random rambling...age+lots of excitement

there's so much going on around here this week. let's start with a few announcements...
1. i'm right in the middle of going dot com...right in the middle meaning it's not going as well as i wish it was.
2. it's giveaway central around here, and another exciting one starts today...see below
3. WWYD...with a target (or any store) cardigan is wed. pick a cardi, take some pics, and link up.
4. i've been promising an online party for agnes and dora leggings. it's happening starting on wed too. these leggings are the cutest, most comfortable things ever.
now let's get on with today's post...
my darling friend Lindsey and a few of her friends recently opened the green brocade. i went to their first pop up shop a couple of weeks ago, and everything, literally everything, is to die for cute. we all know i love a good cardi. this thing is amazing. it's long. it's soft. the color is perfection. basically i'm dying. i'll be sure to let you know about the next event so you can get one too.
in the meantime, the green brocade is giving away this necklace. it's bold enough to make a statement but subtle enough to be a little less if that's your style. i love love love good accessories, and this is definitely a good one. enter with rafflecopter below.

 random rambling...age
no one, i mean not one single soul, ever guesses my age. i don't know if it's because i have long hair or if it's because i'm single and have no kids or if i age well. i'm not complaining. it's actually kind of a fun game for me. i like to know how old people think i am. i get the whole "age is just a number" and "you're only as old as you feel" mumbo jumbo, but the reality is, i'm getting older. the possibility of having more than a couple of kids is getting really slim. no matter how young i look or act or feel, there comes a time when age really does matter. i'm pretty sure no one's life is exactly how they expected it to be. i know mine for sure is not. i have talked before about life and how things are turning out. even though my life is nothing like what i expected or planned, i am really happy with it, but it doesn't change the fact that age matters. while i am flattered when people guess much younger than i really am, lately it kind of seems like age matters more and more. who wants to play the game? guess my age...i promise i won't be offended.
enough serious talk...go enter the giveaway. come back on wed for the leggings party.

  1. Aubrey! You're awesome. I'm so excited to partner with you on this giveaway!

  2. Definitely pearls! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  3. I never leave the house without earrings.

  4. I love my bow ring from kate spade or my monogram necklace

  5. I have a matching heart necklace and bracelet my husband got me from Tiffanys- they are both small, but I rarely leave the house without those two pieces! Love them and they go with everything.

  6. I am a sucker for a cute necklace! That is what I have the most of!

  7. Age is weird - especially for those of us who don't necessarily look our age. You think you have forever to have kids and then, BOOM, you wake up one day and you're in your 30's and then realize if it's gonna happen, it needs to happen sooner rather than later. Hang in there! :)

  8. You know that necklace is screaming this New Mexican's name. Mikael, Mikael, I'm yours!
