I wrapped up my Tuesday afternoon with a super fun stop into Lotus Boutique to do some outfit planning for a Charity Fashion Show I am helping out with at the end of this month.I haven't been in the store in forever and will definitely be going back to do some shopping -- so many cute, colorful Spring pieces -- I wish I had time to stay and shop. But, by the time we got done with outfits & accessories, I needed to get outta there in hopes of avoiding traffic, get home in time to eat & make it yoga on time. So, all this girly fun and excitement over clothes, accessories & fashion show is great and all, but what's even better and more important, is the reason behind why this event is evening happening in the first place.
On Valentine's Day, I received this heartbreaking message from a gf of mine, Linda...
So, that thread really say's it all. We are putting on this fashion show for a wonderful cause to raise money + everyone attending will be bringing/donating a pair of shoes for the children at Tuckaseegee Elementary. I could not be happier to be a part of this event! Linda, is the owner of Heels.com (which will be providing shoes for the show, naturally) and Lotus, providing the clothing. I am so incredibly fortunate in my life and have so much -- I live a life of abundance, no doubt. It is such a wonderful feeling to be able to give back even in the smallest form, such as volunteering my time and donating shoes to these children. I mean, I'm willing to bet that most of us don't even think twice as we slip our feet into one of our several pairs of shoes as we get ready to go about our day. I know I don't. I sit there and think about what pair of shoes will look best with my outfit that day...
If you'd like to donate a pair of shoes for the little ones and/or make a monetary donation towards this wonderful cause, here is more information on our event. Every little bit helps.
Here are some of my outfits for the show! If your local, be sure to check out Lotus Boutique in The Metropolitan for some fun, on trend styles. You can pop into the store to donate a pair of shoes and do a little shopping for yourself as well!
Alright you guys know my love of bright & beautiful colors! I love this outfit all on its own, BUT these bright, eclectic accessories + bag really made it POP. My eyes lit up when they brought all these stackable bracelets over!
