WHAT I WORE WEDNESDAY: fashionABLE



top // pants (old, similar) // scarf // necklace


Summer just makes me so happy. The days are longer, the nights are hotter, and the beer tastes better. This is one of my go-to outfits for going out for drinks/dinner with friends or for date night. The palazzo pants are so deceiving - they look fancy but actually, they are like wearing pajamas. 

While I love summer for it's warm temps, I feel like restaurants and bars think that's a go-ahead to blast the AC. Inevitably, I'm always a little bit cold while inside. Enter this gorgeous scarf from fashionABLE. It's perfect because it's lightweight for the warm summer months, but also keeps me warm. Even better? The mission behind fashionABLE

The company was started by Barrett Ward, a local to Nashville, after he visited Ethiopia and saw the lack of resources and opportunity for women in the region. Because of the lack of opportunity, many women are forced into the sex trafficking industry or prostitution to make a living. This prompted Barrett to take action. He works with the women to hep them start small business cooperatives, and then partners and requires manufacturers to employ the women with fair wages and fair hiring practices. Now these women create gorgeous scarves, leather goods, and home accessories for fashionABLE, creating a more sustainable business and positive future. 

I strongly encourage you to take a look at the products - it's such a great mission and each purchase helps a woman provide for herself and her family in a positive, healthy, and productive way. I'm loving this blanket, this scarf, and these bracelets. Now this is a shopping spree you can feel good about. :)

I got them from Anthro a couple years ago and have gotten so much wear out of them! They are my instant "feel good" pants :)

Love this outfit, you are so right about restaurants blasting the AC in the summer. I feel as though I always need to bring an added layer with me just in case (even when it is 80+ degrees out) so that scarf sounds like a perfect option. FashionAble sounds like a great company, will have to go check it out!
