Because I Said I Would

 Over this Summer Matt and I have been lucky enough to volunteer with our group Because I Said I Would and really help in our small way to make Denver a wonderful place!
You can learn more about our Denver Chapter of Because I Said I Would HERE
 We volunteered at water stations during the Mile High Cystic Fibrosis Climb. I know a lot of families that have someone with CF and my friend Corie is really involved in the Denver CF Foundation so it was really nice to do our part!
In June we took served Healthy Meal for the Homeless and it was a true assembly line process! We served over 150 meals that day! It was such a nice sense of accomplishment for us all!
 Matt and I are also lucky enough to have made a couple of great new friends in the group, we have the best time with them.
 A few weekends ago we did a trash pick-up along the Platte river in downtown Denver and after the volunteering we hosted a cookout for our volunteers! Matt manned our tailgate grill!
 Our group picked up over 21 bags of trash that morning and I loved hearing stories about how people were stopping to thank our volunteers for working so hard!
While they picked up trash I was setting up the cookout and holding down our pavilion!
We have a lot more things coming up like CPR certification and much more!
I have always said it... Volunteering is truly selfish because although you are doing so much to help you leave feeling so good.

Fresh Looks for Fall

My friend Jamie read my mind the other day, I was going to create some "Fall Must Have" looks and she reached out and said she needed new Fall boards.... Perfect! She is SO much fun to shop for. Usually we do a tad more classic for her but I wanted to reach outside her usual for some of the looks!
Here are the top trends for this Fall/Winter:
Chunky knits
Bomber Jackets
The color "Honey" and "Nude"

On the following boards there are literally 74+ mix and match looks! These pieces can carry Jamie thru Winter with just a few add-ons for the new season! Most everything comes from Evereve, Target, Free People, Nordstrom and Anthropologie

The spotlight on this board is the chunky sweater in Nude! It goes over all these tops for different degrees of dressy and occasion. There is nothing this sweater can't go with! This board goes from Car Pool to Date Night!
Free People Cardigan

I wanted to add another layering piece and this Honey cardigan is PERFECT! With this color it will go with black jeans, blue jeans and on top of dresses as well!

2 Words: Leopard Bomber!!! What more could you need?
Leopard Bomber

In Oklahoma Game day is a serious thing and whether you just wear these updates to your game day wear or throw on the bomber jacket you are SET!
Casual/Game Day Looks

The bomber is so versatile and YES it can go over that Free People tunic! I have always said Leopard is a neutral! And I LOVE the "Pajama Top" look and this one from Forever 21 is great!
Leopard Bomber Mixed Prints

I wanted to give Jamie a comfy dress option to wear with tennis shoes and one that can be dressed up with the jackets and booties! And neck bandanas are all the rage 
Day to Date Night #2

Again this Honey sweater goes with so much, I love pairing it with this navy stripe tee for Fall!

Here are some fun Date Night looks that will look so great on you! I LOVE that sweater with the pom poms on the sleeves
Date Night

Lastly I ALWAYS love jewel tones and both of these tops will bring in some jewel tones for fall and I LOVE pairing it with the rose gold from Kendra Scott!
Plum Looks
