Carol Ann Reach for the Fringe (Minnetonka Giveaway)

My head is spinning with hilarious possibilities on how to word this post.  For some reason when we took the pictures I kept seeing myself flying off on a broom like Harry Potter (don't ask me why - I think it's the hat).  Then I spotted a neighbor's house with a castle type peaked roof and tried to get the pictures to turn out like I was sitting on the roof.  No dice. Shucks.

I guess I'll just have to settle for what it is - me trying to rescue my near dead plants while the Chef snaps away.  Hmmpf.  Not nearly as exciting.  Read on though...because there IS an exciting giveaway for a fabulous pair of Minnetonka Moccasins (boots or shoes of your choice) at the end of this post - courtesy of the wonderful people at Langston's Western Wear(And lemme tell ya - they have some pretty fantastic cowboy boots too if you're in the market.  I grew up on a farm and am a total expert on the matter...I own 3 pairs).

But first let us examine appropriate plant saving attire for mid-January.  Look for me wandering the streets in spring adorned in the same outfit - and all of its various pieces mixed in with other faves in upcoming posts.  As you know I'm a fool for anything with fringe and these boots are no exception...and we haven't even gotten to the top or the hat!

Hat Attack-Hat, Free People-Webs We Weave Top, Martin+Osa-Skinnies, 
Check out the swirly fringe on that boot 
(and the dead leaves fallen from my Plumeria tree...this is a red alert)
 Front view...how about those little studs?!
Side view - I don't know how it is that I haven't invested
in more Minnetonka's.  The foot beds in their 
shoes are incredibly cushy and comfortable, 
and I love the overall boho vibe.  Kate Moss knows!
I call this one the watering can shuffle - the Chef finds it
rather amusing to catch me in these poses.  Not so much.

GIVEAWAY DETAILS
*This giveaway is for one pair of Minnetonka boots or shoes of your choice (men's or women's) from the selection offered on Langston's Western Wear.  The giveaway is open to all U.S. and Canadian readers (Overseas readers I'm sorry - they don't ship to you, but I will have another giveaway to include you soon).  The entry period will run through 11:59pm PST Wednesday, January 26, 2011 and the winner (selected via random drawing) will be announced on Thursday, January 27, 2011.

Ashley said...

Nice! Minnetonka moccasins are some of the comfiest shoes I own. I took a 7 mile walk in them once and my feet didn't even get sore.

Being caught in weird poses is usually quite horrifying for the poser, but funny for everyone else! I'm glad you posted it. I like the looks of your patio/deck/roof/roof deck, or whatever it is, too!
