Attention all Texas girls! I have found the perfect top to show off your Texas pride all summer long! Katydid has a new collection out full of bright colors and fun patterns like this Aztec print Texas tank top in mint. The soft material allows you to dress it up with a cute pair of skinny jeans and heels for a night out or throw it on over a swimsuit and cutoffs for a day at the lake. Don’t you just love versatile pieces?
A hot trend I have been loving this season is layering dainty necklaces. This gold-plated Texas cutout necklace was the perfect addition to my collection where again, I can show some Texas pride! (If you’re not from Texas, they have several other states to choose from!)
I was thrilled to team up with Katydid to share their affordable fashion but also to share the story behind the Dallas-based brand. Katy Messersmith (the “Katy” in “Katydid”) fell into the fashion world by accident in 2002 when she was volunteering at a women’s prenatal clinic in Africa and her luggage was lost. She soon began collaborating with local seamstresses that inspired her to eventually create designs of her own. Katy’s business and fashion sense is self-taught but that did not stop her from creating a multimillion dollar business sold in more than 10,000 boutiques across the nation today. And did I mention the entire apparel line is made in the USA? Part of Katydid’s mission is to empower women and make a difference in the community. Local charities like Kidd’s Kids, Susan G. Komen, and Dress for Success are just a few of the charities Katydid Collection supports.
