Eyelet and Stripes

Eyelet & Stripes on The Sol Compass J.Crew outfit on The Sol Compass IMG_0901

It’s incredibly likely that I will never get tired of American themed outfits i.e. anything involving a combination red, white, blue, and stripes-or better yet, all three.  Patriots’ Day (better known as Marathon Monday) is somewhat of a sacred day here in Massachusetts and the perfect excuse to break out the Americana.  I stalked this skirt from J.Crew for months until it was low enough on sale to snag it up.  That meant I wound up with a beautiful eyelet midi skirt in the dead of winter, patiently hanging in my closet waiting for warmer days when we could rock all kinds of color combinations together. Stay tuned for more.  (I also found a few similar options, including one for $25 that you can shop below!)

Gifts That Give Back- World AIDS Day

Today, December 1, is World AIDS Day.  (RED) is a remarkable organization that has been striving to deliver an AIDS free generation since 2006.  With the holiday season now upon us, it is a great opportunity to choose to gift through an organization that also donates to the Global Fund in the hunt to end HIV/AIDS.


one // two // three // four // five // six

Perhaps my favorite item from this selection is the FEED (RED) 30 bag.  From Founder Lauren Bush Lauren, FEED- also founded in 2006- donates a portion of each bag to the United Nations World Food Programme.  So this particular bag can donate 30 days of life saving AIDS prevention pills AND also 30 meals through the United Nations Food Programme.

Every product purchased from Apple retail stores worldwide and online today, will help support (RED) to fight AIDS.  So if you were planning on making an Apple purchase for the holidays, today is the day to do it!
