What I Wore & a Giveaway: Red, White & Blue

With the 4th of July just three days away, I wanted to go patriotic with a red, white and blue ensemble! I got this white jumpsuit to wear to an all white party, and it's so comfy that I could pretty  much wear it to bed...haha! I paired it with a small red bag from Forever 21, my cobalt blue pumps and my brand new blue tassel necklace from Amrita Singh! It's unlike any other piece of jewelry I own at the moment which is why I am so excited to be wearing it with my Independence Day outfit. You'll have the chance to win the exact tassel necklace I have on by entering the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of my post - don't miss out! :)

I also want to give a shout out to Ashley at Salon Capri for my brand new cut and balayage highlights, and to Living Proof for sending me some amazing anti-frizz hair products so I can keep my hair sleek and straight on these humid summer days!

{CLOSED} Giveaway: GLOW for a cause

Happy Wednesday! I'm excited to be teaming up with GLOW for a cause today to offer you a giveaway for one of my favorite things in the world: perfume! :) GLOW founder Johanna is a Bostonian who lives in Denver now and started her company because she's just as passionate about beautiful scents as I am and wants to give back to charities that are meaningful to her, including the Red Sox Foundation and a no-kill animal shelter in Denver called MaxFund. {Did I mention she has 4 adorable pugs?! They are too cute!}

GLOW offers a variety of high quality, natural bath & body products including perfume oils & solids, body butters, soaking salts, facial treatments, lip balm, and baby products. Johanna donates 5% of each sale's profits to her five favorite charities, so not only do the products make you feel good when you wear them, you can feel good about buying them knowing that you're supporting a good cause. She was kind enough to send me a full size perfume oil, solid perfume and body butter in the Inspire scent, which is a light & refreshing floral that I've fallen in love with. The winner of this giveaway will receive the same set! :)

What I Wore: Tropical Romper

Welcome back to Cupcakes & Couture! I appreciate you sticking with me while I took a short break to get caught up on everything happening in my life. :) I'm back today with a new outfit post that I'm super excited about because I FINALLY found a romper that I love! It took me a while to find one that had both a print and fit I liked, but this one from WAYF is great because the shorts aren't too short and I like that it has sleeves to balance out the bottom half. I wore it on Memorial Day with my vintage yellow Gucci purse, DVF espadrilles and some of my fun, new jewelry which was graciously sent to me by Sparkles & Pop!

Another standout piece of this outfit is my new wooden watch from Jord. I've never owned or even heard of a wooden watch before, so when Jord reached out to me and asked if I'd like to try one of theirs, I chose the gorgeous light maple and rose gold Sidney watch. I love the Swarovski crystals that circle the face and the pretty rose gold dials and crowns on the side. Since you can customize Jord watches to your exact wrist size, my watch is really comfortable because it fits me perfectly! I also love how lightweight it is compared to heavier metal watches - it's almost like I'm not wearing anything on my right wrist at all. I definitely recommend checking out Jord for yourself as well as the men in your life because they make some cool men's watches too!
