Calling all Trendsetters + a trendy GIVEAWAY

(Disclaimer: This giveaway is sponsored by bellezamia. All opinions, photography, and gorgeous models are our own. Thank you for supporting the businesses that support this blog!)

Yup, we’re looking for YOU… as in all of the trendsetters & fashionistas that tune in each day. First off, we would like need to congratulate you for being so darn brave & beautiful. How the heck do you do it?! I mean seriously… we totally admire you and your fashion forward self.

bootsDon’t get us wrong, we love a cute outfit just as much as the next girl, but we definitely would NOT call ourselves trendsetters in the world of fashion (we wish!). We’ll stick to the hot glue guns, power tools and washi tape. However, we know that some people totally have the “eye” for making an outfit look flawless while being ahead of trends.

My baby sister, Maggie, is one of those people.

magYou may remember Maggie from when we gave her city space a makeover this summer. Well today, Maggie is baaaackkkk on the blog & celebrating a birthday! Making over her apartment was fun and stress-free because we totally nailed her decor style. However, decor isn’t her thing… fashion is. Here lies the dilemma.

Awesome to have a sister that is amazing in fashion 364 days a year a.k.a built in stylist and professional clothes lender. Not awesome to have a fashionista sister 1 day per year a.k.a. hardest birthday shopping ever. Ugh, what do you get a girl who is trendy when you’re two steps behind in the fashion game? Well, after searching and shopping, I decided simple was best.

When we found this Etsy shop, I immediately thought of Maggie. The pieces are so feminine and classic. We love that these pieces are more simple and can be mixed and matched with almost anything… very versatile. Maggie doesn’t wear a ton of what I call “daily jewelry” so I thought this simple necklace could be something she could wear daily.
necklaceI went with this piece specifically because Maggie wears a lot of gold. But gosh, we had a hard time choosing. This arrow, this wishbone, this personalized pennant- each was a close contender. After some serious indecisiveness, I went with the circle because it could double as a symbolic and sentimental piece. Our last name begins with “O” and the circle also reminded me of forever. This may be quite a leap, but I hope when she wears this piece she thinks about the most important part of our life (our family) and also remembers that regardless of what life presents… sisters are forever, so she’s stuck with me (foreva)!O
The birthday girl absolutely loved it! She has added it to her daily jewelry routine, which is kind of a big deal if you ask me. I hope she remembers who gave this gem to her come Christmas time… (cough, cough). haha Just kiddddinnggggg. #kinda
