Cents of Style Fashion Friday - My Accessory

Hi everyone, Staci here!  I am excited (again) to be a part of another one of Cents of Styles Fashion Friday!  This time I'm wearing one of their absolutely beautiful (and comfortable) Swing Dresses!  This dress is perfect for the Fall weather and did I mention comfortable? Fashion Friday Story--Long Sleeve Swing Dress for $21.95 + FREE SHIPPING w/o code DRESS2016. Along with this dress, I am wearing one of Cents of Style's necklaces to accessorize.  The necklace simply says "Be the Good".  This necklace isn't only super cute but I feel like with all the things going on in the world, it's a good reminder for us all.  There is a lot of negativity and terrible things we hear about everyday - but even with those things, we can all do our best to be kind to others, help others, and be the good in the world.  No matter where we go, who we are with, or what we are doing we can be kind and help others - even if it's just giving someone a smile while we are walking by them, you never know who needs it.

 I like to keep things pretty simple so I figured a little necklace with a whole of meaning was the perfect accessory for me.  And of course my ankle boots - a Fall favorite!  How would accessorize this dress or your own swing dress?  Let us know in the comments below!  Don't forget to check out  Cents of Style's Swing Dresses (in all your favorite colors) and their cute accessories!
