Win $100 to H.C.B. Boutique! [now closed]

Peplum top $34 / blue jeans $36 / purse $48 / necklace $26 / shoes $30
Peplum top $34 / black jeans $42 / necklace $22 / shoes $30

I'm so excited to introduce H.C.B. Boutique to you guys today! Short for Hilary Caroline Boutique, the owner (that's Hilary) opened her online store in summer 2012. Everything I'm wearing I borrowed from Hilary for a little try-on session, and will be sending back (except for the ankle boots... might have to hold onto those!) You guys are in for a real treat though - one lucky reader will win a $100 gift card to H.C.B. Boutique, and everyone gets 20% off before 12/22 with code "HappyHolidays." To enter the giveaway:

1. Stay in touch with H.C.B. Boutique by "liking" their Facebook page.
2. Leave a comment on today's post.

A winner will be selected on 12/26. U.S. residents only. Good luck!

Above: I would be more than happy to add peplum tops like these in every color to my closet! They are so festive for the holidays, and are super-comfy with their soft, stretchy material. Consider sizing up; the small (pictured) fit snug. 

Peplum top $30 / blue jeans $36 / necklace $22 / purse $42 / shoes $30
Striped top $34 / black jeans $42 / necklace $26 / purse $48 / shoes $30
Lace top $28 / blue jeans $36 / shoes $30

I'm equally obsessed with the sleeveless version of this peplum top, and H.B.C. stocks tons of other cute tops like this striped silky top and crochet lace top. I'm also a huge fan of both pairs of denim I tried - both the blue and black skinnies fit like a dream (and ran true to size).

Multicolor sweater $42 / blue jeans $36 / boots $54
Aztec sweater $40 / black jeans $42 / boots $54
The outfit on the right might be my favorite of the whole bunch, I love the sweater! I also really dig the pattern on the left sweater, although I'm convinced I look silly in crop-tops. ;-) Sweater on the left also fits snug in the arms/elbows, so consider sizing up. 

High low dress $44 / necklace $22 / purse $42 / boots $54
Pattern dress $34 / necklace $26 / purse $48 / shoes $30
Maxi dress $42 / necklace $22 / shoes $30

You will find dresses galore at H.C.B. Boutique - my favorite is the high-low dress on the left, I love the boho vibe and can see myself wearing it for both dinner and errands. The middle print looks great with cognac and turquoise and would also work with boots and leggings (I would size up because of length). The far right dress is a super-comfy option that works with sandals on the beach, or heels for the holidays.

Which outfit or clothing item is your favorite?

This post is brought to you by H.C.B. Boutique. As always all opinions, reviews and editorial decisions are my own. 

Congrats to our winner!
