What I’ve been wearing || Dressember

img_0324.jpg

Since I’m taking a social media break (mostly IG…I’ve gotten on FB lately to connect with some family…it is Christmas after all.) but I’ve done a terrible job promoting Dressember. As much as I can, I’m wearing dresses everyday as part of the movement to raise awareness regarding the global problem of human of human trafficking. If you’d like more information, visit the Dressember website or mine and my friend Hannah’s team page. All donations go directly to IJM an excellent organization who rescues and restores victims of trafficking.

I’ll tell you what, a lot of days I’d rather just wear my running clothes/shoes and skip the dress…and there have been a couple times that I didn’t have time to change in the morning after my workout before I took the kids to school…but for the most part, I’ve worn a dress everyday no matter how cold or inconvenient. I’m definitely glad I bought a couple pairs of fleece tights back in October!
