My identity.

I got this necklace the summer after 5th grade as my mom and I drove from Jackson to our new home in Southaven. (I remember it as my first trip to Target!) It was surely "Clueless" inspired. (And yes, I still have and wear it.) In the summer of 2016, I got this necklace at the cutest shop in town . I think the term "wifey" is so cute, and I love being a wife, so it seemed fitting and light-hearted!

I had to add the keychain because it totally takes me back to the Koosh balls of my childhood! Another optional piece of flair was THE cutest enamel pin. I have a tiny but growing collection of those, but for the sake of our budget, I'm limited to one piece of flair a month. (Except maybe for my birthday or Christmas!) Today was a fun day, so it seemed like the perfect day to grab a Starbucks, put on my GLOW shirt, and take #shawfollowellthornton for a strol
