In 2011, I joined a few friends to start Dress a Day in May. It was just a reason/excuse to wear a dress. I had no idea that 10 years later, I’d still be wearing a dress each day in May, with serval hundred other women – What a journey! I’ve built so many incredible relationships along the way. Also, I’ve been able to bring attention to Clothesline Waco & Mission Waco.
Thank you Kevin Tankersly & the WACOAN magazine for including me, and the Dr Pepper Museum for letting us grab a drink. I’m not sure what this May will bring but I still plan on wearing a dress all 31 days. Click to read more about Dress a Day in May: www.wacoan.com/waco-chat/autumn-outlaw/
