This Makes My Happy by Camp Moxie

Camp Moxie’s Fashion Camp

Camp Moxie is a t shirt company that hand prints all of their designs! They carry women’s and children’s tees and are bringing moxie back. But what is moxie?

MOXIE : force of character, determination, or nerve.

They are founded on the idea that your clothes should not only make you look good, they should make you feel good too. You can have moxie any time, any where. When you got moxie, you need the clothes to match.

This week they are having fashion camp and I get to feature their “This Makes Me Happy” tee. Makes me wanna sing the Pharrell song while I’m wearing it actually. I wanted to pair it with a super fun item, so I choose this skirt from Brickyard Buffalo because it makes me want to twirl around and dance. I love both of these items so much!

Definitely go visit Camp Moxie, because they have a ton of cute graphic tees! I love them for summer because you can wear them so many ways.

P.S. Use code: fashioncamp at checkout to get 25% off all tees!

fashionABLE’s Beautiful Summer Accessories

Today I am very excited to tell you about a fantastic brand, fashionABLE, that is not only fashionable, but helps some amazing women in Ethiopia maintain employment and support their families, while breaking the cycle of poverty.

Barrett Ward founded Mocha Club in 2005 – a new generation of activists giving up the cost of a few mochas, or $9 a month, to fund relief and development projects in Africa [themochaclub.org]. A few years later, Barrett moved to Ethiopia for a year. While there, he ran across Women at Risk, a group that works with women exploited in the sex industry. After seeing their effectiveness and the dignity restored in these women, he learned that one of the biggest challenges to keeping these women off the streets is gainful employment. For this purpose, fashionABLE was conceived.

“I started fashionABLE after witnessing the number of young girls and women having to make awful choices to support themselves and their families. When I talked to these women, I found that they didn’t want charity; they wanted an opportunity and the dignity to stand on their own feet and earn their money. Solutions to poverty don’t lie in continuing to only do charity, we have to create jobs. At fashionABLE we want to teach people that the next wave of social entrepreneurship is not about starting a business to give charity to Africa, but starting a business to give opportunities to Africa. Weaving and leather are big traditions in Ethiopia. By working with products that Ethiopian women already have skill with producing, fashionABLE ensures the quality of the craftsmanship, manufacturing process and design aesthetic.”   – Barrett Ward

Please go here to read about some of the amazing women that work for the fashionABLE brand.

The fashionABLE brand makes beautiful handcrafted scarves, bracelets, and leather goods and has recently released three new products that I want to share with you today! One of my favorite things about fashionABLE is that each product is named after one of the women that works for them!

The Mehari Beach Blanket: Hand dyed and hand woven in Ethiopia. Perfect for a lazy day of reading inside or a picnic in the park!Mehari Beach BlanketMehari-Beach-Blanket_Natural-Strawberry_life1

The Teshome Bracelets100% Ethiopian leather, 5 different colors to add to any outfit!TESHOMEbraceletschocolatebrownorgblueTeshome_woods-695x1024

Apricot Floral Print Maxi Dress from SheInside

I got to do an amazingly beautiful shoot with JessaKae and Ily Couture last week. This is the first set of photos that I get to show you! I got to wear my own clothes, like this gorgeous dress that SheInside sent to me, and then paired it with Ily Couture’s fun new summer jewelry pieces. I love this beautiful bright pink necklace. It’s perfect to wear with all of your summer outfits from spicing up a tee and jeans to adding the finishing touch to a flowy floral maxi.

This maxi is absolutely gorgeous. Do you remember the last flowy maxi I posted from SheInside? Well here is another one, that is at another fabulous price…only $22! They just have the best dresses for such good deals! Grab this one or shop for another, but trust me, you’ll thank me.

My Beach/Pool Must-Haves

Aside from the obvious cute swimsuit and cover-up I have put together a list of my must haves for the beach or the pool. I would also include a must have beach read, but I feel like that’s kind of obvious for me so just message me if you want to know my favs! Right now I’m reading ‘If I Stay’ by Gayle Forman, and I’m giving it two thumbs up so far! I included some suggestions that are on my wishlist in each category or things that I already love, but I’d love to hear what your favorites are too!

1. A Beach Bag – you have to have a cute tote to fit all of your must haves…duh.

Mara Hoffman Vinyl Tote – shopbop.comMara Hoffman Vinyl Tote

Seaside Striped Tote – forever21.comSeaside Striped Tote

2. Sunglasses – Look cute and keep the sun out of your eyes. I’m loving the colorful styles right now so much!

Ray-Ban Boyfriend Sunglasses – nordstrom.comRay-Ban Boyfriend Sunglasses

Tory Burch Cat Eye Sunglasses – nordstrom.comTory Burch Cat Eye Sunglasses

3. Headphones – Gotta have my tunes!

Frends ‘Taylor’ Headphones – nordstrom.comFrends 'Taylor' Headphones

4. Sunscreen – Protect your skin! I wear this moisturizer on my face every day, but if you are out in the sun make sure to use an SPF all over. Sun Bum smells soooo good!

5. Beach Towel – Just a must have, so why not get a cute one.

6. Hair-Ties – I love these hair ties because they are easy on your hair and have the cutest patterns.

7. Lip-Balm – If my lips are chapped I hate my life. These are two of my favorite lip balms. Both balms come in a plain color, but they have really cute tinted colors if you want to add a little color! I love that the Sugar brand has SPF added as well, to protect your pucker!

8. Re-Usable Water Bottle – Gotta stay hydrated out in the sun. I love these glass water bottles because they keep your drink cold and the pop top makes it easy to get in and out of. I only take these to the gym now too!

9. Hat – Another way to block the sun and look super stylish while doing it.
