Mama/Daughter Style Series: Summer to Fall Transition + GIVEAWAY!

It's the funky time of year - weather-wise - when it's technically fall and I'm craving all things layers, textures and jeweled tones, but it's still summer-warm. Today, our outfits (with a special guest, wink wink) kind of take a little from each season to appease both season! And even better, our outfits are crammed packed with some awesome brands with some really neat stories and standards. I know I always feel a lot better about spending money with brands that I know aim to do good in the world - whether giving back, uplifting others or use sustainable materials that helps the world/keeps my people safer.  I am happy to share a bit about these brands to just that:

First, this tuxedo vest that I'm wearing is top notch craftsmanship and quality proving a piece that will last a lifetime.  You can forget fast fashion when you shop Project Gravitas!  Lisa started her amped up her business when she decided to own her moment (have Gravitas!), and today, her business is to remind women that we all have that special moment and we need to project it!  You'll definitely feel good in her clothes! I chose to style this vest down for a summer like day in the fall season, but can wear it many different ways! Oh, and at the bottom of this post - there is a giveaway for FOUR winners.

Nora's sweet little dress (you can request to have this print made into a dress!) and matching headband (came with a mama headband, too, that I'll have to wear with her soon) is by Organic Minikins - and just as the name implies, all their fabric is 100% organic. The owner, Marie, is as nice as can be and has been a dressmaker for over 20 years. Her story or why organic goes way back (you can read about it here) and is personal - but in an effort to provide safe and fashionable options for our precious little ones, she began this shop. I'm so glad she did!  Extra good news: now through October, when you make a purchase - just note my blog name in the note section to be entered to win a bloomer and headband set (shop will draw winner in November!).

Nora and I are wearing matching mama/daughter bracelets by Geo City Girls - and I've been wearing mine ever since (I love it!!). Nora is still getting used to a bracelet - but this is a fun piece that we'll have for years together. Geo City Girls shop has fabulous handcrafted jewelry made to give you that extra boost to feel good!  And I love that. Jewelry (and lipstick!) is totally one of those things that can transform any look. Katie, the shop owner, is a mom of 3 and she just gets it. Its the little things that can turn a day, a look or experience around! And hint hint, you should monitor my Instagram for a special giveaway coming later this week over yonder!
