I love getting post ideas from readers {if you have any email me} I received an email last week
for a post idea, I thought was such a great idea but it was one that I didn't really know the first
thing about or have ever experienced so I decided to call on the advice of my sister Emily

Sweater-Jcrew, Dress- Gap Maternity

boots, black opaque tights, and a pea coat.


Thanks so much for posting today Em!!
