If you would have asked me as a teen, I would have nonchalantly told you that Indiana and I didn't mesh well and I had plans to move as soon as I graduated. Fast forward to now, and my mindset has completely changed and I'm proud to call the Midwest my home. It's so odd how priorities and goals change as you get older, but I can honestly say I'm proud Midwest born and raised and I wouldn't have it any other way. #midwestlove
Raise your hand if you totally had the same thoughts I did when you were younger? I would bet that nearly 80% of teens had the same thoughts. Now, I value having my family nearby–if you consider three hours away nearby–and love that I can easily drive home for quick weekend trips and family time.
If you're a proud Midwesterner, check out Elysian Co to grab a Midwest Born & Raised tee like this one for yourself...or the whole outfit because I'm totally in love with this whole ensemble. This deep button blush jacket looks amazing with ripped jeans, but would be beautiful with a black bodycon dress or a tank and pencil skirt for the office. As you can tell, I'm all about having clothing that can easily transition from casual to dressy.
