EARTH DAY

Tree huggers unite! Today we celebrate our mother earth. Here are a few of my favorite earth-loving products to get you in the spirit.

  1. (From top left) Amour Vert sells terrific, soft basics made from organic materials. Plus they sell a tree for every t-shirt sold. Do your part and get this adorably french striped number. 2. I’m dying to get a jar of Monastery Attar Repair Concentrate. Their products are made from whole, natural ingredients and in spirit of Earth Day, everything is 20% off! 3. Whenever I do a major closet cleanse, I bring my castoffs to Urbanity. The staff feels like family and their racks are full of the best of the best new and used styles. 4. It just wouldn’t be a weekend without a trip to Lush. I can hardly get through the week without a bath with my favorite Yoga Bath Bomb.

WORKING WITH IT

Converting your day look to a night out can be tough work, but it’s easier than you think with the Au Rate‘s elegant jewels.

So, how do we do it? Let’s get down to business.

Work Day to Happy Hour

I have a feeling fashion girls everywhere will be swapping their overalls for suspenders. You’ll look strapping in suspended trousers with a button up shirt and low heels at the office. For work, I like to keep my jewelry simple. Au Rate’s Mini Charm Pyramid ring is delicate and perfect for layering.

For night, keep the suspenders. Substitute the button up with a crushed velvet wrap top (perfect for holiday) and gold mule sandals for the conservative heels. These Flower earrings are the perfect addition to step your happy hour game up.

Errands to Girls Night

Saturdays are for markets, laundromats, and the couch. Lucky for me, wearing sweatpants outdoors isn’t frowned upon any more. Pair this sleek pair with a slouchy cool sweater and your favorite kicks.

Don’t even worry about washing your hair. Just throw on a velvet baseball hat and head out the door. Add just a touch of glam with this mini charm bracelet.

Girls night! When it’s time to hit the town with your ladies, impress with less. Pair that same sweater with a wrap skirt, fun heels, and simple pendant necklace.

LIGHTEN THE MOOD

I think now is a good time to let you in on a little secret:

Its gonna be OK.

Some things are out of our control, but there is always hope. Here’s a few things you can do instead of worrying about what the future holds.

  1. Plant something Join a gardening club, start an herb garden, or volunteer to help plant trees with your neighborhood’s beautification program.
  2. Reach enlightenment Start meditating, pray, or have your chakras read. Spiritual healing of every flavor does the body, and soul, good.
  3. Get pampered Give yourself a spa day. Go to Lush and load up on your favorite bath bombs, masks, lotions, and scrubs. While your at it, try multi masking for your best skin ever.
  4. Do good Find a cause that heals your soul. Volunteer at a homeless shelter or visit children in the hospital. Read to kids or help puppies and kitties find a loving home. There’s so much good work to be done right in your backyard.
  5. Support a just cause Click here for a full list of Pro-Women, Pro-Immigrant, Pro-Earth, and Anti Bigotry causes that need your help.
