On this day Chris and I went to the World of Beer, the Corner Bakery Cafe, and window shopped (for the most part) at Marshalls! I absolutely loved everything in Marshalls, they have great home decor. I need to remember to go back when we have a place of our own to decorate. Chris Instagramed owldecor while we were there, he is so silly.
Somehow Memorial Day, the day where we honor those that have fallen in service for the United States, has turned into a nice long weekend where we have outdoor barbecues, celebrations, and pool parties. If you aren’t sure what you’d like to wear for these outdoor celebrations and how patriotic you’d like to go, check out our fashion guide.
Due to some crazy random shipping happenstance, I ended up with two extra Ellie February outfits (shown above). After emailing the company they let me keep the outfits for a giveaway. Yay! I will be picking two winners to get the Forget Me Knot Top and the Kiss Me Capri. The sizes are in small but if you check out this post on the Ellie February collection you can see the outfit (also in a small) on my sister-in-law, who has much more feminine curves then I do. I find the size runs a little large so it should fit a good amount of people.
Since I’ll be sending out the packages, this giveaway will be international. Just note that if you win and do not live in the USA your package can take a month or more to get to you and it is possible that it may get lost in the mail. I sadly can’t help that. Ellie as a company is not international so if you don’t live in the states make sure you enter this giveaway!
As for my updated thoughts on Ellie, I was disappointed recently because the sports bra and top I ordered in March took a month to ship to me. That was definitely not enjoyable. I received an email (screenshot below) explaining the situation and although that did make me feel better (knowing that maintaining quality was the issue rather then irresponsibility) I am going to take off a few months from Ellie. I anticipate shopping from them again mid-Summer to see if anything has changed. I still plan on sharing my March outfit with you guys later next week.
Good luck in the giveaway! I can’t wait to hear your blog post and video requests.
