laser cut midi and chambray (+ an alex and ani giveaway)

wit & whimsy I laser cut midi + lace up sandals

Another day…another midi skirt (last one seen here.) I’m seriously in love with this silhouette and while typically I prefer it with heels, I took these photos while still on my flats-routine due to last week’s half marathon! I adore the volume and texture in this skirt and it reminds me of playing dress up with my sister Shannon when we were little. We were mildly obsessed with the movie Hello Dolly and would dress up as the shop girls by piling on every skirt we owned in the “dress up box.” The bathroom served as our hat shop and our younger brothers were forced to play along (sorry, Sean! sorry, Kevin!) A few other midis that I like if you want to try this shape out can be spotted here, here and here (all under $100.)

Alex and Ani Bracelet Giveaway

Now to the exciting news…with a giveaway! I was first introduced to Alex and Ani on a trip to Nantucket nearly four years ago. I was there for work (talk about a dream work trip!) and had some free time so I wandered around and happened upon a pop up of Alex and Ani in a little market. I bought a necklace and continued to go to the brand for affordable and fun jewelry many years later. (I’ve since visited their stores in both New York City and Boston.) Their most iconic pieces are their charm bracelets which stack easily and make great gifts so I’m excited to be partnering with Alex and Ani today for the latest giveaway to celebrate this blog’s new look!

The winner of the giveaway (see entering details below!) will get their own stack of 6 Alex and Ani bracelets (worth a retail value of $160-170!) including a personalized initial bracelet (my favorite.)

And a word about these sandals – how cool are they? They are largely sold out at most retailers but still available here if you want them. They may be a pain to put on (read: don’t even think about wearing them to an airport!) but I love the look of them and they filled a serious hole in my shoe wardrobe given I had no gladiator styles. Not to mention they are comfortable and will go so well with denim shorts this summer. (Other options that are slightly less expensive can be found here, here and here.)
