Five Loves…

I love this whole look for a Sunday afternoon.  And the shoes – those can be worked in anytime of the week.

Oh look at that box of treats.  It has been far too long since I have had a macaroon – think I need to do something about that this weekend.

I love these shoes so much.  I think it is such a fun way to add a pop of color to a look.

Another fabulous shirt from Sevenly.  I seriously love this company and everything it is doing to make a difference.

Fall is right around the corner.  I cannot wait for big cozy sweater scarves.

What are you loving this first week of September?

Much love,

Real Men…

I am loving how much people are getting behind supporting the end of the sex trade.  It needs to end.  I think this issue has been on my mind even more as of late because I will be in thailand in a month and a half and I know I am going to see it – breaks my heart.  There has to be hope for these little girls.  Thankfully there are groups like Destiny Rescue  to just name one, that we can support to help bring an end to this tragic epidemic.

So true.  I am always for the product that gives back over the designer bag – but maybe that’s just me.  Though, I am learning it is not only me and that is a refreshing and hopeful thought for our world.

Seriously, every time I see this skirt I want it that much more.  Damn.  So cute.

How can you go wrong with red?  Especially when everything else is kept natural?!  Oh yea, you can’t because it is simply stunning.

Playing with patterns.  I love it so much.  So inspiring.  And, look at those teal heels – in love.

A refreshing cocktail for a Friday afternoon.  Nothing I love more at the end of a long week.

Are you a happy hour goer?  What is your favorite beverage for summertime on the patios?

Much love,

Bleeding Heart…

Last night I was reminded that there is still some hope in our world.  There is still beauty.  People really do care and are doing something to change the ugliness of this world.  Maybe you already know about Sevenly, but I just learned about it last night by stumbling upon what I first thought was a cute cat shirt.  Then, I learned that if I bought it this week, $7 would go towards helping free girls and boys from sex trafficking in Thailand.  Next week, there will be a different mission the $7 from each purchase will go to.  It is amazing.  In January of 2011, two young Entrepreneurs Dale Partridge and Aaron Chavez got together with the mission of leading a generation toward generosity.  Six months later this vision turned into a reality and has been making a difference these past two years.  Sevenly successfully unlocked not only a way to crowd-fund for causes, but to drive massive social awareness as well.  Through these two men we are seeing a generation moving toward generosity & a world beginning to realize that people matter…now, that melts my bleeding heart.  Plus, the products are fabulous.

Do you find yourself drawn to brands that allow you to give back and make a difference?  What causes are you most passionate about supporting?
