Hi, friends! I can’t thank you enough for the overwhelming amount of support for yesterday’s announcement! I tend to be a little hesitant when it comes to partnering up with brands (unless I unequivocally love them and would recommend them even without a sponsorship).

Hi, friends! Today I’m excited to share Look 13 of the Spring 10×10 Challenge. Now in full disclosure, I did not wear this outfit today. During finals week, all bets are off! Haha!

It’s a simple outfit formula (skirt + tee) with a little extra styling for a pop of…
