$50 to Kiki La'Rue

We're snowed in for the third day now. My work even suspended operations. I'm going to throw some chicken in the crock pot for chicken tacos tonight and dream about ordering a pizza tomorrow night.

I don't know what ya'll do for snowed-in activities with your toddlers, but I am bored and so are they. There is no point in cleaning anything and we all have the attention span the size of an ant, so we're cranky and lacking vitamin D.

In the meantime, in lieu of a post about how I have eaten us out of the house, you get a $50 giveaway to Kiki La'Rue! KLR was my biggest donor for my St Jude marathon fundraiser (did you see my exciting news on facebook?). I sent an email to about 80 people with my donation link. Becka was one of the first people to contribute and generously gave $1000!



When she asked to do a giveaway on the blog, with proceeds benefiting The Shine Project, I told her I would match it for an instagram giveaway too. Both giveaways are promoting their Shop for a Cause event this weekend in Southlake, Texas!



TWO GIVEAWAYS... Each $50! 

Since you all know I am as fashionable as a squirrel, it took two Lumiday's and a Strawberita to do a full length selfie. I even "spray tanned" my legs in PicMonkey but they are still as white as rice. I don't know why I feel this way sometimes, but I definitely felt good after I saw the pictures. All of the clothes I've had from KLR make me feel good and are flattering.

First up, the First-Class dress in orange and teal. I paired it with a black blazer from TJ Maxx and Jessica Simpson pumps from Macy's. I have shorter legs and the dress hit about an inch or two above my knee. I love that the dress has long sleeves because I'm not a fan of my arms, especially in the winter. It has an empire waist and ties in the back so it's really flattering, even if your stomach sticks out farther than your boobs (ma-wah!). I love this dress and Chris loves it more. The colors are great and it can be worn through spring and even summer, without the blazer.


And of course, the La'Rue Essential Top. I wear this shirt once, sometimes twice a week. Becka left me this shirt when she was in St. Louis over Thanksgiving. I love it because I can wear it to work with dress pants and a statement necklace or with skinny jeans and the Bailey Infinity Scarf in the knight color. These shirts are tighter on the arms and have a loose fitting on the sides. Perfect with jeggings or for a Chinese food buffet. I paired my La'Rue essential with skinny jeans from Limited and Nine West pumps. I love the color of the Bailey Infinity Scarf (Knight) because you can wear it with black, gray, or brown.



Do you want some new clothes to get through the January blues? It's so easy to win!  There will be one $50 winner from my blog and one from instagram.

To enter to win the $50 giveaway from my blog, just enter the rafflecoptor below. For an extra entry, tell us what you would buy with $50 from Kiki La'Rue! And if you are shopping today, then use the coupon code "jacksally10" to get 10% off your order!




Now jump over to instagram to try and win $50 over there too!!

  11. Hello Gorgeous! I can so totally relate to your dislike of selfies. I feel ridiculous taking them . . . even when I'm in an actual outfit that would be note worthy. You look awesome though so get it girl!!

    I'm a KLR virgin but if I were spending $50, I like the Maddie tops in bright colors, any of the red jewelry, the deck the halls and black button back tops and the infinity scarf you are wearing.

    Stay warm! Love reading your blog!

  75. I think I NEED that essential top. You look fabulous in both but that top just looks so easy. For some reason I've had a mental block with these tops and feel like I'd just look like a short bus in one but I love it paired with the skinny jeans and scarf. May have to get over my fear and get one!

    ReplyDelete
  130. 1. You look amazing in both those outfits! For realz. Very flattering. And I love your selfies. Your smile makes me smile.

    2. I've never looked at KLR's page (shocking admission). I know that a lot of people I follow love her and her clothes though. But honestly, I don't love shopping that much (big girl insecurity?). BUT, reading that she gave you 1k for your marathon just tipped me over the edge!!! In this global economy where vendors are a dime a dozen, it feels really good to patronize someone that gives back! Becka is by all accounts a class act and I'll go check out her store fo shiz.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I would love anything!!!!!!!!!! especially love there shirts,they always look so comfy

  145. I completely sympathize with you about the stir crazy behavior associated with being locked inside the house. Me and my toddler are attempting to stay productive, but you hit the nail on the head when you said you can't possibly expect anything to stay clean. My house is a disaster.
    BTW I really like that Maddie top.
