Fashion Friday: Edition the Super Bowl is Sunday and a giveaway!


The Super Bowl is Sunday. And I’m pretty sure the Ravens are in it but I couldn’t tell you the name of the other team right now if you paid me cash money. That’s how much I care about professional football.

But I’m sure we’ll cook chili and P will watch the game and I’ll watch the commercials and then he’ll decide he doesn’t care about the halftime show and turn it right as Beyonce is taking the stage which will be the only thing I’m really interested in.

Anyway, I’m really excited today because I have a great bracelet to give away to one lucky winner. The nice people from The Impeccable Pig contacted me and said they would like to give away a piece of jewelry. And so I chose this bracelet because it was my personal favorite.


I love a cuff bracelet. I love gold. I love turquoise. It’s the perfect bracelet trifecta.

And one of you can win one for yourself. All you need to do is go visit The Impeccable Pig website and tell me about something cute you found in the comments.

As for me, I am loving this cathedral top. I think it would look so cute with white jeans or shorts in the summer.


And I also love this blue sun necklace.


Here are some other things I’ve found this week:

1. towne and reese deep teal & turquoise earrings


One of the reasons I love Carol & Company, other than because they have gorgeous jewelry, is that they are so generous. The owner has a friend who is currently fighting breast cancer and they are giving her 20% from all sales on February 1-2 to help ease the financial burden.

If there was ever a good excuse to go buy some cute jewelry for yourself, this is it.

2. zig zag chiffon scarf


A good scarf can change an outfit. This is one of those scarfs.

3. all roads embroidery tunic


I saw this in person yesterday and am still thinking about it. It’s the perfect thing to throw on with jeans or shorts during the spring and summer.

4. fitted boyfriend teacup shirt


I like this shirt. The teacups might be a little precious for me, but they’re small enough that I can deal. Also, it seems like it’s a versatile length.

5. studded swing dress


Gorgeous color. And perfect to wear with leggings and a denim jacket right now. And then maybe with white skinny jeans this summer.

Or maybe with bare legs if you’re younger than me.

6. matinee chevron blouse

I know. Chevron. Every week.

But this is a shirt not a dress so it’s TOTALLY DIFFERENT. It comes in aqua or black.

7. canvas trench coat


Tim Gunn once said every woman needs a trench coat. I don’t know if that’s true. But I do know that I have a black trench coat that I bought almost ten years ago that I still wear from time to time.

And this one is cute with the pop of color in the lining.

8. denim shirt


Denim shirt. If you don’t have one, I think you need one. It’s versatile.

9. printed tank dress


Honestly, I threw this in because I was having a hard time finding ten things I wanted to feature. And I’d never actually wear this because it’s not really my style. But I think it would be cute on someone.

10. 3/4 length sleeve t-shirt


I ran in Zara yesterday and tried on this shirt. And almost bought it. And now I wish I had so that’s my tale of woe for the day. Anyway, it’s a great length and super soft.

That’s it for today.

Y’all have a good weekend.

And I hope Beyonce wins the Super Bowl.

Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the bracelet from The Impeccable Pig.

    Our Superbowl experience will mirror yours as neither of our teams is playing in it. The commercials could be fun though, and it is always a good excuse to make a huge platter of nachos! Love the giveaway bracelet. Count me in, please!

    Lots of cute stuff! I like the Peplum Lace Top for spring with white skinny jeans. I have to say the website is a bit hard to see – soo light, many of the items washout. BUT – none the less cute and worth the work to view everything.

  37. 37

  64. 65

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention the Ivory Chevron dress at Impeccable Pig! I think it’s cute and not too “In your face” Chevron-y. I also love the bracelet and hope I win it!

  65. 66

  70. 71

    Love the Starburst necklace in teal…my fave color!

  71. 72

  88. 89

    That bracelet is so cute!! Even if I don’t win, I need to go buy one. Perfect for Texas summer/fall because turquoise and gold go GREAT with burnt orange.

  89. 90

    I like this nice neutral drop earring – elegant to casual works for me!

  90. 91

    Do you read Shay’s (Sean the Bachelor’s sister) blog? She linked to that teacup shirt today, too. Shay dresses cuter than cute, and she is so pretty, but when I saw that, I thought: UMMMM-NO -TOTALLY NOT HAPPENING. My 86-year old grandmother has silk shirts with that kind of print.
    So then I click on over to my other fashion icons blog, and what does she link to? The Teacup Shirt. *sigh*
    I think I need to get someone in here every morning to help me dress because I’m obviously losing my marbles (or teacups) when it comes to fashion. Or perhaps it’s time to start listening to my grandmother? :/

    Love the chevron stuff over at The Impeccable Pig! I like the honeycomb necklace and cathedreal top as well. Wish I could pick just one!

  91. 92
    Jackie Ingram says:

    Love that necklace…totally adding it to my list of must haves. Have you checked out this really cute little boutique down in Alamo Heights, I think it’s called Aqua? I got an adorable clutch & some bracelets from there before we left.

  120. 121

    I was partially wrong, it’s called Aquarius ( I went to a pop-up dinner there & had more than a few cocktails and a LOT of Cava. It all got a little fuzzy. Ahhh…I miss my days in SA.

  121. 122

    LOVE that bracelet! The whole website is so pretty, and the names are too cute! My favorite shirt is the Kiss Me Top, BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for the giveaway … oh and … GO NINERS!!!

  122. 123

    I love the Whit Bubble Necklace.

    The Curious Dress is adorable! And on sale for $10? What?

  137. 138

    I love the Sara top!

  138. 139

    I love all of it. Since I am an older woman, I search for bright pretty styles but usually they are either for the very young or plus size ladies which I am not. I believe I could wear all the clothes except for the dress is lovely but would be a little short for me. and yet not appear that I am trying to look too young. I especially liked the embroidery tunic,in fact all the shirts and tops would go perfect with my jeans. Loved the jewelry!

  139. 140
    Linda Stansfield says:

    I loved the circle and teardrop earrings. I also love your Friday fashion blogs. I look forward every Friday evening to reading your column. It’s a welcome treat after a long week spent with 15 year olds and all their teenage “drama.”

    Love the large teardrop earrings!!!

  141. 142

    The small teardrop earrings are beautiful!!!

  142. 143

    Ok, I really like the ‘keep it classy ‘ top. Mostly because it’s cute, but also because it reminds me of my college roommate. That was our code for one another to ake sure we were always behaving like a lady & ‘keepin’ it classy’!

  143. 144

    They have some really cute stuff. I love the Chevron Open Sweater and the “Greens” bangles. They remind me of sparkly asparagus wrapped around your wrist. Not sure why that would have an appeal, but these work!

  144. 145

    Peplum and Lace and Kiss Me are two favorites. Lots of cute stuff.

  145. 146
    Julia Meyers says:

  156. 157

    I like the bubble pendant necklace – such fun colors!

  157. 158

  159. 160

    Loving the “Lovely You Dress”–ALL of their things are so cute!

  160. 161

    OK, so I drove all the way to Alamo Heights to check out the Impeccable Pig store in person. FANTASTIC store. Odd name, but way better than Dress Barn. :)

    Tammy Minnick says:

    Well, I think I LOVE the smoke tear drop earrings. There are lots of cute clothes that I will love in about 6-8 months (diet time). Or maybe I REALLY love the green earrings because they remind me of “Sparkly Green Earrings” :)

  165. 166

    The “Be Mine” top is gorgeous! I also love the backdrop of all of their photos. :)

  166. 167

    Well I already ordered from them after your last post where you mentioned them. I got the Shayla dress for myself (on sale for $20) and a dress for $10 for my daughter which she plans to wear to a wedding this summer….$10!!! (it’s already gone from the site :( ). Thanks for the giveaway and the intro to the Impeccable Pig.

    Dresses, Dresses, Dresses! Now to lose a GAZALLION pounds to get in them. :)

  168. 169

    I meant “Gazillion” .. it is so many lbs I can’t spell the word.

  169. 170

    I am loving the Bubble Pendant Necklace… you can’t beat it for only $10! Too bad it is sold out right now!
