The fall harvest is finally among us. Autumn is like a season out of a storybook; it is full of spices and spooks, pumpkins and knits, foliage and apple cider. Fall happens to be one of my favorite seasons because of the beautiful colors and scenery.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The J.M. Smucker Company. The opinions and text are all mine. I’m partnering with Folgers® at Walmart through the Share A Cup & A Story campaign, to create personal connections with Veterans and honor their service to our country.
In honor of this upcoming Veterans Day, I invited my neighbor Frank over for a cup of Folgers® Classic Roast from Walmart while we chatted about his military background and his service to our country. In all honestly, I never knew much about the military until I became a military spouse. What I’ve learned is that the military community has the strongest support system I’ve ever seen. Thankfully for me and my husband Scott, our neighbor Frank looks out for us both in terms of careers and simply being a good neighbor.
In a way, I feel like I was born to wear these ruffle pants. They reminded of glam-rock, and like something I would have worn if I were the frontwoman of a band. Rock and roll is a part of me. It inspires me, it makes me feel nostalgic for a time I never even existed. To me that is so powerful, and there is no other music that can transcend me across decades.
I am so excited to announce the launch of the Bridging the Gap campaign! Taking part in social change, 200 Influencers have stepped up to challenge the social media and fashion industry as we know today. Men and women from multiple ages, backgrounds and disciplines have so much to offer one another. After all, we are stronger together! This fall’s campaign unites the Millennial and Midlife Demographics to blur artificial boundaries while encouraging the concept of reciprocal mentorship – a new and empowered way of bringing the generations together by each sharing their unique gifts with the other.
For this campaign, I am partnered with the fabulous Suzanne Bell of AskSuzanneBell.com. I had such an amazing time getting to know Suzanne and truly bridging the gap of our ages. Below you can read her biography, and get to know more about this woman who has lived around the world, worked as a fashion buyer for Nordstrom, and has lived a very exciting and chic life thus far!
I’m so excited to share with you a new series on my blog, Fashion Talks. Think of this series as a mood board full of nouns people, places and things that inspire me. The first theme will cover the ultimate badass Trinity from the Matrix.
In this post I’m sharing a big secret – where to score the hottest jewelry brand for CHEAP. Have you heard of Gorjana? They happen to be my personal favorite jewelry brand because of their minimal and extremely stylish jewelry.
