my outfit: stella & dot giveaway!

There are words coming out of my mouth right now.  It may be hard to hear them... I understand that.


You are probably looking at this gorgeous necklace and asking yourself...
"where did she get this beauty?"
"can I have one for myself?"
"wait, didn't she say there was a giveaway in here some where?"
"I should just scroll directly down to the bottom, let's figure this thing out."


Well, I was saying something... I was actually saying how I used to get rid of clothes that I never wore. But now I hoard them.  These pants and this tank are older than old.  And look, they are still in style. (or at least I hope they are... because I'm wearin' 'em like they are) So this former clothes minimalist has turned hoarder.


I guess that was all I was saying.  Now on to the GOOD stuff!


Kelly Gartner, Independent Stylist for Stella and Dot, a fabulous sponsor of this blog is giving away this gorgeous necklace that I am wearing to one of my readers!  Kelly of Stella and Dot has been a sponsor of good life for less for a while and has recently quit her day job to pursue her Stella and Dot career full time.  So while you are at it... check out a little bit about the business (it's a great opportunity for women!) and let me know if you want her personal email for any questions you may have for her - she is open to any and all!

Back to the giveaway details... (don't forget to read these through!)
1. You must "follow" good life for less... click in the sidebar if you haven't before.
2. Pop on over to Stella and Dot and check out their amazing jewelry and fun inspiration.
3. Leave a comment on how you would style it... that would be fun, huh!?!?
4. Tweet about the giveaway for an additional entry (you have to leave an addition comment as well)
5. Blog about the giveaway for an additional entry (you have to leave an additional comment as well) and leave a link to the post in your comment.
6. "Like" Kelly's Stella & Dot Facebook page.


GOOD LUCK!

How would I style this necklace?! I'd probably (finally) try my hand at color blocking or wear it with a simple white button up, shorts, and strappy sandals. I'm not very fashionable but this necklace would definitely help me out. :) (And I am a follower.)

I would wear it with a printed dress and wedge sandals.... actually, that is how I will wear it to a friend's tea party if I won it :)

You're so cute!

I'm a follower. Definitely.

I would style it with the strapless navy dress that I just got on sale at Gap. This would be the perfect compliment to an otherwise simple outfit.

Thanks for such a great giveaway!

Great necklace! Love Stella & Dot!

I would wear it with my favorite white T-shirt that has sequins and my white capris and gray sparkly shoes!

Thanks!!

I love your hair like this too!

Val Fox said...

I would pair this gorgeous necklace with a black tank top and my new white skinny pants rolled up. Just a simple summer looked jazzed up by the necklace.

What a great giveaway...thanks! Loving this necklace. I would pair it with a simple black sundress and sandals. I have an anniversary party and a shower coming up and that sounds like the perfect outfit for either!. Love the yellow tank top by the way!

Elizabeth Pallardy said...

I think this necklace would be great with a maxi dress, I can't decide if I would like it with black or a bold color like teal or magenta. Paired with some simple sandles - maybe some with a little silver in them- the necklace is bold enough to hold it's own. It would be a great piece to add to my vacation/beach wear for the summer.

Super cute necklace! I am a follower through Google FC.

I'd pair this item with a turquoise-ish dolman sleeve top (w/zipper detail at the top of the back - from LOFT), white pants or jeans and either a nude pump (for work) or sandal (for an upcoming bridal shower).

With this being a pretty fancy necklace, I love pairing fancy accessories with plainer clothing pieces...so maybe jean short cutoffs and a t-shirt with this gorgeous necklace. I love it...and I love your blog =)

SUCH a gorgeous necklace. I'd pair it with a lightweight sleeveless top, peachy or taupe, and a short bubble-hem skirt in a brighter color like melon or emerald. Then I'd add a thick belt and nude-colored heels and be good to go.

Nessa said...

I love this necklace... i would wear with a jazzy skirt and neutral scoop neck top... so it would stand out.

I have actually been drooling over this necklace! I adore Stella & Dot, in fact I'm having my first Trunk Show on July 19th! (just in time to see the fall line!)

I would style this necklace by making a simple outfit a little bit more interesting. I love how you have it here with a simple tank and blazer. It's such a statement piece, and would work with so many outfits!!

Good luck to everyone!!

Hi Jill, love that necklace! I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding in September, and my dress is a simple pink strapless one. It needs a beautiful statement necklace, and the one you're giving away would be perfect! *fingers crossed*

Laura said...

Love to wear it with a simple v-neck dress!

Jackie said...

Oh man, I love this outfit on you! And of course these items are still in style-stripes and white pants? Classics of course. The necklace is pretty too. I would probably use it to snazzy up a super basic outfit of a crew neck tee and jean shorts. Just for fun. P.S.-Your hair is seriously rocking my world lately.

Christa said...

I am a follower and would wear this with maybe my red maxi dress or black t-shirt and denim skirt. It would add so much! Thank you. Have fun in Seattle.

That necklace is gorgeous! I would style the necklace with a bold patterned skirt, a coordinating basic tank, and a pair of strappy sandals.

Elena said...

Hi Jill!
I would style it with a spaghetti strap dress, very simple so the necklace would stand out, and pair it with metallic heels. Pop!
