So, if you follow me on pinterest there might be a chance that I've been annoying you with my incessant pinning of fall fashion. I'm currently just obsessed with fall. Probably because I know that this fall brings with it not just cooler weather, but also non-maternity clothes, boots, finished construction, and oh yea... a sweet baby boy!
So yes, a little obsessed with the prospect of fall and I'll take any drop in weather as a chance to start playing in some of the trends. i.e. I'm in love w/ my new army jacket from Conversation Pieces. I think it works great now, but my imagination is already playing around with all the ways I'll wear it when I'm not toting the baby bump. And these pants -- okay okay they are a little on the small side, but these are non-maternity that Stitch Fix sent me a couple months back and they have been great! Again -- will fit better post maternity.
And one more outfit brag,... this necklace! It is from the boutique of a sweet friend, Amber, called Beautiful & Beloved. From Amber's lips (or fingertips?):
It is my path in life to remind women of every age and ethnicity that we are daughters of God, and He calls us His beloved and to Him we are breathtakingly beautiful. The online shop sells items that are handmade by survivors of slavery. Did you know that there are more slaves in the world right now than ever before in human history?? Beautiful and Beloved Boutique partners with organizations around the world who not only take these brave survivors in, they teach them a trade, they offer counseling and hope. These survivors get a new chance at life and you get the chance to help them in that journey by purchasing their unique and beautiful merchandise.
Pretty awesome right?! This shop is still fairly new so please make your way over to say hello and check out all the goodies that are worth so much more than their price tags -- each piece literally means life for these woman! Shopping doesn't get much better than that! Here's where to find Amber and her boutique:
(pssst... word on the street is that Rouge & Whimsy is hosting a special Beautiful & Beloved giveaway!)
