Have you noticed my new accessory in today’s post (and no, not my new Céline bag either)?! OKAY so maybe my favorite best friend, I mean iPhone, isn’t new. But, her pretty flamingo case courtesy of Kidogo Kidogo is!! How CUTE {not in a Lilly Pulitzer kind of way} is this case for summer? Not only is it keeping my phone’s style fresh, but it is a “case that cares.” For every two cases sold on the Kidogo Kidogo website, a woman in Tanzania will receive a cell phone, a sim card and credit to be able to start using her new phone. Take a moment and consider your life without your cell phone, not without Snapchat and Instagram, but without the ability to communicate with other people-unfathomable, right? Now, imagine trying to run a business like that. Kidogo Kidogo has provided phones that assist women with their businesses and maintain their livelihood. Many of these women are elderly or have many mouths to feed at home. This company was started by Kim and Kristen Waeber, two young sisters, who after traveling all throughout the world recognized this great need and felt called to do something about it. Guess what? We don’t have to start a huge company to do our part (however, if my post moves you enough to do so, by all means). Face it, you’re going to buy another cell phone case in the next few months anyways, why not help another woman in need while you’re at it?! There are several more designs (all created by a Tanzanian artist) available, with one sure to fit your taste! Share this with your friends and let’s spread the word about Kidogo Kidogo!! Keep reading for more on my outfit!

DSC_0616Okay, so after a full holiday weekend in VEGAS, I desperately needed some comfy casual outfit days. BUT, I also had some meetings and errands to run so I couldn’t make it a “work out clothes” day. This outfit is the perfect in between! I have been DYING to wear this new Equiptment top (that I got half off at II Brunettes). It is absolutely gorgeous, but also effortless. It could easily be dressed up with a pair of white skinnies, pumps and some flashy jewelry. Obviously, I chose to dress it down with a little half tuck action and these distressed boyfriend shorts. They are so so comfortable and look great on any shape or size! These shoes are one of my favorites in my closet. They are super comfy, but also give you a little wedge, which is great when wearing shorts (especially if you’re self conscious about your legs like I am). I then carried my new everyday bag and princess of the house>>my birthday Céline luggage bag!!! I’m only mildly obsessed!! OH and there’s a look alike linked below (AND it’s on sale). I couldn’t get a bag AND sunnies, so I opted for these {$12} Céline look a likes! To keep the effortlessly casual look going, I kept the accessories to a bare minimum, wearing only my go-to midi rings. There you have it, a perfect “I don’t want to be dressed, but I have to be” look!!
