Target X Vital Voices Limited Collection

Red alert (literally)! Target has a new collaboration out in stores right now. The Target X Vital Voices collection has become one of my new favorite things.

If you all didn’t know, I studied social work in college. In fact, I recently graduated with a masters in social work. I have a passion for people who don’t have the same opportunities I had and seek to make those opportunities available to all people. There’s something that hurts my heart when I see people struggling to make ends meet when they have the skills and talent to do something amazing, but don’t have the means to get there.

One thing I love seeing is when for-profit companies partner with non-profit organizations to promote what the non-profit is doing. If you’ve ever worked for or with a not-for-profit organization, you’ll quickly recognize that their main sources of funding come from grants (either public from the government, or private from private foundations) and independent donors. Without one, the other funding source becomes all the more important. Visibility and awareness for non-profits are so important because it opens the door for new potential donors. So when I learned about Target’s collaboration with one of their grant recipient, Vital Voices, I was ecstatic!

You obviously know and love Target, so here’s a little information about Vital Voices Global Partnership. According to the website, Vital Voices’ mission “is to identify, invest and bring visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities.” Basically, they empower women around the world to combat the exploitation of women and children. They help women become change agents within their governments and equip them with the business and communications skills to provide for their families.

As I mentioned in my guide to shopping ethically, there are times where it's hard to purchase from ethical sources due to availability of products and how much money you have in your budget. When companies see the value in partnering with and supporting not-for-profit organizations, it makes me more likely to spend there. Which is why I bought several pieces from the Target X Vital Voices collection at my local store.

The collection at Target is in partnership with the in-house brand, A New Day. It features some awesome new pieces that would go well in your own capsule wardrobe. Like the rest of the A New Day brand, they offer these products in all sizes! Yay inclusivity!

  • If I were to pick a favorite outfit of the week, it would probably be Tuesday’s. The office I work in gets really cold, so even though it’s in the 70’s in Texas, I have to dress warmer for work. Anyone else work in an icebox? ❄️

  • Is it bad that I kind of want it to get super cold again so I can wear this coat? 🙈 I got it at a vintage shop in Deep Ellum called @fleastyle. It’s been in the 70’s all week in DFW, which means it’s officially time for me to switch my closet over to spring. Would y’all like to see a post on the blog about switching over your closet? Let me know in the comments! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Sooooooo I didn’t get the chop... yet! Why? Because this was my first time having a new stylist cut my hair in about 10 years. I would have gotten it cut before I moved, but I didn’t realize how bad of shape it was in! How long have you gone to your hair stylist? 
I highly recommend Liz at @metsalonco in Plano! She completely understood and put my fears at ease. I’ll be seeing her again in a couple months to do something a little more drastic! 😉

I have a hair appointment tomorrow and I’m trying to decide if I should keep it long or get a lob. .

  • Yesterday, I DELETED over 500 😱 followers from my Instagram, and I’m SO HAPPY I did. I took the suggestion from another blogger, @austentosone, to go through my followers and check for spam accounts. I thought I’d have a few, but y’all, it was out of control. •

I really care about community. I create content not only because I love creating things, but because I love sharing them with people who are also interested in sustainable fashion. I want this to be a space where we can talk about ethical and sustainable fashion. A two way conversation. I want my blog to be a resource for people who are seeking a new lifestyle. What are some questions you’ve had about ethical and sustainable fashion? Let me know in the comments below! •

If you’re a fellow influencer who is struggling with comparison and just keeping up with the rest, you’re not alone. Know that your value is NOT found in a number. You are loved. You were created with a purpose. Don’t lose sight of that purpose by focusing on a number. •

Today on the blog, I’m sharing why I deleted all those followers and more about my intention for MINIMALISTA.
  • Who else is happy it’s spring? 🌸
Confession: I still haven’t switched my closet over. My parents are coming to town this weekend, so I’m going to wait until after their visit to switch over. 🌷
Because I still haven’t unpacked my spring clothing, this is a #tbt to my trip to NYC over Labor Day. This top is the Texture & Thread brand at @madewell, and it will definitely be featured again this spring! While this exact print isn’t available anymore, there are some solid ones in beautiful colors. Both of the tops I did find at Madewell are under $40! #LTKunder50 🌼

  • What is one item you have in your closet that you consistently use? Today, I’m wearing this top I got 7 years ago for spring. It’s amazing how long clothing will last when you take care of it! 
But aside from this top, I don’t have a lot of spring/summer clothing. So yesterday I shared 8 items on my wishlist for spring! You can check that out by going to the link in my profile.

  • What do you wear on days where the weather can’t decide what it wants to do? In Dallas today, it’s 60 degrees but gloomy and rainy 🌧 so we can’t go out and enjoy. 
I’ve had this tote from @nisoloshoes for three years now and it’s still the best bag I’ve ever purchased. The exact style isn’t available anymore (the Joann tote), but I’ve linked the Lori tote which is similar! Plus, with @afterpayusa, you can purchase ethically while being a bit easier on the budget!
