HEYYYYYYYYY NATALIE JEAN!

It's a book it's a book! Heyyyyy, I wrote a book! I've held it in my giddy, shaky hands! And guess what, you can buy it!!!! Oh my goodness I want you to buy it. 

It officially comes out on March 17th, but it's available for preorder now, and we want to get as many preorders as we possibly can!! So to celebrate + to drum up some fun, I figured I'd give away a signed copy, plus my very favorite outfit, "The Uniform," the whole thing head to toe, to one lucky reader. It's the entire Hey Natalie Jean package! A book, plus clogs and a sweater . . . and jewelry . . . I mean, hold your mouth right + maybe there'll be a bag of Twix for yo freezer, too.

Here's what our winner is going to get:


1 / a sweater of your choice from my favorite sweater girl in all of the planet
2 / a pair of Madewell jeans, theeee very best source for wear-every-day denim
3 / a pair of the sexiest damn boots from Brooklyn's most sexiest clog clogger
5 / this dude watch--it'll look killer on your slender lady wrist
6 / the tote bag of the century
7 / a signed copy of my book, 'cause, right

Probably a bag of mini marshmallows, too. What can I say? There it is.

To enter, leave a comment below! That's it!

[POST EDIT NOTE FROM ME: we had originally set preordering the book as requirement for entry. I had been assured it was kosher and the usual technique for preorder campaigns by the "powers that be," but I just got a call that it turns out it wasn't kosher, as I had sort of suspected. I am so sorry!!! My publishers are contacting everyone who preordered to rectify the situation, and those entries are officially here + counted, so don't worry about re-entering. I feel really terrible about this, and I'm so sorry for the mess!]

(I'm also giving away something special on Instagram today if you want to get over + get in on that!)

While we're here, I figured I'd share a few of my the photos from a shoot we did in the summer (Emma took them for the Gap Dress Normal campaign and then we used one or two for the book), featuring yet another version of The Uniform. :)

This is a very exciting week for me, a very exciting year for me! And I'm so grateful for all of you and for your support over the 10 (ten!!!!) years I've been blogging. Thank you so much. Thank you for sharing in the excitement with me! And thank you for being such pals. I might be the luckiest. xo










On me: Gap sweater + jeans / watch / boots
On Huck: Gap chambray, tee + jeans / shoes / tatts

  4. Ah this is awesome!! I babysat Huck a couple times, and he is the most magical kid. You're one lucky mama!

  5. Ah man, I so want to enter! I've already gone to pre-order your book about three times before remembering that I'm moving and don't know where I'll be living on 17th March. But if I could I'd enter for the watch alone - so good!

    Also, congrats on your book! I will totally pre-order a copy once I've resolved this tiny housing issue...

  10. Preordered and entered! I am dying for the tote of the century to give to my mom who watches You've Got Mail at least once a month even though it will be hard to hand over. And I am dying for the watch, so I feel important when people ask what time it is. Sorta kidding... anyway AWESOME giveaway!

    Good luck to me, cause I want all the things.

    XO! luh you.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I entered! Just a fyi, though. When I pressed the submit button, the confirmation that came up on the next page (of your contest, not on Amazon, where I ordered) was "Thanks for Ordering Materially Crafted!" Just making sure my entry made it to the right place. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. thanks for letting me know! i contacted the publisher and they'll double check for you.

      Delete
    2. Same things happened to me. I thought 'Materially Crafted' was a funny way to say "you are confirmed!"

      Delete
  26. I sure hope this means tour!! Because um, you (and Huck) have some blog fangirls here in St. Louis : )

    ReplyDelete
  27. Why would we have to preorder your book in order to enter to win a copy of your book? I don't need two of them! We should be able to enter without making a purchase.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if you already preordered you're all set! you can use the confirmation code from your earlier purchase to enter. :)

      Delete
    2. oh! now i see what you're saying! haha, geez, good point! maybe give one as a gift? or else maybe the one you buy is the one that gets signed? i'll have to circle back with my publishers on that one.

      Delete
  28. Congratulations! And also, you and Huck are the cutest :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Please tell me you are doing a book tour. I'd stand in line for that! If I couldn't stand in line for that, I'd task rabbit that ish because I'm not above standing in line for your book deets. Nerd alert, I'm excited about this thing.

    ReplyDelete

    1. you must have entered right on the cuff, i'm so so sorry for the confusion! there's no longer a preorder entry requirement, we had a giant error of bad information, i feel terrible! Abrams will be contacting you soon to rectify, but in the meantime, thank you so much for preordering!! it really means the world, i'm sorry for the goof up and hope you don't regret preordering!

      Delete
  37. Natalie, a thought, what if we bought one of the Indiegogo perks that included a copy of the book, which would be delivered a lot later than March- May I think? Would that count?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i know! i'm so sorry for the confusion. there's no longer a preorder entry requirement, a comment alone gets you in. so, you're entered! this is totally on me, i should have trusted my gut, i'm so sorry! also, thank you!!! thank you so much for the indiegogo preorder!!!!
