top: c/o a-thread / skirt & belt: target

have you guys heard of a-thread? they’re a women’s apparel and accessories company based out of LA. not only do they offer great products, but they also operate on a “shop & effect” model, meaning that with every purchase, a-thread donates 5% to a non-profit organization of your choice. so, you get to buy something that you love and feel good about it. win, win.

the top that i’m wearing is super comfortable and soft. it’s one of those tops that can be worn with virtually anything. jeans and a cardigan, shorts, or a maxi skirt. i don’t know about you, but i love those kinds of pieces.

here’s some other things i’m swooning over: this scarf, this button-upthis dressthis necklace, and this pouch.

    I really love the drape of these fabrics on you… and the green belt is a nice surprise pop of color. Very cute, but elegant
