Going Red with Kendra Scott Tonight!

Hi Friends,

I am so excited this morning because today kicks off a long few days of birthday celebrating.  Don't get me wrong, I am normally not a birthday person at all!! However, I think transitioning into a new decade feels a little different and I am going to soak in the last days of my 20's and celebrate the heck out of this weekend with my friends and I just can't wait.

Tonight I am celebrating the start of my birthday weekend with Kendra Scott and the American Heart Association and I can't think of a better place with a more important message to kick off the fun! February is Go Red for Women Month and I recently learned that cardiovascular diseases kill about one woman every 80 seconds and about 80% of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable.  Last year, I touched on some heart issues that my mom had been dealing with and how important, as women, it is to be our own biggest advocate.  The last few months, she has been having trouble again and I have been so proud to watch her advocate for herself to ensure that she gets the care that she needs.  Yesterday, she received a heart monitor to make sure that her heart is working properly and I am thrilled that tonight's event will benefit the American Heart Association.

It is highly likely that I will be wearing this exact outfit tonight (please don't judge).  I don't know about you, but when I find an outfit that I love, I wear the heck out of it!  And I love these pants and can't get enough of them!! I have really been into high waist trousers lately, but they also come in a mid rise version.  The fabric on these is so so soft.  This blouse had me at "hello" ruffles, flowers, and a bow? and a price point under $60, game over!  My Kendra Scott earrings are from their Go Red collection and as I mentioned here 20% of proceeds will be donated to AHA and will be a great way to support if you are not able to make tonight's event.  Hope to see you there!! Please see details below. xoxo

Not so plain white tee (shirt with heart)

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 ❤️❤️.
