Well I still have my cold. And it appears like it wants to settle into my chest which could mean that Hazel will be paying me a visit by Saturday. I guess we’ll see.
I hate when Hazel comes to visit. Especially on an election year. She’ll be cranky and full of opinions about how the world all went wrong somewhere after World War II. But whatever will be will be.
In the meantime, I’m not doing a normal Fashion Friday list of cute things. Part of it is because it’s just that time of year when there isn’t much out there. The other part is because I have two things to tell you about that you won’t want to miss out on.
I’ve been a huge fan of Carol & Company ever since I first discovered them through my friend Paige’s blog and learned that 10% of all Carol & Company proceeds go to organizations that fight human trafficking. Since then I have spent a lot of time looking at all their pretty jewelry and was so excited when they emailed to tell me about the Towne and Reese collection.
Guess who wears it?
Emily the Bachelorette.
And y’all know I trust her taste because she’s trying to bring back the denim shirt tied at the waist that made America great.
The best part is they are offering 15% off any piece of Towne and Reese jewelry between now and next Friday, August 3rd when you use the code EMILY at checkout.
Not only that, but you have a chance to win a $50 gift card when you leave a comment on this post. You can just say hi or you can tell me which piece you think you’d buy because I’m nosy and I’d love to know. I’ll keep comments open until next Friday, August 3rd. One comment only please. Duplicates will be deleted.
I love these deep teal earrings.
Or this Blake Spice Orange Necklace.
Or the Sabrina Gold Bracelet.
But there’s so much cute stuff it would be hard to make a decision.
2. Open Arms
Open Arms is located in Austin, Texas. They employee refugee women survivors who make beautiful skirts and scarves from 100 percent recycled t-shirts.
Open Arms was founded by a group of women wanting to help women. During the month of July, they are promoting their “Made In America Challenge.” The goal is to encourage women all over the United States to buy 1,000 skirts in thirty days in order to provide more jobs to women refugees with a living wage, family-friendly hours, and a variety of enrichment opportunities.
I wanted y’all to know about this because I think it’s a great cause and the skirts are really cute. Very practical for day to day life. I love when fashion is for a cause. It’s the best of both worlds.
I love this classic flourish navy skirt.
But check out all their stuff because the skirts are all darling and the scarves are great too.
That’s it for today.
Y’all have a great Friday.
And don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Carol & Company or to use EMILY for 15% off any Towne and Reese order.
