Strut Your Stuff Saturday Link Party (and $100 Shabby Apple Gift Card Giveaway)

 Thanks for coming to party with us!  Hope you have had a great week!
I have spent the last week relaxing at home with two cute boys!

Our sweet, little Parker joined us Sunday morning!  He is such a good baby and his big brother, Camden, won’t leave his side.  Thank you so much for all the kind words and prayers.
It means the world to me!

We have a big surprise for you today:
Today we are giving away a 
$100 Shabby Apple Gift Card
 to a lucky reader!
Shabby Apple is one of our favorite go-to shops for beautiful (and modest) dresses, skirts, tops, swimwear and accessories. They also have a maternity line (some of our favorite maternity clothes have been found here!) and a darling kids and preteen line.
Their “Twin Palm” line is one of my favorite collections ever- it has such a fun vintage kick, but is so cute and modern! Check out some of my favorites from that line:

1. Racquet Club Navy and White Dress 
This dress is my favorite- I love the colors, the stripes, the nautical feel . . . and that red waistband looks amazing!

2. Twin Palms 
The color of this dress is perfect for summer . . . and I LOVE those big white buttons!

3. Rhapsody Dress
To me, this dress looks like something Princess Kate would wear . . . it’s sexy and sophisticated. And I love all the colors it comes in!

Shabby Apple sent our sister Camille this amazing Serenade dress . . . I love that maxi dresses are in style right now (they should be a staple in your wardrobe whether you are pregnant or not!). Don’t you just love that bright color?!
Camille said that this is by far her favorite dress that she has ever owned- the fit is fantastic (she says it will be perfect after she is done being pregnant . . . only 11 weeks to go!), the quality is amazing, the fabric is soft and incredibly comfortable, but still dressy enough that it looks good and she gets comments on it everywhere she goes. The colors that it comes in are PERFECT for summer. It really is the cutest dress!

These Baked Vanilla Bean Doughnuts from a Pumpkin and a Princess would be perfect for your 4th of July breakfast (or dessert)!

These 4×4 4th of July Firecrackers from The Happy Scraps
are so cute!  What a darling way to make your home feel a little more patriotic for the 4th of July!

Looking for a light, summer dinner?  These Veggie Tostadas from From Valerie’s Kitchen would be a healthy, delicious choice!

It’s Overflowing shared these Simple Cheesecake Tarts that are made with only 5 ingredients!  A refreshing dessert for a hot summer day!

My husband and I are in the process of buying our first home so I am always on the lookout for ideas.  I absolutely love this tutorial for DIY Wainscoting from Southern Lovely!

    Have had some trouble with posting comments, hope this one works! I would like SixSisters and Shabby Apple multiple times if i could, since I love the recipes and the dresses. I have been eyeing the Oh baby dress for a while…

    Congrats on the birth of your sweet baby boy, Elyse. I hadn’t heard your happy news until a day or two ago! What on earth are you doing blogging??? HA HA! Go lie down. Or go take a nap. HA! And be sure to cuddle that adorable baby for me. My goodness, he’s a lover. SO happy for you. Hope you’re feeling well!

    OH my goodness! Thanks for letting the world know about Shabby Apple! I have fallen in LOVE!If I were to win the Giftcard I would purchase the Sirena Bathing suit, it would be a perfect suit to take my girls to pool in. I have Liked, and shared this contest on Facebook & Pinterest. And what a beautiful baby you have there!

    We are blessing my baby next month and I would love to get a new dress that I feel comfortable and not so post partum chubby in for her special day! I especially love the Phi Beta Kappa dress. Thank you for the chance to enter! Congrats on darling baby Parker!! (I have a Parker of my own! :) )

    I’ve ‘liked’ shabby apple on Facebook for quite a while now.

    I’d also like to enter again by sharing that i would have loved to get a bathing suit from their stardust inn collection, but i don’t see it there any longer… so i would have to go with something nautical from the set sail collection like the Overboard dress :)

    so hard to pick just one thing… Shabby Apple has so many sweet options! I think I might go with the Elizabeth Islands Grey Maxi… as first choice… then perhaps, the Maxi “Desert Moderna” very elegant , yet somewhat also casual chic… Then of course how can we resist the Che Bella Maxi!? It is gorgeous… and the Serenade Maxi in Coral would be beautiful as well!… thanks so much for a wonderful opp!
