Happy Monday everyone! Thank you again for all the kind words last week with my Crohn's post. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the love! I'm happy to report the surgery went well and I'm recovering at home. I'm feeling pretty good so far and adjusting to life with my new accessory. 

I can't tell you how many compliments I get when I wear this top! It's seriously one of my favorites. It's super comfortable and light-weight. It's perfect for being dressed up or down, which we all know I just love. These shorts... you guys. These are Abercrombie & Fitch shorts from college. I can't believe they still fit. Thank goodness the boyfriend short look is still going strong, right? Don't you just love shopping your closet and finding old treasures that still work? 

Now let's talk about this headband. How pretty is it?! I'm such a fan of fashion that gives back, and Headbands of Hope falls right into that category. For every headband purchased, Headbands of Hope gives a headband to a child with cancer. You can read about how the company started here. I already have such a love and appreciation for companies that give back, however this company is particularly special to me as I'm fighting cancer myself. I love that these headbands make these children feel special and good about themselves during such a challenging time. It must be devastating to these kids to lose their hair through chemotherapy. Anything to help make them happy and feel better about themselves makes me happy. Plus, all their headbands are super cute so it's a win win! Fighting health issues is tough and can definitely wear on your self-esteem after a while. I'm all for something that's encouraging and helps others feel good.

Jean Shorts & THE BEST T-Shirt



Tee: Z Supply (can purchase here) / Shorts: Zara  / Shoes: Qupid / Necklace: See below

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! If you follow me on Snapchat (mallorysauer), then you saw I FINALLY went to Avanti! It's the cool new place to eat in Denver at the moment, definitelly check it out if you're in the area!

Today I'm sharing a very simple look - jean shorts and a basic tee. Now I know this is really simple, but I want to talk about how simple doesn't have to mean boring. I absolutely love wearing a good tee and jeans or jean shorts and dressing it up with fun shoes or accessories. Or even hair and a bold lip color. I saw a girl at a concert a week ago wearing a very similar outfit - jean shorts, basic white tee, colorful necklace, statement heels and a leather jacket. She looked awesome! Simple, yet so stylish. Throwing on a jacket over this outfit is the perfect way to take a look like this from day to night. Sometimes outfits can be this simple and work. No overthinking needed :)
Now let me tell you about this tee. RUN and buy yourself one because they are uh-MAZE-ing. I have this tee in 4 colors now. They fit perfectly, are beyond soft and comfortable, and seriously get better with age (or time I should say). And they are reasonably priced. There are a ton of great tees in the market, but are usually pretty pricy. Not these babies. Z Supply has a TON of great basics - perfect for simple outfits like this one.
Last thing I want to talk about is this necklace. I recently became connected with House of Gratia et Caritas, a company that provides coverage of charitable companies that give back fashionably. I love companies that give back, and I especially love being able to work with such brands that give back in the name of fashion. This necklace came from a company called Greenola Style - a fair trade sustainable brand from Chicago that pays fair wages and empowers artisans in India, Kenya and Bolivia. My necklace came from Bolivia. I love that it's hand-made with special meaning.
I have another giveaway coming to my Instagram this week - make sure you're following me so you don't miss out! Have a wonderful week!
