Let's talk ethical fashion. Love 41 is an amazing leather handbag and accessory company whose sole mission is to help reform and rebuild the community in Rwanda.
Ok guys, it's the third to the last week of school. Trust me, I'm counting down the days. Before I tell you about the amazing ethical fashion brand that I'm featuring today….I wanted to share a little bit about our summer vacation plans. So, I'll be off from teaching for about 8 weeks this summer. And, we've decided NOT to pull Lydia out of preschool. Before you say I'm a horrible mom, here is WHY. We WILL be decreasing her to a couple days a week. Her days will be much shorter. But honestly? It's two fold. I'm worried that if she has NO school at all for the entire summer, the transition back in the fall with be difficult. And if I'm being totally transparent…..I want a little bit of a vacation for myself. Teaching is the type of job where you are required to give constant emotional output. So is parenting. I'm looking forward to having a couple days a week to just, sit in a coffee shop and sip a latte. It's not TOTALLY horrible, right?
Ok, can we talk about the amazing bag that I'm carrying in these pictures? It's stunning right? It's also from an amazing ethical fashion line, Love 41. Love 41 was founded by Suzette Munson after a trip to Rwanda in 2010. When she saw the extreme poverty and suffering of the Rwandan people, she felt compelled to HELP. So, her company makes amazing handbags and accessories. They give ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of profits to Africa New Life Ministries, a Christian organization seeking to stabilize, educate, and provide for Rwandans.
The purse I styled (the Wandering Fringe Bag) is my FAVORITE summer handbag. It's the perfect size, and can easily be dressed up or down. While I'm wearing it here with a casual summer outfit, I'll also be bringing it along for my New York trip this summer. I can't wait to wear it with wedges and a girlie sundress when my dear darling toddler is nowhere in sight.
