Today, I’m so excited to introduce you to Amy Havins, the creator and author behind Dallas Wardrobe.  I was thrilled when Amy graciously agreed to be featured for this series because I’m a huge fan of Amy’s blog and her personal style.  Amy has impeccable taste…she kind of reminds me of a southern Kate Middleton, wouldn’t you agree?  She’s perpetually polished yet always keeps her look simple and refined.  This is what makes Amy’s approach to dressing seem easy, effortless , relatable and attainable.  Be sure to follow Amy on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Bloglovin.  Now, let’s get to know Amy a little better…
