It's time for a giveaway and this is going to be a good one!!!! I met my friend Jessica about a year ago through another friend and at the time neither Amos nor Story was home and she wasn't in the adoption process, but just had lots of questions. Now both my kids are home and her family is right in the middle of adoption! Don't you just love that.
Noonday Collection launched at this year's Together for Adoption Conference in Austin and is quickly becoming the go to spot for meaningful and fashionable accessories. They were recently blogged about by the ArtReach Fair Trade Festival and have been asked to speak at Austin's Pure conference. The Noonday Collection offers fashion forward accessories for you and your home handcrafted by artisans from around the world that receive a living wage for their work. Proceeds go towards placing an orphan in a forever family.
Our newest line is hand knitted by women in Peru from the most luxurious 100% alpaca wool! Many of the women knit from their huts while their children play nearby. This beret can be worn slouchy or pulled over your ears for those really cold days. Ethnic knits are this winter's rage, and we are excited to create a pathway out of poverty for these women while keeping you in style!
Isn't that just the cutest little knit beret! I can't wait for Austin to get a tad bit below 75 degrees so I can wear something cute like this! There are a few ways for you to enter this contest:
- Follow NoondayStyle on twitter

It feels weird that this is the first time i have ever commented, so i feel the need to prefice my entry 🙂
I have followed you guys since around the time Amos came home, thanks to the wonderful Tiffy Wade, and am just so in love with your story. It has led to a lot of great conversations between my hubby and I about adoption actually and allowed me to see how real and feasible it it! Well, that and the fact that I nanny for a sweet one yr old who was a adopted at birth. Now that I’m not just a random person commenting…
Following her! Oh my goodness, love her stuff!
Have you SEEN the “chain link scarf”? So cute, that one may be my favorite
And tweeted… Hope you have a stellar day 🙂

I did step 2! And although I don’t think I am cool enough to wear a beret, it is certainly lovely. And if (in the crazy chance I won), I could give it as a wonderful Christmas gift to someone who would do it proper fashionable honor when they wore it. 🙂
I love reading your blog! Thank you for sharing your life with so many.
