You know, I started out this blog not having very high hopes for it. I wanted a place to take pictures of what I was wearing and see if I could do this whole "fashion" thing. I didn't expect to meet such great people along the way. So this is why I'm hosting a giveaway.  To say thank you for your kind words, support, and comments.  They mean a lot to me!

The winner of this giveaway will receive The Classic Cowl in Sky Blue from my etsy shop Taylor House.

  1. I love your outfit posts. They give me such great ideas. I think it would awesome if you did posts about a certain accessory or article of clothing. Like you could have a post dedicated to how to wear scarves or the best sweaters of the season and what to wear them with.

    Thanks for doing this!!! :D

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. eeeep! i love the colour of this one!

    i have to second heather, i love seeing your outfits - and would love to see more daily life posts!

  11. where to begin.
    1. it feels surreal to have been a part of Streets&Stripes when it was just a baby - now you're all grown up & successful.
    2. if I didn't have to budget for groceries & heating bills, I would've purchased this cowl a long time ago.
    3. favorites: your life posts - it makes me feel like we're 'catching up' and of course your outfit posts!!
    4. more of: a "lookbook" component...take a piece of clothing/accessory and dress it up and down, show us three looks incorporating the same piece AND maybe keep us up-to-date with sales & bargains happening at your favorite stores on the web??
    5. xoxo

  20. That color is amazing! Love it. I really love all of your outfit posts, but I think the "lookbook" idea from one of the previous comments would be really neat.

  21. hey there! i just discovered your blog/etsy shop and i am already a fan. well done!

    being a newbie, i'd have to say that i love your style and outfit posts...and i have to echo the comments above about how GREAT it is that you feature affordable pieces.

    i also love the idea of you doing a three-for feature...where you feature one piece done several different ways.

    p.s. i LOVE this cowl. and could really use in up in Chicago. i'm just sayin'. (:

  22. love your inspiring outfits, and would love to see more outfit posts soon! ♥

  23. Outfit posts are the best! More opinion posts would be fun, because you seem like a smart and funny chica. :-)

  24. I like your outfit posts and how relatable your style is as a lot of what you wear I can wear to work. Love your Etsy shop too of course :)

  25. I love your style, your down to earth outfits yet chic! Overall I love your blog. Ii would like to see however, some DYI projects? Anything simple-small but cute!

  26. hi sweets, i blogged about the giveaway!

  27. Great giveaway, Chaucee!

    Of course, I love your outfit posts & photography.

    I'd like to see more of your photography, and maybe you could do a knitting DIY (?) since you make such BEAUTIFUL things. :)

    You know where to reach me!

  28. And I tweeted, of course!!/jeannaadcock

  29. I really enjoyed the photos you took while in New York. You should post more Random photos. You are very talented. And I LOVE that you get a lot of your stuff at Target!

  30. I have posted a link to your blog at:

  31. Hey! I love that you take pictures in so many different places; it can get boring very quickly when people model in the same location every day.

    I would love to see more about you than just your outfits - maybe more fashion tips, your sources of inspiration, etc.

    Great giveaway!

  32. you have to know - your blog is my favorite fashion blog! i get excited everyday when you post something new. i think out of all fashion blogs that i found, your style is most similar to mine. i HAVE to be comfortable in what i wear and I'm a casual and jeans girl. so i love everything you post! :)

    the thing that i love about your blog is how you show styles with dresses/skirts. you inspire me in wearing more of them! i always felt that tights were something that will always be uncomfortable. but i think if i find the right one, along with the right outfit, i will be comfortable!

    what i would like to see is more style with jeans. like i said, i'm a girl with jeans. and perhaps style with lounge wear? that's the two fashion styles im looking for across blogs.

    i know i told you all this via email but thought i'd give it a shot in your giveaway. :) you even made me want to learn how to knit! haha!

    sending you smiles,

  33. Hello! Love the cowls, love the shop! I like the format you put the outfit posts in, with the components of each typed onto the picture file. And I'd love to see more posts on things that inspire you~

  34. You know I adore EVERYTHING about your blog - it's one of my absolute favs:) I especially love your outfits (you have the best layering skills hands down) and your photography, which is inspiring.

    I would love to see even more of your work on here:-)

    Awesome giveaway!! The cowl - beautiful! I love the color. I am still waiting to purchase a winter coat so I can then actually decide what cowl of yours I want to purchase to go with it:)

    Have a lovely day! xxMarisa

  37. I love your blog! I really enjoy your day-to-day pictures :) I think I would really like to learn more about you--a Q&A post could be fun :)

    Thanks for being awesome!

  38. i think your blog is great. you have an everyday style that looks awesome and would work for most people. with that being sad, maybe showing us how you come up with your style or how to layer. thanks!
