Hey there, loves! How was your weekend?
I enjoyed a pretty low key weekend – brunch with friends, toured my townhouse now that it’s completely done, bought a new mattress and enjoyed a spa day yesterday morning with my best friend. Overall, it was nice to kind of kick back before I spend all over next weekend unpacking and finding a place for everything! I’m so excited about that, though, don’t get me wrong 🙂
I cozied up in this cardigan a couple of weeks ago and got so many questions after y’all saw it in my IG stories. It’s a great Fall option to have on those crisp mornings. Cardigans are always my go to in the morning when I’m doing my morning routine and taking care of the boys, so I know this one will continue getting a lot of good use. These high-waisted distressed skinny jeans have been in my wardrobe for quite some time. They really can’t be beat, especially for $70 … and right now they’re 25% off so they’re under $50!
I hope you can find some good Fall outfit inspiration from this post and that it helps fill in any gaps you may feel like you have in your Fall wardrobe! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great start to your week! xo.
• TO HELP BABIES & MOMS: Diapers are not provided by disaster relief agencies. The Texas Diaper Bank is in need of cash and diaper donations to provide emergency diaper kits to the families that are being displaces due to Hurricane Harvey. Designate your donation to ‘disaster relief’! Donate HERE.
• TO HELP THE HOMELESS: The Houston Homeless Coalition is exploring disaster relief funding that can be used specifically for homeless and displaced formerly homeless individuals to get them back into housing. They encourage you to consider donating to one of their many partners to help these individuals at this time. Partners list HERE.
• TO HELP THE DISPLACED: You can donate to the American Red Cross and the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. You can submit an easy $10 donation to the American Red Cross by texting HARVEY to 90999. These two funds will be helping to recover people from their homes and providing emergency supplies to those in need. Read more about what the American Red Cross does specifically HERE. You can also donate to the Salvation Army, who are on the ground to provide physical, emotional and spiritual care to survivors and relief workers.
• TO HELP ANIMALS: There are quite a few places you can make donations to to help all the fur babies. Austin Pets Alive! has been providing relief to shelters directly effected by Hurricane Harvey. You wouldn’t believe some of the photos of all these scared babies in cages at rescue shelters. Some rescue shelters in Houston were told they didn’t need to evacuate and then they opened up the dams in the surrounding areas and it caused fast flooding, on top of the rain that was continuing to fall, to those who were thought to not be affected. So, these smaller rescues are working to get their rescues to other animal rescue facilities, like Austin Pets Alive!, that aren’t in the direct line! Another one that I found is Dallas Dog RRR and they are welcoming displaced animals and providing medical care as well as food / supplies. They need funding in order to be able to provide these babies with the care they need. Please consider helping! See my latest Instagram post to see how sad these babies are!
Austin Pets Alive! needs donations in the form of cat litter [clumping preferred], Martingale collars [medium], tarps, dog treats [chew toys / rawhides, treat logs, peanut butter and Milk Bones for Kongs. As you can imagine, these pups are SO stressed!
• Keep an ear out when the local news is on to see where you can donate locally as I know there are a lot of donation drives going on right now!
In addition to these, please continue to pray. The people of Houston have a loooong road ahead of them. Think about it this way – If your house flooded, would you have the money to rebuild your home? If the answer is no, please please consider giving even just a little bit.
If there are any other ways we can help, please leave a comment below! xo.
