Fall Colors & Giveaway

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!

  1. 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!

  3. Hi Jeannie,
    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………

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

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.

  8. 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 :))

  9. I stopped by the site and immediately clicked on ‘shoes’. I really like the “Arapahoe” boots.
    Your skirt is a nice transition piece.

  10. 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!

  11. 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!!

  12. 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!

    • Hi Becky!
      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.

  13. Lovely outfit. Not only does soft surroundings have wonderful clothes, I noted some great linens. Thanks for the opportunity to win that lovely scarf

  14. 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!

  15. 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 : )

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. Hi Jeannie,
    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).

  20. 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.
