When you think of a PERFECT PAIRING, what do you think about?
Here are some of the dynamic duos I think about:
Peanut Butter and Jelly Chocolate.
Wine and Cheese.
Bacon and Eggs.
Cranberry Juice and Vodka. ;)
Apple Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream.
Zack and Kelly.
Just so you know, I totally laughed out loud when I typed that last one.

You know what else I think about?

You pair a cardigan with a scarf, and in my book, you have the PERFECT outfit pairing.
Well, after you add some pants.

And it's not just me that thinks so, Pinterest thinks so too.
no source / red scarf pic sources says HERE, but I can't find picture / no source
sneakers and yellow bag HERE / no source

So, today I'm going to be showing you some different scarves all with the same basic outfit.
And all 3 scarves featured today are from Accessory Concierge.
Click HERE for all of the scarves in the collage below!
I'm featuring scarf a, scarf b, and scarf d,  although I'm now obsessed with scarf c too.
And let's be honest, I wouldn't be mad at you if somebody gave me scarf e or scarf f either.

Now, I must warn you, if you aren't a scarf person, the above scarves might be a
 little too much for you to handle.
They're all the new BIG scarves (a couple of them are actually blanket scarves - D, E, and F are all blanket scarves).
But if you're brave enough, you will make SUCH A STATEMENT in your big ol' scarf.
What's the statement you'll make?
I think it'll probably be something like
 "Look how freaking darling I am in this big scarf."

Now, I want you to know that I totally get that blanket scarves can be intimidating, but I hope to make you less scared of them after seeing them on me in this post, and after seeing the easy 4 step Blanket Scarf tutorial I have for you on Monday!  Yep, you're going to have to stay tuned for that.

Within seconds of opening up all of my scarves (thank you Accessory Concierge!), I started playing around and styling them!
So I contacted the sweet girls over at Accessory Concierge, told them that I was going to be featuring 3 of their scarves today, and asked for another PTMT code.
And they agreed!!!!
You have to spend $50, but if you do, you'll get 20% OFF your entire order!
Code = PTMTholiday20

And if you're shopping don't forget and trying to get to the $50, keep the following in mind:
 I also love THIS cushion cut bracelet (that I wear pretty much ever single day), and THIS necklace (the Stella and Dot knock-off that I featured in my Splurge vs. Steal post HERE), and THIS necklace (love the drusy!) and THESE earrings (love the pretty green color!).  Oh, and I don't have THIS one, but I want it.  

Okay, back to the scarves.
I wanted to start with a totally basic outfit.
So I started with this pin I found.
After I got past the fact that I wanted this girl's hair, I pulled items from my closet to recreate the outfit.

This is how I did it.
It was such a simple outfit, but I still thought it was super cute.
My outfit details:
THIS is the cardigan (from LOFT), I'm wearing an x-small.
The sleeves are very fitted, so keep that in mind when deciding on your size.
This waterfall cardigan is the perfect fit and shape to pair with scarves.  It's HANDS DOWN my favorite cardigan in my closet right now.  

THIS is the white scoop neck tee (from LOFT).  If you prefer a v-neck, click HERE.
Click HERE for a tee option from Nordstrom that isn't super fitted, but isn't slouchy either!  :)
THESE are super similar jeans (by the same maker- same fit, just darker, and not distressed).
THESE are the boots.
THESE are the earrings (ONLY $8!).
THIS is a similar watch.
THIS is the bracelet (c/o Accessory Concierge, and 20% OFF today with the code!).
And then I took the basic outfit above, and I started throwing all of my new scarves on with it!
This next collage illustrates how a scarf (ANY scarf) kicks a basic outfit up a knotch...or twenty!  :)
And look how different all of the outfits look in the collage below, even though the ONLY THING DIFFERENT in each picture is the scarf!

Scarf HERE (regularly $30 / NOW $24 with code PTMTholiday20)
(Remember:  On Monday, I have a tutorial on how to tie the scarf this way.  Styling blanket scarves looks hard, but it's not at all! It's SUPER easy.  Once you read it you will be all "duh"!)
If you already are a scarf person, adding a blanket scarf like this to your closet is a total no-brainer.
It's warm, cozy, DARLING, and fun!

Scarf HERE (regularly $38/ NOW $30.40 with code PTMTholiday20)
In the past, I've never been a fan of Burberry knock off prints, but now I am.
This scarf was so soft and very easy to style.
(I think it's going to be super cute with my leggings and denim shirt also!)
Scarf HERE (regularly $30 / NOW $24 with code PTMTholiday20)
This was the last scarf I photographed, and I wised up and realized I should show you different ways to wear it.
This scarf is very versatile, and I am a big fan of the contrasting patterns on front and back!
From Left to Right:
just looped once / looped twice / loop and twist tie (will do a tutorial on this later too) / just draped
Look at all of the possibilities with this 1 scarf!

So, do you have a favorite scarf?  
Is it #1?  #2? or #3?
I think #3 might be my favorite...but that might only be because I feel like it kept me from certain death at Carter's t-ball game last Saturday morning when it was STUPID cold.
(I wore it with my black tweed puffer and my UGG cardy lattice boots to the game!)
Photo: I call this look t-ball chic. I will say this, I had on the best looking scarf at the fields. #ilovescarf  :)

*$8 stud earrings:
*Old Navy black tweed puffer vest:
*similar jeans: 
*Old Navy hoodie:

Old Navy (hoodie and puffer are both from Old Navy) is having a major sale, so check it out!   Shop Old Navy:

Yes, I've got a soft spot for scarf  #3 since it kept me alive, but I also love #1 A LOT. It's the first blanket scarf I've ever owned, and I will admit that I'm more than a little bit cuckoo over it.
I ran into Shay at Nordstrom earlier this week, and I was wearing basically what I was wearing in Scarf Outfit #1, but I had on my favorite UGGs instead of the over-the-knee boots and I had on THIS "Beautiful" tee instead of the plain white tee (and it's ONLY $12.50 right now)!
Yep, THIS waterfall cardigan is perfect for layering with a scarf!  Just look how it drapes and hangs!

After going our separate ways, I made my way to the junior's department where I found THIS dolman sleeve cardigan.
It's short sleeve and very billowy, but also flattering!
Cardigan + Scarf = OUTFIT GOLD
Click HERE for the cardi (that comes in lots of colors)!
And it's ONLY $38!
(similar leopard belt HERE / UGGs  HERE / blanket scarf HERE)
This entire outfit is totally laid back, uber comfy, but still pretty dang cute ifidosaysomyself! you probably didn't really need a whole lot of convincing on this whole cardigan and scarf idea, and I'm certainly not the first one to pair a cardigan with a scarf....but I hope you agree that that a cardigan and a scarf together make a totally effortless, yet realllly cute fall outfit!

And you probably have several cardis and scarves in your closets already to pull this look off, but I have some options for you right now just in case you want to freshen things up!

First up, some other scarves.
These are more "beginner" scarves, if you will.  They are smaller and not intimidating at all!  :)
If you're already a scarf person, I really encourage you to go for the Accessory Concierge scarves
that I highlighted above!  GO BIG OR GO HOME LADIES!

But if you are new to the scarf world, 
one of the options below would be a great start!
The top row is infinity scarves.
a) ringer infinity scarf HERE (one of Shay's favorites!) / b) plaid and herringbone scarf HERE
c) chunky rainbow knit HERE / d) navy buffalo plaid scarf HERE / e) leopard ombre HERE
f) red check knit scarf HERE / g) plaid scarf HERE (on sale)
 h) black and white houndstooth HERE /  i) floral scarf HERE / j) sole society plaid scarf HERE

Nordstrom actually has a HUGE selection of scarves under $25 that you can find HERE.
Old Navy has a pretty good selection too HERE.

Now some cardigan options!
The first 4 are from Nordstrom:
a) ruche sleeved cardigan HERE (10 colors and over 250 5 STAR reviews!)
b) doman sleeve cardi  HERE / c)  asymmetrical cardi HERE / d) splendid jersey cardi HERE

These next 5 are from LOFT, and all sweaters at LOFT are $25 off today!  (Click HERE to shop all sweaters and cardigans!)
I'm a huge fan of LOFT cardigans.  (I won't even tell you how many I have in my closet...because you probably wouldn't even believe me.  Nope, you can't make me tell.)
a. waterfall cardi HERE (this is the one I was wearing with all of the Accessory Concierge scarves above) LOVE THIS CARDIGAN!/ b. grey and white striped cardi HERE
 c. relaxed cardigan in orange HERE (13 colors total - the one pictured has "red" in the name, but I have it, and it's definitely more "orange")
 d. leopard print relaxed cardigan HERE / e. boucle open front cardigan HERE
And check out what is happening at LOFT right now.....

So that's it for CARDIGANS and SCARVES today!
Don't forget that the code PTMTholiday20 will get you 20% OFF your entire order (of $50 or more)  at Accessory Concierge through the end of the weekend for all the scarves and jewelry you want!
Remember, come back on Monday for

Before you go, I have two more things:
On Thursday morning's facebook post, a couple of girls started a conversation about Frye boots.  These girls didn't have them, but they were considering getting them, and they were questioning if I thought they were really worth the money.
Well, I TOTALLY do.  I've only been wearing them for a couple of weeks now (once it finally got cold in my neck of the woods), and I of course love the way they look, but I'm also
 amazed at their comfort!

However, I decided to continue the conversation to see what others thought, so I asked people on Thursday night to comment on facebook if they had Frye boots...
and if they thought they were worth it!
Click HERE for the facebook post if you would like to read the answers from everybody else!
I would say 98% of the commenters (there were 60 comments when I last checked) answered with a resounding "HECK YES!"
Click HERE for the Cognac colored Melissa's that are 15% OFF!
And I didn't realize it last night, but the black ones found HERE are 25% OFF!

A Reader E-mail, NEW JEANS, Random Sale Items, and some new Santa Alerts!

Well, you can't say my post title isn't informative.
Here's the deal, I tried to come up with a funny title, but I had nothin'.
So, I went with informative.

So, let's start with the reader e-mail!

My name is Emily E. I’m a long-time reader and a big fan of your blog! After I read your Anthropologie post (I’m in my last year of law school so I’m a always a little behind on my blog reading!) I had to email you about the Capriccio lace tunic. I just love it! I have it in cream and gray (the gray is really more of a periwinkle blue in person but it’s so pretty—a really unique color). I got a medium in each and they’re the perfect length to wear with leggings, but I know I could easily wear them with jeans too.
 I’ve dressed them up with a statement necklace but they’re also good to wear casually!
And I also had to share…my cream tunic has really special memories because it’s what I was wearing when I got engaged last month! I saw the reader who commented wanting advice on engagement photo outfits, and it looks pretty good on camera I think—I may be biased though! ;)
(photo credit to Jessica Hatter Photography— I am so lucky my fiancĂ© thought to have someone there to capture the moment!)
And what an incredibly sweet picture!
Thank you so much for the e-mail and taking the time to send me the picture Emily (and for giving me permission to post it)!
Your picture above inspired me and I recreated your outfit for myself.
Even though I tried on the x-small in this tunic in the store (and it fit - see HERE for a pic of me in the x-small tunic with jeans), I went ahead and ordered the medium to have it hopefully work with leggings, and it did!
I really loved it with the leggings!
MUST HAVE leggings HERE (STILL ON SALE!)/ Kimberly necklace HERE , knock off version of necklace HERE/ hoop earrings c/o Gorjana and found HERE 
Click HERE for this Capriccio lace tunic that is GORGEOUS!
It comes in 3 colors (including grey and black), but I adored it in ivory.
The reviews on this top are fantastic.
Here's just one:
This top is even more stunning in person, online you can't really see the intricate details, its so feminine and delicate, but also really sturdy and great quality. I got the cream and I am considering getting the grey (which looks more like a grey/blue) in person, but still beautiful! So happy with this purchase!

When I ordered from Anthro a couple of weeks ago, I also threw this next shirt in my bag, even though I had never tried it on.  
I fell in love with the colors and the pattern, and I just had to try it.
It's the total idea of the MUST HAVE shirt, but with all sorts of bells and whistles!  :)
I wear an x-small in the MUST HAVE shirt, but I'm wearing a medium in the Anthro shirt.
It is quite low cut, so I'm wearing a black cami with it (click HERE for an awesome black cami).
Click HERE for the Persian Pear Tee.
Here I am wearing it with my dark skinny jeans (similar HERE from Treasure and bond), my Frye boots (mine sold out, but other Frye's HERE on sale!), 
and my Rayne necklace  in teal c/o Kendra Scott (HERE).
FYI, the Frye boots I'm wearing in the above pic are sold out, but the SUPER POPULAR Frye Melissa Button boot (my mom and my sister both have this boot) is ON SALE!
Click HERE!

And here I am wearing the same top with my light distressed jeans (similar HERE) and my
over-the-knee boots c/o Sole Society HERE!
I absolutely love the border on the bottom of the blouse and the pattern and colors are terrific!
Before we move on, I want you to consider one of the above tops for your Thanksgiving day outfit!
Both are cute and comfy AND FLATTERING!  And I like how they both bring something special to the table.You know you need to look extra cute when you are seeing family that you haven't seen in awhile!!!

Now it's time to talk about NEW JEANS!
Let's all just take a moment to check out the Vigoss jeans that were just added to the Nordstrom website!  THESE look awesome!
The Vigoss I'm wearing in the above pic are actually distressed  even though you can't tell in the picture (distressing is by one of the front pockets and right on the knee), so these new ones are a SUPER close match!
If you have and love some of the Vigoss MUST HAVE jeans already, then you are probably already throwing THESE BABIES into your cart without a second thought because you already know that the sought after sizes (typically 26-30) sell out pretty fast!
Click HERE!
(Regarding sizing, I haven't tried these exact ones on, so I'm not sure.  I'm a 27 in almost all of my Vigoss jeans, except for 1 pair where I'm a 28.)
 I checked this morning, and 26-30 is already sold out! 
If you are a facebook follower who scooped them up last night when I posed them, go ahead and give yourself a high five!
(If you don't follow me on facebook, you should HERE so you don't miss out!  I often give my facebook followers a sneak peek!)
Let's all cross our fingers they get re-stocked fast!  I will of course send out an alert if they do!
It's 3:15, and it's looks like they have been re-stocked!!!!  HURRY!!!!

Okay, it's time for the "RANDOM SALE ITEMS" portion of our post today! 


It seems to me that Nordstrom is just going to continue rotating sale items right now...
probably until Christmas.  Lucky us!
So, I will continue to try to find the best current items!
Click HERE to shop women's coats on sale under $200.
Click HERE to shop bags and accessories on sale (priced anywhere from $50-$300).

In the collage below, I made an entire outfit from items that are ALL ON SALE! MK sweater HERE (55% OFF) / true religions jeans HERE (50% OFF) 
Kate Spade bag HERE (50% OFF) / MK tortoise shell watch HERE (40% OFF)
coat HERE (33% OFF)
earrings HERE (not on sale, but ONLY $8)/ scarf HERE (20% OFF) / booties HERE (33% OFF)

These Tory Burch Caroline ballet flats are also ON SALE and available HERE (3 colors)!
I don't have any TB flats yet.  If you have them and think they are TOTALLY worth it, please leave a blog comment telling me that you love them and why!

This isn't a Santa Alert, because I think many of you ladies might like this next item for yourself BEFORE Christmas.  I posted these sequin studs on facebook over the weekend, and the multi-color sequin sold out almost immediately. Well, they are back in stock online!
The multi-color are on backorder, but I'm thinking it might be a possibility that they sell out again soon, so if you want them, you might just have to suffer through the backorder.  (I tried to see them at the mall yesterday, but the multi-color are sold out at the store too.)
On the site, I like the gold better than the silver....but in person, I liked the silver better.
Maybe it was the lights in the store, but the gold read a little green to me.
The silver were STUNNING.
The gold were still VERY pretty, just not as gold as I was expecting!
Click HERE for the sequin studs! for a couple of Santa Alerts!
Click HERE for these DARLING slippers that are ONLY $18!!!!!
EIGHTEEN DOLLARS and sooooo cute!!!!!!
A very well priced gift for any girl on your list!!!!
These would actually be a fun gift to give on Christmas Eve!
Click HERE for a selection of women's pajamas that are on sale!!!  

My 2nd Santa Alert of the day is from last year, but it got such a good response, I thought it was worth showing again!   
Check out this red velvet lip scrub HERE.
Click HERE for the entire line of Sara Happ lip scrub products in a lot of other yummy flavors (think Creme Brulee or Grapefruit!).
Have you guys heard of this stuff?
I hadn't heard of it, but I ran across it online and was first attracted to it because of
 the precious packaging.
I thought it would be SO CUTE as a Christmas present or stocking stuffer.
And then I started reading the reviews online, and I was sold.
And then I went and got some to try for myself, and OH MY WORD.  It is delightful.
I immediately called Shay (because she is a product expert) to see if she had heard of it.
And guess what. She uses it every day, LOVES it,  and says this 1 little jar lasts about a year.

Here's one online review:
5 out of 5

I highly recommend this to everyone! At first I thought it was a little silly. ..who exfoliates lips, but after using it, i'm hooked. I work in hot dry weather and am constantly battling dry lips, even with lip gloss and chapstick they don't ever get silky smooth, after this though, they are amazing!
 If you're lips are like mine, they are begging for a treatment like this!
And the cute packaging makes it great to give as a gift!

And since we're talking about SANTA ALERTS, I thought you might want to see the new stockings I ordered for my family earlier this week!  I'm so excited about them!
I am DYING over the Golden Retriever stocking!!!!
Golden Retriever stocking HERE / painted Santa stocking HERE
red plaid with green cuff HERE / brown plaid with red cuff HERE

And if you want to see my other 2014 Santa Alerts, click HERE!!!  I think the post might help you hammer out several people on your list!

I'm VERY excited about Friday's post.
Think cardigans, scarves, and blanket scarves!

My Obsession Continues. #ilovenavypufferwithtoggles

If you've been reading the blog for over a couple of months, there is something you have probably learned about me.
When I fall in love with something, I fall HARD.
Like the blardigan (yes, you can wear it out of the house, pay no attention to the model wearing it with lingerie).  But for the record, if I looked like that, I would wear it with lingerie.  Possibly out of the house.
My MUST HAVE shirt.
I could go on and on.
When I find something I like, I wear it constantly.

What can I say, I love deeply.
And I like to share that love with the world.
And some sort of character quirk I have makes me feel like you guys need to love the same things too.
Well, I have two new favorite things.
You know they are favorites because even though I've only owned them a short time, they've appeared in many outfit and ig posts over the last several weeks.

What are these new items?
Can you guess?
the  Ugg lattice Cardi boots
(I seriously wore them Tuesday - Sunday last week.  Yep, I did.  And I'm not ashamed.)
 and the navy puffer with Toggles.

So today you are going to get to see yet another outfit with my new navy puffer.  WITH TOGGLES.
Because I don't know if you've heard.
But it has toggles.

I saw this picture on Pinterest, and I knew I could copy it (with my own spin).
I also knew I wanted to know this girl.
  Who are her friends?  What is her name? Where is she?
Where did she find that belt?  What about her bracelets?
And most importantly...What is she listening to on those headphones?
I want to know it all.
no source :(
So here's how I did it!
I flipped the mustard to the pants and the red to the shirt, and I loved the look!
Sources follow:
similar-ish mustard pants HERE (I can't find any true mustard pants anywhere!)
 exact wedge booties HERE/  exact navy puffer HERE / leopard belt HERE
earrings c/o Gorjana at Nordstrom HERE / exact Sanibel necklace HERE (it's reversible!)
similar MK watch HERE / cushion cut bracelet c/o HERE / drusy ring c/o HERE
red lace tee options below
Once again, I have Pinterest to thank for this outfit.
I never would have put these 3 colors together in one outfit if she didn't show me it was okay. :)
I wanted you to see the vest zipped up with the toggles fastened AND with the hood on.
And remember, the hood is completely removable too.
It easily zips on and off.
For size reference, I am wearing a medium in the vest.

navy puffer HERE / lace striped thermal tee HERE / 
leopard belt HERE / ochre cords HERE
similar MK watch HERE / cushion cut bracelet c/o HERE / drusy ring c/o HERE
plain  taupe TOMS HERE

My red lace striped tee is from LOFT several years ago, but I found several similar tees.  These tees are great for all fall and winter, but especially great during the holiday season!
a) lace trim thermal top HERE, b) lace striped thermal tee HERE, c) plus size lace trim top HERE

And you ladies know I'm also obsessed with my plain taupe TOMS booties.
I got them last year and wear them all fall and winter long because they go with everything.
Even if you don't like my booties, 
I highly suggest getting a neutral bootie!
Here are some great options that are all under $100, and "b" is on sale for under $50!
a)  cheetah TOMS HERE / b)  posie wedge bootie HERE
c)  TOMS zipper bootie HERE / d)  herringbone TOMS HERE

And if for some reason you don't enjoy toggles (I'll pray for you), then check out THIS navy puffer from Old Navy.

Oh, and if you've heard nothing else I've said today.
Please listen now.
If you don't yet own a leopard belt, shame on you.
Get THIS one.  Get it right now.
I posted it on Facebook on Saturday afternoon, and asked people to comment if they owned a leopard belt.  All the leopard belt love did my heart good. :)
Click HERE.
And just for grins, and to prove that I truly am are my 2 other navy puffer with toggles creations over the last several weeks

Click HERE for my favorite leopard flats.
I love the back of it too, and this outfit shows you how it looks with the hood unzipped!

So, enough toggle love (don't kid yourself, just for now),  we have a couple of more things to talk about before we go!

Thanks to Kristen H. (a sweet reader who e-mailed me recently), check out this Splurge vs. Steal!
You all know my friend Erika bought the splurge booties during the anniversary sale in July, and I  drool over them every single time I see her in them.  They are just so unique and COOL.  Well, they were included in the clearance sale last week (marked down they were $155.96), so I highlighted them then!
But thanks to Kristen, I have an alternative to offer you.
Kristen said the Nordstrom person that helped her explained that the leather was much nicer on the splurge, but that otherwise they pretty much looked like the same boot.
And they do.
In fact, when making the collage, I was having the hardest time keeping them straight.

splurge booties HERE.(still 40% OFF) / steal booties HERE

And before you go, I have 2 Santa Alerts for you today also!

I had these next items as an alert last year, and they were so popular, I thought they were definitely worth mentioning again.
Nordstrom started carrying THESE Moon and Lola personalized and
monogrammed bracelets and necklaces last year.
They are mainly carried online, but if you are in the area,
they do have them exclusively at the Northpark store (at least I know they did last year).
Because that's how Northpark rolls.  All sorts of exclusive.  ;)

 Most girls LOVE a monogram, but think about this...
if you know somebody that JUST got married or is ABOUT to get married, how much would she LOVE something with her new monogram?!?
Yes.  If you're wanting squeals of delight, this could be the gift.

Click HERE for the collection. 
The sweet girl that helped me at Northpark said her manager recommends that these pieces are ordered soon to ensure Christmas delivery because since they take a good 3 weeks before they will arrive on your doorstep. 
  I like both the script and the block version , but I do think the block version is easier to read.
 My favorite piece is definitely THIS block necklace.
My favorite colors are the antique gold, blond tortoise, tiger's eye, and hot pink.

This next Santa Alert makes for SUCH A GREAT GIFT!
I have a gadget gift guide scheduled at the beginning of November, but these sold out fast last year, so I didn't want to wait!
They are gloves that you can wear AND STILL USE A TOUCH SCREEN AT THE SAME TIME!
There is a special type of technology built into the fingertips that allow you to operate a touchscreen with the gloves on.
Tell me who in your life doesn't need these.
Great gift for hubands and wives...but also for moms and dads...and daughters and sons!
This gift spans the ages.
men's gloves can be found HERE / women's gloves can be found HERE
kid's tech gloves can be found HERE

And if you want to see my other 2014 Santa Alerts, click HERE!!!

Go out there and OWN Monday girls!

There's a charity I recently learned about that's helping women in need in the Dallas area.  I thought some of you ladies might want to know about it too!
I think it's a really cool idea!

It's called The Gift of Joy Project, and Kayle Kimbrough, one of it's founders, 
has this to say about it:  
Our mission is to provide the gift of joy to women in local shelters, transitional housing, and maternity homes at Christmas time in the form of a shoebox filled with small luxury items. Through this small gift, we hope to bring a smile to the face of a woman facing a difficult situation, and remind her that she is not forgotten by her community.

You could think of these gifts as a subscription box for a women in need, packed by another women in her community. They're filled with items such as makeup, small accessories, chocolates, planners, gift cards. You can also add fun things such as a sweet note, a card, tissue paper, or confetti inside to jazz it up. The boxes will be going to women at 15 North Texas shelters, including Genesis Women's Shelter, GRACE Grapevine, and Dallas Life Foundation.
You can check out our website HERE to learn more and find out where you can drop off a box. We're on Instagram HERE and you can use hashtag #shoeboxjoy to share a photo of the box you pack.
