Capsule Wardrobes Fashion Advice

Thank you Chico's for agreeing to be part of this project. While this post is sponsored by Chico's, I had full creative and editorial control.

What I Wore: Gap White Overalls

After a day of running around town, accomplishing tasks and completing errands Karl captured these photos of me in a pretty typical summer day outfit. Overalls: Gap (LP)…
