Hi friends! It’s been awhile since I have posted…been a busy bee lately! So much to get ready before back-to-school (major scaries!), but also so much time with friends lately (awesome!). I’m glad I am back today though to share some new stuff and a little Instagram round-up!
Last week was World Elephant Day, a day created to raise awareness about protecting elephants from harm in Africa. J. Crew now has an amazing campaign going to raise money for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Fund. Learn more about it here. And buy this cute shirt for the cause. I did! On World Elephant Day, people were encouraged to #gogrey for the elephants, and since my elephant tee had not yet arrived, I opted for other J. Crew items for my #ootd to show my support for what they are doing. See the look below! And shop the sweater here! My necklace is from the J. Crew factory store – you can get SUCH great deals on J. Crew jewelry (which is always so stunning) at a factory store near you! Scalloped shorts are on major sale now at Loft! Complete the look with some Ray Ban sunnies and the tiniest half-up-top-knot you’ve ever seen. Have fun going grey as we transition into fall!
I paired this look with my favorite children’s novel The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate because of the two elephant characters, Stella and Ruby, who just tug at your heartstrings so much throughout. This Newbery winner is great for raising awareness about the treatment, safety, and appropriateness (is that a word?) of animals in captivity. Read it – you’ll love it.
Wait! There’s more! This girly eyelet shift dress from Banana Republic and another J. Crew factory store necklace are the perfect pairing with a girly Jenny Han novel. I love the hint-of-lime with navy combo – the lime color just pops so much! The dress is no longer available because I bought it so long ago, but you can shop similar looks that I also love here and here! Anything eyelet is good in my book!
I am currently halfway through P.S. I Still Love You and anticipate finishing it soon. I LOVED its prequel, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, so I just have such high hopes for this one as well. Gotta love that Lara Jean! Stay tuned for reviews of both!
Currently Reading: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han (sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before)
