when shopping it is always great to be able to give back. there are such great companies that help children, people &communities. tom's gives children a pair of shoes for each pair you buy, warby parker gives glasses and kris&kate gives a micro loan to women in third world countries. 

i have teamed up with kris&kate to bring awareness to their cause all while looking stylish. 
with every purchase at kris& lives are being changed. 10% of every purchase invests in these micoloans for women. the loan brings her an opportunity to change her life, the lives of her family and her community. she is able to build a business that will keep her children fed and educated. 

the fashion pieces at kris&kate are versatile and such great staples for every day life. above i am wearing their avery dress. it is one of many that you can dress up or down for spring and summer. i am partial to their dresses but they have other great items and you should go check them out for yourself.

thanks for stopping by and i hope today is a great day!
