Tie Bell Sleeve Top || Shopping With A Cause To Empower Youth (That’s The Best Kind)

As most of you already know, my 9-5 job before I had Harper, and transitioned to blogging full time, involved working with “at risk” youth and their families as a Marriage and Family Therapists. It was often heart wrenching work, as I watched young teens struggle to find their place in the world…. whether it resulted from a lack of direction from their parents, mental illness, outside placement due to problematic behaviors… or a combination of all three…. I found that most wanted nothing more than to feel more empowered in their lives, they simply couldn’t figure out how that would look for them. Throughout this work, I came in contact with different agencies that looked to provide these individuals with that sense of purpose. So, whenever an opportunity presented itself to give back to those groups on a personal basis, I often did so….

Enter Treasure & Bond, a brand exclusive to Nordstrom. For every item purchased from the line, a donation is prompted to empower youth (you can read more about the program here… including their biggest donation of $719,107). Shopping with a cause? Um, count me in. It was only natural then that when I was looking for a neutral colored sweater a few weeks ago, that I started with the line. I stumbled across this slightly slouchy (just how I like them….) v-neck sweater. It’s lightweight (great for these So. Cal fall temps) and the tie sleeves are super cute. I opted to pair it with these super comfortable, everyday, trousers for a laid back and comfortable look.

A few other items that I am currently loving from the line (which are all under $100 and on trend) include this pleated sleeve hoodie sweatshirt (easily pairs with the pants I am wearing), ruffle sleeve tee, one shoulder ribbed sweater (the cream color is so gorgeous), sheer metallic sweater (perfect for a casual night out), easy basic tee, embellished crop jeans, and these white studded loafers. I also think these block heel over the knee boots are an excellent under $100 find!

It’s nice to know that there is a way to give back when you’re making a purchase for yourself, so if you’re all about charitable shopping, be sure to shop the line!

  1. Unrelated to this post but I saw on insta stories you used a charcoal mask and tea tree oil for you chin break out and was wondering if that helped? My chin has been breaking out lately. Thanks!
