Chambray Dress

Over the past year, I've started to embrace more of who I am in fashion, and just as a whole.  That whole getting older thing hasn't been so bad.  This outfit makes me feel most like myself.  I love the chambray dress, because it's casual, comfortable, but looks put together.  Bourbon and Boweties bangles are hands down my favorite fashion bracelets. This leather tote I ordered from Magnolia Market really is fashion + function.  The booties add a fun touch, and the dark nails and Ray-Bans my fashion staples.

Let me pause and tell you about this necklace.  This necklace is from Threads by The Shine Project.  I learned about The Shine Project when I was in Atlanta, and y'all, I won't even lie to you.  I ended up crying in the booth.  Ashley founded the Shine Project to provide scholarships to at-risk youth who would be the first in their families to go to college.  Her project has expanded since then, and despite my vagueness in recent months, is something I am incredibly passionate about these days.  Read more about The Shine Project here.
