Black & Blue Statement Necklace: Threads Worldwide Cam Necklace - Outfit post with details here

Oh hey there! Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is off to a great start! NYE is almost here! And no, I still don't have an outfit. 

Today I'm sharing two fun necklaces from Threads Worldwide! And, best part, one of them I am giving away! Disclaimer - I only wore the giveaway necklace for these photos, and I promise I don't have cooties. 

Threads Worldwide, based in Denver, is a fair trade jewelry company that helps artisan women in developing countries bring their jewelry to market here in the US through a social selling model and online shop. Many of the artisan cooperatives that they work with employ women who are survivors of sex trafficking, deaf, or otherwise struggling from social, economic, and political hardships. By teaching them a skill, jewelry making, paying them fairly, and providing them with a safe workplace, the women are able to emerge from poverty and thrive.

I LOVE companies like this that help employ women. Fashion that does good and gives back makes me so happy. 

Both the necklaces pictured above, are all handcrafted with sustainably harvested bullhorn. In Vietnam, after the cow has gone to market, the bullhorn is discarded in stockyards and is an ideal material for jewelry making, as it can be molded and sculpted into different shapes with just heat and water. It's a unique material because the color varies from white to brown to gray and can be dyed easily. Artisans in Vietnam have been making jewelry and goods from bullhorn for hundreds of years, and we're honored to help preserve their cultural tradition.

Other cool random things to note: Bullhorn is way more appropriate and ethical than making jewelry from synthetic materials like plastic, and they also don't hold heat, so they are perfect to wear in the hot summer months and pool-side. Score!

Now for the fun part! I am giving away the Cam necklace to a lucky Sweet & Sauer follower! I absolutely LOVE this piece. Its lightweight and definitely unique. Pair it with a plain top to let the necklace do all the talking. And know that you're wearing something special that helps women.

Cut Out Maxi + Giveaway!

Dress: Mint Julep Boutique

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope you're having a great week so far!

Today I wanted to share with you a cute new online boutique I found, Mint Julep! They approached me and asked if I was interested in a collaboration, and after looking through all of their cute clothes I said, "Heck yes!" I love finding fun new online boutiques that offer cute, on-trend clothes that are also affordable. Nothing on their site is too pricy and they have a ton of options to choose from.

This dress stood out to me as I thought it was the perfect maxi for dressier occasions, something I was currently missing in my wardrobe. Being black and white, I feel like this is a total staple piece that can transition from season to season. Right now I could wear it to nicer events (debating on even wearing it to a wedding), and come fall I can throw on a leather jacket and some booties and call it a day. The quality of this dress is amazing, much better than I was expecting - I was pleasantly surprised.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you've all had an amazing week!

This week's Friday Favorites is a giveaway edition! I love hooking you guys up whenever I can :)

It's no secret, I LOVE sunglasses (case in point - 98% of my Instagram pictures). I hate spending a fortune on glasses, though. It's one of those things I have a hard time justifying. When I found Nectar I was thrilled! Stylish sunnies that look just like some of those expensive brands out there, without the expensive price tag? Yes, count me in! I've been wearing this pair from Nectar all summer and I just love them. Speaking of love... I think you'll love Nectar sunnies just as much as me. So much so that I've teamed up with Nectar to give away a pair of their awesome sunnies - your choice!
