Like a Girl

Happy Tuesday! Can I just say, I hope boot legs are back, because I'm loving every piece in this look!...

As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. While this post is not specifically tailored towards that theme I did incorporate a cuff by Accessory Concierge's new charity collection that I'm currently obsessed with.

Appropriately, the cuff reads "Fight Like a Girl", which I thought paired perfectly with the badass vibe of this rocker inspired look.

Other than the fact that 20% of proceeds go directly to the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund, what I love about this cuff is that it pairs with anything and everything in my closet.... aka. not just pink and not just for October.

If you're looking for clever ways to support Breast Cancer Awareness, I'm currently crafting a detailed list of shopping destinations for you, so stay tuned. That said, what better way to kick us off than a clever play on words to support the brave and badass women fighting this disease!

Made In America

Happy early weekend-ing! If you follow on Instagram, you know that last week I chatted products made in America on WGN-TV (you can check out the segment here). For this particular conversation we kept it to beauty and entertaining essentials to enhance your 4th of July celebrations. However, in researching brands made here at home, I couldn't help but wander over to the fashion aisle...

I'll be honest, my research wasn't easy, in fact little to no surprise, much of the product in my closet is made abroad. However, my denim has some proud american roots!

As to be expected, this premium denim comes at a cost, but after reading up on the maufacturing process, I'm much more apt to make the plunge.

Jerome Dahan is the founder and chief exec. at Citizens of Humanity, and the first to bring the concept of "luxury designer denim" to the marketplace. Dahan is also the original founder of  7 for all Mankind. Dahan believes that it is impossible to manufacture to his specifications anywhere other then right here at home, and it's precicely this dedication that makes his denim the best in the market.

Michael Geller, CEO of Paige Denim agrees, stating "There will be a day in any given week when something [in the production process] doesn't connect just right, and that's when you can get in your car and drive over to the wash house or wherever and make it right. You can't do that if you're making them anywhere else."

Were Dahan or Geller to produce their designs else where they could save 30% to 40% on productin, but trust me, their dedication makes a difference, because Citizens and 7s are undoubtably some of the most comfortable & best fit denim in my closet. If you own any yourself, you know what I mean...

But that's not all, LA. is America's denim hub producing around 80% of America's premium denim. Citizens of Humanity alone, produces over a million pairs of denim a year, "directly employing 375 people and working with an additional 400 to 500 people employed by contractors who do things like add waistband embroidery and belt loops".

Doesn't get better than that, am I right?!...

Coal Miner's Daughter // Feat. Buckley K


Dress c/o | Denim Jacket | Scarf - similar here & here | Aviators

Happy Monday! As you're well aware via. Insta, the hubs and I are currently roadtrip-ing the east coast! It's been a blast so far & I'll be sure to follow up with a recap post once we return, but for now, I have to talk about a very important piece of my suitcase.

As you see, today's look has zero jewelry, and frankly, I wish I would have gone barefoot. When traveling, I want to remain stylish, but the jet setting attire we see celebs sporting, just isn't realistic for my non-jet owning lifestyle (#firstworldproblems).

Lucky for me (and you), here enters Buckley K...

Buckley K is the co-venture of two sisters passionate about travel. This brand is all about adventure, wanderlust, & practicality– the go-to pieces you can wear anytime & anywhere!

In the words of Buckley K, "The modern woman is a juggler...she is busy and on-the-go. Our pieces are designed to hit the road with her...."

You've seen me wearing Buckley K before, but this dress has been my uniform of choice for the long days of travel in our little wagon. Comfortable enough for the ride, and stylish enough for touring local attractions, Buckley K's lux yet laid back pieces have been a staple in this trip's suitcase!

Until next time... xo
