You guys... this dress is so much fun! I never would've tried it on in the store, but now it's one of my favorite things in my closet. It came to me by way of a recent Stitch Fix partnership on Pinterest. The style lesson here: challenge yourself to try things on you wouldn't normally try! I have to remind myself of this often, because it really is true. Those "just outside the box" purchases usually wind up being my favorite.

Also - I'm excited to share that JJ won an award for his photography! A few months ago he was asked to submit a photo for the Melrose Center Awards (Orlando's main library). He entered this image of a longhorn in Lake Nona and won his category (photography) as well as the grand prize!! I'm so proud!! He made me promise to share my own recent award if I posted about his, so I'm also happy to share that I won the "Best Everyday Style" category in the first annual ShopStyle Awards. Words can't describe how thankful we are to be a part of creative pursuits we enjoy, and to have your love and support! xoxo
