Happy Labor Day!
I’d like to introduce you to a company that I’ve recently come to know. Soft Surroundings! When they contacted me for a possible collaboration, I was surprised and thrilled. I immediately went to their website to “check them out.” The name Soft Surroundings is PERFECT for the merchandise they offer which includes women’s apparel, beauty products, accessories, and home furnishings & decor. I did not hesitate to accept the offer. I agreed to review an item of my choice and to host a giveaway for you guys. Sounds fun! Right?
I chose this Marrakech Skirt not only b/c it looked beautiful on the model, but b/c I wanted a piece that could transition from late summer to early fall. The soft fabric (cotton), the flowing pleats, and an eye-catching design proved to be a winner in my humble opinion. But, let me tell you, it was NOT easy to choose just one item…you’ll know what I mean after you get a chance to browse thru their gorgeous offerings.
Now for the giveaway….I chose this Silk Zanzibar Scarf. The rich colors grabbed my attention immediately, and I thought it would be a perfect addition to YOUR fall wardrobe.
If you get a chance to visit Soft Surroundings, let me know what you think of their products.
If you would like to be included in the the giveaway drawing, just let me know by leaving your name in the comment box or send me your name via the Contact Me page. You don’t have to be a follower or over 21! 😉
Soft Surroundings is a retailer based in Saint Louis, MO. They currently ship to US addresses so this giveaway is open to US residents only. Sincere apologies to my international friends.
The winner of the scarf will be announced on Monday, September 10th.
I’m linking up with Pattie for Visible Monday and Kristin for Monday Mingle!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Skirt: Soft Surroundings Top: Ann Taylor Bag: Louis Vuitton
Love the top, but didn’t see it on the Soft Surroundings website. Do you know where we could find it or something similar? Just found your blog and I am loving your style.
Hi there! The top is from Ann Taylor. It’s from last season so I’m not sure if they will still have the exact style available. I did see a similar blouse called “cascade ruffle shirt” that looks close to this one on their website. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you find what you’re looking for!
Ah! Too bad I missed the giveaway. Catching up on my blog reading today …
I’m sorry, too. Hopefully, there’ll be more. 😉

Thank you for visiting my blog. It gave me the opportunity to discover yours which I added to my list.
You are indeed a graceful Mom and your family must be proud of you. This skirt is just perfect on you and I like very much the blouse and the belt you picked. What a perfect match and what a lovely way to enter fall !
As for the scarf….I won’t tell enough how I love scarves (and more especially silk ones). The one you show on your page is not only trendy (tangerine… yehhh!). It is simply terrific. Would be really neat on a black outfit!
xo from Florida – where it’s not fall yet. We’ll have to wait a few more weeks………
Thank you for your thoughtful and sweet comment! I was so glad to have found you! I love scarves but only know of limited ways of wearing them. I’ll be learning from you! 🙂
If I’m not too late, I would love to enter! I love the colors of the scarf!
No, you’re not too late. You’re entered. Good luck!
I love that skirt on you – it’s so elegant and chic, and you’ve paired it perfectly! As for the scarf, I ADORE those the rich, festive colors! Please count me in. Thanks for the chance!
Thank you, and good luck!

You’re entered. Yes, my thought exactly!
Thank you for sharing this Jeannie! I love the Style of this brand, I liked their home decor ideas too! This is a lovely shawl you picked, perfect for fall.
I like their home decor, too!…especially the bedding. 🙂
This would be perfect for fall! Thank you!
You’re welcome, and good luck!
I am a scarf girl and LOVE this scarf and the way it is tied in both examples. I have never heard of Soft Surroundings, will check them out and of course, you look as gorgeous as always.
So glad you like the scarf! I think it’s a great one for this fall. Good luck, and thank you!! 🙂
I just found your blog- looking for style for “older” women. Very nice! I am familiar with Soft Surroundings and the scarf is lovely. I would love a chance to win it!
So glad you stopped by! You’re entered. Good luck! 🙂
Darn it! If this was happening in March 2013 I could take part…
Haha. Sorry about that!
I guess this means you’ll be in the US in March? NYC again?
Yes, back to the UN! And this time I will be shopping – yipee!
Oh, yes! You’ve got a lot of making up to do! Maybe I’ll join you! 😉
The skirt reminds me of India!
It is kind of exotic….
I think the skirt was named after a city in Morocco.
I have a relative in the USA … yipppeee (consider me entered)… but now onto the serious business … Jeannie this skirt is absolutely gorgeous and as usual your amazing and effortless style shines through. You have excellent taste! Could you come on over here to Africa and help me with my wardrobe.
Hope alls fabulous on your side of the world.
Haha, you’re in!
Thank you, and is this an invitation? Visiting Africa is on our bucket list! 🙂
Oh, insert my big sad face here! Love the scarf and would love to enter, but alas, I’m in Canada! Still, I absolutely love the outfit this week – just stunning (I think my favourite so far :))
Thank you so much, and I’m sorry!
Jeannie, Congratulations on your new collaboration! I’m sure you’ll do and be great!! ~Patricia
I hope so.

Very elegant look jeannie! Don’t enter me in the giveaway as you know I’m far, far away…..
I know…so so far away!
What a gorgeous skirt!! i love the way you styled it!!! The scarf is stunning!
I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this skirt quite often this fall….prob with a sweater next time?!
I stopped by the site and immediately clicked on ‘shoes’. I really like the “Arapahoe” boots.
Your skirt is a nice transition piece.
Haha, you sound like me. They really do have nice offerings!
thanks for the giveaway! lovely scarf
Thanks for entering! Good luck!
Such a lovely skirt on you, Jeannie! Thanks for commenting on my blog so I could find yours. I’d love to win the gorgeous scarf!!! ~Sarah
So glad you came to visit! Thanks for your comment!
You look so comfortable and classic in that outfit! Great look!
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comment!
I have never heard of of this particular clothing line before but I will definitely check it out! I’m certain the company is thrilled to have you modeling their clothes—you look great in everything! The skirt is really lovely—a perfect summer to fall transition piece! And the scarf you chose is lovely!
Thank you, Marie! You are so sweet!
Glad you like the scarf!
Have a wonderful week! 🙂
beautiful, Jeanie, I’m always looking for something new to wear. Love the skirt!
Good morning, Amy!
Thank you! Me,too! 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
How feminine you look in this number!
PS: Richard says you look like my mom *faint*…. hmmm, I am starting to think so too.
Thank you! Is my looking like your mom a good thing? 😉
I would think so! My mom’s a fashionista herself 😉 She never goes without her stilettos! I am a plain Jane compared to her!
Well, in that case, I’ll take it as a compliment. Thank you!
Undoubtedly! I get all my good looks from her, and not forgetting the creative cells ~ LOL!
I love the look and the skirt! Congratulation on the new collaboration…Sara
Thank you, Sara!
Safe travels to you!
The skirt is beautiful on you. I love how you styled it. Thank you for introducing Soft Surroundings website – they have some cute animal printed flats & great jewelry pieces that I have my eyes out n.
Thank you, Alice!
I have my eye on a few things myself!! Have a great week!
great model for a beautiful skirt! some of my favorite things can be found at soft surroundings.
Thank you Debbie!
I’m guessing you already know of the company…..they DO have some beautiful things, for sure! 🙂
Love the skirt! Its so pretty. I think I have seen this company before. I’m going to check out their site ASAP!
Thanks Lisa! Hope you like what you see! 🙂
Jeannie–It’s a beautiful skirt.
Thanks, Terri! 🙂
It doesn’t surprise me that Soft Surroundings approached you to represent their merchandise. They knew you would wear it well, and you do. Congratulations! Geez, I feel like I’m commenting to a celeb!!
Choke!! I just spit out my water!
You are SO freakin’ funny! LOL! Can’t stop laughing!
Now you’ve got ME laughing! Have a great night!
You, too! 😀
I like the color and the design. Joining your giveaway! ^_^ Thanks for the visit too.
Thanks for entering, Kim!
I’m checking them out. I love the skirt and scarf! This weekend I did a little shopping of my own and loved the fall selection at my favorite retail shops. I found a fun scarf similar to the one featured here. I HEART FALL. Oh, and happy football season, my friend!
Did you go shopping without me? 😀 Hope I get to see some of your selections?
Oh, yes! Football season IS here! Already been to one this past Friday night at the GA Dome! Univ. of TN vs. NC State. It was a GOOD night for UT fans! Hubby & I including!
Sad news fromt the game…a 20 y.o. student from UT fell from the upper level and died. I cannot imagine what his parents are going thru….such a tragedy.
That breaks my heart about one of your students. Celebrations get out of hand sometimes. Like you said, I can’t imagine what the family is dealing with right now.
Lovely outfit. Not only does soft surroundings have wonderful clothes, I noted some great linens. Thanks for the opportunity to win that lovely scarf
I agree! I was actually loving the bedding myself! Too many lovely things there….
Thanks for entering and good luck!
I love how you styled this skirt- perfect transitional piece for Summer to Fall! Soft Surroundings is lucky to have you as a spokesmodel/blogger pal!
You are so sweet, Bella! Thank you! 🙂
Such gorgeous colors and patterns. Perfect attire as we transition into Fall I’m headed over to the link!
I think you just might find their product to your liking.
Very nice skirt…beautiful colors and pattern. Yes, please, I would like to be in the giveaway. I have bought a few items from Soft Surroundings (I think all tops–the navy striped one I wore in a recent post was from them) and I have been happy with them all. The scarf is very pretty too!
How I’ve not heard of them till now is a mystery to me. I really do like everything they offer! Especially the bedding!
Thanks for entering. Good luck!
This skirt is so pretty! Definitely a fantastic fall piece.
Thank you, Alex! I agree! 🙂
this marrakesch skirt is fantastic, jeannie, as made especially for you! i love how you combined it with the blouse and the leather belt.
Thank you so much, Sabine! 🙂
Lovely Long Skirt. I do not like short skirts or skirts that skin tight that much but flowy is always nice. I like the colors of the scarf as it definitely would go along with the fall weather. A hair piece to a simple outfit or a scarf with a simple outfit. Please , if you could..enter my name in the drawing : )
Absolutely Bre! You are entered. Good luck, sweetie!
Both of your selections are lovely. They’d live happily in my closet, too!
Haha…nicely said! Thank you!
Pretty skirt. Pick my name for the drawing Mom! 🙂
Haha….no can do, my daughter! That would be cheating! 😉
Love long skirts! Lookin’ good.
Please enter my name! I love this skirt and scarf from Soft Surroundings! The scarf would go with my wardrobe and be a great addition. You are a gorgeous model for the line! Their new fall catalog has so many great pieces in it…it is hard to pick a favorite. But, it is a must see if you want some great jackets, tops and skirts!
Thank you, Pam!
Are you sure you have room for another scarf??? 😀
Thanks for entering!
Jeannie, this is such an awesome collaboration, you are perfect for Soft Surroundings! I love their stuff and I have a few long skirts from them. They have always had long beautiful skirts and unique items, it is true, it is hard to choose when shopping there, so many pretty things. You look just beautiful, relaxed and at peace; I am sure that lovely skirt has something to do with it. 🙂 Scarf is perfect for Fall.
oh, almost forgot, LOVE the bag. :-D!
Thank you so much, Rachel!
So, you are familiar with them! Yes, they do offer lovely things….too many of them! 🙂
Oh my goodness, where to start! I love the scarf immediately because it’s in my colors and perfect for my fall/winter/spring/summer wardrobe! ha! And the skirt is lovely, especially the way you styled it with the drapey soft top. I love that too.
I’ve been viewing the web-site and immediately added it to my bookmarked sites. Love the drapey fabrics and comfortable looking styles. I’ll be back for some shopping eagerness!
Hi Joni! Thank you!
Glad you liked the scarf! I can see you styling it “Joni’s way!”
I’ve bookmarked the website, too! 🙂
First, off congrats on getting a sponsor. That is fantastic! I am familiar with their catalog and clothes and you’re right, they have the most beautiful, soft-looking things. So luxurious.
I love that the skirt is blue and has a bohemian print along the bottom. And the scarf colors are perfect fall – vibrant and rich (and soft).
Thank you, Laura!
My first impression of their website/products….vacation! Don’t ask me why?
They DO have some really NICE things.
You chose a wonderful long skirt, Jeannie, and accessorized it beautifully. Please enter me in your contest for the fab scarf, and thanks so much for linking up to Visible Mobday!
Thank you, Patti!
I can’t wait to wear the skirt with an oversized sweater.
Thanks for entering!
Hi Jeannie. The skirt is very nice with a beautiful pattern and a vaporous tissue. I love the outfit you have prepared, with bag and shirt, both are wonderful. The bag is great, beautiful. The scarf that you recommend is great, I love the colors of fall. I love the fall.
Thank you Josep!
I LOVE rich colors of fall, too! Can’t wait to see the changing of the leaves….it gets very very pretty around here in the mountains.
I love soft surroundings!!! Beautiful clothes!!!
I know! I’ll be returning for some things for fall!
Wow, their stuff is beautiful and all in that exotic “Marrakech” flavour too. However, I am not a U.S. resident. Good luck with this collaboration, though.
Well, if you have a relative in the US, I’ll be happy to enter you in the drawing!
They do have some really NICE products! 🙂
Ah, thanks but I have only one that I’m never in touch with. If I see you showing anything I’m truly desperate for, though, I will figure out something. That company’s bedding is just gorgeous, BTW. Have been checking it out all day.
Oh, I love their bedding, too!
Beautiful scarf you chose! I love the colors and mix of pattern in both the scarf and skirt. I am also loving the earthy products that Soft Surrounding offers. A great new find for me. Thanks!
stylist & stiletto maven
Thank you! I love their relaxed and soft clothing line as well as the bedding pieces. I’m glad to have found this company, too.
So sad that I can’t enter as I love both the skirt and the scarf! Fall colours figure prominently in my wardrobe.
So sorry, Elaine! Do you have a relative in the US? All they need is a US address! 🙂
