Yesterday while my husband had a private yoga session, Emerson and I went to the farmers market and met up with my mom and sister. We had brunch on the hill overlooking the market while Emerson ran around and played with her friends. It was a wonderful way to spend the early part of the afternoon, and wore Emerson out enough to take an afternoon nap which was quite a treat for us!

How gorgeous is this scarf from NEPALI by TDM Design?  Not only is the scarf beautiful, but it supports a beautiful cause.  NEPALI by TDM Design works directly with predominantly women cottage industries in Nepal to support women weavers and women craftsmanship.  Their company provides sustainable income to Nepalese women and helps weavers and their families break the cycle of poverty by providing them above market compensation and access to education and health care.  In addition, NEPALI is investing in the future by putting weavers’ children through school as well as funding essential healthcare services.  As for the scarves themselves, NEPALI by TDM Design accessories are made from natural materials such as silk, cashmere, bamboo, modal and wool and eco-friendly azo-free dyes; they are eco-conscious, socially responsible, and also quite stylish!  I am proud to be a brand ambassador for NEPALI by TDM Designs, expect to see more of their scarves and accessories on me in the near future.  And if you would like to know more about the company or get a scarf of your own, check them out on Facebook, Twitter, or visit their Website!

    I just luv this, and think u look super cute. I don’t think I could be brave enough to wear some thing like this, but maybe I need to not be so critical about myself.
    I luv the scarf

    I just stumbled upon your blog and I’m already hooked! I have to say that seeing someone with legs very similar to mine rocking those shorts made me reconsider my own style options. I am on a never-ending journey of body acceptance, and look forward to seeing your posts in my reader!

    Super cute outfit! I love a simple white t-shirt but don’t like how my large boobs are center stage in one. I’m totally going to cover em up with a colorful scarf.

    I am very pleased with the casual, carefee vibe of this outfit. I think I may to to recreate it if my cutoffs still fit! Kudos to you for supporting such an awesome cause, even though it is a bit (read: A LOT) out of my price range.

    P.S. The Frida bag just won you 12380759908544497 cool points in my book. Too bad cool points don’t mean anything; it’s kind of like “Who’s Line Is It Anyway.”

      Yes, the scarves are NOT cheap, but if there are good-hearted people out there with the income, I hope they’ll consider these scarves over another that only pads the pockets of one individual!

      And thanks mamacita, I’ll take those cool points!! 🙂

    This is a beautiful scarf! The Breast Cancer scarves that they sell at Bloomingdales every year are always beautiful and I know is helping find a cure to an ugly disease.

    I love that Frida Kahlo bag; being part Mexican as her work holds a special place from my birthplace!
    Your outfit is cute and casual, but am I the only one that at first glance thinks the scarf looked like dripping blood? I had to take a second look to see the pretty pattern from the beads and fringe.
    My weekend was washing clothes and cleaning the house–a much needed chore. But, I enjoyed it nonetheless.

      Oh no, dripping blood? That’s too funny! And I really love weekends where I can get much-needed chores completed, it’s so liberating and therapeutic.

    Is it just me, or is the blog seeming more “commercial” lately? I agree the scarf is for a good cause, but I feel like the tone of the blog is changing from, “Here’s how I’ve put existing pieces together for a new look” and more into, “This is a service or product you should check out!”
    I know we all have the choice to not visit the blog if this bothers us, but rather than just bail I felt this was worth mentioning. I have a suggestion (not because I’m an expert in blogging but because in my job ts not acceptable to highlight a problem without identifying at least one possible solution): What if you alternated non-commerical posts with commercial ones? You’d still get to highlight products or services you like and are compensated for, but it would keep the “normal, down to earth” tone that attracted some (many?) of your readers.

      I hear what you’re saying (writing) and I totally get it. I have received a few freebies lately and have been pretty vocal about them. The thing is the things I get free and choose to promote are things I really truly like or believe in. You’ll see me wear a few c/o pieces that I never write about, and others I do. I also will write in detail about pieces that I buy with my own money in detail because I believe so much in them. It sucks when a blog becomes so commercial you can’t tell the owner’s true personal style or what she actually likes, and I hope to never be that way. I have always been pretty vocal like this, you can go back years in my archives and find me writing hundreds of words about a single product, I think that it’s just lately I have had more opportunities to experience pretty cool companies and products.

      As for NEPALI by TDM Designs, they just sent me a cool scarf, I could have very easily not written the paragraph about them, I wasn’t contracted or compensated to do so. I did because in a world of Forever 21 and Modcloth and Walmart, it is pretty awesome to know of a company who does good while creating beautiful and well-made pieces. And with Gwynnie Bee last week, the concept got me so darn excited I felt I HAD to go into a ton of detail, even though I could have easily gotten away with a sentence or two in an outfit post. I promise you will never see me promoting stuff on this blog that I don’t really like, and you will not only see me promote things I get for free. And your last sentence about tone really hit home for me – that is something I really care about, and will watch. While I do want this blog to be successful, I never want to do it by sacrificing my original tone and self. So I honestly, truly thank you for speaking up and I will be watching that. THANK YOU!!!
