pieces for any season, and enjoy mixing it up! Hope you enjoy!

Outfit :: J.Crew Factory stripe dress (on sale and now under $27!) , The Limited Blazer (old, similar here), Jean-Michel Cazabat platform heels (now extra 15% off!), ASOS belt (old, love this one too!), Forever 21 handbag, Rings from Ily Couture and Nordstrom Rack

I’ve teamed up with yet another group of awesome ladies who love to give stuff away (making people happy is fun!). This time around, we are giving one lucky reader a 13.3 silver MacBook Air worth $1,199 and a Kate Spade tote/baby bag that you can use as a carrier for your MacBook Air. The total value of the prizes is $1,600. Open to international readers, although please note the international winner will be responsible for the shipping and custom fees.

And while there are officially two giveaways going on right now on This Season’s Gold, here’s the other one (a Nordstrom giveaway), it may be a little while before I have any more as I am working on an exciting relaunch of the site sometime in late summer. I can’t wait to share so many great happenings and new people that I have met whom have truly made my life as a blogger such a joy!

Thank you so much reading and your support! Good luck!

xoxo, Jessica
