Blogoversary: Southern Tide Giveaway

Happy Friday y'all. Guess what today is? MPLT's first blogoversary. It's hard to believe that I've been blogging for a full year! After previous attempts at blogging, it feels like I've finally hit my rhythm... so thank you all so much for sticking by me for a full year. I'm so thankful for all of you.

Now - time for the good stuff: Have you heard of Southern Tide yet? I loooove Southern Tide. I love it for myself - but I love it most for my man! Chad has a few Southern Tide shirts (polos, tees and button-downs) - and l.o.v.e.s. them. They hold their color and shape so much better than other polo shirts he owns. And I love the material - it is super soft.

Here's the Southern Tide story:

The idea for Southern Tide was born not on the coast of South Carolina where founder, Allen Stephenson spent his summers, but on a trip to Italy where inspiration was at every turn. From historical architecture and couture clothing to high-performance sports cars, he noticed common threads - exceptional craftsmanship, clean lines, fine quality, and classic design. These elements combined with Allen's heritage became Southern Tide.

Our first product, the Skipjack Polo set a new standard in comfort and fit. We engineered the yarn, fabric, fit, and finish to create a modern version of this classic shirt. Since then, Southern Tide has evolved into an entire collection built on the same high standards as the Skipjack Polo. From our original woven sport shirts, to Channel Marker Khakis with navigational colored button thread, we are meticulous when it comes to detail and quality.

Our way may not be the most conventional, and may take a little longer, but we want our clothing to make you look and feel your best. Superior fit, classic design and comfort are key elements of our effortless style.

So for today's giveaway - I'm giving away one size large men's Southern Tide Skipjack polo (valued at $69.50) in the Tidewater color.

This shirt would be a great gift for the man in your life. And remember, Father's Day is right around the corner! It would make a fabulous gift!

    My favorite part of the beach is the sound and smell of the ocean.

  9. Yay! One year of MPLT already? Congrats!

    My favorite thing to do at the beach is sit/stand where the ocean waves barely break and dig your toes in the wet sand! Oh, and you know I promoted this via Twitter :)

  10. Leaning back in a rocking chair, putting my feet up on a rail, forgetting about work, and drinking a cold beer.

  11. My favorite thing about the beach is the smell of the salt water and the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach.

  12. My favorite thing about the beach is "people watching"!!!! I am a crowded beach fan and love to sit back in a chair, tan and "people watch" ha ha ha!
