Summer inspired Giveaway!!!

If you have ever been to Las Vegas in the summer, there is one thing you are sure to notice. It is HOT. I have been down to California to visit family. I brought back all the cousins over the age of five for cousins camp. They stayed at my house last night and then we drove up to the cabin today. The California cousins wanted to play outside yesterday afternoon. I kept telling them that this was not like the 60 degree weather they were used to in California.

Finally when the sun went down I let them go outside to play a bit. Berkeley, my 9 year old nephew, walked out and then came in and said, "but it will get cool when it gets dark, right?" I laughed. Yeah --- No. It doesn't get cool in Vegas. It gets less scalding hot but it is still 100 degrees in the night.

The Vegas heat makes for challenges in dressing modestly in the summer. There are so few modest clothes in the stores. Many of my friends use undershirts and layer to make things modest. But I just hate layering. Who wants another layer of anything when it is 110 degrees outside? Not me. 

So when I found the Shabby Apple company, which was started to make fashionable modest clothes that  don't need layers -- well I thought, "this is the place for me." I have found so many fun stylish dresses on the site. I recently got this dress in the mail and wore it this weekend to my brother's twins' baby blessing. It was so comfortable, well made, and super cute.

So in honor of summer I am going to do a giveaway for a $50 credit to Shabby Apple.  You go over to their site and check it out. Then leave me a comment telling me one of your favorite items on the site. They have women's, girls, preteens, shoes, bags, accessories. 

On July 15th at 10 a.m. PST I will randomly pick one of the comments as the winner and post the winner. The winner will have 24 hours to email me to claim the prize. If they don't email me I will pick another winner and give them 24 hours. I will email the winner a $50 credit to Shabby Apple.

So bring on your comments and let me know what you love on the Shabby Apple site.
