There is so much more to this red dress than just a bright bold color, a figure flattering silhouette, and a beautiful ruffle detail. This dress has meaning…the reason I wear this red dress HAS meaning and it is all about Addison!
For those of you who have been regular visitors to KBStyled, you will most likely recall “Addison’s heart story” that I have shared for the last 2 years.
You see, Addison was born with a heart defect…her heart was a little less than perfect although she seemed absolutely PERFECT in our eyes. From the day she was born, there was always a dark cloud that followed us around knowing that one day, Addison’s tiny heart would have to be fixed. What this meant is that our sweet baby girl had to undergo open heart surgery to mend her broken heart.
Surgery day came and went with much success and she is a thriving, spirited, funny, adventurous, loving, and smart 6 year old! Read more about our “Addison’s heart story” HERE!
Having gone through this experience with our sweet little girl we have become more aware about how we can give back in a way that benefits & supports others who may have a similar condition or who may have overcome heart related health issues.
For the last several years I have been involved with our local American Heart Association chapter. Being able to share Addison’s story and use my voice through KBStyled has been such a blessing.
Giving back to the American Heart Association is important to me and my family. This year marks my 3rd year hosting an event with Kendra Scott to benefit the American Heart Association.
On 2/13/18, I will be hosting an “give back” event with Nashville’s local Kendra Scott where a percentage of the proceeds will be donated back to the American Heart Association. My hope in doing this is that I will bring more awareness both locally and nationally.
I’ve included the details for our event below! You don’t have to be local to get involved. If you wish to contribute to this cause, you are welcome to contact our local Kendra Scott store and purchase the “Addison earrings” (see pic below) or any other item so the proceeds will go to the Nashville American Heart Association.

“Addison” earrings or any other item
Every bit of involvement makes a difference! Last year I heard from so many of you with personal heart health related stories and I imagine there are many stories to share.
If you live locally, I’d love for you to come out the evening of the event to meet, enjoy an evening out, and support a great cause! I hope to see you there!
On behalf of Addison and our family, thank you for letting me share a bit about her story with you! I appreciate you taking the time to read today’s post and if you ever wish to share your own personal story, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
