Recently TopButtons had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with two of our biggest supporters: Abby and Makailey. These lovely high school students remind us why we do what we do and they are living examples of what it means to reveal less and express more.
Enjoy some of our favorite shots accompanied by some details of their trendy outfits.
Meet Abby! Her bright colors and cute pose represent her fun personality! Abby's ombre dress blends from pink to orange, which is perfect for Spring. She purchased her dress at Target.
Abby chose to accessorize her outfit with layered necklaces and a cute bow ring, but this dress can be paired with all kinds of jewelry to express one's unique style.
Abby's metallic sandals are from TJMaxx, which is a great store because it offers high quality name-brand clothing at a fraction of the price!
Abby's Favorite Bible Verse: I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. [Psalm 116:1-2]

Meet Makailey! She chose to create a color contrast with a sea-green blouse from Bealls and a pink bauble necklace that she scored at Goodwill.
Makailey's white pants are perfect for Florida's warm weather. She was able to get these at Old Navy, which provides several affordable options.
Makailey's Favorite Bible Verse: By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life. [Psalm 42:8]
Not only do Abby and Makailey have a good sense of style, but they also have good hearts. Because they have such a unique and dynamic friendship with each other, they're able to remind each other of their value in Christ.

Spring Fashions are trending non-stop, but let us not forget the color trends that are bringing fashion to life: Cobalt & Monaco Blue, Poppy Red, Marigold & Lemon Yellow, Khaki, and Emerald, to name a few.
While selecting a popular color for an outfit may not be at the top of your list, pairing the RIGHT colors is must for a successful outfit. Below are a few accessories that compliment our color pop choices.
Torn between gold or silver accessories? Pick a necklace that showcases both. As for this look, the gold brings attention to the pop of yellow while the silver offsets the outfit. If you are wanting to keep it simple, a necklace as bold as this is all you will need. And if you are on the adventurous side, play up your look with bangles and cluster rings.
These cobalt blue wedges not only compliment yellow, they also pop against the grey.
