It has been several weeks since my last “Fashion Inspiration” post and it feels really good to be back!!! If you are new to my blog – ”Fashion Inspiration” is a weekly post with drawings of inspiring bloggers and you can be featured too. The muse of today’s post is super sweet and beautiful Shanna @ “Because Shanna Said So“. Shanna is very passionate, charming and one of the most friendly girls I’ve ever “met” online. Reading her blog makes me feel that I know this girl for ages. Make sure to head over to her lovely blog.
