Hello beautiful people! There is nothing I love more than knowing that my purchases are making a difference to others in the United States and across the globe. Today’s post is going to feature products that you can purchase to give back to some of your favorite charities and initiatives. It turns out you can be fashionable and philanthropic all at the same time. 😉

Alex and Ani: Charity by Design

I love Alex and Ani as it is. But when I came across some of their charity by design bracelets, I grew to love this company even more. The bracelet that caught my eye when I was in a Paper Store was a beautiful daisy charm.  20% of my purchase is going to Peace Corps’ Let Girls Learn initiative. This wonderful initiative strives to ensure that all young women receive an education to not only better their lives but also provide them with the tools to better their communities as well. Alex and Ani have charity bracelets for organizations such as VH1’s Save the Music, The American Cancer Society, UNICEF and many more. Your purchase can truly make a different to any of your favorite charities.

Toms

Toms shoes are fashionable and every purchase made helps others in need. A basic necessity that we all have the privilege of having is different pairs of shoes for work, school or to wear casually. Sadly, there are many children and adults overseas who not have even a single pair of shoes to use. Every item that is sold at Toms goes to 1 of their 5 initiates to make the world a better place.

Amazon

I shop on Amazon a lot and I know I am not alone. Thankfully, Amazon has made it easy for you to give back with any of your purchases. Before you start browsing for purchases, Amazon will send to you AmazonSmile. Here, you can choose the charity were you will to support. Amazon will then give a small portion of your item’s purchase price to the charity of your choice.

Hope you are inspired to do some shopping with purpose!

Hi love! Nothing is more romantic than lace detailing. Spring fashion calls for lace pieces in my opinion. The top that I have featured in my images is sold out so I found some of my favorite lace tops that vary from difference price ranges and vary in style. Keep in mind that pieces with lace are delicate. So be sure to hand wash your new favorite top to persevere its’ beauty!

Hi loves! I hope you had an awesome weekend and a lovely Easter! I got the chance to enjoy a pool party with my second family. Nothing like summer weather in April right? The warm sunny day put me in the mood to bring out one of my favorite maxi dresses. This blue one is by Felicity and Coco. It’s super light and if hides your mid-section if that is an area of your body you are not a fan of. I have linked some accessories to pair with the dress along with some whimsical pool accessories.

Dress: Kate Spade // Shoes: JLO by Jennifer Lopez // Purse: LC Lauren Conrad // Earrings: Swarovski 

Hi ladies! I hope you all had a wonderful Monday. If there is one brand I cannot get enough of, it is Kate Spade. The company offers the most whimsical pieces and timeless looks. The dress that I have featured is Kate Spade’s flamingo blaire dress. I love the flamingo print! The shoes that I have paired for this look are by Jennifer Lopez at Kohls. My ring purse is by LC Lauren Conrad (which is also sold at Kohls). Finally, my hoops are made by Swarovski. I have also added some of my current favorite whimsical Kate Spade pieces below. What are some items that you love by Kate Spade? Feel free to leave me a comment below.

Happy Wednesday loves! You may notice that your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages are filled with fellow bloggers showing off their off the shoulder pieces. The trend is not going away soon and for good reason! Off the shoulder tops offer versatility that you can use on a night out or for work. The floral off the shoulder top featured in these post is by Loft. The pattern in itself is pretty but my favorite part is the gold foil accents not the shirt. My jeans are also by Loft. Petite ladies always want to keep a pair of skinny jeans handy as they give the illusion that you legs are longer. Add your favorite pair of rose gold flats and you are ready for a great day!
