>Giveaway! A Summer Vacation Staple


Floppy c/o D&Y
D&Y sent me this adorable floppy last week, and I literally squealed when I opened the package. For a split second, I thought about keeping it all to myself. But then I realized that this cute little  number needs to soak up some summer sun somewhere festive and fun; and there’s a good chance I won’t see far beyond the four walls of the flower shop through August.

So, here’s where you come in, lovely readers. One lucky lady is going to give this hat a new home and take it on the vacation it deserves.

To enter: Follow APP and D&Y on Facebook, and leave a comment telling me about your summer plans so I can live vicariously through your vacations and getaways by Sunday night at 9:00pm EST. I’ll announce a winner next week!

UPDATE: It seems there may be some issues with my comment system here on APP, so if you’re having trouble, leave your summer plans on the Facebook page and I’ll count those, too!

  • This summer, I am traveling all over America, from Colorado to Florida! I would love to wear this hat out on the beaches in Charleston while I sit with my favorite beach read! Next summer though, I’m jetting off to England for a getaway with my best friend in her home town of Oxford.

  • >That is an absolutely perfect summer hat! I fear you won't be able to live vicariously through me, though, as I'm teaching summer school all summer. I do have big plans, however, to do some fun weekend getaways, so theoretically I'll see some sun, sand, and surf eventually…
