Leopard, Agate, and an Announcement!

{Jacket: Thrifted Amazing Jacket} {Dress: b. lovely/@shopblovely} {Sunnies: Aldo}
{Watch: NY&Co. Similar} {Booties: Body Central Perfection}
{Necklace: c/o Earth Inspired Chic}

I don't know if I have shared this with you all--but my hubby owns his own small business. It is a LOT of hard work--blood, sweat, and tears. It takes hours away from his family and at one point he had to work a second job to build it up. But, he does it because of his drive and passion to succeed. I have so much respect for him and am so thankful for what he does for us :)

That all being said--I am so excited to announce a new series!! I have a heart and a love for small businesses, so I want to showcase them on the blog. Monthly, in a series call Dream Chasers, I will be introducing you to a new small boutique or etsy shop etc.

Today I am so excited to start the series of with Earth Inspired Chic. Cristal has a beautiful collection of very bohemian jewelry! All her items are hand made and therefore every piece is unique and one of a kind :) I mean this Agate Stone Necklace is STUNNING--and yes that is stunning--in all caps!

Make sure you get over there and check her out shop and use the promo code Tori15 to get 15% off. Help support those people chasing their dreams :)

P.S. If you have a small business and are interested in being featured--please visit my Contact Page and shoot me an e-mail :)
Happy Monday
