It's the start of a new week, and I'm a bit more excited than usual — we're taking off for our trip to Maine this week! Ever since we booked the trip I've been daydreaming about whale watching, riding Vespas, and eating enough lobster to require an elastic waistband. You know it's serious business when you pack a bag of cornstarch in your luggage—to remove butter stains. I wish I was kidding.
Since I can't pack you all in my suitcase, I'm bringing the Maine love to you today, with an awesome giveaway from Alaina Marie. Alaina is based in Portland, Maine, and hand crafts these bright and adorable clutches inspired by lobster bait bags.
The marine-grade materials make the bag splash-proof for those days on the boat or at the beach, and she hand-silkscreens the patterns on the bags. I absolutely adore their subtle nautical charm, and the workmanship is beautiful. They make the perfect companion for the summer, and you better believe I'll be taking mine along on our trip!
The giveaway begins now, and runs until Thursday, 8/8 at 11:59 pm. To enter, you can do one or many of the following - each item counts for one entry. Leave a comment below with what entries you've completed. Two winners will be randomly drawn to receive one clutch each (pictured, one pink/green and one teal/coral, valued at $58). Winners will be announced here on Friday 8/9 at 9:00 am. Choice between colors is first come, first serve when the prizes are claimed.
