Summer is here! // $100 Anthropologie giveaway

summer giveaway // a thousand threads
Living on the east coast has definitely changed my perspective on a few things: public transportation, the meaning of the words ‘custard’ and ‘barbeque,’ and maybe most of all, Memorial Day.

Sure, it’s a big deal everywhere, but on the east coast Memorial Day weekend isn’t just the beginning of summer — it’s the beginning of pool season. Sometimes it’s been hot for months, but no matter, the pools stay closed. After all, it’s still spring – even if it is 95 degrees. And partly for this reason, because we have such staunch cut-off dates, summer never seems to last long enough… which makes it, and our short pool season, even more special.

So this year, because I’m so excited about so many things, I thought we should celebrate the beginning of summer – and more importantly, pool season – with a little giveaway!

Because now that we’re all allowed to get in the water, naturally we need a new bathing suit to mark the occasion.

Of course you can spend the money on anything you like. Maybe you live somewhere where you feel slightly less like a slave to the seasons… I bet it’s glorious. In that case you can buy yourself a pretty dress or a lovely new pair of sunglasses, or maybe even something for your home. The options here are endless.

So enter now using the Rafflecopter below, there are lots of chances to win! The contest will end next Thursday at 11:59pm and we’ll announce the winner the next day.

Good luck, and happy summer! I’ll see you at the pool.

    If this isn’t the perfect way to kick off pool season, I don’t know what is!
