It’s that day, isn’t it? That ‘back-to-work/back-to-the-grind’ day? I think so. It is for me anyway. It’s also day two of the new year, and week 27 of this wild ride they call pregnancy. I have to admit – the first two trimesters seemed to fly by, and suddenly I feel like things got put into slow motion. Maybe it’s a little bit of anxious anticipation about the trimester three symptoms I’ve been hearing about – the restlessness, the exhaustion, the inability to get comfortable, the aggravated aches and pains. It feels like I just need to hold my breath for the next three months and pray it goes by quickly and painlessly. (aaaand everyone reading this who has kids thinks to themselves ‘dream on sista’. I know – I know.)

Well if you’ve followed this blog much, you’ll know that I love me a good statement necklace. I feel like they’re the easiest (and my favorite) way to glam up an outfit or to add the finishing touch. I love this statement necklace by designer David Aubrey via Favery. It’s so unique and pretty – unlike any other necklace I own. Favery carries pieces from a variety of designers, all of which are so different and striking. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you should.

Favery is offering all GBO readers 10% off using code NewYear10. Coupon code expires on 1/12.

Have a lovely Thursday! Thanks for reading. xoxo

New Year Giveaway with

January 1, 2014

Happy New Year friends! Hope your NYE was simply marvelous and ended with a smooch from someone real special. And now here we are – the first day of a brand new year. Full of the promise and possibility that new beginnings always offer. I mentioned in my new year’s day post last year that I’m not one to set a whole bunch of new year’s resolutions – mostly because I like to set goals throughout the year as opposed to just once. I’m also a firm believer in tweaking your goals as necessary, setting new ones when needed, and recommitting yourself as often as necessary. Recommitment – I love that word. I love that concept. Most of my new year’s goals fall into that category – recommitting myself to a few of the goals that I already had and that matter to me most. Furthermore, the addition of a new little angel into our family will be quite the under-taking in and of itself, so I’m sure that will keep me plenty busy in the goal-setting department!

To help enable your success in your New Year Resolutions, whatever they may be, I’ve teamed up with a bunch of fabulous bloggers and to give away $500 to a store of your choice (or Amazon)! There are so many amazing New Year sales going on right now, and is a perfect place to start because you’re able to find all the great deals in one place!

To win, complete the entries through the Rafflecopter below — each entry you complete will give you more chances to win the gift card!

This giveaway will be open until January 7th at midnight and is open to US residents only. 

Good luck!!

The Top G’s of 2013…

December 31, 2013

I had originally started this post with sappy writing, dripping with sentiment of the nostalgic, reflective kind. Then I thought ‘Save it Willardson – this is a fashion blog.’  And so it is, and so I’ve done. I’ll warn you that I don’t think that fact will spare these pages from ever hosting my original tender feelings that are of a more serious nature. However, for today, light-heartedness has won the battle. You’re welcome.

Seeing as how this IS a fashion blog (fashion? personal style? whatevs.), I thought it might be fun to round up the top-rated outfits on GBO in 2013. These were the ensembs that garnered the highest number of G’s. If you’re new here and have no clue what the deuce GBO stands for, now would be a good time to learn. And if you’re not someone who usually rates the outfits, perhaps you should make that one of your new year’s resolutions eh? Clicking one of those three little buttons can actually be quite fun, you know. Plus, how would I have known that you all hated the very last ensemble in this line-up if so many of you hadn’t pressed ‘B’? See? Fun times. And helpful, cuz goodness knows I’ll never be caught dead in that outfit again. Oh the lessons we learn. With no further adieu…

Guys, ^ that ^ outfit won the ‘Bad’ category by a landslide. Haha – I love it. Thanks for the honesty. That IS the whole point of this here blog, after all: Be inspired by the G’s and learn how to avoid the B’s!

Here’s to the last day in the year 2013! Hope yours is absolutely marvelous.

Thanks for reading. xoxo
