Happy Friday, Friends!
I was recently contacted by the American Heart Association and Go Red For Women to help promote their #howtogored campaign. National Go Red Day was last month, but their mission and cause is something that can (should) be discussed year round. Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease.
I think it is great when fashion makes a statement you care about and can give back...... What the American Heart Association didn't know when they reached out to me was at this very time my mom was one of the very women they are helping.
My mom looks like the picture of health. She is an active 55 year old (sorry mom), runs, works out every day, skis, road bikes, and honestly is probably in better shape than me. Recently, while we were skiing I noticed her lips were a little blue, which I thought was because we were both so cold. It turns out she was having some issues with her heart and we were lucky that we noticed a physical symptom and we have been working with some great docs to figure out exactly what is going on.
Not only does this shirt help raise money and awareness for a good cause, it is also pretty darn cute (and comfy!) get yours here! I also love this one and this one that also give back to great causes. I have had this leather jacket forever... it is my favorite thing to throw on over a tee shirt or girly dress to give it a little edge. Love these two similar options from TopShop (Faux Leather Biker Jacket $90, Orbit Leather Moto Jacket $320). Also, these are my very favorite black pumps - I can run, jump, and wear them all day if I need to (and they are a great price for a gorgeous heel that has really lasted $118).
Get my tee here or shop the rest of my look below. I hope you have a wonderful, safe, and heart healthy weekend ❤️❤️.
