I have an extraordinary amount of state pride, and each day I feel my Texas pride starting to swell more and more. That may be directly related to the fact that my name is a state, but nonetheless, I love Indiana and I now love Texas. When Maya Brenner asked if she could send me a Texas state necklace, I hesitated for a nanosecond. What would Indiana think? Would this dramatically shift my Hoosier state pride to Texas? They made sure I didn't have to agonize long over which state to wear by offering to send me both an Indiana necklace and a Texas necklace, which you may have been admiring from my previous outfit post:
I love them! They're really dainty but super sturdy, and they instantly cause friendly folks to strike up a conversation with you. "Is that an Indiana necklace? My grandma lives in Indiana!" "Cool Texas necklace. Did you grow up in Texas?"
I'm so excited that Maya Brenner has offered one very lucky Adored Austin reader the chance to have her own sterling silver state necklace. Celebrities are huge fans of these neckalces, and now you, too, can wear one and attempt to rival me for the title "Most State Pride, Ever". I'd like to get a state necklace for each of the states I've called home.
