It's the day before December and I decided while in the midst of holiday fun I would prepare for more holiday parties coming up and thought you would all enjoy a fun giveaway! I love throwing my Boy Meets Girl® Alice Tees on with jeans and a blazer and also pairing them with high waisted skirts and over dresses. You can take a tee from day to night so thought this purse screamed holiday fun and want you all to enjoy this time a year especially this December.
The vintage organic BMG shirts are small and extra small and the new Jessica McClintock purse is a cross body metal mesh one size clutch (Retail Value $150). I will ship all 3 items to the winner I choose.

Photography: Jennifer Lee Photography
My sister introduced me to Jennifer Lee 10+ years ago. Jennifer first took photos of Dj Blue Steel and I at one my of my sister's fabu Halloween Parties and it was love at camera site ( or is the saying love at first sight wink wink). Dylan Reid finally gave us the chance to work together! I am truly grateful we made time to capture these special moments of Dylan Reid at three weeks. He will be two months on December 4th and he has already grown three pounds and three inches in length since these photos were taken. Life moves so fast and if you take a moment to capture the steps along the way it truly is worth it. Thank you Jennifer Lee for capturing my baby boy. Looking forward to working with you again on a special project I will be sharing with you all here in 2015!

I have been struggling on how to write this post only because I have so much to say but want to keep it short and sweet (we will see if that is doable wink wink). The past two months have truly been surreal. My baby boy Dylan Reid was born on October 4th and my other baby Boy Meets Girl® launched on Nordstrom.com this past Monday on November 10th. Dylan was born three weeks early and a few days before he was born I was finalizing all launch items with my team and the Nordstrom team and ok from the hospital too (that is not a joke) and up until late late Sunday (Nov.9th) night (5amer)! Dylan's early arrival took me by surprise but has been the biggest present in my life. As most of you who read my blog know I am 24/7 running my business, blogging about things I love, writing for OliviaPalermo.com , showing you what I wore to an event and taking you BTS with me and my fashionable, smart and witty friends. So when I was recently interviewed by Social Stylate for their Boss Lady series and they asked me this questions...
What does a typical day look like?
So after a lot lot lot lot of work and a full year of keeping things a secret Boy Meets Girl® has launched in Nordstrom! The secrets are now out 2 babies have arrived! If you missed my post on the BTS of the prep of the photoshoot for this collection check it out here. Thank you to all the press this week covering this new collaboration. It is a dream. Thank you to my incredible team who have been so amazing while baby Dylan arrived early. And thank you all to involved along the whole journey both current and past employees! And thank you to my amazing family and friends and my Dj Blue Steel for all of your support (is that a future CFDA speech? Hmm next goal 2015! Think. Say. Do. )
Make sure to check out the new collection and let me know your favorite piece/s and use the following hashtags on social so I can see you rocking the new line #boymeetsgirl #nordstrombp #nordstromsavvy.

A few days ago I was walking in Central Park and captured these #nofilter photos on my Iphone5s. The beauty seen here is truly incredible. I wrote my college essay on the changing of the seasons. I love watching the trees change colors, the leaves fall from the trees, the autumn colors and the reflection of the trees in the water. I am so excited for this particular season. I have a lot in store for you and a big announcement coming here on Monday.
