{CLOSED} GIVEAWAY: Pride Has Arrived

Ellen Tailor Nube 9 PrideIn celebration of Pride Month 2015, my friends at Nube9 created this special Inspirewear racerback tank. Three graphs visualize the progress our country has made in LGBT rights over the past 12 years: the increasing number of states that legalized gay marriage, the number of senators who vote to eliminate barriers and the increasing number of residents in states where bans have been removed.

I’m proud to wear this tank and know that Nube9 will donate a percentage of the sales to the ACLU. Not only are you helping a good cause with your purchase, you’re helping save the enviornment. All of their items are made from recycled plastic bottles and the material is stupid comfy, doesn’t lose it’s shape nor does it shrink or fade.

All of the tanks are made locally in Seattle’s Captiol Hill neighborhood. Here are photos of my actual top being hand sewn. Keep scrolling for your chance to WIN one of your own.

Floral Fun

Call it El Nino, global warming, or God’s gift to Seattle but the weather has been unusually AMAZING for this time of year! With temperatures in the low to mid 80’s, we can’t help but be ecstatic that the gloomy rainy days of winter are behind us…at least for now. (The infamous “June Gloom” is a few weeks away but let’s cross that wet bridge when we get there, shall we?)

As you saw in my last post, my mom and sister were in town for Mother’s Day weekend. I’m pretty sure my mom thinks I’m about ready to kill myself since I gave almost half of my closet to my sister. hahaha! I’ve been a bit of a pack rat my entire life. I’m not quite sure what’s gotten into me but I’ve downsized quite a bit over the past few months. While my sister shopped through my closet, I was rediscovered this floral kimono I picked up from Kohl’s. I paired the light and colorful wrap with a casual tank from Old Navy, my favorite Old Navy distressed jeans, and layered on a few necklaces.

This was also the inaugural outing for my new favorite accessory. This rose gold Michael Kors watch is bling-tastic and stunning! The photo doesn’t do it justice. I’d wanted a rose gold watch for a long time but always felt like it blended in too much with my olive skin. When I spotted this one with diamonds, I had to have it! It was featured on the online shopping site Zulily but before I bought it, I swung by my nearest Nordstrom to try it on in person. There’s no shame in shopping for deals because I was able to snag this for a significant discount!
