Happy Monday!
I'm excited to share the collaboration that Moon & Lola and I have been working on for quite some time now. We are giving away this gorgeous metal state necklace to one lucky Gracefullee Made reader! The best part about Moon & Lola is the fact that their jewelry is all handcrafted, which means the winner doesn't have to be from NC. You can pick ANY state you like ;)

Gracefullee Made Loves Moon & Lola

Okay. I'm the worst at keeping in big surprises.
Which is why you've probably seen me hint at an upcoming collaboration with Moon & Lola on twitter, or instagram, or even my FB page. Or... I may have even told a couple of my friends. Oops.
Well, here it is: Moon & Lola and I are collaborating together for a fun giveaway! 

Ever since I attended the NC SBS Moon & Lola event in the beginning of this month I've been obsessed with all their meticulous handmade jewelry. I mean... from monograms to acrylics to chain necklaces to chunky pearl necklaces... how can you not be in love, is the real question.

I'm announcing the big surprise of WHAT we're giving away on the blog on MONDAY.
So be sure to come stop by next week to see what it is to enter!

The Long And Short Of It

After scrolling through endless Coachella pics on instagram and twitter, I was feeling slightly inspired to put together my own little 'if-I-was-off-to-Coachella' look. 
Even though I visited Coachella Valley in SoCal back in December, (remember my Cali trip here + here?) I decided to put on this kimono cardigan from Jane and this light (oldie but a goodie) Louis Vuitton scarf and enjoy the breezy weather from the weekend.
Jane is a site that features new handmade and boutique items every day. They usually run 55-65 new deals a day with deals for less. Which also means an endless amount of scrolling! 
Be sure to check their FB page: Very Jane
What are your favorite Coachella looks?
P.S. Have you entered the Luna Marin giveaway?

Luna Marin Giveaway

I'm all about putting a unique twist on a classic piece.
I added my vintage Chanel brooch to this White Plum Boutique dress (LBD). I love how the tiny gold studded details and the brooch complement each other. The A-line skirt of this dress is quite flattering, and the low v-back makes it the perfect summer dress for any outdoor activities. 

Also, I'm excited to announce that I am collaborating with Luna Marin to give away a strand-set bracelet! Strands by Luna Marin is a collection that features unique, tangle-free bracelets with interchangeable Strands that you can switch up as often as your style! The best part is that you get to pick your own Strands, which means you can mix and match to make your own combinations. 

For more information on the bracelets, you can check out their "Build Your Bracelet" guide { here }.

 Luna Marin has also been kind enough to offer a 10% discount code for my readers:
You can use it on any Luna Marin purchase from April 21st - May 7th!

Make sure to enter!
