Outfit Post: Half-Up Top Knot & a Mint Julep Giveaway!

I have a confession. I tried the Half Up Top Knot hairstyle.... and didn't hate it. I wanted to. I wanted to hate it oh-so-bad. But truth be told, I didn't. Don't get me wrong - it felt weird at first. Almost like I was in the middle of drying my hair by sections, and forgot to finish the top. But once I got passed that awkward stage, I liked it. No... I loved it.

Silver Metallic Birkenstock Lookalike Sandals

P.S. I also never thought I'd see the day when I would wear these kinds of sandals. But I'm just breaking all kinds of my so-called "Never Ever Will I Ever" thoughts. When I saw these silver ones online, I just had to have them. So I also bought them in blue (eeek!) See this is why you should never drink wine and shop online after 9 PM.

Let's talk about how amazing my 3rd new obsession is. The Mint Julep Boutique. Have you shopped there before? A few months ago, I had some girls RAVE to me about them and boy were they right. Mint Julep has tons (and I mean TONS) of cute clothes at fabulous, affordable prices. When they asked me to partner with them, I was more than happy to. I mean, I was already a fan! 

This sweatshirt is totally a tunic, but I'm so short that I loved wearing it as a casual dress. It was the perfect lazy Sunday afternoon outfit. Besides, isn't pink always a good idea? I just added some fun and dressy accessories that keep this casual look still put together. Personally, I think this tunic is going to be my new go-to for casual looks. I love the way it's paired with skinny jeans here.

Now onto something fun for YOU! Mint Julep is offering BAD readers a $25 gift card! All you have to do is enter the below Rafflecopter. I mean, who could turn that down? I can't wait to see who wins!
