Hailie Girl Giveaway...and a bonus for locals

This Giveaway has closed

My daughter, Lydia, LOVES princesses. We dance as I sing "I know you" from Sleeping Beauty. We read dozens of princess stories everyday. When I swing her she always requests that we practice the "Princess ABC's" (Anyone have a princesses world that starts with X?) Our Netflix queue is almost entirely princess oriented. For the most part I love it. It is adorable to see a 2 year old having her own private conversation with her "Fairy Godmother" as she pretends to cry in the corner. However, I draw the line at Lydia's desire to constantly be a walking billboard for Disney. I don't mind her wearing an occasional princess tee, but everyday is a little excessive.

Our compromise is that I let her dress like a princess. Thus I am always on the lookout for girly but practical clothes.


That might explain why I freaked out slightly at the Hailie Girl Line designed by Cara. These are the cutest little princess skirts I have ever seen! They are totally durable, with an elastic waist that makes potty training and self dressing easy, and at the same time totally frilly and 2 year old approved.

Cara has finally set up an Etsy shop and for the first time these skirts (and other lovelies) are available to you. Cara has offered one skirt just like the one Lydia is wearing in the photo to one lucky winner. The size is from 12 months to 2T but if your little princess is thin like mine, the skirt will fit a 3T. Contest Rules:

1. Go to Hailie Girl and check out Cara's products. In a comment on this post tell me your favorite item between now and Tuesday, October 14th,

2. For a extra entry, let me know in a separate comment that you are a subscriber or follower (see right hand sidebar) of Natalie's Sentiments.

3. For a third entry, let me know in a separate comment that you have blogged about my Fall Giveaway Soiree and that you have the icon on your side bar.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, October 15th by random generator. Good luck!

AND A BONUS GIVEAWAY!!!!

Loving this photo of Lydia? It was taken by Tony McDaniel of Tony McDaniel Photography. He has offered one lucky winner from the Chattanooga Area a free sitting and a $200 credit! If you are in the Chattanooga area and want to enter, send an email to me letting me know where Tony was before he moved his business to this area. Send the email to nataliessentiments@gmail.com with the subject of Chattanooga Photo shoot. I will email the winner a week from today!

Open to US addresses only.

Natalie,
I love the blue one. Kinsley is not even 2 yet and she always wants to be in a dress. I think I might have a future wannabe princess. She would look beautiful in one of those skirts. I never win anything. So please pick me.

Oh, DD would love the pink one. Everything is pink. Then we'd need pink shoes. Because they'd need to match. When do they learn this? It must be genetic;) Thanks. these are great.

My 3 yr. old daughter is big into princess too! She has a purple tutu that came with wings and she pretends to be a flying princess ( not sure where she has seen a flying princess but its her imagination!)
It would be so cute to get her one that she wouldn't have to wear clothes under ( not so appropriate to wear the see through tulle one out to the grocery store!). I LOVE the pink one like what your duaghter has.. waht a brilliant beautiful idea Hailie Girl came up with. I just love it!
