A Very Basic Giveaway

Well, it’s here, fashion’s favorite season…fall. Instead of celebrating by kicking it off with a fashion forward, Paris Fashion Week worthy look, I put something deliciously “basic” together. I couldn’t bring myself to wear Uggs for a shoot, I tried but I just couldn’t do it; and the Starbucks drink is in fact a Caramel Apple Spice, not the famed PSL because, well…I think they taste like crap. But!…look at this hat!…and the scarf!…and the sweater! This is as basic as it gets for me anymore people! Since I do love the season so much, and since I think it’s a lot of fun to kid about it’s stereotypes, I’ve decided to put together a Very Basic Giveaway for all of you. Read on to find out how to enter…


I bought this hat and scarf for myself a couple of weeks ago and I just loved them so much that I wanted to give a set away to one of my amazing readers. They are this season’s “it” colors (in case you didn’t know) so they will be a very current update to someone’s fall wardrobe.



Included with the hat and scarf is a $75 gift card to Starbucks. That’s 15 Pumpkin Spice Latte’s people!!!



This sweater, while not included in the giveaway, is an absolute must-have with its cropped length and flutter-bell sleeves. I haven’t stopped wearing it since I got it. I will link to it at the bottom in case you decide to treat yo’ self (consolation prize if you don’t win the giveaway?).



Feeling that fall fever yet? If this doesn’t put you in the mood I don’t know what will…maybe I could try an at-home shoot all cuddled up in luxurious blankets, reading a book with a hot tea nestled in my hands. But there still won’t be Uggs. Sorry.

In any case, if you’d like your shot at winning these beauts, it’s pretty dang simple; because that’s me, I love ya’ll I really don’t want to make you jump through crazy hoops to win some fall goodness.

I digress…

all you must do leave a comment on this blog post. Seriously.

*however* in the comment, please share your favorite thing about fall. It could be a memory, a song, fashion, food, anything. Just tell me what autumnal item sets your heart a-flutter.

Wait, there’s more…

for a second entry, head on over to my Instagram

Once you’re there, find the picture of me in this outfit and follow the instructions. Like I said, this will give you a second entry to the giveaway.


In all seriousness, while I have fun joking about the “basic-ness” of the season, don’t ever let anyone ever make you feel stupid for what you like. If plaids, infinity scarves, leggings, and Ugg boots happen to be your forever thing, then you ROCK IT unapologetically. Don’t change you because someone else wants to judge you for it…that’s dumb.

Just had to get that out there.

Good luck on the giveaway, I wish each and every one of you could win!

  • My favorite memory of fall is sitting in my dad’s office, clothed in my favorite overalls, doing math by the open window. The cold breeze was suppose to help keep my awake (since it was Texas, this was probably more like January) but that memory concreted in my memory as the essence of fall.

  • I love the crisp cool weather in the Fall! It’s great for walks in the beautiful leaves!

  • My favorite thing is sweater weather, like your sweater! Instagram: allyski25

  • I LOVE the cozy weather and the clothes that come with it!!!

  • My favorite thing about fall is that the weather is cool enough for us to light the firepit, sit out and enjoy something hot and yummy, and snuggle in some warm throws. I entered on IG as desert_dance

  • My favorite memory is driving around Cherry Creek and looking at all the old trees turing colors and going for hikes up in the mountains. It was our first fall as a married couple, and then we had to move from Denver, but those memories burn so bright in my heart. 🍂💜

  • Favorite thing about fall is watching college football games with my daughter at her school.

  • Just moved up to the PNW and experiencing my first Fall! I am awestruck by the natural beauty around me! The blues, the greens, the bursts of yellow, orange and red among the green, it all just takes your breath away! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  • my favorite fall memory actually happened last fall! my family and i all went apple picking at this little farm and it was just so so magical. plusss we ate apple pies, turnovers, baked apples and more for weeks. heavenly

  • Halloween is hands down the best thing about fall. Though I also love the seasonal outfit switch from tank tops and sandles to sweaters and boots. That’s something to look forward to here in the PNW. 😁😁

  • I’m always excited to pull out my sweaters and boots!!

  • Entering here too (@jessiemayf)! In addition to my love for soup that I mentioned on IG, I have to say my favorite fall clothing item is my camel-colored, oversized cashmere turtleneck. I long for these chilly nights where I can throw on this exquisitely soft sweater. Plus, the neutral color lets me pair it with more bright or patterned scarves, coats, and beanies. It’s the perfect heirloom piece in my collection. Happy fall, everyone!
