As we say goodbye to one hell of a year, how about a looksie back? In no particular order, here are some of 2012’s bests :)
Best Etsy Find:

These inexpensive clutches are just plain good. Why haven’t I bought one yet?

Best Splurge:
Easily one of my favorite details in our new house. 
Best Instagram:
Family Scene
This picture just gets me every time. It’s my screen saver on my phone.
Best Fashion Trend:
Bold Prints
I’ve loved prints in 2012, and frankly, no one did it better than MSGM.
Best Recipe:
Pho Sho. 
Best Celeb Moment:
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds’ Wedding
I mean, duh. They got married at the same place as Josh and me (Boone Hall), just miles from our house.
Best Read Blog Post:
Fletcher’s nursery post was Look Linger Love’s most viewed blog post in 2012. 
Best New Blog Read:

I’ve loved following along on Samantha’s style and blog this past year. That girl is about to blow up really big.
Best Blogging Triumph:
I’ve had a lot of cool blog successes this year- my second Glitter Guide feature, curating a Look Linger Love collection on Joss & Main, features in Skirt! Magazine, Charleston City Paper, and Dabble Magazine, a feature on Home Depot, and the latest Anthropologie craft night, to name a few (just a few, y’all, ha!). But I think the most exciting honor was getting contacted by Kate Spade and InStyle Magazine to co-host KSNY’s store opening here in Charleston.

So all in all, I’d say 2012 rocked my socks off. I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings. 
Happy NYE, Everyone! Stay safe with your bubbly and sparkles!

Gee wow that was my longest blogging break yet coming in at 6 whole days. I needed it, apparently. I thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas holiday with my family. So much so that my pants are real tight and I don’t want to wear them. I mean, even my underwear feels tight. Also, my house looks like it exploded. Toys everywhere. I don’t even know where to begin.

But now, how to break this blogging silence? Shouldn’t it be something very profound? Like a major announcement or something? How about… I’m pregnant! I’m not. We’re moving! Again, not. But what I do have for you…

Exhibit A of why I think indulging isn’t so bad.

Crystal Renn looks good. Just sayin’. Don’t feel guilty, enjoy your weekends!

So I impulsively ordered these cute shoes because, well, they were cute and inexpensive.

Sometimes you win some, sometimes you don’t. These smell as cheap as they were. Seriously, I can’t even keep them in my house the chemical smell is so bad. I’ve had them on our front porch for nearly a week and it’s not much better. Bummer.
On the bright side did I tell you that Josh bid on two wreaths for me at the Festival of Wreaths and won 2?? Here’s my super duper happy face.
Super duper happy. Wreath on the left is by Allison Abney and Elizabeth Norton. Wreath on the right is Lulie Wallace. You can see more pictures from the event here.
Are y’all done Christmas shopping? I’m not, at all. And I still have all the wrapping to do. I do this every year. I just like to take my time and enjoy the season. I hope you are too :) Life is precious and wonderful.

I tell you what, Social Dress Shop has gone and taken the web by freaking storm. They definitely caught my eye with their gorgeous line of dresses. So when the owner, Sarah Baucom, reached out to me about a partnership, I was fairly quick to nod in agreeance. And guess what, she wants to give one of you $150 toward a new dress.

The real dilemma is choosing the dress.
Oh you know, just 12 or so of my favorites. I need to pick a dress too, which one which one?!! So hard to choose. But I think Twiggy might be my favorite.

Alright, here’s how you enter to win the $150 Social Dress Shop gift card.

Tell us which dress you would pick!

Easy and fun, yes? Want an extra entry??
Like Social Dress Shop on facebook and leave another comment here telling us so.
Alright, y’all are all over this, I know it. This giveaway will end this Sunday night. Good luck!
