Piperlime's Moments of Chic


Wondering what to wear this fall? Think fall florals, cropped sweaters, and slip-on sneakers. Wondering where to get all of this at one-stop shop? Piperlime.com is pretty amazing when it comes to their selections (their buyers are on POINT) and their flexible price points go from SAVE to SPLURGE. I tend to stick to the STEAL sections, once known as girl on a budget, since girlfriend is always on a budget. 





Sweater: c/o JOA via Piperlime  Skirt: NastyGal (on sale)  Purse: Lo and Sons Claremont Crossbody (borrowed from Lydia)  

Piperlime is basically a shoppable magazine, with a curated selection from their guest editors (love, LOVE everything Olivia Palermo picks!!), which is easy on the eyes. This fall, I'm all about playing with textures and skirts. Gotta flaunt those bare legs before the vortex swoops in, and I heard this winter is going to be extra painful. 

On the outfit deets: since my Joa sweatshirt had a boxy cut, I paired it with a skater skirt - more so for the allusion of curves haha. For those of you trying to do the grid trend I find sticking with neutrals to be a good base. Or, if you want to go bold pair it with floral print, bright colors, or animal (think big cats) print. 

For my blogging friends and stylish readers, you also get a chance to feature your latest Piperlime purchases on their style feed by using #momentsofchic on Instagram. Piperlime also came out with their own collection which if you haven't seen yet you should. I shot one of their pieces a while back, but due to bad lighting and really bad hair vibes those photos will never see the light of day... Unless I do one a post dedicated to outtakes - then maybe. You'd get a good laugh.

Get Involved with OneSight

The other night I was introduced to OneSight, and it basically opened my eyes to something I would have never thought about: the global vision crisis. Yes, there's a vision crisis, and yes there is something we can do about it.

I, for one, need my glasses to see and am so lucky to have a healthcare network that can give me the care and sight that I need. So, if there's anything I can do to make sure others can see as well, I will of course pass it forward and hope you do too.

In honor of World Sight Day (which was on Oct. 9th), OneSight offered me and a few others a glimpse into what it's like to be one of the 563 million people who can't see and shared a few of their stories as well. OneSight, a non-profit devoted to eradicating the global vision crisis, will simulate a visually impaired experience at www.thewaywesee.it (#thewayweseeit). For those 563 million people, the world is a blur and OneSight is committed to change that blur to a crystal clear vision; all with an eye exam and a pair of glasses. 

With this clear goal in mind OneSight has helped over 8.5 million people with charitable vision clinics around the world and sustainable vision centers in The Gambia and the United States.


Although World Sight Day is over, we can still learn about the work OneSight is doing at home and abroad, share their message and of course donate to the cause.
