Will YOU be my Valentine? #Giveaway

I'm typically not one to celebrate this Hallmark holiday however, this year I am making an exception in order to celebrate this VO-lentine's Day with one of my favorite style blogs, Dapper Details & my most recent favorite jewelry line, Vo!

Many of you have asked where I got my incredible bullet casing necklace that I wear almost every single day and I am ecstatic to report that one of YOU will win your very own (as seen below). All Vo jewelry is made by Chicago jewelry designer, Amy Vorel, who is known for her bulletproof gold-filled necklaces and bracelets. Her signature line, Vo, is for the effortless, everyday city girl (or guy!) who aspires to live a life of style and creativity. The Vo line is timeless; pieces that one can wear everyday, yet versatile enough to take an ordinary outfit to the next level. 

To enter to win, make sure to follow adoptedSTYLE, Dapper Details, and Vo Jewelry on Facebook + Instagram to stay alert for the question "What is your dream Valentine's Day date?" Make sure to post your response and I will announce the lucky winner next week. Good luck, everyone and HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
