Winter Fringe

Winter Repeats

For Christmas and the week after I had off I wore varying versions of this oversized cardigan/black tunic/sweater/faux leather leggings look. I was such a bum, but the leggings and fur details made it appear as if I made an effort. This particular look took me to two dental appointments (fake tooth, here I come!) and buying donuts for my grandparents and niece. Read More Β»

Schoola

When Schoola, an online consignment shop that donates 40 percent of proceeds to schools’ art and music programs, reached out to me and asked for me to help promote their cause, it was a resounding yes. While I’m not artist or musician, these are the kinds of programs that provided me the kind of therapy that worked for an incredibly shy little girl experiencing childhood trauma that talking and counseling couldn’t help. I needed a paint brush and caring teachers who let me explore different kinds of art, channeling emotions and energy into something positive. I loved to draw, color, paint and read–and those classes and programs made me feel normal.
These programs are quickly disappearing and low-income communities need them for their children to thrive, but they are the first to get cut. So I’ve packed a big bag of clothes to ship with the bag and shipping label they sent and hope to raise more money to benefit these programs.
So join the movement and help raise awareness for how enrichment programs are disappearing from schools due to underfunding. Share your favorite school memory on social media for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Schoola during the month of March. Use the hashtag #WhyISchoola on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!

A Cozy NYE

DSC_2625
Sam and I partnered with Kohl’s to share how we might style a sweater dress for New Year’s, as we’re both a bit more laidback and think there’s more options for NYE beyond glitter and sequins. I’m all about the comfort, with leather mixed in. What are your NYE plans? Mine are dinner and curling up on the couch to rent some movies!
