Happy Saturday! Settling into this long weekend?
This week has absolutely flown by in a busy blur of fun. Some of you may have seen my (very detailed) Snapchat and Instagram updates regarding Collin's birthday on Thursday! He turned 22, and of course, we danced to Taylor Swift, ate donuts, and just made so many great memories. I don't know about you and your family, but I've always grown up celebrating Birthday Week. Treats and fun times galore from the weekend before your special day to the weekend afterward.
Friends came by the house, bringing plants, food, wine, and excellent conversation. Though we had a tiny gathering on the night of his party, it was still a splendid evening.
We strive for gratitude when times are sweet, and even in times that seem sour. We definitely recognize our privilege and honor the opportunities we've been given to lead these lives doing things we love. Unfortunately, many people around the world and even in our own country have suffered from oppression through acts of hate and terrorism, especially as of late.
This blog is typically a space for lifestyle posts, pretty photos, and our favorite brands, but failing to acknowledge these recent events of treachery would just feel dishonest. We hurt for Orlando. We hurt for Turkey. Finding the light in a time filled with so much darkness can be difficult. Personally, we just try to stand for what we believe in; human rights, women's rights, LGBT rights, civil rights, religious freedom, environmental preservation, and more.
Obviously, we're also vegan and are passionate about keeping our home and lifestyle waste-free. We try our best to support ethical fashion, and we are still finding brands we love. To find Alternative Apparel, a brand that offers recyclable and organic material paired with statement tees? I was stoked.
The shirt I decided on is insanely soft, comfortable, thin, and breathable. Long enough to wear with leggings, and thin enough to tuck into jeans with ease! I seriously am considering going back and purchasing all of their graphic tees! Wear your heart on your sleeve, and help spread the love with these graphic tees!
