RED HAT, RED SHOES (& A GIVEAWAY!) [CLOSED]

I just got this red hat the other day and although it’s still pretty hot in the afternoons here so there’s no reason I should be wearing a winter hat, I’m still finding an excuse to wear it almost every day. I haven’t worn a beanie in years, so I think I’m just making up for lost time…so many beanie wearing opportunities missed!! 
Also, I was kind of worried about pairing red shoes and a red hat (in my head it seemed a little too loud), but as soon as I put them on and realized they were identical shades of red and together they added a perfect pop of color to a dark outfit, I was totally in love. New favorite combo. 
. . . . . . . . . . 
today I’m partnering with ShoeMint to give away a pair of free shoes to one lucky winner! Have you heard of ShoeMint? They’re a fabulous free, members-only website with gorgeous, high quality and affordable shoes designed by Rachel Bilson and Nicole Chavez and manufactured by Steve Madden. They’re constantly adding new, on-trend styles to the site, and they always have free shipping and returns (a huge selling point for me). Enter to win a pair below! 
To Enter: 
  • sign up to become a ShoeMint member (completely free, takes 2 seconds, and gives you 20% off your first order!), and then come back here and leave a comment telling me which pair of shoes you would get if you won. Please include your email address in the comment so you can be contacted if you win.

this giveaway will be open for one week, closing next Tuesday, November 26th, at midnight. It is open to US and Canada residents only. Good luck!
