Lace Romper and Lace Up Sandals + Linkup + Watch Giveaway!

Lace Romper and Lace Up Sandals

I’m officially calling this the Summer of the lace romper, or any romper really. Maybe I’m taking style cues from my baby girl (because babies in rompers are the cutest), or maybe because I just keep seeing them pop up in stores and wanting them, but I can’t get enough of them. And I honestly don’t love the shape I am right now or my legs, but I’m not really doing much about it either, so be it. I’ll be rocking rompers this Summer if you like it or not!

But I am also calling this the Summer of lace up sandals as well, because they are everywhere right now. While I will be the first to admit, that they might not be the easiest things to put on, but once they are on, boy are they pretty!! And so perfect for Summer vacations or just going to the beach in! Also… keep on reading for an awesome GIVEAWAY and to link up your fashion posts!

    Hey! Lovely pictures <3
    So… About the watch. I haven't had a wtch since i was twelve, and it was a FlikFlak Swatch one. i still have it but don't use it for obvious reasons. I have literally fallen in love with the DW watches, ever since I saw an instagram post of one two years ago. However I don't have the money to buy one and my mom doesnt either, and she believes the watches aren't worth it. And also, there's no more open giveaways of these watches! Basically, this is my only chance to get a DW watch, if I don't get it this time, I wont ever and I'll have to stick to an ugly flik flak watch, because I'm really needing a watch right now.
    Thanks for this great giveaway!
    PS: love from Paris :*
