Also, I'm so excited to be featured on GBO Fashion today!  I found this adorable blog about 3 months ago and instantly fell in love with it.  I immediately started leaving comments and even emailing the creator, Shannon telling her how much I envied her fabulous style.  I have met {via email status of course :)} a lot of stylish girls in the blogging world and made a lot of sweet friends since starting my blog, but I have to tell you--Shannon is definitely one of the sweetest.  She always responded to my comments and emails and that's what you want from the blogger, right? Interaction?  So, today, I am extremely honored to be featured on this amazing blog as one of her weekly 'Style Crushes'. :) Check it out here!

Have a lovely Friday!

Dress: c/o Cotton Blossom Boutique, Sunnies: Ray Ban, Nails: Voltage Pink by China Glaze, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Bauble Bar, Earrings: Nadri.
