Meet Shea Leigh Mills

Meet Shea Leigh Mills, a fashion and lifestyle influencer originally from Southern Illinois, now living her best life in Nashville, Tennessee.We asked Shea how she would best describe her style and here’s how she described herself: 

I’m all about feeling comfy in my clothes and using accessories to show off my personal vibe. My wardrobe essentials are simple and versatile, but I love adding necklaces, bracelets, and rings to spice things up. You’ll often catch me rocking fun colors, cute dresses, and unique pieces whether I’m out with friends, brunching, or heading to a special event!
