STYLE STORY: CHAMBRAY & LACE + STYLE TO INSPIRE LINK UP

Happy Monday! This week I'm cohosting the Style to Inspire link up with Rhea Et Cetera! I hope you join us! This is your chance to share your latest looks with your fellow style bloggers. Here's the story behind my latest look:

I'm so thankful for having friends who are willing to donate their talents & energy to encourage the utilization of my creative energy. One of those friends is Nic of N3Lau Photography who offered to shoot a few looks for me while he was in town shooting a wedding. He's an amazing photographer and so wonderful to work with. He has done weddings, engagements, portraits, etc. so head on over to his site if you are looking for a photographer for various occasions!

It was really fun exploring my Chicago neighborhood to shoot this look. We found some hidden gems and my favorites were in alleyways. Who knew alleys had so much character? Here are just a few of my favorite shots of this look. I plan to share more looks that Nic shot in the near future!

Have a lovely week! Keep loving and showing grace to those around you! As Bob Goff (writer of "Love Does") says, "Don't save up love like you're trying to retire on it; give it away like you're made of it." We were made to love.
