Noonday Collection

I’m sure that you have seen and heard of fair trade EVERYTHING. Well, this girl has never gotten into the trend because (1) it usually smells a little funky (2) it isn’t really that cute and (3) I don’t trust that it actually makes to the people who need it.

 

Well I was recently introduced to Noonday Collection, which is a jewelry and accessories company that gives dignified jobs to people in developing countries.  Yes, I was skeptical at first – I don’t trust very easily – but after checking out the website, I found about ten things I wanted almost immediately.  Not only does it help out men and women who might’ve been in danger of being trafficked, but it is actually very, very fashionable! (And it doesn’t smell funky)

My beautiful and fashionable friend Sara, the one who introduced me, recently became a Noonday Ambassador and I HAD to throw a trunk show, like immediately. I put together a few looks so you can see how awesome it is!

 

My FAVORITE necklace is this beautiful lilac paper bead necklace – also known as a shirt, because its massive. (It is sold out now but here is a similar necklace!)

Dress it up with a white lace dress or romper OR put it with a simple cotton dress to dress it down! I also love to wear this necklace with a high neck grey tank and cut-off shorts.

Now for my other favorite, the Imperial Horn Necklace. It’s THE cool girl necklace – if you wanna look cool, you need it.

A little blurry but you get the idea – I LOVE the Summer vibe of this necklace! It is super easy to wear with a simple tank top and shorts, AND it looks so awesome with our polka dot clutch!!

These statement necklaces can be intimidating – so remember to stay simple with your outfit if you are going to wear one! The easiest way? High-neck tank top, and Old Navy has a bunch of those right now!

My favorites:

And before I start, I’d like to say that every single thing they sell is way cooler in person. That’s all. You may proceed.

The Imperial Horn Necklace

It might look intense and crazy, but let me tell you, it is SO COOL. You will get major cool girl points if you wear this! This can carry from Summer into Fall. Wear it with your neutrals, especially with white and black.

The City Scape Necklace

Ok, this one is WAY COOLER in person – I promise. I also plan on taking pictures with this one as soon as I get it in my order!!

La Bella Bag

This was my splurge/ I used my hostess benefits on this one. Need I explain? Yeah, its amazing and I can’t wait to travel with it!

Chennai Bag

This one is on my “Wait to go on sale” list – it is just fun, and funky, and easy to wear. And I hate that I had to choose between the La Bella and this one – it is SO AMAZING!

Sunita Necklace

This one is just simple and sparkly, I plan on wearing it with a TON. Definitely an every day necklace.

The Rachel Necklace

This is the not-so-scary statement necklace that will probably work in anyone’s wardrobe.  This one is on my list to buy in the future!

The Pagoda Necklace

Talk about TRENDING! This is the Noonday Necklace I’ve seen out and about the most.  You could wear this with a simple tee or even a dress to work.  (Also on my list to buy in the future)

Modern Romance Necklace

*Heart Eyes Emoji* x 10

Ibis Necklace

ON SALE!! And seriously perfect for tank top season.

Ibrahim Necklace

It is very hard to find a good silver necklace – and this one just fits the bill. Plus, you can take off the chain extender and wear it as a bracelet – say whaaa??

Monaco Necklace

This one is just simply pretty, also I can never turn down a white piece of jewelry. (Why is that? I don’t know) Probably the easiest to wear to work and wear with a dress! Ad guess what – ITS ALSO ON SALE!!

If my ears were pierced:


So that is my review of the Noonday Collection.  It is definitely worth a visit to their website, and sale section! Cool girl jewelry for a really awesome cause!

My ambassador is Sara Davis – she is awesome, and if you decide to buy some new accessories, make sure you make her your ambassador – or if you wanna set up a trunk show shoot her an email!

DRESSEMBER: Week 1

“Sex trafficking is a form of modern slavery in which someone coerces another person into commercial sex or exploits a child in the commercial sex trade. Simply, it is sexual violence as a business. The nightmare of forced prostitution thrives when law enforcement cannot or does not protect vulnerable children and women.”  – International Justice Mission

To think that this is happening to MILLIONS of children and women all over the globe infuriates me and inspires me want to do something about it.  So when I heard about Dressember, an event that involves wearing dresses every day in order to raise money and awareness in the fight against human trafficking, it was pretty obvious what I had to do: Team up with some beautiful ladies and join the movement!

You can see the rules and learn about the movement HERE!

I think everyone has a cause that makes their heart heavy and this is mine. Instead of pouring ice water on my head I’ve decided to do this! I am going to try to post once a week to show you what dresses I’ve worn during the cold winter.  (Should be fun in Germany….)

DECEMBER 1:

IMG_8484

I had the day off from work, so I wore a maxi dress and knit on the couch almost the whole day – I’ve gotta say, I love me some maxi.

DECEMBER 2:

IMG_8489

Silk dress + booties + festive sweater = perfect holiday work outfit! I just love mint green during the holidays, its the less obvious winter color that I just can’t get enough of.

DECEMBER 3:

IMG_8492

Dressember — Made possible with boots and cozy jackets.

DECEMBER 4:

IMG_8485

Sweatshirt dresses can be worn to work with a fabulous blazer and a sparkly necklace!

DECEMBER 5: Christmas Party!

IMG_8486Yes the panther dress makes another appearance! I mean, what dress could be more perfect for your first work party that says “I’m classy but SUPER FUN!” than a dress with gold panthers on it?

IMG_8487

(yes that is a cat hair on my dress… don’t judge)

DECEMBER 6: Christmas Shopping

IMG_8488

Ok, this really is my formula for looking chic:  Over-the-knee boots + sheer tights+ mini dress + long jacket + long simple necklace.  SO EASY and warm!

DECEMBER 7: Church

IMG_8491

Oh yes leather and velvet.  This outfit will probably be repeated…. I just can’t get enough velvet, and my husband got me this awesome leather jacket for Christmas! WANT TO WEAR IT EVERY DAY.

Mary Katherine is another member of our team who is very passionate about this cause as well AND has impeccable style…. I mean check out this layering! She is amazing.  Get inspired by her looks this week:
